Movie Info

It's ironic that MGM, in such dire financial straits in 1974 that it was selling its fabled back lot and auctioning off artifacts from past movie triumphs, enjoyed one of its biggest box-office hits with That's Entertainment, a compilation of musical highlights from the studio's golden days. Onscreen hosts Fred Astaire, Bing Crosby, Gene Kelly, Peter Lawford, Liza Minnelli, Donald O'Connor, Debbie Reynolds, Mickey Rooney, James Stewart, and Elizabeth Taylor introduce the various film clips while

'Boy, do we need it now' was catchphrase when this MGM musical salute was first released--and it stands even more today.

The cinematic equivalent of a sustained two-hour orgasm, That's Entertainment! is pure pleasure from first frame to last.

That's Entertainment! cannot and is not a substitute for seeing the musicals themselves, in their entirety.

It's good, but contrary to the onscreen evidence, MGM did not make all the best musicals.

Audience Reviews for That's Entertainment

This is a fantastic compilation of musical and comedy numbers from movies of the 40s and 50s, with all the big stars from the era as well. I bet if I watched it now I'd know which numbers came from which movies.
