The movie's fun from beginning to end. It's not camp, and it's not nostalgia: It's a celebration of a time and place in American movie history when everything came together to make a new art form.
'Boy, do we need it now' was catchphrase when this MGM musical salute was first released--and it stands even more today.
...great singing and dancing, among the greatest ever put on film.
Like no other industry, Hollywood has the unique ability to celebrate itself
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.
Sure, it's just a video compilation piece, no different than something the History Channel might've produced, but if one has grown up watching the films in this compilation it transforms before your eyes, assuming the teary qualities of a deathbed goodbye of a hypochondriac, weakly whispering "remember the good times when ..." into your ear. You know that they're not dying, but nonetheless feel the strings of your heart pulled anyway and have to admire the work of a master manipulator despite yourself.
You talk about a great musical compilation film? This one is definetly it. It is one of the best's films I have ever seen. Audiences will never look at musicals the same way again. There is so much history and so much that went behind the old studio days at MGM and ultimatley MGM's downfall. My fav scenes without a doubt goes to Esther Williams in "Million Dollar Mermaid" and Fred Astaire in "Royal Wedding". Terrific stuff.
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.
Sometimes all you need is a bunch of old film clips and a handful of aging stars to create a masterpiece. This was truly the Golden Age of Hollywood. I NEED to own this collection, immediately.
