    Proof positive that MGM were the only show in town when it came to great musicals, especially those produced by Arthur Freed. Here are two hours of unforgettable sequences, with sometimes poignant links by the likes of Astaire, Kelly, Sinatra etc from the MGM backlot. As time passes even these sections have become bitter-sweet.

    Wonderful documentary celebrating the history of MGM musicals through it's classic numbers hosted by some of it's biggest stars. The narrators show the right mix of love & respect for Hollywood's Golden musical age, & even poke fun at themselves (Jimmy Stewart & Liz Taylor openly admit to their lack of musical talent, with the segments to prove it). The real star is the collection of brilliant musical pieces, from "The Wizard of Oz" to "Easter Holiday" to "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" & "Singing in the Rain", this is proof positive, as Frank Sinatra says, that no one made musicals better than MGM.

    A fantastic collection of some of the finest musical sequences in the history of film. It really covers a lot of ground. Even those who have seen their share of MGM musicals will likely be introduced to something new. (First and only viewing - 12/9/2014)

    Like a clip show, but with a fine set of in-vision narrators to tell the MGM musical story that allows you to see some of the stars personality despite it being heavily scripted and self-serving.

    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.

    After almost 40 years since its release, TE1 is just as much fun as it was in 1974.
