Movie Info

This represents MGM's 1976 sequel to its enormously successful compilation film That's Entertainment (1974). In lieu of the multi-narrator device of the first film, director Gene Kelly chooses to limit the hosting chores to two people: himself, and his friendly rival Fred Astaire. Another departure from the first film was the decision to include comedy and dramatic highlights from MGM's past, with such stars as Greta Garbo (seen in a montage of "I want to be alone"s), Greer Garson, Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Jean Harlow, Wallace Beery, Marie Dressler, Red Skelton, the Marx Brothers, and Laurel and Hardy (though the last-named team's vignettes are culled from Hal Roach productions which were merely released by MGM). Be sure and catch That's Entertainment from the beginning for Saul Bass' opening credits, incorporating a variety of title-sequence styles: waves crashing on the shore, pages turning in a book, and a J. Arthur Rank-style gong.

    This sequel brings you more of the same, musical and dance numbers from movies of the 40s and 50s, nothing new. Only watch if you liked the first one.

    An interesting review of Hollywood's fancy past.

    I think there's something to say about me if I prefer watching old movie clips to an actual breathing film. I liked the first one better, and the cohesiveness of this thing was definitely lacking, but the inclusion of KISS ME KATE made me very, very pleased.

    MUSICALS ARE EXPLORED FURTHER...
