Fans of MGM Musicals will certainly want to check this one out. It starts off with Judy Garland singing the title track, which is actually a cut scene from ZIEGFELD GIRL. We are then shown an old-time theater where silent pictures were shown with a man at a piano doing the score. After this we pretty much get MGM telling themselves how great they are by showing clips from THE Broadway MELODY, THE GREAT ZIEGFELD, BORN TO DANCE, BABES IN ARMS and many more of their hit Musicals. You pretty much have the idea of what this 9-minute short does. As I said, if you're a fan of MGM and their best genre then you're going to enjoy seeing the clips but those who are unfamiliar with the actual films would probably be best adviced to seek out the full movies. It was nice getting to see the Garland footage even though it has been shown in movies since this one.
