What is this - a time exposure?

How sad that the 'age of the movie musicals' has been allowed to fade into the sunset.
I was eleven years old when I saw "I Love Melvin" and, immediately, fell in love with Donald O'Connor. He was teamed with Debbie Reynolds and I was sooooo jealous of her. It was my dream to become a dancer/singer/actor when I 'grew up'. But, for then, I lived for those visits to the local theatre where I could fill my soul with the glitz, glamour and wonder of it all. At that time, I had no way of knowing that this wonderful genre would, over the years, fade away from absolute glory to the dusty archives of today. Thank God for these websites, where we surviving lovers can rekindle those old flames by buying or renting our favorites. How comforting to know the actors will be forever young, in our eyes; and, in our hearts, so will we.
