It's Showtime (1976)

** (out of 4)

Documentary in the same vein as That's Entertainment except this one highlight various animal acts throughout the history of cinema. Dogs, cats, horses, apes and various other animals get put in the spotlight as we see clips from hundreds of movies. Flipper, Frances the Talking Mule, Rin Tin Tin, Lassie and a few others get their own segments as well. I guess these types of documentaries have their benefits but I've always felt they were rather tame because it's hard to fully enjoy what you're seeing outside the context of their original films. I've seen a lot of the movies that have clips here and the clips just don't have the same magic as they do when viewed in the original film. The best moment in the film are the clips of Rin Tin Tin. I've only seen one of his movies but that one movie was enough to call this dog amazing but that doesn't come across here because the clips, while great looking, are backed by some silly music, which really takes away from the scene.
