Trivia

When introducing a clip of Cyd Charisse early in the film Fred Astaire says "Cyd Charisse. Lovely Cyd Charisse. How she danced." A little later Gene Kelly says exactly the same line when introducing another clip of her. See more »

Goofs

During the clip from Kiss Me Kate, Gene Kelly identifies the choreographer as Hermes Pan. But the clip shown, "From This Moment On", was actually choreographed by Bob Fosse, one of the dancers. See more »

Almost as good as Part 1
18 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire introduce more wonderful numbers from MGM musicals. This time drama and comedy clips have been added.

OK--there was no way this could be as good as Part 1. Most of the good material had been used there already. Also Astaire and Kelly were given some dreadful new lyrics to classic songs to sing and their introductions to segments were just terrible. It was NOT a good idea to have them dancing either. And I could have lived without the travelogue of Paris. Still, there's plenty of incredible material here.

Among the highlights: Wonderful opening credits (done by Saul Bass); Eleanor Powell tap-dancing; Greta Grabo dancing (!!); Robert Taylor singing (!!!); the Marx Brothers stateroom sequence from "A Night at the Opera" (unfortunately edited); From This Moments On from "Kiss Me Kate"; early Bing Crosby; Abbott & Costello; Tales from the Vienna Woods (which is actually pretty funny); Judy Garland singing "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas"; clips of dramatic and comedic stars; the I'll Build A Stairway to Paradise number; Bobby Van from "Small Town Girl"; etc etc.

The clips are put together without rhyme or reason--but that helps. You never know what's coming next. Worth catching but try to see the first one too.
