1955 Motion Picture Theatre Celebration (1955)

** (out of 4)

George Murphy "hosts" this MGM short, which features the personality addresses the audience as he thanks theatre owners for bring movies to towns, updating their equipment for "new" Hollywood systems and of course raising money for good causes. The actor then introduces us to Ester Williams who quickly talks about her upcoming movie JUPITER'S DARLING. From this point on it's just one long MGM promo reel as we see clips from films like HIT THE DECK, MOONFLEET, INTERRUPTED MELODY and LOVE ME OR LEAVE ME. As you watch this short it becomes quite clear that the studio really didn't have too many good films released this year but there's no question the best known is LOVE ME OR LEAVE ME with James Cagney and Doris Day. It's a shame Cagney wasn't interviewed for this sequence but I'm going to guess that would have been too much trouble. If you've got nothing better to do and this short pops up on Turner Classic Movies then it's not totally worthless but at the same time there's very little here worth viewing. If you're unfamiliar with the films shown here then this short might introduce you to some new titles but on the whole there's nothing to remarkable here. The one thing is that it is shown 2.55:1, which was clearly the studio showing off this new format.
