not That's Entertainment, but pretty good
28 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This first of two video compilations of musicals from the Fox studio showcases big stars Alice Faye and Betty Grable, but also provides a glimpse of other contract players in the golden age doing what they do best. As a compilation of musical sequences, it isn't a patch on the three retrospectives of MGM musicals, or 'That's Dancing', but it gives a fairly broad idea of what the Fox players and creatives were doing at the time.

I would have liked to have seen a bit more from behind the scenes, and a bit less of Joan Collins introducing and linking the material, but there's enough gems here to keep you watching. Not fantastic, and no great discoveries here (although it is always nice to see Bill Robinson's dances), but if you like musicals, there should be something to tempt you.
