Good music, bad talk
25 November 2006 | by (Marietta GA) – See all my reviews

This is basically an early Cinemascope music film, with the MGM studio orchestra performing well-known numbers from several of their films as a 30th anniversary tribute. Missing was the most obvious, "Tara's Theme" from "Gone With The Wind", perhaps because GWTW was not originally an MGM production.

For some unknown reason, they decided to use a voice-over narration to tell us what each number was as it started, in an otherwise seamless concert. Audiences in the 1950s surely knew what these selections were, and even if they didn't, a superimposed title would have been a preferred way to handle it. What were they thinking?
