Many Hollywood stars are reconvening at the M-G-M Studio, the filming site for many of their most famous movies, to discuss M-G-M movie musical history for the film That's Entertainment! (1974). In 1972, M-G-M's worldwide production head Daniel Melnick assigned a team of editors, researchers and lab technicians to pour over the many musicals from the studio's vaults to compile this retrospective under the guidance of producer/director Jack Haley Jr.. They will not only need their technical expertise, but also their memories of what the great M-G-M musicals meant and mean to the public movie going audience. At the time when these movies were being made, M-G-M had more stars under contract than all of the other major Hollywood studios combined. The studio was not averse to taking risks, showcasing big name non-musical stars in musical numbers, or giving an unknown talent a break. It could take these risks because of the financial resources available. The lavishness of such musicals are ... Written by Huggo

About what you'd expect from a promotional film.
23 June 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a promotional film that was made for the release of "That's Entertainment" and is included on the bonus disc for this feature film. And, like any promotional film, it's meant to drum up excitement for the upcoming film--so there are no huge surprises. In addition to many contemporary clips of stars talking about MGM in 1974, there are lots of clips of classic MGM films--sort of like a mini version of "That's Entertainment"--a taste of what the feature film is like.

One thing surprised me about this featurette is the quality of the print. It was highly degraded and scratchy--but fortunately the film on disc 1 was restored and much more watchable. I also thought it was ironic how MGM talked about their great past and how they were celebrating it--and only a few years later sold off all their props and costumes for next to nothing! A but hypocritical, huh?

By the way, one thing they said repeatedly during this film is that 'MGM created the musical'. Well, they didn't. In the early days of talkies, Warner Brothers was at least as active in making musicals and made some of the very best ones in the late 20s and early 30s (along with MGM). The difference is that soon Warner lost interest in this genre and MGM was the premier musical studio of the late 30s on in regard to musicals. Just wanted to set the record straight.
