Storyline

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.

Promotional short for "That's Entertainment" has some good clips...
31 December 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

MGM captures the essence of the MGM musical with this short subject which is really a tribute to their forthcoming release of THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT.

Stars of MGM musicals talk briefly about their participation in these extraordinary films--talents like Bing Crosby, James Stewart, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Peter Lawford, Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Donald O'Connor, Mickey Rooney, Debbie Reynolds, Eleanor Powell, Clark Gable, Esther Williams--all shown in various musical moments.

What really stands out as a surprise is Clark Gable doing "Putting on the Ritz" from "Idiot's Delight." He doesn't look too comfortable, especially when contrasted with all the real MGM dancing talent.

Clips from HIT THE DECK, SINGIN' IN THE RAIN, AN AMERICAIN Paris, SHOW BOAT, MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS and BAND WAGON give the viewer a good idea of how elaborate and beautifully staged all these musicals were with some of the best talent before and behind the camera.
