Taking the Lion out for a Walk
31 July 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This promotional short touted the return of MGM to prominence, following the studio brand's reappearance in the public's mind due to the success of "That's Entertainment!" (1974). The studio wasn't in any clear and present danger in 1975, but had hit the skids in years earlier. With the glow the Gable and Garbo era mentioned by producer Dan Melnick long gone, MGM's great success with musicals was brought to focus during the 1970s. In hindsight, this really didn't give the studio much of a "new" identity, but there were good movies to be made. Bobby Van and Elaine Joyce lead a wealth of celebrity party-goers.

First, we visit "Logan's Run" (1976); the highlight is a costume show with David Hasselhoff modeling. "That's Entertainment II" (1976) is touted, with stars Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire appearing. "The Sunshine Boys" (1975) gets the next spotlight, with George Burns and Walter Matthau helping Richard Benjamin celebrate his birthday. Concluding his speech with a little song, Mr. Burns steals the show. "The Girl Most Likely To" (1973) succeed is "Sweet Revenge" (1976) star Stockard Channing. Best-looking are "Hearts of the West" (1975) producer Tony Bill and "The Wind and the Lion" (1975) star Candice Bergen.
