good, but slightly superficial
15 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'll rate this 7 for the clips alone, and the snippets of interview with the great stars of musical theatre and film, but this really is a quick and superficial overview of the genre, not really helped by the constant introductions and interruptions by host Shirley Jones.

Good to see people like Rita Moreno, Shirley MacLaine, Mickey Rooney, and Liza Minnelli discussing their work, but this documentary goes nowhere near deep enough. Given it has such a short running time, that's not surprising, but other documentaries have managed it before ('That's Entertainment' for one).

A bit of a disappointment really, given no new snippets for the musical fan to enjoy and digest, and saying nothing we don't already know. But worth watching as a diversion.
