Using clips from several unidentified films of the preceding decade, featuring many well-known stars of the day, this short demonstrates that an endless variety of music to entertain all tastes can be heard when you go to the movies.
This short shows that no matter what type of music a person likes, he will find it at the movies. Short excerpts from over a dozen films are shown, with popular stars performing songs or classical works. Musical styles include popular, jazz, classical, Latin, big-band, and opera.Written by

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science produced this documentary, which is pretty much just a short promo piece. The music informs people, as if they didn't already know, that they can find all sorts of music types by going to the movies. We see clips from various movies including Judy Garland in ZIEGFELD GIRL, Danny Kaye in UP IN ARMS, Bing Crosby in ROAD TO RIO and Lily Pons in CARNEGIE HALL. Needless to say, this thing only runs around six-minutes and naturally most movie fans are going to want to see the actual films. The clips selected here appear to be taken from the theatrical trailers, which might have been a cheap way for them to get around paying any rights. Do the clips make one want to rush out and see the movies? Not really, which is the biggest disappointment of this short.
