My first musical love.
Need I say more? My favorite Christmas movie. Plus Bing... Plus Danny Kaye = AMAZING. Danny Kaye is a legend. And one of the most talented actors/comedians/people in the world.
Two words: Donald. O'Connor. Another one of the most talent people in the world.
Guess what? We're singing Singin' in the Rain in choir this year! Guess who's excited?
I like how Frank's name is before Gene Kelly's, even though Gene is the main character. (Edit: I just re-watched this movie yesterday. It's so cute! And Jose Iturbi is a genius)
Tonight I watched both I Love Melvin, and Singin' in the Rain, starring Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor. I Love Melvin is a little-known, cute, 72 minute musical with some great songs and dance numbers - including one where Donald O'Connor dances on roller skates!
And now I'm left thinking... Why can't we dress like this:
(Donald O'Connor and Vera-Ellen in Call Me Madman. Look at that skirt!)
(From I Love Melvin)
There's about a million others I could mention...
Fiddler on the Roof
Chess (this is one my parent's like that I know nothing about)
West Side Story
Bye Bye Birdie
Into the Woods
The Phantom of the Opera
The Sound of Music
My Fair Lady
Call Me Madman
I'm sure there's millions more.
So, until Tomorrow! Tomorrow! there's always, tomorrow! It's only a day away...
