That's Entertainment! III Details


In 1974, MGM Studios released its first compilation of musical highlights from 45 years of Hollywood extravaganzas. Entitled [[Feature~V49303~That's Entertainment!~thatsentertainment]], it was a big box-office hit and inspired a second compilation two years later. Eighteen years went by before MGM tried again. The third installment of the series contains a total of 62 musical numbers and includes scenes from more than 100 films. The cavalcade of memories is hosted by nine stars from the old musicals: [[Performer~P97107~Gene Kelly~genekelly]], [[Performer~P76434~Esther Williams~elliswilliams]], [[Performer~P59782~Debbie Reynolds~debbiereynolds]], [[Performer~P108826~Mickey Rooney~mickeyrooney]], [[Performer~P33273~Lena Horne~lenahorne]], [[Performer~P1146~June Allyson~juneallyson]], [[Performer~P12398~Cyd Charisse~cydcharisse]], [[Performer~P205448~Ann Miller~annacmiller]], and [[Performer~P37315~Howard Keel~howardkeel]]. The film is loaded with outtakes and unfinished numbers that didn't make the cut of the original musicals. At many points, there is a split screen, showing the finished product as filmed as well as behind-the-scenes confusion. It's as much a comic "bloopers" TV show as a tribute to the heyday of the musical. ~ Michael Betzold, Rovi
