This fun filled exploration of the history of musical movies begins with Busby Berkeley's exquisite black and white choreographed extravaganzas that lightened the dark days of the Depression, continues through the rousing wartime songfests of the forties, into the heyday of the great MGM spectaculars and on to the present day with recent smash hits like Chicago and Dreamgirls. The film showcases extraordinary movie clips featuring the best tunes and choreography ever produced, rarely seen behind-the-scenes footage and new interviews with Liza Minnelli, Shirley MacLaine, Mickey Rooney, Rita Moreno, Debbie Reynolds, Leslie Caron, Jane Russell, Tab Hunter, Joel Grey, directors like Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) and Rob Marshall (Chicago) among many others.
