    Hi dodoy,

    Yes I like musicals, I am not sure which is my favourite. I like the ones you do, I also like "The King and I" and "Carousel", there are so many to choose from.

    Aloha dodoy,

    Welcome Aboard! A good question I might add...Well, I come to think about three films which are tied for first place as my favorites:

    *I'm Singing In The Rain*
    *An American In Paris*
    *The Sound Of Music*
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Hi Dodoy
    I notice you sneaked in a crafty advertisement under cover of your innocent sounding question! Naughty! But since you ask, I too like the Sound of Music, I love Richard Rodgers' tunes and I adore Julie Andrews' singing voice, even if her acting isn't up to much!

    How about a very old one: Meet Me in St Louis? I just adore it. Judy Garland, trolley cars, great songs, snow people, a degree of silliness and the opportunity for a really good cry towards the end. Who could ask for more?

    Cheers

    Vicki

    Ah, The Wizard of Oz. I think one of the most magical moments in film is when Dorothy wakes up from black and white Kansas and finds herself in full colour Oz.

    Vicki -thanks for reminding us of that magical moment - truly imaginative use of the medium of film. It must have had an enormous impact on the first audiences who saw it.

    I remember once hearing Andrew Lloyd Weber being interviewed and saying that his father was an admirer of Richard Rodgers and told the young Andrew that when he had written a song as good as "Some enchanted evening" he could consider himself a composer of musicals. Perhaps one day he will ........ John

    Talking There are so many great selections

    But what popped into my mind (shh - it's early here), was a film I first saw in New York in 1939. It was also my first introduction (that I can remember) to classical music. Fantasia.

    Well, of course all of the famous Broadway musicals are great such as the Rodgers-Hammerstein classics, State Fair, Oklahoma, South Pacific, Sound of Music, King and I, and so on, and the Lerner-Lowe hits like My Fair Lady, Brigadoon, Camelot, and the works of Cole Porter such as Kiss Me Kate. To go on, there is Lionel Bart's Oliver, Sondheim's works, and so on. But to change the picture to movies that are musical but not Broadway musicals, I love Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Umbrellas of Cherbourg by Legrand, and all those wonderful movies where music carries the film although the films are not truly musicals (no singing) such as Korngold's Sea Hawk, Captain Blood, and Adventures of Robin Hood, or the great Pride and Prejudice soundtrack by Marinelli, or Bernard Hermann's works, or...
