Product Description:

During the 1950s, musical masterpieces that have yet to be equaled were produced in Cinemascope with stereophonic sound. These two episodes explore how the post-war years were alive with bold experimentation in musical film. Later in the decade, Rock & Roll became the musical choice of the younger generation and movie musicals followed suit. Highlights of this 2-part program include: Films based on smash Broadway musicals become the rage with hits like "The King and I," "Oklahoma!," "Carousel," and "South Pacific," a pretty starlet with no musical training named Marilyn Monroe takes the country by storm in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,' favorites from the previous decade continue to delight audiences in films starring the likes of Betty Grable, Esther Williams and Jane Powell, Judy Garland makes a comeback in "A Star is Born," while the fresh faces of Mitzi Gaynor, Leslie Caron, Doris Day and Debbie Reynolds capture the hearts of America, Rock & Roll films starring Elvis Presley are rolled out, while Pat Boone becomes one of the last stars to be put under contract to a major studio.
