Description by OLDIES.com:
Turner Classic Movies presents a Great Classic Legends Film Collection featuring classic musicals. This Broadway Musicals collection includes:
This vibrant saga of riverboat lives and loves has glorious stars Kathryn Grayson, Ava Gardner, Howard Keel, Marge and Gower Champion in Technicolor radiance, timeless Jerome Kern/Oscar Hammerstein songs and and unforgettable outcry against racial bigotry. Like Ol’ Man River, its delights just keep rollin’ along.
ANNIE GET YOUR GUN: Betty Hutton (as Annie Oakley) and Howard Keel (as Frank Butler) star in this sharpshootin' funfest. An Oscar (R) winner for adaptation scoring based on the Broadway smash boasting Irving Berlin's beloved songs, including "Doin' What Comes Naturally", "I Got Lost In His Arms" and the anthemic "There's No Business Like Show Business".
KISS ME KATE: When squabbling ex-married's Kathryn Grayson and Howard Keel are cast as squabbling Renaissance romantics in a musical "The Taming Of The Shrew", life imitates art, art imitates life and it all proves no musical comedy imitates this backstage / onstage delight from the Broadway hit with 14 peerless Cole Porter songs. It's all "Too Darn Hot".
SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS: The perfect marriage of song and dance! Backwoods boys inspired by romance and the lure of hot biscuits raid the local town for brides. Uh-oh: The would-be brides insist the fellas first become respectable! Howard Keel and Jane Powell head a leaping whoop for joy in this exuberant Oscar (R) winner.
