WARNER BROTHERS BOX SETS HIT VOLUME THREE Part Three
I saved the best for the last. Not that I don't like Bette Davis or Gangster flicks, but because sometimes you just need a musical to brighten your day. And by getting to the third volume we get some pretty rare stuff that is finally seeing the light of day. Let's run them down, shall we?
HIT THE DECK
DEEP IN MY HEART
NANCY GOES TO RIO
TWO WEEKS WITH LOVE
BROADWAY MELODY OF 1936
BROADWAY MELODY OF 1938
BORN TO DANCE
LADY BE GOOD
These are some great musicals from the wild tale of KISMET with Howard Keel who is great in this flick. Anyone who loves SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS will find this to be just as fun as that one.
And all the stars! I already mentioned Howard Keel, but we also get Russ Tamblyn, Gene Kelly, Cyd Charisse, Jane Powell, Jose Ferrer and many, many more.
Like the rest of the box sets in the Warner Brothers Collections you get a plethora of extras. Each film has a cartoon, some kind of short film, some of them have missing musical numbers that probably haven't seen the light of day in quite some time.
If you're a big musical fan and tired of watching the same old musicals over and over again, then this is definitely something that you will want to add to your collection.
