    1. Singin' In The Rain - A (all-time Top 10)
    2. Seven Brides For Seven Brothers - A (thought this was good, bought the DVD, watched it 2-3 more times and now totally love it)
    3. On The Town - A- ("Did I hear right? Did you say the hippodrome?")
    4. Charade - B

    Own - 3

    Would like to see the other musicals especially Damn Yankees and The Pajama Game, Royal Wedding, Indiscreet, Bedazzled and The Little Prince

    What is "Movie Movie" Bill?

    Movie, Movie is a homage to the old 30s and 40s films, specifically the boxing film ("Dynamite Hands") and the musical ("Baxter's Beauties of 1933"), there's even a trailer in between.

    Both stories are filmed in the style of the 30's, complete with all the cliques and the gee-whiz dialogue.
    George C.Scott stars in both stories and the whole thing is quite amusing, but the musical is definitely better than the boxing story.

    Updated with The Pajama Game. A second tier musical, but worth watching just for the Reta Shaw tap dance.

    My wife is an Audrey Hepburn fan, so, of course I've seen the three that she is in.
