I altered my list from yesterday. I can't believe I forgot to include The Blue Angel, and also wasn't thinking in terms of Perceval Le Gallois being a musical, which of course it is.

I left Guys and Dolls off of my list. Shame on me.

The Music Man is tremendous fun, with a lot of singable songs with great lyrics.

And if I were listing important or great stage musicals, Oklahoma! would be near the top of my list. Too bad that the film suffers from wooden direction and a use of color filters that now seem dated, but that I also hated at the time.

A Hard Day's Night would be at the top. I love that movie.

I haven't seen too many musicals, but I guess my list would include Fiddler on the Roof, West Side Story, a bunch of Disney flicks, Moulin Rouge, and South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. Posted Image
