See Meet Me in St. Louis!! It is totally insanely infectiously cheerful and insane, with Judy Garland's acting and the most blazing costumes and color filming I have seen anywhere. It has the "Clang clang clang went the trolley" song. Also, check this rumor from allmovie:

This is the film for which the director (Minnelli) resorted to telling a child actress (Margaret O'Brien) that her dog had been run over and killed, in order to get her to cry properly in the next scene to be shot.

I have a soft spot for On the Town, especially the tribal part in the museum of natural history.

I have a soft spot for musicals because they remind me of my childhood, when I was captivated by such things as the West Side Story soundtrack and Sound Of Music. There are many very well-written songs for musicals, and I've always respected that. I've often wished I knew more about musicals than I do, at least to the point that I could hear something and identify which production it came from.

I derive a squirmy kind of enjoyment from my "West Side Story" film soundtrack when I play it, maybe once a year. And I get a kick out of Norman Jewison's Jesus Christ Superstar,, just because the film's so nutty. (All those gleefully obvious anachronisms!) Mary Magdalene's and Judas Iscariot's songs are my favourites. Caiaphas' and the Pharisees' headgear has to be seen to be believed. The choreography's so silly and dated that it's irresistable. And, on occasion, it even rocks!

six years pass...

I decided 2011's New Yrz Rez is to watch musicals. One a week is what I am thinking would be a reasonable amount.

I own/watch more musicals than any other film genre. (49 reasons my wife thinks I'm gay...) They're my go-to cinematic comfort food.

Knock yourself out!
