I love Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. The dance routines are to die for.

Singin' in the Rain for me too, but Meet Me in St. Louis doesn't drag too far behind. Top Hat and An American in Paris are beautiful films as well.

As far as musicals from the stage to screen, that's either Cabaret (though it's nothing like the musical), Fiddler on the Roof, or My Fair Lady.

I love all the classics. The dancing that people like Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Eleanor Powell and Gene Kelly (I know I'm missing some people) did is so AWESOME and so beautiful to watch. I WISH there was still a market for movie musicals like the ones those guys were in today.

As far as the "Blockbuster" movie musicals of more recent (Chicago, Dreamgirls, Mamma Mia, Nine, Les Mis), I really enjoyed watching all of them. Dreamgirls was probably my favorite

Jesus Christ Superstar is my all-time favorite film and one of the major influences in everything I like and aspire towards in artistic endeavors...so, yeah, that one.


Also adore Jacques Demy's work.

Gotta go with Little Shop of Horrors. The performance of the leads really set the bar for the show.
