The latest adoption of Les Miserablés is my current favorite in musical movies. Its the first movie adaption that I really and thruly like and the fact that theyre singing live hugely increase the live feeling that so many musicals seems to miss! Well worth the expence of a movie theathre ticket!

My favorite movie musical is Cats followed by Phantom of the Opera and Rent. I also like Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, Singing in the Rain, and My Fair Lady.

most of the films people are mentioning are stage miusicals that were turned into films..not movie musicals.

Not sure what the distinction is...or are you meaning stage shows that were filmed vs. actual film musicals (ie, Cats versus West Side Story, or the 2000 Jesus Christ Superstar vs. the 1973 one)?

I think what is called "movie musical" is only movies with songs that are not an adaptation of a musical play. For example there never was a stage musical called New York New York before the film, while Rent, POTO, Les Mis, Carousel... were all on stage before being on screen.

Jesus Christ Superstar (1973).
For being recorded live and the acting performances: Les Miserables needs a big mention.

i mean a movie musical is an original musical written for the screen. (Gigi,Seven Brides For Seven Brothers,High SOciety) as oppossed to stage musicals turned into films (My Fair Lady,Les miz,Camelot..etc)

The Sound of Music would have to be my all-time favorite, though West Side Story and My Fair Lady come very close. Of the more recent movie musicals, I'm partial to Les Miserables.
