Hollywood Movie Musicals in Leavey Library (DVDs): New Additions To the Collection

New Additions to the Collection

"Set in exotic South America, the film's light-as-air plot revolves around a fish-out-of-water authoress struck by Cupid's arrow, dual identities, and, of course, those dancing fools, Veloz and Yolanda, the King and Queen of the tango who perform a show-stopping number set to the film's title tune."

"This lavish musical follows one fateful day as a beggar-poet and his daughter cross paths with a wicked wazir, wily temptress, a handsome prince, a magical curse, and exotic adventure."

La La Land
"A jazz pianist falls for an aspiring actress in Los Angeles. This original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing dreams."

Stop the World, I Want to Get Off
"It is all the world is Littlechap's stage, and the beleaguered, wisecracking hero of this captivating 'new-style' musical by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley is your guide for the tuneful life's journey of an average bloke seeking love, wealth and career success. Shot on its original circus-ring set during a performance at the Lyric Hammersmith, the film offers a front-row seat for the charming mummery and incisive commentary of the London/Broadway hit."
