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

New Additions to the Collection

By the Light of the Silvery Moon
"A small town family turning the corner from World War I."

George White's Scandals
"A Broadway sensation, a series of revues bursting with comedy, music and long-stemmed American beauties. The movie celebrates that tradition with a knockabout comic and a song-and-joke man playing Scandals stars and lovebirds separated by his sourpuss sis."

Gold Diggers in Paris
"The Gold Diggers are heading for Paris, bringing their feathers, frills, New York tawk -- and ballet shoes! A French diplomat has mistaken 43rd Street's Club Ballé for the American Academy Ballet, and the chorus cuties aren't going to turn down a free trip to the City of Light over such a tiny misunderstanding,"

Gold Diggers of 1937
"What's a chorine to do after her show flops? Become a gold digger! The cuties do so en masse as the Gold Diggers of 1937, kicking Depression Era blues in the keister. Dick Powell plays an insurance agent with musical ambitions, Joan Blondell is a showgirl who gives up spangles for a stenographer's pad and ... well who watches any Diggers for it's plot? Instead, watch as dance creator Busby Berkeley turns a garden party into a tap-happy romp.."

The Greatest Showman
"An original musical screenplay brings to life the story of P.T. Barnum and his creation of 'the greatest show on Earth'. Rising from nothing, P.T. sets out to make a better life for his family. His creativity and drive take him on an fantastic journey beyond what he or anyone else could have imagined. In the end he creates a magical experience that will be enjoyed and celebrated by generations to come."

Hollywood Hotel
"If you love music, check into Hollywood Hotel. The story's about a filmland newbie caught between a spoiled star and her likeable look-alike. But the movie's about Busby Berkeley's ace direction--and music, music, music."

King of Jazz
"Made during the early years of the movie musical, this exuberant revue was one of the most extravagant, eclectic, and technically ambitious Hollywood productions of its day. Starring the bandleader Paul Whiteman, then widely celebrated as the King of Jazz, the film drew from Broadway variety shows to present a spectacular array of sketches, performances by such acts of the Rhythm Boys (featuring a young Bing Crosby), and orchestral numbers--all lavishly staged by veteran theater director John Murray Anderson."

Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again
"Join the celebration, sing and dance, and discover how it all began! Ten years after Mamma Mia! The Movie premiered, you're invited back to the magical Greek island of Kalokairi in an all-new musical sequel based on the songs of ABBA. Sophie is now pregnant, and like her mother Donna, she'll need to take risks. The film's original cast returns, with new additions including Lily James as a young Donna, Andy Garcia and Oscar winner Cher."

Mary Poppins Returns
"After Mary Poppins departed London, Jane and Michael Banks grew up into loving and responsible adults. When Michael becomes a single father of three children after the death of his wife, Mary Poppins revisits the Cherry Tree Lane home again to try to help Michael and his family cope and move beyond their grief. Time passes quickly for most normal mortals. Mary Poppins has never been normal. Although it's now the 1930s, she looks exactly the same. Her message to Michael, Annabel, John, George and Ellen, the family's housekeeper, about enjoying life and loved ones is also still the same."

On Moonlight Bay
"Musical about a family that moves to a small town in Indiana, where their tomboy daughter@ begins a romance with the neighbor across the street."

Pagan Love Song
"A man from Ohio inherits a coconut plantation and falls in love with a half-American, half-Tahitian beauty. Song and swim ensues in the tropical paradise."

She has given up on her dream to become a successful singer, until she meets Jack, who immediately sees her natural talent. This is the raw and passionate tale of Jack and Ally, two artistic souls coming together, on stage and in life. Theirs is a complex journey through the beauty and the heartbreak of a relationship struggling to survive."

Tea for Two
"Wealthy stage-struck Nan Carter strikes a bet that she can say 'no'  to everything for 48 hours. If she wins, she gets the $25,000 she needs to back a Broadway musical vehicle for herself. She's determined, even if it means saying 'no' when the fellow she loves pops the question."

Too Many Girls
"Mr. Casey's daughter, Connie, wants to go to Pottawatomie College and without her knowledge he sends four football players as her bodyguards. The college is in financial trouble and her bodyguards use their salary to help the college. The football players join the college team, and the team becomes one of the best. One of the football players, Clint, falls in love with Connie, but when she discovers he is her bodyguard, she decides to go back East. The bodyguards follow her, leaving the team in the lurch.."

Varsity Show
