Musicals at the Movies


For nearly 100 years, song and dance have been part
of the movies. This course will show how movies have
changed from presenting original songs to presenting mixes
of existing songs and also big-screen adaptations of stage
musicals. It will provide background on performers (Fred
and Ginger, Judy Garland), composers and lyricists (the
Gershwins, Harry Warren), directors (Vincente Minnelli) and
choreographers (Busby Berkeley, Bob Fosse). The course
will include many clips from films using a largely chronological
approach, comprising favorites from the 1920s to the
present, with an emphasis on “Golden Age” musicals.
