Singing and Dancing

Thanks to the miracle of Netflix, Doug and I have been doing a review of the greatest Hollywood musicals (according to some article that I read somewhere). We have seen some downright freaky films including a Busby Berkeley musical from the 40's which he must have directed while under the influence of something mind altering, and a Judy Garland and Gene Kelly musical which was so bad it was great. Now, while I'm a fan of Fred Astaire, Doug will go running from the room when I put one of his movies on. We were both very pleasantly surprised by "Royal Wedding" even though Jane Powell was no Ginger Rogers, which in this case was a good thing. Yes, the story was lame, but "Royal Wedding" has to be my favorite so far.

Of course, we watch a variety of films, and this evening's "Surf's Up" was a hoot (and the DVD extras were fascinating)!
