Abstract:

"Leading film historian Jeanine Basinger reveals, with her trademark wit and zest, the whole story of the Hollywood musical in the most telling, most incisive, most detailed, most gorgeously illustrated book of her long and remarkable career"--Jacket.

From Fred Astaire to La La Land, Basinger examines a dazzling array of stars, strategies, talents, and innovations in the history of musical cinema. Whether analyzing a classic Gene Kelly routine, relishing a Nelson-Jeanette operetta, or touting a dynamic hip hop number she provides a guide to the many ways that song and dance have been seen-- and heard-- on film. She includes extensive portraits of the singers and dancers, and focuses on many beloved, iconic films as well as unduly obscure gems. -- adapted from jacket
