With the coming of sound movies as a commercial proposition in the late 1920s, the importance of music in the cinema grew enormously. The arrival of color, allied to the technical developments in recording itself, gave to the great film makers a fabulous palette with which to realize the transfer to the screen of the Broadway hits, capturing forever the great theatrical shows of the century. Thus two great entertainment disciplines, both essential products of America, were joined: the Broadway musical & the Hollywood film. The history of this genre, with never-before-published material & reminiscences from the film makers, composers & stars themselves. Photos.(less)
