What's Buzzworthy: Your Favorite Movie Musicals

What's Buzzworthy: Your Favorite Movie Musicals

I used to think I wasn't all that into movie musicals, but after seeing all your excellent picks for this week's Buzzworthy challenge, I've been swayed. I'd forgotten about many of these, and I'm happy to have been reminded. Thank you to everyone who participated! Here are some of the ones I found most noteworthy.

swwonder says of her pick, "One of my favourite films ever. I always wanted to be Tallulah!"

The Wizard of Oz
audreystar has this to say about her pick: "Who can get enough of the beautiful voice of a young Judy Garland as Dorothy or her three sidekicks? The music now is embedded in my brain as with most people. And 'Over the Rainbow' is one of the best and beautiful songs ever written or sang."

Three more greats if you

West Side Story
See, here's an example of one I forgot all about. I used to love this movie. Apparently, so did WhiplashGirlchild who writes, "My mother forced me to watch this when I was a little kid. I threw a tantrum because I didn't want to watch an "old" movie. Boy, was I eating crow... this has since been one of my favorite movies ever."

The Sound of Music
Chosen by missyosigirl and swwonder. I have to admit, I'm a sucker for this one, too.

This is Linda McP's selection, and she says, "This Oscar winning adaptation of Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist is a classic. Great score includes 'As Long As He Needs Me,' one of my all time favorites."

I really don't like musicals. They bore me...the only musical I liked was Rocky Horror Picture Show. And that's an out-of-the-norm musical.

FYI Bugsy Malone is not the same as Bugsy. Bugsy Malone = musical about kid gagsters with Scott Baio and Jodie Foster Bugsy = early 90's gangster movie with Warren Beatty They're not even about the same Bugsy (Bugsy Malone-made up gangster VS Bugsy Siegel-real life gangster)

I am shocked that Grease didn't make this list. By far my favorite! We even did a Grease Themed event in my soroity back in college! Gotta love John Travolta and Oliva back in the day!

Thanks for the mentions Buzz. I love Wizard of Oz too, although the Munchkins creep me out. I really want to see West Side Story, but every time it's on I always just catch the last 10 minutes.
