Most of those are new to me.   I just watched Good News recently, review is up in the "Respond" thread.  My rankings of the ones I've seen:

42nd Street
Le Million

The Young Girls of Rochefort
A Mighty Wind

Hallelujah
Monterey Pop
Umbrellas of Cherbourg

Good News


42nd Street is almost a "teal" film (i.e., top 100-worthy) for me.

 :) I put Good News on my list because I read your review and realized I hadn't seen it. I thought I had, but it was only the clips from That's Entertainment. Funny how memory works. Does teal mean masterpiece in your ratings?

Correct.

Good News has some nice tunes and choreography.  It's just that the rest of it is so terribly bland.

Where is Pennies From Heaven (Herb Ross)?
Kevin: Yes, why does there have to be evil?

Supreme Being: I think it has something to do with free will.

I've been meaning to do a musicals thing for a while now. Maybe I'll follow you along as I haven't seen anything on that list apart from the Jimi Plays Monterey and Shake!:Otis at Monterey parts of Monterey Pop.

This is the all interactive, all the time thread! How' bout, I review the 1938 film and you review the 1981 one and then we'll see if they have anything in common.

Awesome 1SO and Corndog! Feel free to review any other musicals you come across and I'll add it to the list. 1SO are you okay if I link your musical marathon on to my first post? I would like to have easy access to any musical marathons I come across. I think roujin had a Gene Kelly marathon somewhere.

The only musicals I like (because I really don't like musicals) are:

Hair
The Music Man
Pennies From Heaven
West Side Story
Kevin: Yes, why does there have to be evil?

Supreme Being: I think it has something to do with free will.

That having been said, I look forward to you schooling me, Sandy.  :)
