Description
This TCM Greatest Classic Films Set includes these four great films:

Show Boat
A vivid and vibrant saga of riverboat lives and loves has glorious stars (Kathryn Grayson, Ava Gardner, Howard Keel, Marge and Gower Champion) in Technicolor radiance, timeless Jerome Kern/Oscar Hammerstein II songs and an equally timeless outcry against racial bigotry. Like Ol' Man River, its delights just keep rollin' along.

Annie Get Your Gun
Betty Hutton (as Annie Oakley) and Howard Keel (as Frank Butler) star in this sharpshootin' funfest an Oscar winner for adaptation scoring based on the Broadway smash boasting Irving Berlins beloved songs, including Doin' What Comes Naturally, I Got Lost in His Arms and the anthemic There's No Business like Show Business.

Seven Brides For Seven Brothers
The perfect marriage of song and dance! Backwoods boys inspired by romance and the lure of hot biscuits raid the local town for brides. Un-uh: The would-be brides insist the fellas first become respectable! Howard Keel and Jane Powell head a leaping whoop for joy in this exuberant Oscar winner.

Kiss Me Kate
When squabbling ex-married's Kathryn Grayson and Howard Keel are cast as squabbling Renaissance romantics in a musical The Taming of the Shrew, life imitates art, art imitates life and it all proves no musical comedy imitates this backstage/onstage delight from the Broadway hit with 14 peerless Cole Porter songs. It's all Too Darn Hot!

Comments about this product:

Show Boat: format not good, everyone looks wide, grainy with flashes in some parts, poor quality. The other movies: Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, Kiss Me Kate and Annie Get Your Gun were all good quality.

Comments about this product:

These collection DVD's are so much fun for fans of movies that date to their generation. (ie. when we were teenagers).
I am also handicapped (but still happy, thank you)and having a collection of movies on one DVD makes it less difficult than changing DVD's for each separate film. Great work on the Collection DVD and keep it up! Thanks, Angie

          I love most musicals. Especially the old ones I watched with my mother and my mother-in-law. All of our kids grew up sharing this love with me. What is not to like about happy musicals with beautiful dancing and great songs?
