During the 1950s, musical masterpieces that are still to be equalled were produced in Cinemascope with stereo sound. The DVD explores how the post-war years were alive with bold experimentation in musical film. Later in the decade, rock and roll became the musical choice of the younger generation and movie musicals followed suit. Highlights include clips from films based on Broadway musicals including The King and I, Oklahoma, Carousel,South Pacific and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Favourites from the previous decade continue to delight audiences and films starring Betty Grable, Ester Williams and Judy Garland making a comeback in A Star Is Born.
