I L<3VE Musicals!

Musicals are my favourite film genre. It is the only genre which really took off with the birth of sound, and it has been a constant throughout cinema history.
My list does not discriminate between types of musical film. If it has songs which are essential to the film or the plot, you will find it here.
This includes:
- The traditional ‘movie musical’ feature, written directly for the screen or adapted from the stage;
- The musical performed “live” and captured on film for posterity;
- The television musical;
- The “singing cowboy” genre;
- The musical comedy genre;
- The horror comedy genre;
- The pastiche, parody or spoof;
- The teen exploitation movie;
- The animated musical,…
