Singin in The Rain
This is incredibly obvious and for good reason. This 1952 musical is widely recognized to one of the greatest of all timed it’s tough to contest it. With a mind-blowing main cast like Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Conner and supporting and featured rolls filled by Jean Hagen, Douglas Fowley, Rita Moreno and this musical codified the genre of the musical comedy for generations. Stand out songs for me are “Moses”, Good Morning, You Are My Lucky Star and of course Singin in the Rain. It’d also recommend keeping an eye on the style, in fact I’m pretty sure this movie has to be included in my Menswear at the Movies series. If you haven’t see that, here is a link and it’ll be down in the description.

2) Cabin in the Sky (1943)
This is a must see film not just because the music is legendary featuring performances by greats like Louis Armstong and Duke Ellington but he epic cast of Ethel Waters, Eddie “Rochester” Anderson, Lena Horne and John W. Bubbles brings the story to life. Cabin is the Sky is the first movie musical featuring an all black cast and the second being Stormy Weather which debuted three months later in July of 1943. This film is a snapshot of the artist prowess of African Americans at that time. And for my allies this really is a must see.

3) Roberta
Of course I was going to mention a Fred and Ginger film and though they are all great, in my opinion Roberta is one of the stand outs. Picture this a former football player played by Randolph Scott and his friend an American Jazz bandleader played by Fred Astaire heads to France where musical hijinks ensue resulting in a salon style mid 1930s fashion show. No brainier. The dancing and music is incredible and the menswear, oh the menswear. I think this going on the Menswear at the movie list as well. It’s a must watch film and when you check it out, keep an eye out for Candy Candido, he’s a true talent and his voice appears in many iconic film of the era.

4) Newsies
Oh What’s that sound? Well it means it time for our modern mix up where we slot in a more modern movies musical that is equally as iconic as some of the old classics. For our modern mix up today, I’ve picked the 1992 Disney classic musical Newsies! Set on the backdrop of the New York Newsboys strike of 1899 Newsies stars Bill Pullman, David Moscow Robert Duvall and a very young Christian Bale in the leading role. Along with classic movie icon Ann-Margret the cast is rounded out by a host of 90’s era actors who you will undoubtedly recognize like Max Cassella. With twelve original songs by the late genius Alan Menken, and magnificent choreography by Peggy Holmes, Newsies is literally a must see and get the magical nerdery seal of approval

5) Ziegfeld Follies
The final film on my list is The Ziegfeld Follies which features the most epic cast of classic vaudeville and film stars ever. You know that trend of massive cast films like Valentine’s Day or New Year Eve? It’s not like that at all, it’s infinitely better. The cast includes Fred Astaire, Judy Garland, Red Skelton, Esther Williams, Gene Kelly, Lucille Ball, Lena Horne, Fanny Brice and any more. It’s vintage inspiration overload. I mean look at this! I highly recommend it!
