Join host Nick Clooney as he takes you on a journey back to the golden age of Hollywood movie musicals. These five pictures represent some of the most iconic images ever recorded on film and harken back to a time when the musical was king. “The Wizard of Oz,” “Singin’ in the Rain,” “Yankee Doodle Dandy,” “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” and “Viva Las Vegas” spanned an era from the Great Depression to the Civil Rights movement – and elevated the likes of Judy Garland and Debbie Reynolds into stardom. These classic musicals also cemented the superstar status of other Hollywood legends like Gene Kelley, James Cagney, Elvis Presley and Ann-Margret. Enjoy this magical ride filled with laughter and inspiration that will have you singing for days.
