“Dance and Sing Get Up and Do Your Thing” – AFI’s Top 5 Musicals

It seems every time someone asks the question “What’s your favorite? (fill in the blank) that’s what happens to me…BLANK.  So, I decided to prep for the next occasion.  Here’s the American Film Institute’s list of the Top 5 Musicals of All time!  West Side Story and Cabaret have already made the list on my Songbird Oscar Winners post.  I think I got this!

Can you name yours?  Let’s share.

# FILM YEAR STUDIO
1 SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN 1952 MGM

Singing in the rain poster

Lina:  [with a voice to peel paint]  And I cayn’t stand’im.    Holy crap! This line makes the movie for me!!

Bernardo:  ” I’d like to go back to San Juan.”

Anita:  “I know a boat you can get on!”

 

Ha!  You do you, cause I’m gonna do me!

 

 

Wizard of Oz

Cowardly Lion:  ” Alright  I’ll go in there for Dorothy. Wicked Witch or no Wicked Witch, guards or no guards, I’ll tear them apart. I may not come out alive, but I’m going in there. There’s only one thing I want you fellows to do.”

Tin WoodsmanScarecrow:  “What’s that?”

Cowardly Lion:  “Talk me out of it!”

 

Oh Lion – you just gotta love him!

 

 

 

Sound of Music

 

Maria:  “When the Lord closes a door, somewhere He opens a window.”

 

Without a doubt!  Amen!

Sally:  ” I’m going to be a great film star! That is, if booze and sex don’t get me first.”

 

Quote is dead on.  What’s up Ms Liza?
