MUSICALS/MUSIC MAKERS/DANCE

Ranked in order of enjoyment.

















FAVORITE 100 MOVIE MUSICALS
Features, shorts and toons featuring characters that break into song, regardless of setting. Sometimes even song & dance routines. Of the many I've seen, these are the musical titles I've returned to the most that continue to entertain me. I do still have many blindspots (off the top of my head: GYPSY and BYE BYE BIRDIE) so please leave me rental recommendations.

Films about performing musicians who only sing while writing, recording or on-stage have been pushed into a different category below. Same thing goes for movies centered around dance but have no singing parts. (all music videos have been omitted to make room. Mostly due to this earlier post)
