That's Entertainment! (23-May-1974)

Director: Jack Haley, Jr.

Writer: Jack Haley, Jr.

Keywords: Documentary, Hollywood

Broad compilation featuring clips from MGM musicals over the years, celebrating the studio's 50th anniversary. Narrating from the MGM backlot are such luminaries as Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, and Fred Astaire. This is the clipshow to end all clipshows. Nestled among the delights are Esther Williams water acts and the tap-dancing Nicholas Brothers. "You can wait around and hope, but you'll never see the like of this again." Followed by two sequels, equally excellent.
