Can we start posting personal favorites that are really little-known gems? Here are two of mine.
If anyone belongs to Netflix I can recommend two Maurice Chevaliar musicals from the early 30s. The Smiling Lieutenant and Love Me Tonight. Both have great music and really appealing storylines. Love Me Tonight has the song "Isn't It Romantic" which is sung in a very clever way by more than 20 people. Both these movies have been shown on Turner Classic Movies (thank heaven for TCM!) and may be shown again.
Love Me or Leave Me (1955) = Doris Day and Jimmy Cagney. Great Film. Most people I meet have never heard of it.
Born to Dance (1936) = Jimmy Stewart and Eleanor Powell. Not many people know that Jimmy Stewart made a musical!
Tea for Two(1950) Doris Day/Gordon McRae [based on play No, No Nanette) Song Tea for Two and I Only Have Eyes for You are great numbers.
Puttin on the Ritz (1930) Joan Bennett
State Fair (1945) Dana Andrews, Jeanne Crain = Wonderful song and the pig Blueboy is a hoot.
