Sing Out, Sister: Broadway Musicals Through a Hollywood Lens- The Unsinkable Molly Brown, 1964
Filmmakers have always turned to Broadway for inspiration and story ideas. And producing song and dance numbers for film is as old as sound recording on film itself – beginning with the movie The Jazz Singer in 1927. Fresh City Life takes a fresh look at four classic films – all stage hits interpreted by Hollywood for mass film audiences.
Directed by Charles Walters. Starring Debbie Reynolds, Harve Presnell. Colorado’s first daughter, Margaret Brown, is given the Broadway treatment in this lavish musical. Debbie Reynolds stars in the film that changed ‘Margaret’ from ‘Molly’ and reminded filmgoers that even if the ship is going down, you can sing your troubles away. 128 minutes. Not rated.
