Ziegfeld Follies on DVD


Words and Music on DVD
Release Date: April 25, 2006

 

Judy raps! Yes, that's right. Judy raps - and raps well. Pre-dating rap by several decades, Judy raps in a portion of her satire "Madame Crematon" (aka "Madame Crematante"; "The Great Lady Has An Interview") . This is one of the few MGM Musicals to have the entire soundtrack survive in multiple "stems" (microphones placed strategically around the sound stage), making the enjoyment of the film a feast for the eyes AND the ears in true stereo.

New featurette Ziegfeld Follies: An Embarrassment of Riches
Vintage MGM Crime Does Not Pay short The Luckiest Guy in the World
2 classic MGM cartoons:
