Ziegfeld Follies was a movie fraught with so many delays,shooting schedule work arounds,cancellations,scene deletions,etc.,that this picture is one of very few to finally be released so long after its' original production had stopped.A few pre-release screenings were done in 1944 and 1945 but the film got such a tepid response it was returned to have more work done on it.The studio got the jitters and finally shelved it.
Fred Astaire personally wrote the production chief Arthur Freed wondering when the film would be released;he was very anxious to say the least.He told him it was the first time he had made a film that would be seemingly released so long a time afterwards or at all.Freed assured Fred that Ziegfeld Follies would be released in 1946 and not to worry.The film was copyrighted in 1946 but wasn't released nationwide until January 11,1948!
One of the other reasons Astaire was worried was that he felt his routines might get dated.He needn't have worried for the routines Fred appears in(there are three;technically four if you count his brief opener)are the highlights of this film.In fact after William Powell opens the movie reprising his /36 role as the show master himself,Florence Ziegfeld,Fred Astaire opens the movies' first number(in his trademark top hat and white tails!)with "Bring on the Beautiful Girls".We find a very young Cyd Charisse here along with then screen veteran Lucille Ball.Next we have swim star Esther Williams doing the "Water Ballet" sequence; it is amazing how graceful and poised she could be underwater.Next we have vaudeville star Ed Wynn's son,Keenan,doing a funny turn with "Number Please".Next famous tenor James Melton and Marion Bell do a fine number pulled from the opera La Traviata.

Wow! What a wonderful potpourri of prime M-G-M talent, 1946 style! There are so many memorable bits in this fantastic extravaganza that it's just GOTTA have something to please most everyone who loves vintage musical entertainment. Filmed in magnificent old Technicolor, here's a treasure trove to behold with performances from some of yesteryears greatest stars: from Lucille Ball & Judy Garland to Fred Astaire & Gene Kelly. This film brought the studio over $5 million in profits and rather than give out plot details, I'll give you samples of just why: Florenz Ziegfeld is portrayed in Heaven by William Powell - The LIMEHOUSE BLUES number with Lucille Bremer and Fred Astaire - THE INTERVIEW by Judy Garland (originally intended for and offered to Greer Garson (!) - A glamourous red-head named Lucille Ball in the MEET THE LADIES number - Red Skelton doing his very funny WHEN TELEVISION COMES - LOVE as done by exquisite torch singer Lena Horne - THE DRINKING SONG from Verdi's opera LA TRAVIATA (performed by James Melton and Marion Bell). These aren't but half of what the viewer can expect upon watching this wonderful video - Enjoy!

Produit conforme a l'annonce. Film a sketches de numéros musicaux pas aussi intéressant les une que les autres mais il demeure tout de même un classique. Le smeilleurs moments : le duo de Fred Astaire avec gene Kelly et le grand numéro de l'inoubliable Judy Garland.

I highly recommed this musical. It has so many song
and dance numbers in it. The costumes are really
great to. Their are many musical stars in it such as
Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire, Lucille Bremer, Judy
Garland, and any more.I'd give this movie ten stars if I
could. They defintly don't make them like this anymore.

"Ziegfled Follies", produced to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Hollywood's greatest dream factory, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, certainly lives up to the MGM Motto: "Do It Big, Do It Right, and Give It Class". Although the comedy sketches leave something to be desired, the musical sequences are fabulous! "Ziegfeld Follies" features an elegant Lucille Ball cracking a whip (!) in the colorful "Bring on the Beautiful Girls" opening production number, the wonderful Esther Williams performing a stunning water ballet, the two breathtaking Fred Astaire-Lucille Bremer dance spectaculars: "This Heart of Mine" and "Limehouse Blues", the muli-talented Gene Kelly & Fred Astaire in "The Babbit and the Bromide", and the sensational finale, "There's Beauty Everywhere" with Kathryn Grayson, Cyd Charisse and lots and lots of bubbles! Wow! This film, directed by the keen-eyed Vincente Minnelli, took 2 years to complete and is one of the crowning achievements of the Arthur Freed Unit at MGM. The orchestrations, lighting, costumes, set design and art direction plus Minnelli's careful use of Technicolor all combine to showcase Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer at the pinnacle of what did best. This motion picture was also one of the first musicals recorded with multiple microphones, an early version of stereo. This video version has been digitally remastered to enhance the original recording. "Ziegfeld Follies" is a definite "must-have" for your video library. BUY IT!
