Words And Music DVD

Mickey Rooney and Tom Drake play real-life songwriting geniuses Lorenz Hart and Richard Rogers in "Words and Music" (1948), a star-studded biopic. Having written some of the most beloved standards in the American songbook for Broadway shows like "Babes in Arms" and "Pal Joey," the dynamic duo certainly deserve their due, and they get it from the likes of Judy Garland, Lena Horne, Gene Kelly and Vera-Ellen, in 22 major numbers including "Johnny One Note," "Where or When" and "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue." This film is a fitting tribute that should be required viewing for musical lovers everywhere.

      Comments about this product:

      Rodgers and Hart music is outstanding wit old favorites. Drake okay as Rodgers, Rooney is miscast.
      Songs sung by some big names of the period. Como and Garland etc. I'll take Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island too every time I hear Rodgers music and Hart's lyrics.

        The characters were a little glossed over; as things were done that way back then. People didn't want their "idols" tarnished.But the music was wonderful and the story kept you interested.

          Movie was part of a larger purchase of movies to reminisce with in the old folks home. It exceeded expectations. Hart not unlike W.S. Gilbert in use of words.
