LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Hal Walker. Bob Hope, Dorothy Lamour, Bing Crosby, Murvyn Vye, Ralph Moody. Only color ROAD film has lush trappings, many guest stars and good laughs, as Bob and Bing save Dorothy from evil princess and jungle perils. Carolyn Jones has a bit.

A beautiful Queen meets with two improvised sailors in India. When a gorilla shows up things get pretty interesting. more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Leslie Kardos. Jane Powell, Farley Granger, Ann Miller, S. Z. Sakall, Billie Burke, Bobby Van, Robert Keith, Nat King Cole, Fay Wray. Bland MGM musical pairing playboy Granger and apple-pie Powell, who meet when he's thrown in jail by her father for speeding through town. Van's human pogo-stick number and Miller's "I've Gotta Hear That Beat," with Busby Berkeley's disembodied orchestra, are highlights.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: David Butler. Doris Day, Howard Keel, Allyn (Ann) McLerie, Philip Carey, Gale Robbins, Dick Wesson, Paul Harvey. Doris is irresistible as the bombastic, rootin'-tootin' title character in this lively musical, with Keel as Wild Bill Hickok, who only begins to realize his feelings for her when she makes a stab at becoming more ``feminine.'' Sammy FainPaul Francis Webster score includes the Oscar-winning ``Secret Love.'' Jane Alexander later played Calamity in a 1984 TV movie.

Western legends Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok fuss, feud and fall in love in this hit from the golden age of movie musicals. Includes the Academy Award-winning song "Secret... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: George Sidney. Kathryn Grayson, Howard Keel, Ann Miller, Bobby Van, Keenan Wynn, James Whitmore, Bob Fosse, Tommy Rall, Kurt Kasznar, Ron Randell. Bright filmization of Cole Porter's Broadway musical, adapted from Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. Grayson and Keel are erstwhile married couple whose off-stage and on-stage lives intertwine. Songs include "So in Love,'' "Always True to You in My Fashion,'' "Brush Up Your Shakespeare'' (delightfully performed by Wynn and Whitmore); the "From This Moment On'' number, highlighting Fosse and Carol Haney, is outstanding. Originally in 3-D.

When two squabbling ex-marrieds are cast as squabbling Renaissance romantics in a musical The Taming of the Shrew, life imitates art, art imitates life and it all proves no musical... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Charles Walters. Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Celeste Holm, John Lund, Louis Calhern, Louis Armstrong, Sidney Blackmer. Fluffy remake of THE PHILADELPHIA STORY is enjoyable, but has lost all the bite of the original. Kelly is about to marry Lund when ex-hubby Crosby arrives, along with reporters Sinatra and Holm. Cole Porter songs include "True Love,'' "Did You Evah?,'' "You're Sensational,'' plus Bing and Satchmo's "Now You Has Jazz.'' Grace Kelly's last acting role. VistaVision.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: George Sidney. Rita Hayworth, Frank Sinatra, Kim Novak, Barbara Nichols, Hank Henry, Bobby Sherwood. Sinatra is in peak form as a cocky nightclub singer who makes a move on every "dame'' he meets--including innocent showgirl Novak--but meets his Waterloo when wealthy, demanding Hayworth agrees to bankroll his dream of running his own club. Almost complete rewrite of the 1940 Broadway show based on John O'Hara's short stories, but entertaining just the same, with a great Rodgers and Hart score including "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered'' (with sanitized lyrics), "The Lady Is a Tramp.'' Look fast for Robert Reed.

Based on the hit Rodgers and Hart musical of the same name*PAL JOEY follows Joey Evans (Frank Sinatra*From Here to Eternity)*a charming nightclub singer who is very popular with the... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, Frank Sinatra, Vivian Blaine, Stubby Kaye, B. S. Pully, Veda Ann Borg, Sheldon Leonard, Regis Toomey. Lavish Hollywoodization of classic Broadway musical based on Damon Runyon's colorful characters with Blaine, Kaye, Pully, and Johnny Silver reprising their stage performances and Brando making a not-bad musical debut as gambler Sky Masterson. Tuneful Frank Loesser score includes "Fugue for Tinhorns,'' "If I Were a Bell,'' "Luck Be a Lady,'' Blaine's memorable "Adelaide's Lament,'' and Stubby's showstopping "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat.'' CinemaScope.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Stanley Donen. Howard Keel, Jane Powell, Jeff Richards, Russ Tamblyn, Tommy Rall, Virginia Gibson, Julie Newmeyer (Newmar), Ruta Kilmonis (Lee), Matt Mattox. Rollicking musical perfectly integrates song, dance, and story: Keel's decision to get himself a wife (Powell) inspires his rowdy brothers to follow suit. Tuneful Johnny Mercer Gene DePaul score (with Oscar-winning musical direction by Adolph Deutsch and Saul Chaplin), but it's Michael Kidd's energetic dance numbers that really stand out, with rare screen work by dancers Jacques D'Amboise and Marc Platt. The barn-raising sequence is an absolute knockout. Screenplay by Albert Hackett, Frances Goodrich, and Dorothy Kingsley, from a Stephen Vincent Benet story. Later a TV series and a Broadway musical. CinemaScope.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: George Cukor. Judy Garland, James Mason, Charles Bickford, Jack Carson, Tom Noonan. Powerful semi-musical remake of the 1937 classic, with Garland and Mason at their peaks as doomed Hollywood star couple, she on the way up, he down. Incisive script by Moss Hart; great Harold Arlen-Ira Gershwin songs include spellbinding "The Man That Got Away" and the show stopping "Born in a Trunk" sequence by Leonard Gershe. Badly cut to 154m. after premiere engagements of 181m.; restored in 1983 to present length using still photos to cover missing bits of footage. CinemaScope.

Judy Garland had no better showcase of her formidable singing and acting talent than as the title star of this moving, memorable classic directed by George Cukor. As a band singer... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Richard Thorpe. Elvis Presley, Judy Tyler, Vaughn Taylor, Dean Jones, Mickey Shaughnessy. Elvis learns to pick a guitar in the Big House, later becomes a surly rock star. Presley's best film captures the legend in all his nostril-flaring, pre-Army glory. Great Leiber-Stoller score, including "Treat Me Nice,'' "Don't Leave Me Now,'' and terrific title song. Also shown in computer-colored version. CinemaScope.

An inmate learns guitar from his cellmate, then gets an agent and turns rock 'n' roll star. more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Fred F. Sears. Bill Haley and His Comets, The Platters, Tony Martinez and His Band, Freddie Bell and His Bellboys, Alan Freed, Johnny Johnston. Premise is slim (unknown band brought to N.Y.C. where they become famous) but picture is now a time-capsule look at the emergence of rock 'n' roll. Bill Haley and the Comets perform "See You Later Alligator,'' "Razzle Dazzle,'' and the title song; the Platters chip in with "Only You'' and "The Great Pretender.'' Remade as TWIST AROUND THE CLOCK.

There are no titles in the genre scheduled.
