Words and Music

Dir. Norman Taurog

US 1948 | Colour | 121 mins | Drama | Hollywood Classics | Musical

Cast: Mickey Rooney, Tom Drake, Judy Garland, Lena Horne

In this biopic about the great songwriters Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart, plot is fortunately kept to the minimum, and the 19 musical numbers themselves are at the fore. Standouts include Garland and Rooney’s ‘I Wish I Were in Love Again’, Horne’s ‘The Lady is a Tramp’ and Gene Kelly and Vera-Ellen’s electrifying 8-minute ballet, ‘Slaughter on Tenth Avenue’.

Available on: 35mm
