Trivia

The idea for a third edition was pitched by MGM/UA Home Video head George Feltenstein to then MGM/UA president Alan Ladd Jr. Feltenstein had typed up a list of musical numbers for a potential third movie back in 1976 after returning home from That's Entertainment, Part II (1976). Ladd approved the pitch, but because Feltenstein was a studio exec, he didn't get a screen credit for his contribution. See more »

Quotes

June Allyson: It was all so glamorous. MGM liked to boast that it had more stars than there are in the heavens. I just felt lucky to be counted among them - when I was still just a kid.

Nice Features In Here That We Never Seen Before
25 August 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This last "Entertainment" installment offers a few different aspects that the first two "That's Entertainment!" packages didn't have, such as some song-dance routines that never made it on screen (and should have) or a behind-the-scenes look at cameramen filming a particular number. The latter is interesting to see as they filmed an Eleanor Powell dance ("Lady Be Good")

It also was interesting to see some of the stars in the early '90s when this was made, as they host certain segments of this 113-minute tribute. I am referring to June Allyson, Cyd Charisse, Lena Horne, Howard Keel, Gene Kelly, Ann Miller, Debbie Reynolds, Mickey Rooney and Esther Williams. I'd say the person who most looked a lot like they did when they were much younger was Horne.

I also appreciated the fact they showed quite a bit of numbers in the widescreen format, something we never saw viewing these great musicals on VHS. We also see a very early edition of "Singin In The Rain," with the likes of Jack Benny and Joan Crawford.

Overall, a worthy edition to the "That's Entertainment!" package.
