HOLLYWOOD SINGING AND DANCING: A MUSICAL HISTORY is the most entertaining and comprehensive series about the Hollywood musical ever produced. It is a celebration of song and dance, beginning with THE JAZZ SINGER and continuing through to CHICAGO – the fist musical to win the Academy Award for Best Picture in nearly 40 years – to DREAMGIRLS and beyond. The finest films from every studio and every decade are included, as well as the most important and influential stars.

New and exclusive interviews with LIZA MINNELLI, SHIRLEY MACLAINE, MICHEY ROONEY, RITA MORENO, DEBBIE REYNOLDS, LESLIE CARON, as well as such directors as BIL CONDON (Dreamgirls) and ROB MARSHALL (Chicago) among many, many others add insight and revealing behind-the-scenes commentary about these cinematic masterpieces.
Rarely seen footage and vintage interviews with such legendary luminaries as FRES ASTAIRE, GENE KELLY, BUSBY BERKLEY and VINCENTE MINNELLI help us understand the creative proves that made their films into works of art.
