BFI's 100 Film Musicals

"From the coming of sound to the 1960s, the musical was central to Hollywood production. Exhibiting the remarkable resources of the Hollywood studios, musicals came to epitomise the very idea of 'light entertainment'. Films Singin' in the Rain and Oklahoma!, West Side Story and The Sound of Music were hugely popular, yet were commonly regarded as trivial & escapist. It was the 1970s before serious study of the Hollywood musical began to change critical attitudes & foster an interest in musical films produced in other cultures. Hollywood musicals have become less common, but both the academic interest in & fond nostalgia for the musical shows no signs of abating. These films provide a stimulating overview of the genre's development, its major themes & the critical debates it has provoked. This list includes films from countries that often tried to emulate the Hollywood style; films such as Moulin Rouge! & High School Musical demonstrate that the genre is still very much alive."
