That’s Entertainment! The Complete Collection


Includes That’s Entertainment, That’s Entertainment Part 2, That’s Entertainment III, and a bonus fourth disc entitled That’s Entertainment: Treasures from the Vault, available exclusively with the Giftset featuring more than five hours of exciting extras including three great documentaries, premiere night coverage and salutes to the great behind-the-camera talents, TV specials, making-of featurettes, plus an extensive video jukebox of rare, star-packed musical outtakes from classic films, and more!In an era when we have an unprecedented number of movies and other diversions at our fingertips, is there still a need for a clip show like That’s Entertainment? Certainly, because the film series, beginning in 1974, was an unabashed peddler of glorious nostalgia, not only collecting many of the most memorable moments in the magical history of the MGM musical–and therefore in the history of film–but bringing in many of the original stars to introduce them decades later. And another few decades after the series was released, the nostalgia is that much greater since many of those stars are now gone. In addition, the sheer number and variety of clips (though they’re often too short) would be hard to match in any collection or in the span of an evening’s viewing. Where else could you enjoy Gene Kelly singin’ in the rain and also James Stewart crooning “Easy to Love”? Or follow fun trends like the Mickey Rooney-Judy Garland “let’s put on a show” pictures, of which Rooney says “only our names seemed to change”? Following the surprising box-office success of the initial film, Part 2 was released in 1976 and it still had plenty of famous and obscure clips (remember Bobby Van?), and even a nod to the nonmusical films of the era such as the Hepburn-Tracy pictures. It topped everything off with the irresistible pairing of hosts Kelly and Fred Astaire, who share a dance–for only the second time in their careers–at the ages of 64 and 77, respectively (and a more graceful 77-year-old you never will see!). The third film wasn’t made until in 1994 (host Kelly is strikingly older), but it offered more of the usual fare plus a variety of cut numbers by such stars as Judy Garland, Lena Horne, and Debbie Reynolds. A half-century later, Hollywood’s valentine to the movie musical was still shining strong.

The DVD trilogy set offers all three films with the choice of widescreen anamorphic or full-screen formats (don’t worry, the clips are in their original aspect ratio). There’s also a two-sided fourth disc with supplemental material, most interestingly the “musical outtakes jukebox,” a 16-song, 49-minute collection of numbers that were cut from musicals of the era. None of the selections are Great Songs, but it’s hard to discount any musical number from the MGM vaults, for example, three selections by Garland and two by Horne (only one of which, Garland’s “Mr. Monotony,” appears in TE3, and there in a slightly shorter form). The rest of the content is behind-the-scenes documentaries, the most significant being “That’s Entertainment: The Masters Behind the Musical” (37 minutes, profiling the talent behind the films such as Arthur Freed and Michael Kidd), “That’s Entertainment III: Behind the Screen” (1994, 53 minutes), and vintage black-and-white footage of MGM’s 25th anniversary celebration (10 minutes). Not included in the set: the 1985 compilation That’s Dancing, which was released separately in 2007. –David Horiuchi

Singin’ in the Rain – That’s Entertainment!


Unforgettable collection of sequences from MGM’s greatest musicals. “Anchors Aweigh,” “Babes in Arms,” “Singin’ in the Rain,” “The Wizard of Oz,” and more. Astaire, Crosby, Kelly, Minnelli, Sinatra and Rooney host. That’s extravaganza, that’s dance, that’s song, that’s entertainment. 135 min. Standard and Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, French Dolby Surround stereo; Subtitles: English, Spanish, French; theatrical trailer. NOTE: This Title Is Out Of Print; Limit One Per Customer.This nostalgic history lesson in the treasures of MGM musicals touches upon the obvious highlights–An American in Paris, Singin’ in the Rain, many others–and includes clips of wonderful though more obscure performances by Esther Williams, Jimmy Durante, Eleanor Powell, and even Clark Gable singing and dancing. It’s a film lover’s box of candy and perfect for musical mavens, and getting a chance to see so many legends host the whole affair (many of whom have died since the film’s 1974 release) is as pleasing as the old footage. –Tom Keogh

If You Compare You Will See that LG Makes Good TV Sets


I am a big fan of the tv sets made by LG.

I looked for a 47-inch LED TV for some time, but still could not struggle through the purchase until last week.

Actually, I was already tending towards Samsung , but then looked at the TV in direct comparison with LG.

Primarily since the LG produces more natural picture, I had made my choice.

Amazon ImageBack home, I took out my notebook and looked at the features and prices in detail to compare. Price-performance ratio spoke next to the better image for the LG, so I ordered it in action including 3D, Bluray player etc.

A day later came the LG TV – I did not need a manual and I would estimate only average Tech freak would read them, and I was amazed! The quality of the image is sensational even without manual adjustments or changes! The functionality for the price is very very good. And the 3D picture “real” 3D with polarization effect like in the movies, and no annoying “shutter” which our brain only pretends 3D is really incredibly good.

Surf the Internet using the remote control is a little tedious, but a normal remote control is not really made ​​for it. I have the LG remote app I downloaded to my smartphone and so does the operation smoothly. The smartphone screen is used either as a small remote control or touch pad whereby one uses a mouse pointer on the screen.

Typing on the keyboard then operate the smartphone with virtually no delay over wifi.

Screenshots of television image and you can do immediately by MMS, mail, etc., etc.

Just try it, really great!

The browser itself is amazing fix.

Generally, there is a lot to discover on a new LG TV – a lot of pre-installed apps and 3D example movies, games for download if you like it and much more.

Get a 3D viewing experience for the whole family if you dare.

I am absolutely thrilled with buying a tv by LG and can highly recommend this high tech television company to anyone who wants to buy a tv!
