MUSICAL MADNESS!

MUSICAL MADNESS!

Cinema Retro tips us to this great package!

Fox and MGM will release a special campaign to promote 50 classic Hollywood musicals spread across 61 DVDs. The mammoth boxed set will also include postcard reproductions of the one sheet posters for every title. The shelf-breaking collection will be available on November 11 -- it's enough to have you fiddling on the roof!

Here is the official press release:

Start spreading the news… as Fox and MGM Home Entertainment present 50 of the most legendary musical motion pictures of all time in the Hollywood Musicals Collection on DVD November 11. These lively and larger-than-life production numbers span the golden age of musical theater and include multiple award-winning films such as West Side Story, which took home 10 Academy Awards, All That Jazz, which earned four Oscars, Guys and Dolls, which was nominated for four Academy Awards, Moulin Rouge! which won two Oscars and Sound of Music and The King And I, which took home five Academy Awards each.

This quintessential set brings live theater to the living room with remarkable performances from Elvis Presley (Clambake, Flaming Star, Follow That Dream, Frankie and Johnny, Kid Galahad, Wild In the Country), Marilyn Monroe (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, There’s No Business Like Show Business) and Fred Astaire (Daddy Long Legs), among several other talented performers. Joining the melodic classics on DVD for the first time are the cherished Goldwyn Follies, Kid Millions and Whoopee!.


Also in the collection are special Anniversary Editions of fan favorites Carousel, New York, New York, Oklahoma!, Sound of Music, State Fair, The King and I and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. All 50 of the films in the Hollywood Musicals Collection are packaged together in a 61 disc marquee collectible set and includes 50 exclusive postcard reproductions of the original theatrical one-sheets for the suggested retail price of $499.98 U.S. / $590.98 Canada.
