    3 Classic Musicals of the Silver Screen: Volume 2

      Alfred E. Green, Stanley Donen, Tommy Dorsey
      Fred Astaire, Sarah Churchill, Peter Lawford
    Triple-bill of classic Hollywood musicals. In 'Royal Wedding' (1951), Fred Astaire and Jane Powell star as Tom and Ellen Bowen, a brother and sister vaudeville team who take their act to London during the run-up to the wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Phillip Mountbatten. Of course, with the sound of wedding bells in the air, it's not long before Tom and Ellen find romance themselves: Tom meeting dancer Anne Ashmond (Sarah Churchill, daughter of Sir Winston) and Ellen falling for the aristocratic Lord John Brindale (Peter Lawford). Includes the duet 'How Could You Believe Me When I Said I Loved You When You Know I've Been a Liar All My Life?' and the famous routine where Astaire dances on the ceiling. 'The Fabulous Dorseys' (1947) is the life story of the two brothers (played by themselves) who attained fame and stardom together and went on to greater individual success following the break-up of their orchestra, before the death of their father reunited them once again. Finally, 'Black and Tan' (1929) is a musical short starring Duke Ellington as a jazz player who finds himself down on his luck.

One day, she sees her chance to escape and sets off on a journey which will take her to the door of childless millionaire Daddy Warbucks (Albert Finney). In 'Oliver' (1968) young Oliver Twist (Mark Lester) escapes from the workhouse, where he has been brutally treated all of his life, and joins the gang of street urchins led by the rascal Fagin (Ron Moody). Oliver is trained as a pick-pocket, but ends up being caught for a crime he did not commit. However, this seemingly unfortunate accident brings him closer to his real family. 'Matilda' (1996) stars Mara Wilson as the exceptionally gifted and intelligent child who is ignored by her stupid parents Harry (Danny DeVito) and Zinnia (Rhea Perlman). A keen reader, her dearest wish is to be sent to school, but the establishment Harry selects is Crunchemhall, run by the tyrannical Miss Trunchball (Pam Ferris). Her cruelty to her pupils causes Matilda to vow revenge, and her newly discovered telekinetic powers give her the chance to do so. 'Madeline' (1998) stars Hatty Jones as the most mischievous of the twelve friends who live at a Parisian school run by Miss Clavel (Frances McDormand). Her sunny existence is threatened by starchy old Lord Covington (Nigel Hawthorne) who is on a campaign to have the school closed down.
