    i love singing oompa lumpa dumpety doo you get it mark.
    it has great music to sing along too.


    there are films that are not really musicals but have nice songs that i love singing to and listening to over and over.

      i hate musicals i just dont get people suddenly bursting into song and dance at the drop of a hat if you did that in the middle of the high street you`d be locked up not have 45 other people all joining in

      the worst ones are the films about composers theres all ways a scene where you see the main character at their piano playing a brand new piece for the first time suddenly an orchestral backing track bursts out from nowhere and everyone in the neighbour hood sings along if he didnt even know the completed song 5 minutes ago how does the entire street know it...........give me a film about aliens any day far more believable..

              As a fan of the silent era and early talkies most of my favorite musicals are probably off most people's radar Off the top of my head some of my favorites are:

              Cocoanuts (1929) -- The Marx Bros. first film
              Elstree Calling (1930) -- The very first British movie musical. Some of the segments were directed by a young Alfred Hitchcock. It also featured Cecily Courtneidge of "On The Buses" fame
              Thoroughly Modern Millie (1969)
              The Boyfriend (1971)
              Pennies From Heaven (1981)
              Chicago (2002)

                  Mary poppins - especially as 'lets go fly a kite' is being used on an advert
                  Half a Sixpence - not really a children's musical but one of the first I remember watching and enjoying.
