Fred Astaire, Judy Garland, Kathryn Grayson, Lena Horne, Red Skelton, Fanny Brice, William Powell

This is a fantastic two album set, nicely packaged by Curtain Call in their "Silver Screen Star Series" of "MGM's Ziegfield Follies of 1946", which featured just about everybody in the MGM stable of actors.. It was a real extravaganza consisting of a great mixture - or maybe I should say, it was a crazy mix-up of comic sketches, love songs and dance. Some of it is pretty silly, such as Red Skelton's drunken "When Television Comes"; and some of it is sweet such as Lena Horne's "Love" and Kathryn Grayson's "Beauty" .

That's a great pin-up picture of Lucille Ball on the cover, but she was not included in any of the excepts from the movie. Lucille isn't heard on the album, but her buddy William Frawley is (in a skit with Fanny Brice). All in all its a great nostalgic trip into Hollywood's past.

TRACKS:

- MAIN TITLE - BRING ON THE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS ... Fred Astaire, Virginia O'Brien, with William Powell as The Great Ziegfield.

- THIS HEART OF MINE - Orchestral (an Esther Williams sequence)

- PAY THE TWO DOLLARS - Very funny comic skit with the inimitable Victor Moore and Edward Arnold.

- LIBIAMO, LIBIAMO FROM "LA TRAVIATA" .... JJames Melton and Marion bell sing

- THIS HEART OF MINE .... Fred Astaire

- SWEEPSTAKE TICKET ... Fanny Brice, Hume Cronyn, and William Frawley in it for chuckles ... Brice is a scream!

LOVE ... sung by lovely Lena Horne

- WHEN TELEVISION COMES ... Red Skelton jush barey gesh hish way tru dish!

- LIMEHOUSE BLUES ... Fred Astaire is in Chinatown and he's singing again

- A GREAT LADY GIVES AN INTERVIEW ... Judy Garland is hysterical as she tells the story of the poor girl who invented the safety pin ... Listen for the amazing similarity to Blondie's Rapture ("Man from Mars, Eatin' Cars") ... how many years prior to Blondie was this?

- THE BABBITT AND THE BROMIDE .... Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly ... always a good romp and a great song ... well ... a bromidic song - ha ha

- BEAUTY - the beautiful Kathryn Grayson sings about beauty.
