Movie Musicals Mixture Trivia Questions

1. The first full-feature length movie with recorded speech and songs, can arguably be considered the first musical movie. The title was "The Jazz Singer" (1927), but who played the title role?

From Quiz
The Winds Stretch Their Legs at Musical Movies

Answer: Al Jolson

"The Jazz Singer" had its theatrical release in February 1928, but most of the studio collaborators had the chance to see a premiere on October 6th, 1927. That's why the year between brackets precedes the year of the actual theatrical release. Al Jolson plays the title role: a musician from a traditional Jewish family, who disappoints his father by pursuing a jazz career instead of taking upon him the task of the main cantor at the local synagogue. One of the lines spoken by Al Jolson is the famous "Wait a minute, wait a minute. You ain't heard nothing yet". According to reliable sources, Al Jolson improvised this line just after the opening credits. Before "The Jazz Singer", Al Jolson (1886-1950) had only one role in a short movie, but he did gain fame before 1927 in several stage productions. Later on, he would star in musicals such as "The Singing Fool" (1928) and "Swanee River " (1939). The red herrings in this question all collaborated on "The Jazz Singer": Darryl F. Zanuck was the director, Louis Silvers conducted the orchestra and Harold McCord edited the movie.

2. Which 80's movie combines: "Rawhide", John Belushi, and a Mission From God?

From Quiz Greatest Music Movies Of All-Time

Answer: The Blues Brothers

The Blues Brothers started off as a "Saturday Night Live" skit and turned into one of the greatest comedies of the 1980s. Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi starred as Elwood and Jake Blues, two criminals who broke out of jail to earn money to save the orphanage they grew up in. They described their quest as a "mission from God". Along the way, they impersonated the Good Ol' Boys and performed "Rawhide" at a Country-western Bar.

3. "If I Were a Rich Man" I'd go to a "Matchmaker" to find husbands for my daughters. "Sunrise, Sunset" I'd say a "Sabbath Prayer" if I succeeded. Name the film.

From Quiz Singin' in the Movies

Answer: Fiddler on the Roof

The story of a poor but hard-working Russian Jew trying to raise five strong-minded daughters at the beginning of the Russian Revolution, and at the time of the Jewish pogroms. Chaim Topol won a Golden Globe for Best Actor, playing Tevye in this 1971 film.

4. Which ground-breaking 1933 musical, set on Broadway, featured the songs "Shuffle Off to Buffalo", "Young and Healthy" and "It Must Be June"?

From Quiz Match the Songs to the Films

Answer: 42nd Street

"42nd Street" was directed by Lloyd Bacon, with the musical numbers choreographed and directed by Busby Berkeley, whose innovative work in this field revolutionized the look of musical films. The film starred Warner Baxter, Bebe Daniels, Dick Powell, Ruby Keeler and Ginger Rogers. The basic plot - young chorus girl takes over from injured leading lady and becomes a star - has been used so many times that it's become a cliché. However, when this film was made, it was fresh and new, and audiences at the time loved it.

5. Why do we thank heaven for little girls?

From Quiz Lerner and Loewe Musicals

Answer: They grow up in the most delightful way

"Thank Heaven for Little Girls" was sung by Maurice Chevalier in the movie "Gigi." The song opens and closes the story, which tells of the relationship between Gaston, a wealthy and bored young man, and Gigi, a girl who is being raised by her grandmother to be a courtesan. Of course, Gaston falls in love with Gigi and they marry. As the lyrics say, we thank heaven for girls like Gigi because "without them, what would little boys do?" "Everywhere I turn I can see them" is a line from the song "Little Girls," which Miss Hannigan sings in "Annie." Of course, she doesn't love little girls at all. "They don't ask me questions..." is a line from an Oingo Boingo song.

6. "The London Echo": "Cockney flowergirl mistaken for royalty at grand ball, after intensive speech lessons". Which musical is this fictional newspaper headline describing?

From Quiz Headlining Movie Musicals

Answer: My Fair Lady

Based on George Bernard Shaw's 1930s play "Pygmalion", in which a Cockney lass was taught to speak and act like a lady by a lonely professor, "My Fair Lady" originated as a theatre production starring Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews. Rex Harrison reprised his role as Professor Henry Higgins in the 1964 movie, though with Audrey Hepburn playing the main role of Cockney flowergirl Eliza Doolittle. Despite Audrey Hepburn's sufficient singing abilities, her singing was dubbed in the movie by seasoned singer Marni Nixon in order to raise the pitch.

7. 'Mary Poppins' won a heap of Oscars at the 1966 ceremony, including one for Best Song. In my opinion, several of the songs would qualify, but which one got the nod from the Academy?

From Quiz These Are a Few of My Favourite Musicals

Answer: Chim Chim Cher-ee

'Chim Chim Cher-ee' is sung by Bert, the chimney sweep, played by Dick van Dyke, extolling the joys of clambering about in chimneys. 'Feed the Birds' is a lovely little song, and my personal favourite. 'Let's Go Fly a Kite', 'Step in Time' and 'Jolly Holiday' are all fun tunes, too. Julie Andrews won Best Actress for her performance, and deservedly so!

8. In this musical about a little girl who ends up in a strange place after a twister, we hear Dorothy say to her dog, "I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore, Toto." What movie is this?

From Quiz What Musical Is It?

Answer: The Wizard of Oz

"The Wizard of Oz" was made in 1939 and starred Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale. "The Wizard of Oz" was based on the book by L. Frank Baum. Dorothy makes this statement when she first ends up in Oz and everything looks bright and colorful as opposed to the grayness of Kansas.

10. The 1927 version of "The Jazz Singer" starred Al Jolson. Who starred in the 1980 remake?

From Quiz Strike Up The Band

Answer: Neil Diamond

The 1927 version of "The Jazz Singer" is generally accepted to be the first talking movie and the first American musical film. Al Jolson performed six songs in it. There have been several remakes. In 1952 there was a version with Danny Thomas and Peggy Lee, and in 1959 there was a made for television version with Jerry Lewis. The Neil Diamond version of 1980 was not very successful as a movie, but the soundtrack album achieved multi platinum sales. "America", "Love on the Rocks" and "Hello Again" were all released as singles from the album. Neil Diamond is better known as a singer/songwriter than actor. He started as a songwriter in the famous Brill Building where he composed several songs that were hits for other people, among them "I'm a Believer" for The Monkees. His early concerts as a singer saw him as an opening act for people such as Herman's Hermits and The Who. Solo success came in the 1970s with "Sweet Caroline" and "Cracklin Rosie", and he has remained popular ever since.

And all that Jazz I'm gonna rouge my knees And roll my stockings down And all that jazz Start the car I know a whoopee spot Where the gin is cold But the piano's hot It's just a noisy hall Where there's a nightly brawl And all That Jazz."

12. This great song and dance number can be found in the 2002 musical "Chicago" starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renee Zellwegger and Richard Gere. The other three songs listed are from other movies. Can you name the "Chicago" song?

From Quiz Eggheads Musical Melodies

Answer: Razzle Dazzle

The music and lyrics to "Chicago" were written by John Kander and Fred Ebb who also wrote songs for the 1966 stage musical, "Cabaret". The film satirises all the seamier sides of life in the jazz age in Chicago in the 1920s era. It's replete with brilliant song and dance numbers, including a magnificent display of tap-dancing by Richard Gere, who plays a shady lawyer. He learned how to tap in three months for this role and you'd swear he'd been doing it all his life. None of the characters in the film are particularly likable as they're all either criminals or people on the take, but they're all, to the last, eminently watchable. One of the best musicals to be made in recent years, this film won six Academy Awards, every one thoroughly deserved. (Question and additional information provided by Creedy)

29. Music and dancing in movies always remind the Winds of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Which of their movies included the number "Dancing Cheek to Cheek"? All of the soundtrack was composed by Irving Berlin.

From Quiz The Winds Stretch Their Legs at Musical Movies

Answer: Top Hat (1935)

"Flying Down to Rio", the first movie with Fred and Ginger (albeit in supporting roles), was based upon a soundtrack by Vincent Youmans, best known for the movies "No No Nanette" (1930 and 1940). "The Gay Divorcee" had a soundtrack by various composers. Cole Porter wrote "Night and Day", and Con Conrad was responsible for "The Continental", which were the two best known numbers from that 1934 movie, which also featured an uncredited performance in a dance number by a young Betty Grable. "Top Hat" and "Shall We Dance" are probably the two best known movies starring Fred and Ginger. Irving Berlin wrote the music and the lyrics to the songs featured in "Top Hat", including "Dancing Cheek to Cheek". George and Ira Gershwin came up with the entire soundtrack (music and lyrics) for "Shall We Dance". "Top Hat" tells the story of an American dancer named Jerry Travers (Fred Astaire) visiting London. When he rehearses his new dance steps in his hotel room, he accidentally wakes a model named Dale Tremont (Ginger Rogers) in her room below. She storms in to complain, but falls in love at first sight.
