Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. I saw this one when I was really little. I do remember that what's-his-name from "White Christmas" was in it. He tried to start a business, or something... and everybody was chasing after the blonde girl who worked there. And...wait a second... yeah, the song "White Christmas" actually came from here.
2. I just saw the 1998 remake of this musical. It was done by the same people who wrote the music for "South Pacific" and "Oklahoma!" and all that. I liked the Disney cartoon better, but this one wasn't bad. "The Stepsisters' Lament" is pretty funny.
3. This movie is a classic! The wicked witch used to scare me when she showed up in the middle of that song that the little short people were singing. And I always wanted those red shoes that Dorothy had.
4. This is totally a sixties movie. There were a bunch of people who had really goofy clothes, one had a HUGE afro! And the main character was dressed as a clown. I remember it had pretty music, though. I think it was the same guy who wrote the music for "Children of Eden".
5. I saw this movie a long, long time ago, but a guy and a girl got married and then the guy left. It also had that one song that my mom used to sing all the time... "Fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly..." It had a very sad ending.
6. My mom rented this about five years ago. It was written by the same people who wrote "Camelot" and "My Fair Lady". I expected to enjoy it, but I didn't really. Most of the songs were really slow. But the guy from "Singin' in the Rain" was in it, and there was some really cool dancing.
7. I heard the song "Another Op'nin, Another Show" from this musical on showtunes radio, and liked it. I rented the movie to see if it was any good, but first of all, that song was cut out of it! Secondly, it was just silly. At one point they lead into a song by saying something along the lines of, "Oh, do you remember that song that we sang in that opera a long time ago?" And then they sing and dance around in the dressing rooms.
8. My dad loved the music for this movie, so we finally rented it. I liked it a lot. There was a song sung on a rooftop, and another one sung on a fire escape, This movie was supposed to be a modern version of one of Shakespeare's plays. It was set in New York.
9. This movie is about a Jewish village, and some guy with a bunch of daughters. The main guy is always singing, always talking to God.
10. This movie is based on a comic strip, and there was a great song in it about rotten little kids.
11. This movie is all about America first breaking away from England, and had this really beautiful sad song, sung about dying soldiers which was sung by a page boy.
12. This movie told the story of someone who went on a long journey away from his home and fell in love with this ballet dancer. It was based on the story of a real person... an author.
13. This movie is about an orphan boy. And I finally found out where my dad got the song that goes, "You gotta pick a pocket or two, boys, you gotta pick a pocket or two" - it came from this movie! This movie was based on a Charles Dickens book.
14. This movie started off with this guy in brown wandering around town looking for a wife. He found her in a bar and walked up to her and asked her to marry him and go live in the mountains, and she said okay, but then she found out that he had a huge family she had to take care of too.
15. When I saw that this movie musical had Barbra Streisand and Michael Crawford in it (my two musical idols) I snapped it up from the shelf. I didn't like the movie much, but I did like the play it was based on - "The Matchmaker" by Thornton Wilder.
