The marathons sound like a great way to keep the CinemaWorld Theater alive and functioning. I would love to attend, but Southern Oregon is too far away.

Here are some categories that I might suggest. The public still finds great entertainment in the set of B/W Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers films of the thirties. It is a sophisticated, if silly, set of films that feature outstanding dance numbers, all to original scores by the great composers: Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, and others.

Astaire’s pairing with Eleanor Powell in MGM’s “Broadway Melody of 1940”, with a score by Cole Porter is probably his best – even THE best example of that genre ever made, especially the “Begin The Beguine” ten minute long dance filmed in long unbroken sequences.

Another category would be “Those Wonderful MGM Musicals”, featuring some of the big technicolor productions that were so lavish and fabulous on the big screen, including Ziegfeld Follies, Brigadoon, The Bandwagon, Yolanda And The Thief, The Pirate, Singin' In The Rain, Kiss Me Kate, Rose Marie, Three Little Words, Pagan Love Song, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, I Love Melvin, Easter Parade, Les Girls, The Barkleys Of Broadway, Til The Clouds Roll By, Hit The Deck, Good News, Two Weeks With Love, The Great Caruso, Show Boat, Silk Stockings, Annie Get Your Gun, In The Good Old Summertime – and there are still more, all from that period of 40s, 50s, 60s, with Jumbo being the last of the biggies.

Other than the Mobster marathon, I don’t see any listing of upcoming ones.
