woaw! debbie Reynolds,janet Leigh,Gable,Turner…
but what are gary Cooper and marlene Dietrich doing here?!They spent all their career at Paramount;Cooper did only one picture for MGM: “Operator 13″(1934)
The same about claudette Colbert who was a star at Columbia.
Anyway,MGM produced one of the best musicals in technicolor ever made.
The technicolor at that time (1945-55) was gorgeous.
