Film musicals are exceptionally diverse. A broad variety of forms and motifs makes them virtually indefinable from a general point of view. Using choreography as a major key to our selection, we would like to usher you to the world of dance and music step by step, guiding you through the film musical production of its native country – the United States. How did it develop, who were the major representatives and how did the dance scenes co-ordinate with the camera? We will seek the answers with the help of the most competent ones: Busby Berkeley, Hermes Pan, Fred Astaire, Michael Kidd or Gene Kelly.
