"I must admit that I had never been "that" familiar with the work that Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney had done as actors but, I must say that I was totally missing something great and incredible to enjoy with their work. I have never been a "musical" movies fan but still, there's something about these movies that is interesting enough to make me watch them. Beyond acting (that was merely a important part of these movies) the performances and talent of these people were just great. Mickey Rooney had this energy and enthusiasm while he was making a scene (any scene) that you just get contagious by them. On the other hand, Judy Garland voice was so sweet and charming that you just want her to keep on doing her acts. Besides that, she was such a beautiful, young little girl in these movies. The musical parts of any movie you'll watch here have a variety of features that you might find amazing. When it's not about Garland/Rooney duets because of their talent (I personally recommend Rooneys number with the banjo on "Babes on broadway"... STUNNING!!!)... it's about the dancing numbers and the choreographies they made back then (and I couldn't imagine how difficult was for them to repeat a whole scene if one of the actors might screw it up... that was passion and love from an actor). And whe it wasn't about some pretty songs you might enjoy... it was the delight of the dresses and clothes they wore for each act.
I do agree with the comment someone else posted here when they reffered to these movies as nor being "academy awards drama" but still, just to watch the performances and the effort from all the actors to put up a show more than the movies themselves like these ones, it's just great. Now, I'm putting aside the other features of this set like the extra DVD, the book aobut the movies' notes and the pictures which I find extremely AWESOME. A bunch of little jewels to enjoy and to place them in a personal museum at home."
A real exclusive set
