AFI’s Top 25 Movie Musicals of All Time

 The American Film Institute released the top 25 movie musicals of all time today. The only one I disagree with is Moulin Rouge! It was a movie mishmash of stolen songs from great musicals. It probably is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Three of my all time favorites did make the list. Of course, the three movies also star the great Judy Garland! They are The Wizard of Oz, A Star is Born, and Meet Me in St. Louis. I am so glad that A Star is Born got recognition. Judy Garland was robbed when she didn’t get her Academy Award for her outstanding performance in this amazing picture.
