MGM Musicals: The Arthur Freed Unit

Course number : AE114   
« back to classes page
In the late 1930s through the mid-1950s, MGM produced some of the best film musicals. The man most responsible was a producer, Arthur Freed, who created a production unit of directors, composers, lyricists, and choreographers to bring to life original musicals to the screen. With MGM stars such as Judy Garland, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, and other talented singers and dancers, Freed produced classics, “Meet Me in St. Louis,” “An American in Paris,” “Singin’ in the Rain,” and countless others. The course will study Freed’s production unit along with screening clips from many MGM movie musicals.
