The hills are alive ... with the sound of movie musicals! From old-school favorites such as "Singin' in the Rain" and "West Side Story" to modern classics like "Chicago" and "High School Musical," there's no shortage of toe-tapping flicks to enjoy when you're in the mood for some cinematic song and dance.
It all started with a 1927 film called "The Jazz Singer," which was the first full-length motion picture set to music. By the time the 1930s rolled around, big-screen musicals were a dime a dozen. In 1939, a little film called "The Wizard of Oz" was released, catapulting a 16-year-old named Judy Garland into superstardom and cementing her legacy as a movie musical queen.
The genre has only continued to grow since that time, spawning classic after classic and winning an avalanche of Oscars along the way. Julie Andrews ruled the '60s with hits like "Mary Poppins" and "The Sound of Music," while the end of that decade and the '70s benefited from the innovative choreography of Bob Fosse — "Sweet Charity" and "Cabaret." And while Disney trumped the genre with animated films in the '90s, the '00s and '10s saw the return of live-action movie musicals with hits such as "Mamma Mia!" and "La La Land."
