John Landis on

The Band Wagon

Released 1953
Distributor MGM

Vincente Minnelli, Arthur Freed and Comden & Greene’s timeless classic is the musical for people who don’t like musicals: so clever, so witty and so brilliantly executed that the usual objections to musical numbers “stopping the story” don’t apply. The music is the story, a sophisticated backstage Broadway trifle steeped in artifice but fabulously entertaining. After all, “That’s Entertainment”!
