FIDDLER ON THE ROOF: Ukrainian milkman Tevye clings desperately to the old Jewish traditions while all around him the world changes, day by day. His three daughters marry men he considers more and more unacceptable, and the ruling Russian government`s anti-Semitism threatens to drive him from his home. GUYS & DOLLS: Based on the Broadway show adapted from the short stories of Damon Runyon, and filled to the brim with Frank Loesser tunes such as “Luck Be a Lady” and “Sit Down, You`re Rocking the Boat,” this outrageously comic film, which features Marlon Brando`s bold musical debut, is a colorful tale about gamblers, a feisty Salvation Army lass, and a dance-hall girl with a pining heart. Veteran gambler Sky Masterson (Brando) takes a bet from Nathan Detroit (Frank Sinatra) that he can win the affection of a “soldier” (Jean Simmons) in the Salvation Army, setting himself up to lose both his money and his heart.  GUYS AND DOLLS consistently ranks among the most popular film musicals of all time.WEST SIDE STORY: Considered one of the greatest musicals of all time, WEST SIDE STORY earned director Robert Wise an Oscar for Best Director as well as nine other Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

MY FAIR LADY MY FAIR LADY (1964)
At one time the longest-running Broadway musical, My Fair Lady was adapted by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe from the George Bernard Shaw comedy Pygmalion. Outside Covent Garden on a rainy evening in 1912, dishevelled cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn) meets linguistic expert Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison). After delivering a musical tirade against verbal class distinction, Higgins tells his companion Colonel Pickering (Wilfred Hyde-White) that, within six months, he could transform Eliza into a proper lady, simply by teaching her proper English. The next morning, face and hands freshly scrubbed, Eliza presents herself on Higgins’ doorstep, offering to pay him to teach her to be a lady. It’s almost irresistable, clucks Higgins. She’s so deliciously low. So horribly dirty. He turns his mission into a sporting proposition, making a bet with Pickering that he can accomplish his six-month miracle to turn Eliza into a lady. This is one of the all-time great movie musicals, featuring classic songs and the legendary performances of Harrison. The movie won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor for Harrison, and five other Oscars, and it remains one of the all-time best movie musicals. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide $19.95 $17.96 at The Video Collection
