Musical Films Of 1957

Here’s another year of films, and in Musical Films Of 1957, you can see the list is getting smaller and only “Loving You” was geared for younger audience, while the rest is for the adult’s. It’s only proves that the musicals are on the way out and Hollywood is out of touch with the teenagers at the time. The teenagers don’t want to hear grownups singers, they want Rock’N’Roll and Elvis Presley, and Hollywood is too blind to see that the times are changing, and Rock’N’Roll is here to stay.

Hollywood, made money from Elvis Presley, but in 1957, Fred Astaire, wasn’t. It’s a shame that Hollywood would try to update the actors and singers at that time, but time moves forward and not back...

I’m excited to do Debby Boone Part Two, because I’ve been waiting for a long time to do it, for it was a long time for me to do.

Debby Boone On Stage Music Work

In musical theater, usually the challenge for me is that everything is too high. I am a true alto. There are not a lot of leading roles written for altos…I love musical theater and I love working in a company.There’s nothing quite like the energy of working with a full cast and an orchestra. (Citing Anna in The King & I as her favorite role:) That show…is so well constructed from beginning to end….There is something so incredibly beautiful in the arc of the character of Anna & how she evolved and what she learned. It’s such a beautiful story with such a beautiful message...
