Even those who don't love musicals cannot help resist the charm of Gene Kelly splashing about whilst belting out "Singin' in the Rain"! Cinematic perfection.

The Sound of Music (1965)

One of the most famous movies ever made. Some interior scenes were filmed in Los Angeles, whilst parts of Austria and Bavaria (Germany) stood in for exterior filming.

West Side Story (1961)

The Jets and the Sharks "rumble" by singing and dancing to "America" and "Tonight Quintet." Who can forget Tony crooning "Maria"?

Cabaret (1972)

Although widely known as a good pal of Michael Jackson, Liza Minnelli won an Oscar, a Golden Globe, an Emmy, several Tonys and she has a Special Grammy Award!
