Book Description

TODAY IN HISTORY: MUSICALS is a day-by-day account of the shows, the stars, and the gossip that shaped the history of Broadway and movie musicals. Musicals buffs can flip to any day of the year to discover enlightening, fun—and sometimes snarky—factoids and trivia on their favorite performers and performances.

March 2 (1965) Julie Andrews spun on a mountaintop near Salzburg, Austria, and an iconic film image was born. The difficult helicopter shot memorialized on the cover of this book almost didnt happen: Because of bad weather and the wind the helicopter itself created as it flew perilously close to Andrews, the shot was delayed and required numerous retakes.

May 10 (1899) ""Cant sing, cant act, can dance a little"": so said one Hollywood exec of the screen test of Fred Astaire, born today.

December 10 (1985) The worst film musical ever opened: A Chorus Line. How anyone could take one of the most usccessful and acclaimed stage musicals and turn it into a turgid, lifeless, banal film… only Richard Attenborough knows.

TODAY IN HISTORY: MUSICALS brings fans a daily dose of facts, trivia, and quotes about everything from South Pacific to Moulin Rouge.
