Neal Gabler on Movie Musicals

March 1st, 2008

Thirteen blogger: Neal Shapiro, President

This Saturday, we’re taking a break from our normal Reel 13 block. If you’re a big fan of the Saturday night classics, don’t worry, because Neal Gabler will be in-studio. Viewers know Neal as the host of our Saturday night classic films, and as you can probably tell, the man knows his film history. But he’s also an accomplished author, professor, and even a news commentator. Neal’s just a man of many talents; must have something to do with that name…

On Saturday, he’ll be on hand to talk about Hollywood Singing And Dancing: A Musical Treasure, which celebrates the movie musicals of Hollywood’s Golden Age. And since my stage career ended with “Oh, What A Beautiful Morning” in the fourth grade play, I can’t wait to see professionals like Debbie Reynolds and Judy Garland at work.
