Musical 52: The Great Ziegfeld
Cinemanaut Bill checks out The Great Ziegfeld, a musical biopic about the man behind the famed Ziegfeld Follies. Is combining film genres a smart move, especially when it adds up to three hours?
Worst Disney 52: Johnny Tremain
Cinemanaut John watches Johnny Tremain, the tale of a brave silversmith who fights nobly for the rights of Englishmen (but mostly just because he can't smith silver any more).
Musical 52: Top Hat
Cinemanaut Bill watches Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers tap dance their way through Top Hat, another tale of a Broadway performer overcoming complications to find true love. Again.
Worst Disney 52: Westward Ho, The Wagons!
Cinemanaut John follows Disney to the frontier with Westward Ho, The Wagons! Is the film as exciting as the exclamation point in its name would suggest, or is it as monotonous as the endless prairie its protagonists traverse?
Musical 52: Gold Diggers of 1933
Cinemanaut Bill watches his first Busby Berkeley film of the year, Gold Diggers of 1933, and is blown away by its beautifully cinematic choreography. Still, do the plot and pacing bog it down?
Worst Disney 52: Rob Roy: The Highland Rogue
Cinemanaut John starts his year of the 52 worst live action Disney movies by tackling Rob Roy: The Highland Rogue. Can Disney's foray into the Scottish Highlands provide the swashbuckling adventure it promises?
