HOLLYWOOD MUSICALS COLLECTION

£35.00

Product description

Box set containing five classic musicals. In 'West Side Story' (1961), a neighbourhood on New York's West Side provides the setting for a love affair between Tony (Richard Beymer) and Maria (Natalie Wood), a couple of kids caught on opposite sides of a gang war. Maria is the sister of Bernardo (George Chakiris), leader of the Sharks, and Tony is the best friend of Riff (Russ Tamblyn), leader of the Jets. The two gangs are sworn enemies, and nothing Maria or Tony can say will dissuade them from the violence which leads to the film's heartbreaking finale. In 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' (1968), when inventor Caractacus Potts (Dick Van Dyke) acquires a run-down racing car and renovates it for his children, Jeremy and Jemima, he makes a few extra improvements. The car, christened Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, now has the ability to fly, and takes the Potts and their friend, Truly Scrumptious (Sally Ann Howes) on an exciting adventure. Arriving in the kingdom of wicked Baron Bomburst (Gert Frobe), they find themselves pursued by the evil Child Catcher (Robert Helpmann), while the Baron, desperate to get his hands on the car, kidnaps Jeremy and Jemima's grandfather (Lionel Jeffries) by mistake. In 'Fiddler on the Roof' (1971), in pre-Revolutionary Ukraine, Jewish fiddler Tevye (Topol) plans to marry off his three daughters. However, none of the girls chooses what their father considers to be a suitable partner. Meanwhile, the Russian Czar and Cossacks begin a campaign of intimidation against Tevye's village. Songs include 'If I Were a Rich Man' and 'Sunrise, Sunset'. 'Man of La Mancha' (1972) is based on Cervante's Don Quixote, a searcher for 'the impossible dream' - honour, chivalry and adventure. Starring Peter O'Toole and Harry Andrews. Finally, in 'Guys and Dolls' (1955), Nathan Detroit (Frank Sinatra) is a New York gambler who needs $1000 in order to stage a big game during the Prohibition era. To get the money, he issues a typically enigmatic challenge to master gambler Sky Masterson (Marlon Brando): he must dine with a puritanical Salvation Army girl (Jean Simmons) - and the dinner must be in held in Cuba. Masterson wins the bet and also falls for the girl. Features the songs: 'Luck Be a Lady' and 'A Woman in Love'.
