Johnny Green leads the MGM Orchestra in this short, which was showing off the studios 30th Anniversary by playing some of the music from their most famous films. We get the title track from SINGIN' IN THE WIND plus the songs "I've Got You Under My Skin", "The Last Time I Saw Paris", "Over the Rainbow" and "Baby, It's Cold Outside" among others. If you're a fan of any of these songs then you'll certainly want to check out this 9-minute short as the orchestra is very tight and Green does a great job bringing this old classics to life. The cinemascope doesn't hurt things either as we get a grand view of the band at work.
