Theres an unusual harvest at Falbury Farm: beans, hay show tunes. Its a bumper crop, too, with Judy Garland and Gene Kelly leading all the hoofing, singing and sparking. In her final MGM musical, Garland plays Jane Falbury, a farm owner more than a bit riled when her aspiring-actress sister (Gloria De Haven) shows up with a theatrical troupe that wants to stage a musical in the familys barn. Any guess who becomes the shows sudden star after its lead runs off with a Broadway actor? Highlights include Kellys shuffle-and-squeak You, Wonderful You dance solo making use of loose boards and newspaper on the floor, tuxedo-topped Garlands leggy, joyous Get Happy and a Kelly/Phil Silvers country-bumpkin bit of Heavenly Music backed by woofing canines. After a show like this, howre you gonna keep these kids down on the farm?
