Sang this in elementary school. I think it was intro to the music man musical.
and a kick in the balls! Well that's entertainment….
One of the greatest of the great MGM musicals. It's one of those films you think of when you think "They don't make them like that any more." Thank God we're now able to see them whenever we like on DVD. Of the 1200 or so films in my collection, I'd say around 75% of them are pre 1970.
"The Band Wagon," from which this is a clip, is a wonderful musical. Kind of a companion piece to "Singing in the Rain," which I love, but a bit darker and deeper, so it doesn't get near the attention and affection it deserves.
Vivziepop brought me here
my goodness, what garbage!
I love Oscar Levant, but he definitely wasn't a dancer.
The Jam brought me here.
The genious of American actors.
This song was clearly written by a 50's dude. Even in Jean Belmondo's subject header Nanette Fabray gets last billing. The dame in the skirt is the only reason why I came to see this puff piece.
Ms. Nanette Fabray is the one you cannot take your eyes off of – could she be more darling?
i would wear her entire ensemble today!its gorgeous!!!
!Una maravilla!. Puro Broadway con ese excepcional cuarteto. !Para disfrutar!José María Álvarez Martínez
I use this song for dance 💃
Funny, I reckon I've heard this song at least a few hundred times and I only just realised when Levant sings "a gay divorcee who is after her ex" he is referencing one of Astaire's biggest successes. How meta!
LIFE!!! every sec of every day, in every place & in every way. ENTERTAINMENT!!!! It's Just Entertainment….. Life's Greatest Revelation in Deed & in Fact. Why SO Serious? Forget the Stress ,Forget the rest, just get on stage & play your part as You, at best….. What more can 1 do? (∆men) (chop it up or dice it up, cut it up anway u like. But that's WORD'LIFE THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT:-) D?>™
I have to sing this song for my fifth grade chorus
Thank God for the great MGM musicals of the Golden Age of Hollywood. I highly recommend the MGM documentary "That's Entertainment" from 1974.
The “Golden Age of Hollywood” is a gift that America gave the world. You’re welcome world.
Marvelous. It always make me smile. The lyrics are so witty and clever.
They talk weird
Amazing how much joy we get from entertainers who have been dead for years. Thanks and THANKS.
LyricsA clown with his pants falling downOr the dance that's a dream of romanceOr the scene where the villain is mean.That's entertainment!The lights on the lady in tightsOr he bride with the guy by her sideOr the ball where she gives it her all.That's entertainment!The plot can be hot, simply teeming with sexA gay divorcee who is after her exIt could be Oedipus RexWhere a chap kills his father and causes lots of bother.The clerk who is thrown out of workBy the boss who is thrown for a lossBy the skirt who is doing him dirtThe world is a stage; the stage is a world of entertainment!It might be a fight like you see on the screenA swain getting slain for the love of a queenSome great Shakespearean sceneWhere a ghost and a prince meet, and everyone ends in mincemeat.The guy who was waving the flagThat began with the mystical handHip hooray! The American wayThe world is a stage; the stage is a world of entertainment!
The only one left alive in 2017 is Nanette Fabray
Wish Google had the entire show.
A gay divorcé who is after HER ex?!…Wth XD
Fred Astaire could fall head over heels down a staircase and it would still look amazingly graceful. A great clip!…
Fred Astaire even bobs his head more graceful than most!
