Haiku Review – Classic Musicals

The GWW brain trust has always been exposed to force-fed a bevy of musicals, both on the stage and the big screen. Some are great, some are good, and some are Rock of Ages. Though often forgotten, musical films are an important part of cinematic history, so here are three reviews, silk-woven. Remember, poetry can be about anything.

Singin’ in the Rain (1952)



It’s The Artist with singing
Title sums it up

The Sound of Music (1965)


Nazis hate singing
Seems she shouldn’t be a nun
The hills are alive!


West Side Story (1961)


Shark or Jet, we dance
Gangs used to be less scary
Dance fighting! Jazz hands
