I loved the movie Cabaret! But I understand how it might pale in comparison the the play. I will say though, it's one of the VERY FEW movie musicals that actually works on film. WestSide Story= BAD on film! My five movies, hm? Beauty and the Beast... and then I'm lost. I mean, there are so many, and considering that I watch a total of about... 14-18 hours of the screen a month... it shows you how often I like to be in front of the screen. I despise television, and won't have a working one in the house, except for the DVD capabilities. I do love movies though!
