Musical of the Day: Annie Get Your Gun.


Musical of the Day: Annie Get Your Gun (1950) Irving Berlin ...
I decided to watch this movie today because I'd never seen it and have heard it's similar in style to Calamity Jane which I also love. I adored this musical so SO much! My favourite musicals are always the classics and this slotted into that category perfectly. I think I prefer Calamity Jane because I personally found Calamity funnier. Annie Get Your Gun contains a lot of "well-known" songs and I enjoyed the story and actors as well. I also appreciated that it wasn't a very long movie. Normally musicals can be around 2-3 hours long (especially the older ones) and they're a mission to sit through if they don't spike your interest from the get go, but this movie was only about an hour and 40 minutes and it held my interest all the way through. I liked that I could sing along and it was just a really cute film. Perfect to watch on my day off from work! I hope you enjoyed reading about my Musical of the Day. Let me know if you want me to do more of these!
Thanks so much for reading,
Alexandria.
