summer-stockOn this day in 1950, M-G-M released SUMMER STOCK. Directed by CHARLES WALTERS from a script by GEORGE WELLS, this is a prime example of a typical M-G-M musical. Classic song and dance performed by a cast that includes JUDY GARLAND, GENE KELLY, GLORIA DeHAVEN and EDDIE BRACKEN. Behind-the-scenes drama almost shut the production down but in stoic ‘the show must go on’ fashion, the problems were covered up and the end results are, at times, pretty impressive.
