Let's face the music and dance
For my parents,
who always said "you can"...
For my husband,
who loves completely and unconditionally...
For my friends,
who continually teach me about life, love,
and the pursuit of happiness...
And for Sunshine,
who rescues me everyday
with hugs and kisses.
First words
They met musically for the first time in 1927...Broadway and Hollywood.
I have decided that when I am a star, I will be every inch and every moment the star!
  Everybody from the studio gate man to the highest executive will know it.--Gloria Swanson

•Every fan of musicals will want this book

•Sparkling text, glowing photographs, innovative design

•Royalties from the sale of this book are being donated to The Motion Picture & Television Fund, Hollywood’s charity of choice, and The Actors’ Fund Broadway’s favorite charity.

For everyone who loves movie musicals, for everyone who loves Broadway musicals, this entertaining illuminating book provides insights on exactly what happens when stage meets screen. Do sparks fly—or do they fizzle? Are there fireworks—or waterworks? Each show, each movie, has its own history, its own juicy stories, its own dark side, its own ironic twists. Spectacular photographs—many published here for the first time—let theater buffs and movie lovers alike witness these intricate, intriguing sagas. Why was Gypsy a smash on stage and not nearly as successful on screen? Why did it take twenty-seven years for Chicago to travel from Broadway to Hollywood? All the answers, all the pictures, all the razzle dazzle that is show business make the marriage of movies and stage musicals truly A Fine Romance.
