SOMETHING FOR THE BOYS IN CONCERT - RARE DVD
Lauren Elaine Taylor (Blossom), Mike Backes (Rocky), Valerie Lynn Williams (Chiquita), Erin Elizabeth Coors (Melanie) Roger Rifkin (Harry). Presented by Musicals Tonight! Something for the Boys was the fifth, last, and least successful Broadway collaboration of songwriter Cole Porter and star Ethel Merman, though it was a hit, running for the entire year of 1943. The three Hart cousins, who have never met -- machinist Blossom, con man Harry, and revue singer Chiquita find out from Lawyer Calhoun that they have inherited property in Texas. However, the place is a wreck. They decide to convert it into a hotel for the wives and girl friends of the soldiers at the Army base next door. Sgt. Rocky Fulton and his fellow band members offer to help pay for the fix up by putting on a show -- what else? The base commander Lt. Col. Grubbs and his wife reluctantly agree to all this. A squatter Tobias Twitch has to be evicted. Rockys society girl friend - Melanie has to be removed from the romantic race for Rocky that Blossom intends to win. And among the songs are Hey, Good Lookin', He's a Right Guy, The Leader of a Big Time Band, Could It Be You?, I'm in Love with a Soldier Boy. Presented concert style, so the actors, in costume, are holding their scripts. The filmer sat in the first row, so you are looking up at the stage.
