Here's another terrific column by Greg Crosby, bemoaning the demise of the musical comedy show, and the lack of decent talent. "What we don't have are well-rounded performers who can so it all; sing, dance, and act in musical comedy. The real old-timers learned that stuff in vaudeville, later performers learned it while under contract at the studios...There are no Bob Hopes, Fred Astaires, Mickey Rooneys, or Donald O'Connors anymore. There are no Ginger Rogers, Judy Garlands, Betty Grables, or Debbie Reynolds anymore." Read it all, and go back in time.
