Released in 1994 in celebration of MGM's 70th Anniversary, That's Entertainment III brings back to the screen the stars and musical numbers that have excited audiences for generations.
In the acclaimed tradition of its two predecessors, That's Entertainment III incorporates scores of famous songs and dances from MGM films and reunites nine of the performers who rose to international stardom through their MGM association. This third installment in the That's Entertainment trilogy features astonishing classic musical moments, great comedy and romantic teams and unearths rare footage with marvelous big-star scenes originally unseen because they were cut from their films.
Gene Kelly opens and closes the picture as nine starry hosts including June Allyson, Cyd Charrise, Lena Horne, Howard Keel, Ann Miller, Debbie Reynolds, Mickey Rooney and Esther Williams present this must-see assemblage of Golden Era treasures, none of which has been seen in either of the previous films. Written, produced and directed by Bud Friedgen and Michael J. Sheridan, the film was executive produced by Peter Fitzgerald.
