WITH WORDS AND MUSIC - 1937 - COLORIZED - PERRY COMO - RARE DVD
Mickey Rooney, Tom Drake, Betty Garrett, Janet Leigh, and a host of top musical performers headline this extravagant biographical tribute to the prolific songwriting duo of Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart.
In the early 1920s, the diminutive Hart (Rooney) teams up with Rodgers (Drake) to launch a successful 24-year music career, penning nearly 500 songs with him until Hart's death in 1943 at the age of 47. Rodgers marries his dream girl (Leigh) while Hart pines after Peggy (Garrett), eventually spiraling into depression and death after her rejection.
