Synopsis

Musician and historian Michael Feinstein is your host for this whirlwind look at the golden age of American popular song, from the '30s through the '50s. The Great American Songbook offers a look at the significant trends in music and the styles of the great tunesmiths of the day, as well as presents dozens of vintage film clips of such artists as Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Lena Horne, and many more performances of the great songs celebrated in this film. Along the way, The Great American Songbook also chronicles the history of the American movie musical and how Hollywood and Tin Pan Alley learned to work together. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
