That’s Entertainment, Part II is a knockout. The very handsome and polished sequel to That’s Entertainment! transforms excerpts from perhaps $100 million worth of classic Metro library footage into a billion dollars worth of fun, excitement, amusement, escapism, fantasy, nostalgia and happiness.

In addition, Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly shine in sharp bridging footage, well directed by Kelly.

There are approximately 100 remembered players to be seen in segments of about 75 films.

Bulk of the footage is Metro musicals. However, in a good pace change there are periodic brief collages including The Marx Brothers, Spencer Tracy-Katharine Hepburn, Clark Gable, Laurel & Hardy, and Buster Keaton.
