TCM “Must-See Musicals” Update for December 2021

I just finished watching the 50th movie listed in the great book from Turner Classic Movies (TCM) Must-See Musicals: 50 Show-Stopping Movies We Can’t Forget by Richard Barrios (Running Press, 2017; available on, on the Shop TCM website, and, hopefully, from your favorite bookseller). More information about the book and my viewing project this year is here. I loved this book and this project and am sad that it has come to an end.

Here’s the rundown of the final movies I watched in December (courtesy of the Movies Past and Present Instagram feed).

Chicago (2002)

La La Land (2016)
