Musical Sunday: Carrying the Banner

Apr 04, 2010 20:35

Enough of these everybody's-seen-'em-and-loves-'em musical numbers. Here's the opening ensemble song from Newsies (1992). Much-maligned initially; now a cult classic. Most of the folks in this movie can carry a tune, although few of them carry it very gracefully. But it's fun!

Because: Veddy young Christian Bale. Robert Duvall as Joseph Pulitzer. Unionization of scruffy newsboys circa 1900. Acrobatic synchronized dances in the streets! Stirring strike anthems!
