Lena Horne luxuriates in a bath during 'Cabin in the Sky'. Cyd Charisse vamps through 'The Band Wagon's Two-Faced Woman. Judy Garland leads a street-swelling March of the Doagies in 'The Harvey Girls'. Unforgettable scenes all - and all but forgotten because they were cut from their respective films. Remarkable moments you couldn't see until now make up much of this star-studded salute to the golden era of musicals. Gene Kelly, Mickey Rooney, Esther Williams and six more luminaries host the eye-filling dream-factory clips. Other highlights: Stagehands scrambling to move sets and stay ahead of dancer Eleanor Powell's Fascinatin' Rhythm, the Ross Sisters contorting like soft pretzels and Garland and Rooney redefining pizzazz. "What a time it was," Kelly says. In this marvelous treat, what a time it still is.
