  • 77. The Genre Dimension • What expectations do you have of a musical? How does “Singin’ in the Rain” meet those expectations, and violate or subvert those expectations? • How have musicals changed over the decades? • In what ways do musicals reflect the mores, attitudes, and fixations of their eras? • How do you react when a character in a movie bursts into song? Why do you react this way? • How does the factor of verisimilitude play in to the acceptance or rejection of musicals as a genre? • Are animated musicals more palatable than live action musicals? Why?
