Watch: MGM Celebrates 90th Anniversary with Retrospective Montage
One of the longest running major motion picture studios is Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, or MGM as they're better known today. The studio is on a comeback path after going bankrupt in 2010, and this year marks their 90th anniversary. The studio's history began on April 12th, 1924, and since then the studio has released a rich tapestry of iconic films from classics like Some Like It Hot and In the Heat of the Night, up to more recent endeavors like Skyfall and The Hobbit. This is a fantastic montage of MGM's best films, and while they tend to ignore classic, black and white films, it's still a great little retrospective.
The look back at MGM immediately has me wanting to revisit nearly all of these films if I had the time. Rain Man is one of my favorite films of all time, and you can't go wrong with a rewatching of Rocky, Fargo, The Birdcage or The Princess Bride. Everyone knows the lion's roar from MGM, and the studio is responsible for making the world of cinema what it is today. This little retrospective is more a pat on the back than anything, but these kind of fond looks back at the films of our history, and the new ones making waves today, is something every cinephile can enjoy. We hope MGM has plenty more good films to come.
