This movie stars Judy Garland (in her last film role), and Dirk Bogarde, with Jack Klugman. Garland plays a American singer who comes to London for a series of concerts.

This color musical stars Gene Kelly and Judy Garland! Garland plays a gal who is in love with a legendary pirate, Macoco. Kelly plays a travling singer, and by accident, Garland mistakenly thinks that he is Mococo, and falls in love with him, even though she’s engaged!

“Don’t get it wet. Keep it aways from bright light. And no matter how much it cries or begs, NEVER EVER feed it after midnight!”       

These are the 3 rules for keeping Gizmo, a mogwai. But as you can probably guess, he gets wet. I can’t really say what happens if he gets wet, because it will give away the movie, so you’ll just have to watch it and see!! I love this movie! I give it a A+!!
