American omitted Musical Feature Films

by bderoes-12985 | created - 09 Jan 2018 | updated - 5 months ago | Public

Titles deliberately omitted from my American Musical Feature Films list. Expanded to include TV movies, specials.

A few are tagged as Music/Musical, but I've watched them and would not consider them either.

Around 360 titles are singing-cowboy westerns made between 1930-1960. I didn't want to watch those as part of my sequential viewing of musicals, so I put them aside.

The majority, 1385+ titles, have "release" year 1998+, and too few votes for me to believe they were released in theatres across the country.
