Back in 2006, the American Film Institute unveiled its own list of the 25 greatest movie musicals of all time (AFI List). Its an interesting list from a figure skating perspective because most of the musicals on that list have inspired at least one program by a skater and it therefore highlights the impact musicals have had on figure skating down the years. Take a look at the film excerpts and compare them with the figure skating programs they have inspired (for the first 15 musicals on the list). I think that in their own unique way, the skating programs certainly do the musicals justice. 1. Singin' In The Rain Film Excerpt Kurt Browning - Singin in the Rain 2.
