Wasn't He In...?

These are the movies we have accumulativly seen, and a small description of each.

Beau Geste (1939)
Story of a man in the French Foreign Legion. Donny plays the young Beau Geste. He doesn't have a very big part, so don't expect much.

Francis the Talking Mule (1949)
Peter Stirling (Donny) befriends a Mule named Francis when it saves his life in Burma, and guess what? The mule can talk! Five more films follow the chronicles of Mr. Stirling and his Mule:
Francis Goes to the Races (1951)
Francis Goes to West Point (1952)
Francis Covers the Big Town (1953)
Francis Joins the WACs (1954)
Francis in the Navy (1955)

Singin' in the Rain (1952)
Donny stars as Cosmo Brown, the very funny and talented Head of the Music Department at Monumental Pictures. His best friend is played by Gene Kelly. We think there might be something in the plot about Kelly and Debbie Reynolds, but we were too occupied with Cosmo's crazy antics to notice.

There's No Business Like Show Business (1954)
Donny stars as Timmy, the youngest of a five person family act on vaudeville. He's so studly he gets Marilyn Monroe in this one.

Anything Goes (1956)
Donny stars as Ted Adams, a fresh young actor who's going to star in a broadway musical with none other than Bing Crosby! But, they need to find a leading lady. Well, Bing signs a girl and Donny signs a girl, and everything goes haywire! Some good songs in this one, and Mitzi Gaynor is cute as Donny's love interest.

Wonders of Aladdin (1961)
Um...see the review page

Ragtime (1981)
Intense emotional Drama in which Donny sings a song written especially for him (we think) "I Could Love a Million Girls"

Toys (1992)
Donny "stars" as Robin Williams' dying father. Williams inherits his toy company.

Out to Sea (1997)
Donny "stars" as Jonathan, the wise cracking dance host. Watch for some sweet moves on the dance floor following possibly the greatest line in Donny's career.
