    Classical music

    My favorite film scene in which classical music was incorporated (ok, it's technically Opera but close enough)- from LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL: Sorry I couldn't find a clip of the entire scene. It's very moving.

    Ohhh. . . .that dress

    Frances Langford's nightclub scene dress in THE BAMBOO BLONDE struck me as a little risque for it's time (1946.) Very nice gown, still, on a very nice looking gal.

    Disliked Movie Settings or Story Types

    I don't like torture in a film, either. In the case of SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, however, I think it was important to have that visual to convey the desperation of the characters.

    Classical music

    Growing up, I was aware of a lot of classical music because my dad listened to it. I remember being a bit confused the first time I saw 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY because of the use of classical music in the film. I had never seen a film before then in which the film's music was not written specifically for it. My dad had to explain it to me. 😄

    TCM Underground - 2019

    Anyone watch SOMETIMES AUNT MARTHA DOES DREADFUL THINGS? I found myself alternately laughing and shaking my head. Bits of it looked more like it was shot as a school PSA 😄. I think if I had gone to a theater to see this one, I would have either fallen asleep or walked out. It was a nice change from the 80's nightclub-style of Undergrounds we had in the past 6 months, though.
  8. I just became very jealous of you! I would love to see it on the big screen, too.

    mary poppins returns

    I'm sure it does; your Disney reviews are very thorough. I think that may be another reason I only rated it as enjoyable. I always have high expectations from Disney films.

    Gregory Hines gots own postal stamp

    I don't really collect them, but an aunt of mine bought me the Lon Chaney set one year because she knew I was a fan. I was delighted; I still have it!

    mary poppins returns

    I saw the film. It certainly is beautifully shot. As a fan of musicals,though, only two of the songs were memorable for me. "Trip A Little Light Fantastic", a catchy tune along with some nice choreography, and "A Cover Is Not A Book", a show-within-a-show number with some nifty rapping by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Overall, an enjoyable flick.

    TCM SEARCH IS DEAD

    That's exactly what I get, too. What's annoying is that it takes 2-3 minutes where it "looks" like it is searching, then the 504 ERROR message appears.
