    That winning smile.

    This is technically a laugh, but a smile is also involved. Judy Garland, ca. 1943

    Bringing Up Baby (1938) v. What's Up Doc? (1972)

    I enjoy both versions. Guess I'm in the minority here. When I first checked out Bringing up Baby from the library, I was about 15 years old, and I loved it. I watched the movie about 3 times within the span of a week. I don't know what it was about it that made me enjoy it so much. I saw What's Up Doc a few months later, as a matter of fact. I love Barbra Streisand, and thought she did a great job in this. I like how the two movies have several similarities, but are each different in their own ways.

    A TOWN CALLED PANIC (2010)-it may be stop motion but it's great

    Thanks for bringing this one to my attention! I'd never heard of it before now. I just watched the trailer and I'm thinking about trying to watch it.

    Carole Lombard....Star of the Month?

    She really does. "My Man Godfrey" is one of my favorite comedies. I absolutely loved her in it. I love Bill Powell as well, but she's really the reason I go back and re-watch it.

    I Just Watched...

    I didn't make this, I posted it on my blog, but it's nice to know other people share the same sentiments haha.
  6. It's apparently closing after this weekend, I think.

    Changes Coming for the Academy Awards

    This made me laugh.
  8. Not a casting idea, but "Boys in the Band" was just recently revived on Broadway at the Booth theatre, starring Andrew Rannells, Zachary Quinto, and Jim Parsons, among others. Thought I'd let you know in case you wanted to check it out

    No Loud Breathing Allowed

    This is so upsetting to me. I used to work at a movie theater, and I honestly would not have listened to that guy who complained. It's just so upsetting that that little girl has a limited number of activities she can partake in, and some idiot feels the need to complain about her. Sad.

    *Spielberg now remaking *"West side story"

    Yes, my arch-nemesis, Andrew Lloyd Webber, wrote the music/lyrics for the Sunset Boulevard Broadway show haha. I guess I'm okay with a movie version as long as their Norma is actually talented (both in the acting and vocal departments).

    What Are You Watching Now?

    Waiting for TCM’s “Big Lebowski” to start. I’ve seen this movie about 5 times within the past 1.5 years and I can’t believe I shelled out the $$ to see it in theaters. Actually, scratch that: I can.

    *Spielberg now remaking *"West side story"

    I can see West Side Story being remade more so than other classic films because it seems like it would be quite relevant to today’s social issues.

    Changes Coming for the Academy Awards

    I'll admit I haven't actually been all that interested in the Academy Awards in years of late. I used to enjoy watching when I was younger, but now I feel like they are just pointless. The only awards show I will even watch regularly are the Tony Awards, as I am a theater fan myself, and feel like that one hasn't completely sold out to the network or anything yet.

    I Just Watched...

    MY NAME IS BARBRA (1965) The 1965 television special starring Barbra Streisand and a live orchestra. Netflix just recently uploaded several of Barbra's live concert specials, so I've made a goal to watch all of them in haste lest they get removed. This special was the first one Barbra ever did; it was broadcast on April 28, 1965 (just 4 days after Barbra's 23rd birthday). In the intro, Barbra spoke about how the network heads were doubtful that the special would bring in enough viewers due to the fact that there were no other people performing besides Barbra, and parts of it were filmed at Bergdorf Goodman's. Nevertheless, the special was aired, and I found it to be quite entertaining. The special is split up into 3 sections. Section 1 deals with childhood songs, Section 2 deals is a sort of commentary on class/status, and Section 3 is merely a couple of songs sung to the live audience without costumes/props, etc. My favorite two songs that Barbra sang, were "Sweet Zoo" and "Second Hand Rose." I am quite familiar with both of these; they just happen to be 2 of my favorite Streisand songs. There was an introduction to "Second Hand Rose," in which Barbra spoke about how she loves to buy clothes from thrift shops (I have no idea whether or not this was true, or merely a relative anecdote), and she brilliantly segued into the song. One thing that I noticed, was how funny she really was. It's also quite something to have a television special of your very own at age 23. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I love Streisand, and it was a nice glimpse into the past, as well as her career in general.
  15. It's something a lot of us have had to attempt to get used to. It seems almost every day there's a new stream of spam on here.
