  1. Striesand really puts her self into this song we see her shyness and how reflective she is the camera follows her and captures all the emotion putting Omar Sherif in the background. In doing that it let's her shine.
  2. This scene is pertinent because after all the work that's been put into Eliza she finds out that it was all for a bet now she is faced with a uncertain future. Questions like does she continue on as his Ward of sorts? Now that she is this proper, lady where does she go from here? And Rex Harrison remains clueless about her fears he won the bet that's it as far as he is concerned so when she screams at him and throws his slippers at him he still remains clueless as to why if you really boil this movie Down to it's essence it's all about Rex Harrisons characters ego can he take this street lady (Audrey Hepburn) and make her a proper lady? He does so but in doing so her throws her humanity away she is just a bet to be won! It kind of shows us a little about our self's how much do we see our self's in Rex Harrisons character
  3. In the two clips you see two different sides of Robert Preston one a slick shyster the other a suave slick troublemaker.one is trying to sell to the public the other is showing the audience themself. I saw him in the last Starfighter and even in that one he was trying to convince a young boy to come with him and fight in a real star battle. In this and the other clips he is this convincing kind of con artist naughty devil may care character.
  4. this scene has the look and feel of a 40s or early 50s musical. i like the fact that Rosalind Russell just shows up and and takes over and the little bubble girl is little risque because we have seen the bubble dance but only with adults even if don.t see her dance just looking at her we can imagine.
  5. I love gene kelly as the struggling artist the use of color in the ending scene is brilliant and how it disappears at the end as does gene kelly and we only see the rose. I don,t think of him as unlikable he is just frustrated at his paintings being unappreciated and we see that come out when the third yr student tries to critiqe his paintings and he shoos her off
  6. whats fun about this scene, is that the two donald o,connor and gene kelly are like two naughty boys and as they proceed through the scene they push,pull and tease the poor professor and then proceed to pile stuff on top of him at the end. they take a little tongue twister and do a dance number around it is great.
  7. I love this film it has been a while since i watched it. she presents this tomboy persona in the movie which was very rare in the 50s and Doris Day pulls it off very well. she goes from a tomboy in the begining and ends up a lady in the end we have fun watching this transformation
  8. I love this movie and the song it incompass,s everything about the movies you can,t hear this song and not think of various movie scenes. And in this scenes and through their interaction they drive home that point and they all play off each other Beautifully.
  9. In this clip it was very rare to to show blacks portrayed as real down to earth people. Before they were portrayed in comedic roles or as butlers, servants here they are shown as real people with real life problems we see them as people with the times being what they were, (racial inequality) this was a risky movie but it works on many levels.
  10. It's interesting in this film (take me out to the ball game) it's the woman going after the man not the other way around. In the movie on the town when they pair up Sinatra and Garrett again it,s girl chases boy.
  11. I first saw Judy like all of us in the wizard of Oz. And as she grew up we watched her grow on screen with each movie she did. Meet me in St Louis, Easter parade, in the good old summertime, and with each movie she did you could see the enjoyment in her face. It's sad we lost her so early.
  12. We see Fred Astaire trying to woo ginger Rogers and at first she is resistant but as the scene progresses she slowly warms to his charm and matches his moves step for step it's almost like they are trying to one up each other and she is saying I can match each one of your steps and they both end up enjoying the competition. Its light-hearted and we enjoy the the competetiness of the two
  13. I like how the scene is like a rollercoaster of emotions for us. We don't understand what is being said but we get the gist.first we have the argument about the garter which is amusing now but back then to see a woman's garter on screen was a bit shocking.then when she pulls out the gun we are really shocked. Then her husband shows up and things get awkward she appears to shoot herself which we find out minutes later is a pistol with blanks it's almost like a miniature soap opera. And with Marie,s facial expression it also tells its own story
  14. Yes she is being woo,Ed by two prospects for their show and she is making light of her decision which one will I choose. As to question # 3 she would have been dressed more scantily and the tone would would have taken a more somber feel
  15. 1) in this film Hitchcock open not in a crowd or inside somewhere but in the open 2) we are drawn into this dream and the voice of Joan fontaine helps with this 3) when we finally see Manderley the shadow cast by the moon moving over the house almost gives it a personality of it's own so much so we want to find out its story
