  1. If she had been more theatrical and expressivecin the film, it would've been more like a performance. Omar's character is mesmerized by Barbra's performance. The way he looks at her is natural. "People" is a beautiful song and performance in the film. The direction and editing fits well indeed.
  2. Both Gaslight and My Fair Lady have the same plot basically. Professor Higgins's house is full of patterns, furniture, and props arranged, which reflects Eliza emotionally. She is dressed in a beautiful red dress, which shows off her charms. He is dressed in a regular tuxedo. The relationship between the two is like they are boyfriend and girlfriend. They argue but yet they appreciate one another.
  3. The masculine performances evolved into different performers. First, Fred Astaire, then Bing Crosby, Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Elvis, and the list goes on. Robert Preston's performance would belong with Rex Harrison. In "Ya Got Trouble", he is in command and speaking loudly with confidence. In Victor/Victoria, his performance is more cabaret related. I remember watching S.O.B. and thinking he was great in that movie plus in Victor/VictoriaVictoria and The Music Man.
  4. The scene looks back at how musicals were in the 1930s. The blonde haired girl reminded me of Shirley Temple. She entered the room as this large figure in charge. She knows about what's going on in the clip very well. She becomes in charge. The lyrics has a double meaning. Some may hear it innocent and some may hear it subversive.
  5. The ballet scene is more of a fantasy sequence than realistic. Jerry Mulligan is a "regular guy" whom doesn't fit with the other characters we see. The other characters we see appear to wear colors that represent them, like Jerry. Jerry wears white, the student wears red, the rich lady wears gray and has a driver that is driving a green car.
  6. The pre-dance movements act smoothly and have great timing. The professor acts very stiff and wants to do everything his way, no help from the other two. There's the straight man, the clown and the serious type. Each character represents a type of masculinity.
  7. She acts and talks very boyish, far from the other musicals where a female is feminine. Doris Day's voice is wonderful and her performances got better in other musicals she's in. Her performance adds her own persona to the movie because it makes the character likable and enjoyable to watch.
  8. The four characters seem to be cooperative and know each other like friends, playing and clowning around. The color of the costumes matched, along with different suits and the dress Fabray wears in this clip. They all were in sync, which I enjoy watching.
  9. The way the scene is shot, it looks like time has passed by. She shows undying love for her spouse. It could be addressed for both husband and child. Its mixed, misunderstood and complicated. It shows some positive steps about that time period.
  10. Everything was in time, rhythm and clarity of the scene. It was fun to see Betty dominating Frank. As soon as Frank runs away from Betty, going up the stairs, that means a song is going to happen.
  11. The Wizard of Oz was the first Judy Garland movie I seen and it was on VHS. I thought she was beautiful and had a great singing voice. After watching both clips, I still think she is beautiful and talented. A Star is Born was the movie I've seen that really shown her mature. I mean these clips shown her grow up, but A Star is Born really showed her as a mature performer.
  12. Patriotism is the biggest part of this clip. Alot of flag waving, the parade, and marching music fits this clip. Cohen walks through the White House, which is another big part promoting America's values. The dialogue says alot about American values. I think it would not be as serious if it opened with the Fourth of July parade.
  13. To me Ginger and Fred are flirting instead of battling with the sexes. Top Hat has more musical numbers between the two of them. Both men and females cold make fum of each other in the 1930s screwball comedies.
  14. The garter belts, gun, and unzipped dress were the props of "The Lubitsch Touch". The dialogue between Alfred and Paulette was intriguing to find out what they were arguing about. When we seen the items close up, it reminded me of Hitchcock, even though he didn't do musicals.
  15. This scene reminded me of a love scene that is in most of these classic films. To me, this scene is charming and romantic. I have seen MacDonald in San Francisco and Cairo. She was lovely and charming in those movies. too. While she was singing, the people was not listening to her, nor paying attention to her. Of course they all paid attention to the "regular" singer.
