  1. I was totally ignorant of the “Codeand a large number of bodies. After reading and hearing in the lecture notes and videos today, I looked up the code and it’s history. I noticed last night while watching another film from 1929 the unusual violence with guns going off all over the place. I was quite surprised but realise now just how big an impact this had on film production for so many years. It seemed to have a fairly immediate impact once it was enforced and now answers the question as to why all the couples in film slept in separate beds. I’m learning so much.
  2. On your last Screen shot, there are 4 tabs at the top of the screen. Learning Objectives Lecture Notes Lecture Video The far right is DAILY DOSE #1. If if you click on the tabs in order (it defaults to number 1) you will be able to read and watch in order. But you can click in any order. I do hope this helps. John
  3. Well I’ve listened to it three times and it’s stuck in my head now. And chimerical is a new one for me too! Fantabulous Dr Ament!
  4. So many. I mean, if it’s a musical, I’ll almost assuredly love it. Even the Greatest Showman. Wow! La La Land. All pushing the boundaries and still doing new things after 90 years of musicals. But probably my favourite is a lesser known one, Two Weeks With Love. Superb and so funny. Love it. My dear departed Mum called me up one Saturday afternoon 20 something years ago to tell me it was being shown on a free to air channel in Eastern Australia. And we just HAD to watch it. It’s been our favourite ever since. A very young Debbie Reynolds is amazing and so cute and funny, her sense of comedic timing evident even at such a young age. Riccardo Montalban such a debonair character and dances so well. But Jane Powell, wow that voice AND she can dance too. So many great songs but such a fun film. It’s not the greatest but it’s my favourite because it no worries reminds me so much of my Mum and how much she loved musicals. I fell in love with Doris Day because of her. I still remember the weird looks I got from the guy at the video store as we rented all of Doris' big hits. So funny. He just didn’t get it. So many don’t but how sad that they are missing our on this amazing genre that illicits such fondness and warmth of heart. Is it the dancing, the singing, the storylines? I think it’s everything put together. Wow.
