  1. My Big Fat Greek Wedding would make an amazing musical, to be honest. All it's missing is some huge numbers. A few other movies I could see as musicals are Spirited Away from Studio Ghibli (it would be a huge colorful deal!), the Age of Adeline, Some Like It Hot, and Sleepless In Seattle or You've Got Mail. Yes, we have "She Loves Me", but the whole premise would be different. They could sing the emails Joe and Kathleen send to each other and it would be a more modern setting.
  2. That's a wonderful point! I am a long time Shirley Temple enthusiast but I can't imagine what she would have been like as Dorothy, not even if I think about it hard enough. I don't want to minimize anybody's childhood dreams but I definitely don't think it would have had the longevity it did if she were in the starring role. But like you said, she definitely did hold her own against some of the bigger names at the time.

    The Wizard of Oz

    My new favorite line as of tonight is "people without brains do an awful lot of talking!" because of how relevant it is for today. I still love the scene where she realizes her home is the best place to be. I got emotional during it tonight, actually. My least favorite part, still, is anything with the Wicked Witch of the West. Margret Hamilton was AMAZING but she gives me the shivers.
  4. I would have loved to see the original cast of Wicked. I've only worn out my cast recording and haven't replaced it yet. . .
  5. Old Musicals: Hello Dolly! Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Sound of Music White Christmas Meet Me In St. Louis Summer Magic Old Musical Songs: Don't Rain on My Parade Pure Imagination Bali Ha'i People Will Say We're In Love Marian the Librarian New Musicals: La La Land Beauty & the Beast (2017) the Greatest Showman New Musical Songs: Evermore Someone In the Crowd This Is Me/Come Alive
  6. Yankee Doodle Dandy seems to go on for your whole entire life, doesn't it?
  7. I personally didn't like it at all. I found Queenie and Eddie completely annoying. I only cared for Hank to be honest, my heart broke for her when she let Eddie go and when Queenie and Eddie kept saying she could go live with them. I certainly don't think it was the "worst" musical ever but it wasn't as uplifting or as inspiring as I thought it would be.

    DAILY DOSE OF DELIGHT #2 (From Rose Marie)

    Two things I noticed from the clips. The subtle punch that was the line "nothing fit with Maude". Maybe I am reading into it but it seemed highly suggestive to me. Especially given the look on MacDonald's face when he said it. I loved Eddy's delivery though, there wasn't a hint of salaciousness in it and he wasn't trying to make Rose Marie blush, it was just very matter-of-fact in a way I found hilarious. The second thing I noticed was how tight the singer's dress was and how sexual, so to speak, her movements were. I think they wanted her to look more suggestive next to MacDondald's more uptight virtuous Rose Marie.
  9. Least favorite musicals: - the Phantom of the Opera (2004) I'm not a fan of the Phantom of the Opera in general because it sympathizes villains but doesn't make the heroes people you want to root for anyways. As far as the movie goes, I think it's a weak cast. Although Gerard Butler does a better job at the Phantom than Russel Crow did as Javert. - Grease Not to say I don't like songs from it, I do. I just think it's overdone and overplayed and people have a false sense of how good it actually is. - Hairspray (2007) Almost everything about it annoys me. Except for when Queen Latifah sings "I Know Where I've Been". - Funny Face One word. FRED ASTIRE. Least favorite musical numbers: - ANYTHING Sharpay sings in the High School Musical movies. Sure they're big and fun and catchy but Ashely Tisdale sounds whiny. - Broadway Melody from Singing in the Rain - Stars from the 2012 version of Les Miserables. It was SOOOO pain full to watch and hear. - In the Dark of the Night from the cartoon version of Anastasia, it so completely creeped me out as a kid and it still kind of does.
  10. It was definitely a lighter prospective. The first scene is William Powell throwing money around and making jokes about trying to lose weight. The light-heartedness of it brings to mind a line from the Shirley Temple Story that the Wonderful World of Disney aired 16 years ago, "people go to the movies to forget their problems."
  11. I watch TCM because aside from Disney movies, I was raised on old films. My father still believes if you want to appreciate anything today, you need to know where it came from. TCM is a great channel to find undiscovered gems and to rewatch old favorites. Plus, I feel connected to my deceased grandparents when I watch the channel because they all loved it.
  12. My siblings and I break into song a lot. . .
  13. My siblings and I are all in our 20s now and we still quote and sing Shirley Temple movies to each other.
  14. Donald O'Conner is probably one of my favorites of all times. His performance in Something In the Wind with Deanna Durbin has always stuck out in my mind.
