broadwaydon replied to Dr. Vanessa Theme Ament's topic in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALSIf i have to pick just one, it would be FUNNY GIRL. That movie introduced me to my very favorite singer and actress, Barbra Streisand. I have a lifelong love affair with the Broadway musical (hence the nickname), and so I enjoy many of the movie adaptations of theater work. (Often, though, I prefer the Broadway versions.) I love MY FAIR LADY, though I wish they allowed Julie andrews to have the lead. And, like so many others, I really enjoy SOUND OF MUSIC, although I very much prefer the Broadway script. And I can't let Christmas go by without watching WHITE CHRISTMAS. I'm very excited about this course.
broadwaydon replied to TopBilled's topic in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALSIs there a written list of the films that will be shown? I saw the list on the course website, but could not read it when I brought it up. I'm blind and use a screen reader and/or Braille display to access the computer; so images without alt text do me no good. I can easily go through the schedule day by day; it's just time consuming to do it that way, lol.
