  1. Oh & I am tickled to death to find out Douglas Shearer is the brother of (one of my favorites) Norma Shearer!!! I have seen his name on countless films & never put 2 & 2 together. I LUV discovering new factoids about film!
  2. The clip definitely shows a lighter side to the life of the great Flo Ziegfeld. Going to the movies was an escape from the hard lives many, many people experienced during the Depression era. I can see why the production codes were established to control the supposed harshness of depicting "real" life. Even in a show made about an earlier era. The common man needed to be soothed as he still needs soothed, but I really don't think that glossing over the reality of life is ever the answer. People are definitely tougher than the production codes assumed they were. Plus, I'm morally horrified by any "thing" that strives to conform the masses. Especially when trying to conform art (film). It just never ends up being a good idea.
  3. I just LUV The Band Wagon! The ole "the show's pretty bad, but we can fix it w a few tweaks here & there" premise gets me every time!
