  1. 1.In the first scene it is obvious that they are very attracted to one another. Eddy/McDonald make a wonderful pair, and you can see the attraction in both scenes. They are fighting it in the canoe, and while she is in the little dive singing, you can see the flirtatious eyes and smiles coming from both of them. 2.Eddy/McDonald make a wonderful pair. Like Astaire/Rodgers, they are a match made in heaven. I really like that about films from that era; once a duo was formed, they stuck together through so many films. You will notice this with Dick Powell, Ruby Keeler and Joan Blondell. You will also see it in the Road To movies as well. Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour worked great together. But to get back on subject- they make a wonderful duo through-out all of their movies. 3.The theme is they resist one another in the beginning, but by the end, they are in love. During the movie you will see the hesitation and resistance to be with one another, and at times you will see the woman trying her absolute hardest to not fall for the gentleman, but in the end she always does. I do love that Hollywood adopted a code, as it keeps the movies classic and timeless. I wish that movies these days followed such codes and remained in that same timeless state.
  2. 1. I do agree that it exhibits a brighter side of life! During the Great Depression, the movies were an escape for most, so to have a movie that exhibits a care free attitude with life is just what people were wanting back in those days. Even the thought of being able to tip a doors man five pounds was probably very enthralling for some! To think that someone could be so care free with money back during those times! I am sure it made some dream of better days, and a time in the future when they may also be able to tip five pounds. Little did they know that the Great Depression would be ending three years after this film, so yes, I believe this exhibited very realistic times that were to come. 2. I think a common theme that we see through-out movies, even to this day, is of who will get the girl. Another theme is of money and status. Since money was so sparse back then, it seems fitting to include money in the pictures. 3. I imagine it would have been a little more risqué. For example, when she enters her dressing room, I feel we would have seen more of her undressing (behind a divider) while she talks with her maid in regards to the flowers.
