    Casablanca help

    I'll try to answer all those questions, even though I don't have complete responses to every one. 1) what is your overall opinion about Casablanca? Perfectly written, acted, directed. Not as daring as I normally like movies. 2) What did you think of it the first time you saw it? I thought it was good but unremarkable. I've warmed up to it more since. 3) The second? Sorry, I've only watched it once. I have seen Carrotblanca a couple times. 4) more? if you have. NA 5) What do you think about the cast and characters? All very engaging. Some of my favorite actors: Lorre, Rains, Greenstreet, Bois, Veidt. 6) How well was the movie written? The dialogue was great. It was weaker during the moments where the plot showed through the characterizations. 7) Was anything funny to you, why? Sure, there was a lot of good comedy. 8) What are some of your favorite lines? "I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!" "Your winnings, sir." "Oh, thank you very much. Everybody out at once!" 9) What do you think about the ending? It bothered me that nobody showed any concern for what would happen to Sam. 10) Should the ending be different? No. 11) If you said yes then why? NA 12) Who is your favorite character, why? I always like Peter Lorre, but Rains as Renault was probably the most interesting with the best lines. 13) What do you think of Ricks farewell speech? "Hill of beans" is a very dated phrase. Can't decide if that makes it better. 14) Would you have done what Ilsa/Rick did? It would've been impossible to do anything else, only I wouldn't have made a big speech about it. 15) Why or why not? "You can't go home again." - Thomas Wolfe 16) How has the movie changed your view on old movies? Not at all. 17) has this movie affected you in anyway? Nope.

    SUGGESTIONS

    Holly, I've gotten a few negative comments in the past on this board. Luckily they don't represent the majority. Don't let it make you all skittish and afraid to speak up.

    Alive or Goooone?

    Not just alive but still working.
  8. My first thought was of the musical Thousands Cheer with Gloria De Haven, June Allyson and Virginia O'Brien singing "In a Little Spanish Town". I figure I can have three at once since it's a fantastic question to begin with. And if I were a lady, I guess Robert Mitchum. Is he considered attractive by the opposite sex?

    Silent Suggestion for TCM

    When I first read the post I thought you were taking a sarcastic jab at the fact that they preempt Silent Sunday Night a dozen or so times a year.

    What did they really say?

    Susan in Bringing Up Baby. I just watched Treasure of the Sierra Madre and the line "We don't need no stinking badges!" didn't appear verbatim. In what film was that said?

    The best movie you've NEVER seen.

    How should I phrase it...Viridiana is one of the first films I can accurately affix to a point in my past. Growing up there was frequently a Disney video playing in the background or a comedy on tv I could dip in and out of. For Viridiana I decided for myself that I wanted to see it and I watched in rapt attention. It was in that boyhood phase where I was trying to differentiate myself by dressing dandyish, listening to classical music, and watching foreign films. Never lived anywhere artsy; just got lucky to have my local library have a festival of Mexican films.

    Trivia: WHO SAID...

    Dustin Hoffman. And I agree with him.

    The best movie you've NEVER seen.

    Reckless Moment, Matter of Life and Death, Sansho Dayu, Landscape in the Mist, Masculin-Feminin, Seventh Heaven. Hundreds more, but those are the most important. Viridiana was actually one of the first movies I remember seeing. I didn't know anything about it beforehand or much about cinema in general and it was a real eye-opener. I've got a full size poster on my bedroom wall to commemorate when I first saw it. I think Death Takes a Holiday is on TCM later this month. I've only seen a shoddy VHS copy, so I might have to watch it again myself.
