Cinemascope's Sociopathic Spamming Thread

302 posts in this topic

Well, you know, the sing-a-long isn't exactly like a theatrical production.

 

It's more like doing The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but with other movies, in this case Sound of Music. People have a great time and sing and dress up and stuff.

Apart from The Sound of Music, I've always felt that there were similarities to Darling Lili, SOB (the movie within a movie sequence), and Victor/VIctoria,

not only in the art direction, but also in the lyric style of songs.

One of my favorite songs is " Le Jazz Hot " from V/V, and also "Whistling Away

the Dark" from Darling Lili.

What do you think?

Well, musically, they're written by the same composer, Henry Mancini. I love all the songs, in both scores. I think Blake films "Whistling Away the Dark", from DL and "Crazy World", from V/V, in the same manner. Don't see S.O.B. (my favorite of Blake's comedies) in either of those two, though. Explain what you mean in more detail, if you can. Thanks.

"Someday.." is so evocative of 20's pieces. Lovely, hopeful, yet peaceful

cadences...thanks for the link.

I saw Hay Fever with Judy Dench this summer in the UK.

 

DL is much like SOB in the first sequence of the movie within

a movie sequence - Julie alone on a stage with props,

then in the more updated SOB MWAM scenario, it sort of

parallels V/V in the second, more risque and avante garde.

 

Does that make any sense? :)
