  1. I'm just a lowly tenor in the chorus. We don't audition for specific parts, and although this is a highly profession production with a healthy six-figure budget, the chorus for the most part is composed of volunteers. We do it for the love of the music and for the opportunity to create music with musicians way out of our league (at least that's my view of the situation). So, on the one hand, they're not paying me enough to radically alter my appearance, but I'm having too much fun to raise a big stink. I just thought a few well-chosen examples everyone would immediate recognize would possibly save the day. To that end, I'm astounded as always by the depth of knowledge of the participants in this message board. Thanks to all for what are some really good suggestions.
  2. This may seen like a crazy (albeit fun) question but there?s a good reason for it, as I?ll explain shortly. The question is: what characters played by name actors appeared with facial hair in movies set in the 1950s? The only one I?ve come up with so far is Charlton Heston in Touch of Evil (by Orson Wells). The actors don?t have to play good guys, or even lead characters. And Groucho doesn?t count. I?m in a stage production of Romeo and Juliet (the opera by Gounod), which is to be set in the 1950s. The director says (mostly correctly) that clean-shaven faces were all that you ever saw during that time. I?m looking for some examples to show that the claim is not 100% true. I don?t want to shave my mustache. Thanks for any examples you can come up with.
  3. I checked the (very brief) plot synopsis on imdb.com. That doesn't sound like the one I'm looking for. It does, however, sound like one I'd love to see sometime. Thanks.
  4. I would be ecstatic if TCM would underwrite a new season of Mystery Science Theater. Those who never saw this program will no doubt think this an odd choice. Many of those who have, however, will share the opinion of critic Richard Corliss, who called it a national treasure. This show was not about science fiction, it was about movies . . . really, really bad movies. And it wasn't a show for geeky adolescents. Intelligence and a liberal education were prerequisites for "getting it".
  5. No, I can't recall anything except the rather amazing combination of the two opera chestnuts. This could have been N. Eddy / G. MacDonald, but I really have no idea other than they were fairly legitimate opera singers. Also, the camp where the action took place *may* have been Interlochen, but I'm not even sure about that. Thanks for the other title, by the way.
  6. A B&W musical light comedy from 30s, 40s, maybe 50s. The setting is a summer music camp with quite talented young musicians. In a clamactic scene, the lead tenor and his following march in singing the well know Toreador song from Carmen. The lead soprano marches in with her troop singing a well-known chorus from the opera Faust. Somehow it all works in a most delightful way. Thanks in advance if you can identify this one. Also, how about the title of a B&W bio. of Fredrick Chopin? Again, thanks in advance.
