  1. How might Streisand’s performance of the song “People” have felt different in the film, had she been more theatrical and expressive, perhaps even belting her song more? It would have felt that she was channeling Ethel Merman. Note the emotional transition moments in this scene: how do the two characters relate to each other as the lyrics are sung? Nicky is not overtly coming on to her--but letting her lead the way. Fanny was showing him her feelings by turning to him at times and singing directly to him but at other times sharing her feelings by singing but not directly to
  2. I love Victor/Victoria. I have probably seen this film at least 20 times if not more. I am not sure exactly what the allure of this film is for me. I think maybe it's the friendship between Victoria and Toddy that continues through the film, as well as other friendships that happen. I think Preston gives Toddy gives a view of masculinity that isn't frought with apologetic nuances for being gay in that era. Preston, in his portrayal of Professor Harold Hill, in The Music Man, is on the outside a flim flam man. But ultimately his character, through Preston's singing and acting and dancing abili
  3. I have yet to get an email from TCM with the "Now Playing" guide....I have subscribed a lot of times, with different emails, with different browsers. NOTHING. I have contacted TCM with my problem. NOTHING. Really frustrating.
  4. For actresses: Robin Wright, Kim Basinger (for the blondes). Both actresses can be emotional, icy, cool and act in both comedies and dramas. Robin Wright in her current role in House of Cards, shows her range and Kim Basinger's role in L.A. Confidential, was the classic blonde but with depth. For actors: Like others, I agree that Tom Hanks is the Jimmy Stewart of today and I see George Clooney as the Cary Grant type. But I would suggest also that Anthony Hopkins can play the smooth evil character (like the husband in Dial M for Murder), John Cusack I can see as the every man type characte
  5. "The Lady Vanishes" was remade in 2013 for PBS's Masterpiece Mystery series. I watched this and loved it. When I read it was a remake of a Hitchcock film, I then saw the original. Although the PBS remake was good on its own---if you compare it to the original, well, I think the original is far superior. What I liked about both pieces was the starting at one point and then going through the 'tunnel' of a storyline into something that you never would have thought would happen when you start watching the films. Hitchcock brought in other storylines that added interest to the film. The PBS remake
  6. Very sad to hear of the passing of Robert Osborne. I am glad to have been able to 'spend' many years with him enjoying classic films.
