  1. 1. Do you agree that the clip exhibits a brighter perspective of life than might be realistic? Why or why not? Yes, I agree that the clip exhibits a brighter perspective. During the depression I doubt that most people were going to the theatre or dropping 5 pound notes to the doorman. 2. What themes or approaches might you anticipate from this clip in other Depression era musicals? I believe the theme might be about power. Who has it, how can they keep it. 3. Since this is a musical that was made after the motion picture code was enforced, how might you imagine it might have been filmed or scripted differently if it had been pre-code? Give specific examples. This one is a tough one. I'm not sure.
  2. Wow! I agree! I found her dancing to be halting-for lack of a better word. It seemed like she was trying to hard to impress. I love the movie 42nd street but it is difficult to watch her clomp through some of her dancing.
  3. I agree with you on the Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy statement. I have tried several times to get through one of their movies. I just can't do it. It's awful.
  4. Oh yes! Seven Brides is one of the best movies, ever! I love the Technicolor of the costumes and the dancing is amazing! You will love it!
  5. I am 55 and love the musicals. The ones that always draw me back are Singin in the Rain, Seven Brides for seven Brothers and yes---42nd street! These movies are timeless to me.
  6. Watching this right now on TCM. All I can say is Wow! That is some road rage in 1928!
  7. Keaton was a genius and I agree with you! Sybil was an amazing actress to go through everything she did within those scenes. Did she do her own stunts as well?
  8. I enjoy watching these films because you have to really watch and be mindful of what is going on around the characters. My children, now all adults, were introduced to these films when they were young. They also enjoy them. Hopefully, through this course I will be able to attain even more understanding of all the nuances of these films.
  9. Hello! My name is Lisa and I am from Ohio. First time in a class like this. Really looking forward to learning about slapstick comedy.
