  1. 1.What was the first Judy Garland film you recall watching? What was your impression of her? My 1st movie of Judy Garland was The Wizard of OZ. My impression of her was OMG the young lady has one heck of a voice. 2.How do you view her differently after viewing these clips than you might have viewed her previously? After viewing the clips I know see the comic side of her. 3. What films in her later career come to mind as examples of her increasing ability to capture an audience's imagination as a storyteller when she sings a lyric? Meet me in St Louis is one of the one
  2. I have a couple of musicals movies that I have seen more then once my ultimate favorite is Signing in the Rain. I love watching this movie from start to finish.
  3. 1. Based on the opening sequence alone, what do you feel you already know about Marnie as a character? In what ways does Hitchcock visually reveal her character through her interaction with objects She a con artist that likes to steal money from safes, shes even carring a lock pickyng device. Marnie is also on the run she getting all her own belongings and discarding them putting all her new belongs into a new suitscase. THe washing of hair repesent to be that Marnie has more then one personality. 2. How does Hitchcock use Bernard Herrmann's score in this scene? It's a more sadder score mak
  4. 1.In what ways does this opening scene seem more appropriate to a romantic comedy than a “horror of the apocalypse” film? What do we learn about Melanie (Tippi Hedren) and Mitch (Rod Taylor) in this scene? It's a romantic comedy. Melanie is very interested in Mitch who is very good looking. She portrays as the pet shop employee just to flirt with him. 2.How does Hitchcock use sound design in this opening sequence? For example, how are the sounds of birds used to create a particular mood and atmosphere? The birds sounds and visual effect in the opening scene is kinda eerie and creepy to look
  5. 1.Psycho opens with title design by Saul Bass and music by Bernard Herrmann. This is their third collaboration for Hitchcock, including Vertigoand North by Northwest. How does the graphic design and the score introduce the main themes of this film? These two knew very well what works! This has to be one of my favorite scores of all of hitchcock movies. The graphic to me kinda remind me of knives and the score just the suspence and creepiness it add to it. 2. As the titles end, we have three shots of Phoenix, Arizona, and a very specific day, date, and time: “FRIDAY, DECEMBER THE ELEVENTH” a
  6. 1.Even at the level of the dialogue, this film is playing with the idea that two Hollywood stars are flirting with each other (e.g. the line, "I look vaguely familiar.") How does our pre-existing knowledge of these stars function to create meaning in this scene. Cary and Eva are two very classy actors. There's a lot of sexual attraction toward each other and that makes this scene so HOT!!!! 2. There is minimal action in this scene, so any deviation from the overall pattern of focusing on the faces of the two leads will have increased significance. In that sense, discuss how Hitchcock uses
  7. 1 Describe what you think this film will be about simply from the sounds and images in these opening credits. Even if you have seen the film, try to focus on these sounds and images themselves and “the story” (or if not "the story," the mood and atmosphere they are establishing) that this sequence is communicating to the audience. The whole mood with the images and music tell the story that its about a women how is trying to put us under her spell. 2 In your own estimation, what is the single most powerful image in this title sequence? Defend your answer. I think the most powerful single i
