  1. Daily Dose #16 "Funny Girl" Story of Fanny Brice aka Fania Borach born 1891 ...died 1951 ...famous for her character Baby Snooks Soon as I read Baby Snooks I instantly thought of "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane" 1962 starring Bette Davis & Joan Crawford The old lady (Davis) dressed as a has-been child star Baby Snooks singing "I Wrote A Letter to Daddy" is hard to ever forget & Fanny Brice was on radio & 45 years old when she did the Baby Snooks Show & (Wiki) said she insisted on dressing up as a child Brice in was in the Zeigfeld Follies of 1921 & l
  2. Don't Knock the Twist 1962 & Rear Window 1954 The actress Georgine Darcy played in both these movies In "Rear Window" she was "Miss Torso" & in "Don't Knock the Twist" she was Madge Albright & could she dance!!! Yes she could!!! According to (Wiki) Hitchcock told her to go to Europe & study Chekhov & she would become a star ...she thought he was kidding & did not go
  3. Show Boat movies The early version/s '29 '36 & 51 I'm mainly commenting on the "Ol' Man River " song/s Paul Robeson '36...read on (Wiki) years ago that he was a lawyer & William Wakeful '51 color version...I"m glad both of these were made it makes for a fine contrast in films & a person could write an essay on just contrasting these two versions I just wanted to note them here...gives me chills on my arms to hear these versions of "Ol Man River" If I have an opportunity to watch both films I may come back here & add in a few items The secondary ch
  4. Daily Dose #15 "My Fair Lady" 1964 Players/actors... Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn & Rex Harrison) as Higgins My she is all decked out in red velvet & gaudy jewelry...she does look like royalty from long ago In the clip she has an emotional breakdown beats her hands on the furniture & cries her heart out...then here comes silly ol' Higgins who is not prepared for this unexpected outburst...he had played w/ another persons emotions & yes Eliza does want to better herself to rise up from selling flowers on the street to becoming a shop girl selling flowers indoor
  5. Daily Dose #14 Robert Preston as actor in "Music Man" 1962 & "Victor Victoria" 1982 About seeing Preston in other movies...i have probably watched a lot of those he was in after I checked the list but cannot remember a specific character ...I do remember him in Victor Victoria...hard to forget that one!!! The reason being that I was younger then & the movie was so different than any other I had watched. I'll start my comments for this DD w/ Victor Victoria b/c I remember it so well. A sad little luv story w/a happy ending...I was glad it ended the way it did...it was so swe
  6. Daily Dose #13 "Gypsy" 1962 Firstly, Mama Rose (Rosalind Russell) performs her over the top acting style much like she did in the 1958 movie "Auntie Mame"...she is most definitely a 'stage mother' pushing her children into show biz Children will go along w/ things for awhile until they tire of it as this movie will illustrate I believe Judy Garland had a 'stage mother' who pushed her...I read that somewhere or heard it somewhere (research required on my part) Poor Herbie (Karl Malden) he can never win working w/ kids & their 'stage mothers' ...they all want thei
  7. Daily Dose #12 "An American in Paris" 1951 The main players ...Gene Kelly (Jerry Mulligan) ... Leslie Caron (Lisa Bouvier) & Nina Foch (Milo Roberts) Jerry is fast walking along a Paris street & appears to be enjoying his day greeting fellow painters along his way He is a poor GI who decided to remain in France after his service is complete & the war is over...he tries is hand at painting b/c it is Paris & looks like everyone is a painter/artist...everyone wants to go to Paris & paint...is it any wonder that nobody can sell their work? Too much of some
  8. Daily Dose #11 "Singin' in the Rain" 1952 MGM Arthur Freed (Freed unit)? Pre-dance moves...um...never heard of that...it is clear here what it means & the routine is funny...the poor professor is the joke in this clip "Moses Supposes" The big red over sized mouth & lips stressing the A ...E...I...O...U vowels sounds on the wall...luv it!!! I'll watch this again & again...the clip ... & it makes me want to re-watch the movie I like Gene Kelly although I have read in various places that when Gene was good he was very very good & when Gene was bad h
  9. Show Boat movies The early version/s '29 '36 & 51 I'm mainly commenting on the "Ol' Man River " song/s Paul Robeson '36...read on (Wiki) years ago that he was a lawyer & William Wakeful '51 color version...I"m glad both of these were made it makes for a fine contrast in films & a person could write an essay on just contrasting these two versions I just wanted to note them here...gives me chills on my arms to hear these versions of "Ol Man River" If I have an opportunity to watch both films I may come back here & add in a few items The secondary ch
  10. Daily Dose #10 "Calamity Jane" 1953 This female lead part was considered 'juicy' for any female who could get it I have read...singing...dancing...acting...showing off their talent & it's a wonder this money maker was ever made but yes it would make money & that is why the people involved tried several actor/actresses ...they wanted the money!!! Barbaby Stanwick made "Annie Get Your Gun" & then the idea for this one came along & they jumped on it Going through several actresses b/c of crazy substance abusing directors (Busby)...it is not acceptable to yell at an
  11. Daily Dose #9 The Ensemble... "Band Wagon" 1953 The players...(Fred Astaire) Tony Hunter...(Jack Buchanan) Jeffrey Cordova...(Oscar Levant) Lester Morton & (Nanette Fabray) his wife Lily Morton In the DD clip these main players are having fun persuading Tony to join them in their idea of 'putting on a show' using simple choreography so to speak,...I'm sure no dance routine is really simple...they dance close & I enjoy looking at their feet & facial expression...they are 'character' through their attire...e can see who they will be in the movie by looking at how t
  12. Daily Dose #8 Petunia & Little Joe My goodness she (Ethel Waters) Petunia is devoted to him isn't she? Gambling...but he (Eddie Anderson) Joe wins & she being a church going woman doesn't want money from gambling so she prays for him to lose. Joe tells Petunia he will buy her a new washing machine...though they have no electricity...he does this & the wringer style machine is on the porch in a scene.He was true to his word about that & he does try to be a good church going man. I like the scene where Petunia sings while gathering in the laundry. This leads to a
  13. Daily Dose #7 My comments may be jumbled up & confusing ...hope not ...here goes "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" Frank Sinatra (Ryan) & Betty Garrett (Delwyn)...this is very humorous he runs from her to get away or to not be caught by her literally & she chases him through the building & up the bleachers (Wiki) reported a stunt double being used for the slide down the railing...I guess so..can't damage Frank Sinatra!!! She (Garrett) is pretty in her spring yellow dress...she is spring...I don't know enough about dance to make comments about arm movements &am
  14. Daily Dose #6 Judy Garland Yes, the "Wizard of Oz" was the first movie I remember her in & the next would be "Meet Me in St Louis" She was talented in all areas...she could act, sing & dance Wiki reports that "Easter Parade" was the highest grossing musical of 1948 for all involved including the main actor/players...I don't know why but maybe the audience identified with the color & style of it all as a whole Wiki also reported that Gene Kelly was to be the main dancer but broke his ankle playing volleyball & so Fred Astaire, though retired was called in by
