BenferBJ replied to Karen Louise's topic in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALSI agree, Karen Louise. I didn't know about these courses until the current one on musicals. But, I'd also love to take the courses on Hitchcock and slapstick, and my brother wants to do the film noir course. Obviously the courses were designed to be highly interactive, which probably presents a problem. But, I'd love to do them as self-directed experiences.
What a challenging question! A favorite? I cannot narrow it down, but if it has Fred Astaire, I'm glued to the screen. It's not just his dancing or his elegant, seemingly effortless style. It's his singing, the phrasing and timing.
