  1. Hi all! I'm looking for members in the Winchester, VA area that might be interested in starting a local chapter. If anyone is interested or knows someone who might be interested, please let me know. Let's movie! Kat
  2. What do you notice about the Lubitsch touch? How do the props, the dialogue, and the staging help you understand the character of Alfred (Maurice Chevalier)? The Lubitsch touch - "A subtle and souffle-like blend of sexy humor and sly visual wit." – Roger Fristoe Indeed! Alfred appears to be a player… a man who somehow consistently manages to find himself roped into scandal. I believe it is safe to assume (although, assumptions are as innocent and inoffensive as post-code provisions) that the current jealous lady is not his first rodeo romp, and she won’t be his last. His ever-growing collection of bitsy pistols tells us that. And hey, what does a drawer full of tiny revolvers say about a man anyway? Ah yes, that he loves ladies with dainty hands. Alfred is a man who engages in serial affairs. Is he a nefarious serial affair-ist from Sylvania? Perhaps. But the careful placement of certain objects paired with the obvious homing in lead me to believe the following adjectives, nouns, and descriptive phrases about him: He is… Suave Debonair Sophisticated Charming Conniving Non-violent (a lover… and possibly a fighter, but not a killer) Scheming Avoidant (when it comes to sincere, true, deep emotion) Careless Confident Bold Afraid to commit And I think I read somewhere "lothario" ... yes, lothario (noun) applies. Also, can we all just take a moment to appreciate that word? Respect. :) I don't know. I've rambled toward a pointless digression. I am thoroughly enjoying this class, and I'll end it there.
