  1. 1. Minnelli films this scene with the utmost intimacy and devotion. He uses closeups with the camera between Petunia at Joe's bedside and Joe's fluttering eyelids when he hears the sound of her voice. We also see the Angel nodding in agreement of Petunia's thankfulness to God and to singing of her undying love. She is filled with joy at his recovery and is excited and exuberant in taking care of Joe and the household chores. She feels she has been given a second chance to make him happy and comfortable. 2. I think if she was singing to her child instead of her husband the scene wo
  2. 1. Wizard of Oz was of course my first and one of my top 5 Favorite Judy Garland movies: 1. Meet Me In St. Louis 2. Wizard of Oz 3. The Harvey Girls 4. The Pirate 5. The Clock I loved the way she started out an innocent, sweet farm girl, that could also stand up for her self during the Mrs. Gulch/Toto confrontational scene. She showed a range of typical teenage emotions which developed into a young woman's concerns during her travels to Oz and back home again. Judy also showed her enormous talent and confidence expertly performing along side the to
  3. 1. This first scene promotes patriotism as the viewer climbs up the staircase with Cohan and the butler while observing all the president's portraits hanging on the wall. The viewer gets to listen to the men's conversation ,as they discuss the patriotic performances of the past with Cohan and his family. Next inside the President's office, Cohan has a flag pin on his lapel, an American flag in the back corner is seen, and we hear patriotic marches played as background music while F.D.R. and Cohan also reminisce about past American parades and patriotic shows. 2. F.D.R. states to Coha
  4. While watching this clip, I gained some insight to the Lubitsch touch and the foreshadowing of what is to come from this entertaining and sexually charged film. He suggestively uses the garters in a close up numerous times , which is very Pre Code . This is not only evidence of Maurice's philandering, but of the woman's strong sexuality, and attractiveness as we are allowed to view these items AND her upper thighs with in the first three minutes of the scene! I feel these Depression-Era films will certainly transfer the average person to a world where the privileged classes enjoy their
  5. 1. I think both actors are displaying very appropriate behavior traits for this time period of the Film Code era. They are being polite, coy and slightly flirtatious in their speech and mannerisms. While sitting in the canoe, MacDonald can't even look Eddy in the eye for too long, so she will not give him the impression of being TOO ATTENTIVE and INTERESTED in him! 2. I have never seen any of the MacDonald-Eddy movies before, although I knew of their popularity on the screen as a couple and of their impressive vocal talents. 3. These clips demonstrate to me that the man will alway
  6. 1. I agree that the movies were transporting the viewers from the hard ships of the times, to a much happier, whimsical reality. Who wouldn't want to forget their troubles and "Come on Get Happy"? 2. I think the women were always viewed as a pretty accessory on a gentleman's arm and not given much consideration accept to be attractive, entertaining and amusing. People in films at this time were not expected to show their truest, deepest feelings, and that everything would turn OK in the end for everybody. 3. I think in a Pre-code version, Held's costumes would be more suggestive
