1-Do you agree that the clip exhibits a brighter perspective of life than might be realistic? Why or why not?
I believe it does show a brighter perspective. Just from the first minute, when Ziegfeld gives a “tip” like no big deal, and don’t forget about the doorman saying “5 pounds”? (which there is no need for). Things like these set the tone of the clip. The theatre, the audience, the orchids, everything screams money, and for the time the movie was release, Money was in everybody’s mind and wish list. Great way to immerse in a fantasy, forgetting reality for a little while.
