  1. Love Love Love!! This always makes me want to get up and do the dance around the room.
  2. I adore Danny Kaye! This is my favorite musical number from Merry Andrew. There was a small part of it in the video posted above. I dare you not to dance in your seat while you watch it. ?
  3. I watched that last night also. I adore that movie! My favorite part is when he climbs up to her room after she saves his life (swoon). ? Yes, Men in Tights is Mel Brooks and in a totally different category, so it's a great watch when I'm in a silly mood.
  4. TIGHT tights! I could start quoting lines from that movie, but then I'd never stop. LOL
  5. I'm joining the Seven Brides Dislike Club too (although I'm really sure there is a better name for it). I love Howard Keel and Jane Powell and Russ Tamblyn, but that movie did absolutely nothing for me. To each his own, though! I've been impressed so far at how friendly people have been on these boards. It's very refreshing (unless I've missed some unpleasantness - in that case, don't tell me).
  6. Like many have commented, I was absolutely terrified of the witch and the flying monkeys as a little girl. They used to give me nightmares! That didn't stop me from watching, though. Favorite Part: Bert Lahr's tail
  7. I have met people who will refuse to watch a movie because it is in black and white. They are seriously missing out! Some friends and I used to have a movie club, and we would get together every few months at someone's house to eat, visit, and watch a movie. Whoever was hosting was the one to choose what movie we would watch. I was determined to make a point, so I chose "The Ghost and Mrs Muir." They loved it, of course, and I had a nice "I told you so" moment.
  8. I love watching Eleanor Powell dance. Her dancing is more geared to a long musical number, like in Born to Dance. I didn't get bored watching her. Comparing her to Ruby Keeler feels a bit like apples and oranges. A lot changed in Hollywood between 1933 and 1936. Keeler is more of a hoofer, as has been said. I also thought of James Cagney while I was watching her clip in the notes. Yes, her dancing is more "heavy," but I still found it charming in its own way. It isn't as polished as Powell, but it is still interesting to watch. That being said, I don't think I would want to wa
  9. I just saw that in Born to Dance, Eleanor Powell's singing was dubbed but Jimmy Stewart's wasn't. Interesting...
  10. 1. 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 breaking of the fourth wall sets a lighthearted tone from the beginning. At first I thought that the lady was his wife or girlfriend, and the extra garter showed that he is a philanderer. Then there is a switch in perspective as he reveals it is her husband at the door! I can see the influence of silent films in the way that important objects, such as the gun and garter, are brought to the forefront through closeups. Also
  11. Clark Gable singing in Idiot's Delight was a hoot! I'm also glad he stuck to drama, but what a gift to the universe that was. As for Jimmy, his singing is most unfortunate, but if he sang to me I would not complain one bit!
  12. I have heard that also. If the accounts I've heard of Mayer are true, I would believe he could say something like that.
  13. 1. What do you notice about the interaction between the characters in these two scenes? Please give specific examples. The clips are not actually in the order that they appear in the movie. The second clip occurs before the first one. The second one is where Bruce and Marie see each other for the first time. That scene used to always make me uncomfortable because I was embarrassed for her. As I got older, however, I realized how funny Jeanette was so I appreciated it more. Marie is so used to everyone walking on eggshells around her, it is fun to see her eyes opened to the fact tha
