  1. 1. What do you notice about the interaction between the characters in these two scenes? Please give specific examples. There is a lot of interaction between the two stars in the first scene, and The Sgt does his best against the competition. I love his line, "I'm not an Italian but as for the singing..."" In the second clip, there are many characters interacting. The saloon patrons pay no attention to Marie at all. The two guys stand in front of her while she sings.

If the film were made pre-code I think the costumes would be more scanty and the dialog a bit more suggestive. The true story of Ziegfeld and Anna was probably too much to portray after code enforcement.

  5. I like Yankee Doodle Dandy. After watching Cagney as a tough guy all the time, I love to see him sing and dance, It's such a delightful change!
