  1. On May 9, 1964, Louis Armstrong and Hello Dolly knocked the Beatles out of first place, where they had been since February 1. The Dave Clark Five, although a terrific group, didn't have a number one hit in the US or Canada until 1965, although they did in the UK.
  2. And to decide which films are worth preserving, too. (Would you pay thousands of dollars to preserve, say, Waterworld?)
  3. I've been thinking lately about how bad the Camelot movie was. Dark, somber, bad singing, unlikable actors, just a terrible, unwatchable flop. When I was a pre-teen, we had the Camelot Broadway LP and I played it hundreds of times. I remember Camelot as being joyful and imagined the stage musical to be light and lovely. So yesterday, I downloaded the original Broadway recording on iTunes and listened to it for the first time in over 50 years. It was as great as I remember. One number that stands out is Robert Goulet, in his wonderful baritone, singing "C'est Moi". "C'est moi! C'est
  4. My favorite: Kim Novak's wardrobe in Bell, Book, and Candle.
  5. Steve thought and acted for the both of them.
  6. Glad to see The Getaway on the list. They're always showing the awful modern version with Alec Baldwin.
  7. Funny you should bring up this film. Last night, on the Decades cable channel, they showed an episode of the Dick Cavett show from 1972 with Peter Bogdanovich, Frank Capra, Robert Altman, and Mel Brooks. This was 5 years after the release of The Producers, in 1967. They showed a clip of it, and Cavett acted sort of embarrassed about showing a comedy about Nazis. Brooks was hilarious. And his masterpiece, Young Frankenstein, was yet to come.
  8. More-- Just Dropped In (to see what condition my condition is in); The Theme From Branded (Scorned as the one who ran, what can you do when you're branded and you know you're a man)
  9. Being exposed to talent I hadn't know much about: Michael Kidd, Doug Shearer, Etta Moten in Goldiggers 1933, singing Remember My Forgotten Man. Realizing that Bye Bye Birdie would have been nothing without Ann-Margret. Reading some great comments by fellow students, which made me think of things in other ways.
  10. I remember the first time I heard the Beatles' music: sitting in my mother's kitchen in January 1964 doing my home work, the transistor radio playing "She Loves You" and I was hooked. Saw Hard Day's Night when it came out among a mob of teenage screaming girls. Not being much of a screamer myself, I was a little put off because I couldn't hear the film. Now, almost 55 years later, I'm addicted to the Beatles channel on Sirius XM. There are some songs that I've actually never heard until recently, like Hey Bull Dog. Makes it new every day.
  11. I'll bet there are films out there with no music at all. Anybody know?
  12. This was discussed in the 6/28 lecture, so I'll bite. Here are the ones I can think of off the top of my head. (I've excluded concert films and musical bios.) There are surely a bunch I have missed: 1. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid 2. The Graduate 3. Forrest Gump 4. A Mighty Wind (might even be considered a musical) 5. Saturday Night Fever 6. American Graffiti 7. Pulp Fiction 8. Easy Rider 9. Shaft 10. O Brother Where Art Thou
