DAILY DOSE OF DELIGHT #2 (From Rose Marie) in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALS Posted June 5, 2018 1.In the first scene it is obvious that they are very attracted to one another. Eddy/McDonald make a wonderful pair, and you can see the attraction in both scenes. They are fighting it in the canoe, and while she is in the little dive singing, you can see the flirtatious eyes and smiles coming from both of them. 2.Eddy/McDonald make a wonderful pair. Like Astaire/Rodgers, they are a match made in heaven. I really like that about films from that era; once a duo was formed, they stuck together through so many films. You will notice this with Dick Powell, Ruby Keeler and Joan Blondell. You will also see it in the Road To movies as well. Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour worked great together. But to get back on subject- they make a wonderful duo through-out all of their movies. 3.The theme is they resist one another in the beginning, but by the end, they are in love. During the movie you will see the hesitation and resistance to be with one another, and at times you will see the woman trying her absolute hardest to not fall for the gentleman, but in the end she always does. I do love that Hollywood adopted a code, as it keeps the movies classic and timeless. I wish that movies these days followed such codes and remained in that same timeless state.
