DAILY DOSE OF DELIGHT #16 (From FUNNY GIRL) in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALS Posted June 28, 2018 Her performance might have seemed unrealistic and over the top if she had been louder and more expressive. Her ability to stay contained and softer in her singing makes it more real and has more emotional depth. It’s interesting that the song starts with her always moving away from him and keeping a distance. She is framed in the staircase as he watches from the side. She is very involved in her emotions but he is distant and has a bemused expression. She is singing with her back turned to the camera and turning to sing over her shoulder. She is then set above Nicky on the stairs and separated from him by the railings. The use of the railings to show them each trapped in their own world is an interesting choice.
