  1. Astaire and Rogers. Nothing better. They are my favorite couple and it does not get old to watch them. This scene is unusual in the fact that they have Ginger Rogers wearing masculine clothing. It is a tell that she is going to demand that she been seen as an equal. She follows through by showing Fred Astaire that she can match him step for step. And she does, quite easily. This film is distinguishable because the female role is becoming more progressive and the love matches are more equal. As we move closer to WWII, women's roles outside of the home are expanding and so is their deman
  2. Who doesn't love Maurice Chevalier? His subtlety is his best comedic tool. I enjoy the french language as a misdirect for you to focus on the actors in the scene. The use of the fake gun sound seems to be the tell that all is not what it seems and in the end, her husband isn't capable enough to take care of her. As always, we are looking at a luxurious apartment, expensive clothes and lofty attitudes. This is escapism at its finest.
  3. I love the video lecture and I really love the Daily Doses! What great medicine. I love the light banter. The sexual tension is very light, but still palpable. This is my first exposure to Nelson Eddy, but after seeing this clips, this is on my watch list! As always, Code movies are very "PG" Even the ladies of the night are covered from head to toe! I always expect to see long dresses, very little touching and lots in innuendo!
  4. After watching pre-code, I can only imagine that Ms. Held might be dressed a little more costume. There certainly is an overall softening of the times, both in language, costume, lighting, music and dialogue.
