  1. Chuck V. - Apologies that I didn't recognize the joke. Joking is always difficult (for me) to tell with just writing (no inflection of your voice). I guess I really do need sound! lol Again, the clip is totally awesome; even more awesome knowing that it is a "recent" discovery. Hopefully, people will continue to find lost treasures!
  2. I love that movie! My grandfather and I went to see it in the theatre...he liked Fred, I liked Gene! We had a blast! Hadn't seen nor heard of that event! Totally cool! Thanks for posting it!
  3. Chuck V. - That is a very cool clip; however, I wouldn't call that a musical as it doesn't have a storyline, plot, etc.; it is just as its title suggests, "Experimental Sound Film." Thanks for sharing!
  4. Interesting how everyone has learned different things. I have always been taught that The Jazz Singer was the first full-length musical. I have the silent Don Juan (1926) and no one talks; therefore, The Jazz Singer IS the first "talkie," even though there isn't sound talking through the entire movie; however, I believe it to be the first musical too as the songs/singing were in sound. Interestingly, MGM's Broadway Melody of 1929 was advertised as the "All-Talking, All-Singing, All-Dancing" film.
  5. Hello everyone! Enrolled in the TCM’s Mad about Musicals; so far, so fun! We’re on the first night of watching movies, and Dr. Ament states that Broadway Melody of 1929 is the “first” musical on film; it is true that it was MGM’s first musical; but, don’t believe that it was the first since The Jazz Singer appeared two years earlier. Yes, The Jazz Singer wasn’t completely “all-talkie,” but it was completely “all-singing." Even Broadway Melody of 1929 wasn’t a completely “silent-movie-free” movie as it used title cards to carry the story. Possibly, people are trying to downp
  6. 1. What do you notice about the interaction between the characters in these two scenes? Please give specific examples. Clip 1: Light touch of humor/sarcasm Very comfortable with each other It ends with her being “indignant” with his remark Clip 2: No real “interaction,” just “glancing” at each other He shows interest, caring, concern. She tries to ignore seeing him, she’s embarrassed, then ends indignant, as in the first clip. 2. If you have seen either or both of these actors in other films or television shows, please share your percepti
  7. 1) Do you agree that the clip exhibits a brighter perspective of life than might be realistic? Why or why not? - Respectively, I disagree. The Great Ziegfeld is a "biopic" of the man behind The Ziegfeld Follies during the early 1900’s (think roaring 20’s). The movie represented a very affluent time, especially for those in entertainment—$500, $1000, $5,000, and even $10,000 bills were in use. Generally speaking, the uber-wealthy and/or those of high social status live a very unrealistic life (search: Hearst Zoo or Neverland) as well as exhibit “a brighter perspective of
