  1. What do you notice about the Lubitsch touch? How do the props, the dialogue, and the staging help you understand the character of Alfred (Maurice Chevalier)? the close ups to the garter, the skirt being lifted, you give for a fact the character is a "player" and in this case on of his lovers is mad at him for being cheated. Based on this scene, what are some of the things you notice about the scene’s use of sound? Describe a specific sound or line of dialogue you hear and what you think it adds to the scene’s effectiveness. The sound in general of the whole scene is surreal, looks a like a silent film with selective audio, only certain things have sound, there are no sound for most of the effects only sound for the voices, and the most distinguishable effect is the sond of the revolver gun, definitely gives the scene extra impact. What themes or approaches might you anticipate from this clip in other Depression-era musicals? The lubitsch touch would be a lot less if it was filmed after the code, this makes the movie have a more sexual comical tone than the post code movies.
  2. What do you notice about the interaction between the characters in these two scenes? Please give specific examples. It depicts the classical old hollywood relationship between a male and a female, I mean where the man it's and important character in the movie and the woman usually pretended not to be interested on his appeal or his fame, and we can see the approaches of the male character without giving away that he really likes her or sacrificing his looks on society. If you have seen either or both of these actors in other films or television shows, please share your perceptions about them. Nope, first time, that's the reason i signed in the class I really like classical films and I wanted to expand my knowledge on them. What do these clips tell you about the male/female relationships as they are depicted in the films during this era? What norms might you expect are supported under the Hollywood Film Code? I am assuming relationships needed to be depicted as pure love, taking the sexual part out of the equation, they needed show the audience of deeply in love they are to each other and that creates a lot of the comical situations in most of the movies, even nowadays.
