  1. I should have mentioned I don’t have access to OnDemand or a DVR so I can only watch what TCM broadcasts, when they broadcast it. Over all, I’ve loved watching, learning and discussing these great musicals.
  2. Im a big fan of Fred Astaire and Petula Clark so I’m always up for seeing this movie. There’s a couple places the movie gets a little slow but over all it’s a great fantasy.
  3. I have loved every moment of this course but I do have one complaint. Some of the movies that have been discussed have been aired at horrible times to be able to watch. Some movies have been aired after midnight and some have started at 5am. I’m lucky to be able to watch all the movies from morning till midnight but I have to sleep sometime and feel some of the movies could have been aired on Wednesday afternoon or evening especially this last week. I’m lucky that I’ve seen most of the movies ( some many times) but the few I’ve never seen I would like to be able to watch.
  4. When Cohen is climbing the stairs, I notice he is passing by pictures of earlier Presidents, possibly ones who served as President during his lifetime. The Butler tells Cohen he saw him during an earlier President’s term in office and mentions the song It’s a Grand Old Flag and how it’s still a meaningful song. When Cohen enters the Oval Office, the President is seated and greets Cohen as a friend. Cohen remarks he is a bit nervous but the President reassures him by saying that they understand each other. I notice the room is softly lit and has a homey feel. There are several model ships and paintings of ships. The desk reminds me of someone who has spent hours sitting at it, with a clock, an ashtray, and some papers. Cohen and the President begin talking as old friends might. Cohen begins talking about his birth on the 4th of July. The scene changes to Cohen’s Father on stage, finishing a song and dance. He rushes off stage when finished, refusing to take a bow, so he could rush to his wife, who is in labor with their first child. There aware many patriotic clues, from the Butler mentioning It’s a Grand Old Flag to the President mentioning how the Irish-Americans wear their country’s pride and all the flags during the parade.
