  1. This isn’t the first movie I’ve seen that’s been restored this way. It would be nice if there was a disclaimer of some sort before the movie airs though. I learned about the restoration using stills because I’ve gotten into the habit of going to IMDB on my tablet to learn the trivia. Most of the lost footage for Star is Born was found but not all of it so stills were used.

  2. I’ve never see the 1936 version but after taking this class I think I’d like to give it a shot. The 1951 movie has never been one of my favorites even though I adore Howard Keel. In general I prefer my musicals to be more entertaining than tackling serious subjects. However, if it s going to be serious, then it should be done properly, as West Side Story does. MGM’s “glossing” of the underlying stories hits a jarring note for me.

  3. I knew her best as the housekeeper on McMillan & Wife. I’ve always loved her & agree she stole the show until the final number by Tommy Dix. What a voice!  The course spotlights certain movies which are discussed in the lecture notes, videos, etc. However I’d love to see some sort of blurb on why each of the movies was chosen for inclusion.  While Best Foot Forward was ok, I definitely wondered why it would be chosen for this course.
