About Lanning

  • Rank
  1. My sister, for some odd and unspoken reason, despises Astaire and Rogers. So, she was not happy to hear that I had bought a boxset of all of their movies. I still don't know her reason.
  2. Oh yeah, gotta love them both, one as singer, one as dancer -- although I believe it was Irving Berlin who said there was no better singer to introduce his new songs than Astaire, that Astaire had a natural feel for and understanding of anything Berlin or any other composer wrote. They were both great actors too. They had it all.
  3. Whenever I watch Holiday Inn, I wonder about Astaire, his having to settle for his second choice in terms of love.
  4. Aloha. My name is Lanning Lee. Sorry I'm so late to the party. Just watched the video for Week One. I was struck by the comment that it's always the woman who has to choose between love and career. This being for the most part true, then Robert Preston plays a kind of groundbreaking role when he chooses love over "career" in The Music Man.
