  1. Do You Know Where You're Going To? by Diana Ross from Mahogany next Another movie song about following your dreams.
  2. 76 Trombones by Robert Preston from The Music Man next Song in a movie about a musical instrument.
  3. My Man by Barbra Streisand from Funny Girl next A favorite opening number by the cast from a musical.
  4. Just One of Those Things by Frank Sinatra from Young At Heart next A favorite musical number that ends a movie.
  5. Sunday, September 19th Citizen Kane (1941, Orson Welles) Speaking of bores here's the classic one with one of the most incredible film productions in the history of movie-making to illustrate it. I'll take Welles' The Trial, Mabeth or Chimes At Midnight any day over this dreary assemblage, but boy, is it pretty!
  6. Northern Sky by Nick Drake from Serendipity next: Song from a movie involving 'September'.
  7. Too bad. I think it's a classic and deservedly so.
  8. They aren't his friends, simply class/study mates and perhaps future colleagues. Wagner's his only friend. It's she who gets him to begin to grow up.
  9. The movie is about his development as a young man coming into his own despite the mad race for school grades in a highly competitive atmosphere. It's about him. If it ain't please tell me what it is.
  10. Agree to disagree. He's in nearly every scene and still makes far less of an impression than Houseman. But to each his own. 🙂 But the Bottoms-Wagner scenes were obviously written not only to provide a “romantic” element but also to enlighten Bottoms to the fact that Kingsley regards the young scholar as just another talented student, no more. Wagner gets Bottoms to stand up to him in class, remove the pedestal of worship he spends most of the film erecting and begin, by the end of the film, to be his own man. That’s a lot more than merely being a member of the ensemble.
  11. Haha. One of the things I failed to notice in previous viewings (that I did last night) was Wagner's admittance that she'd have have asked Bottoms in on their first meeting if she didn't want escape the curse of going out with another of her father's students. I think he's great in Bogdanovich's The Last Picture Show but risked little to nothing (emotionally) in The Paper Chase. There's nothing on the line for him except getting the acceptance of John Houseman's character and excelling in class. He's a bore. He's far more interesting as the mysterious blackmailer in the '77 disa
  12. There aren't many, POT! This favorite is the closest I could find. 🙂 The Gentleman Is A Dope by Jo Stafford from R&H's musical, Allegro next: A song from a movie about finding a new love(r).
  13. The real genius of this film is Gordon Willis' camerawork. I'd argue that it makes half of Houseman's performance. I hope they add it to WatchTCM so I can do more marveling. 🙂 It came near the beginning of a pretty good 70s run: The Landlord 1970 Klute 1971 The Godfather 1972 Bad Company 1972 Up the Sandbox 1973 The Paper Chase 1973 The Parallax View 1974 The Godfather: Part II 1974 The Drowning Pool 1975 All the President's Men 1976 Annie Hall 1977 Interiors 1978 Comes a Horseman 1978 Manhattan 1979
  14. When You're Good To Mama by Queen Latifah from Chicago next: Musical number from a movie involving religion.
  15. The Shady Dame From Seville by Robert Preston and Company from Victor Victoria next another comic male number from a musical.
