Today's Daily Dose is an early scene from Notorious (1946). Watch the scene over at the Canvas course site, and come back here to share your insights with a special focus on the film's two biggest stars, Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman. As it is Noir Crossover Week, you can also discuss what these two stars contribute to the noir style in what has come to be recognized as a classic film noir. Here are three questions to get you started: What Hitchcock "touches" do you see in this early scene from the movie? How does Hitchcock choose to light, frame, and photograph his two stars in this scene? What are some of the contrasts that Hitchcock trying to set up between these two characters through art direction, costume, and cinematography? Based on this scene (or the entire film if you have seen it already), reflect on the casting of Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman. Does this scene conform to or challenge their well-known star personas?
To kick off the Halloween Special, I reviewed the 1941 version of Jekyll and Hyde...It doesn't even come close to the 1931 version with Fredric March! Feel free to recommend some creepy classics to me, guys!
I had to watch this movie at least twice before I got the whole idea of the picture in my mind. But OH when I did, it has become my all time favorite movie! I can watch it every day and not get tired of it! The chemistry between Ingrid and Gary is amazing, and the story line is unlike anything either of them has ever done! Truly this is unlike any other movie I have ever seen, and the cast and script are so unusual.... The script lets Gary and Ingrid be real, and "talk", "sing", and make love (so to say)- so life like. There has not been another movie that allows the characters be REAL. You just have to watch to understand..... I can't understand why it is not more popular than it is... Any one else feel as I do?
While I was waiting for The Ten Commandments to download last night, I whiled away the time watching Casablanca again. I have seen this movie countless times, and for me, it was the film that motivated me into being the movie lover I am today. There is a magic about this story and its production that always grips me. Last night's viewing reminds me that this story takes me to foreign shores, yet the production never leaves Burbank, CA. Well, maybe there's a scene at the Van Nuys airport, but again, not that far. I still buy it. It is such masterful production design, it hooks me everytime, even when fully aware of the actual shooting locales. Am I the only one who feels like this?
