Cinemascope's Sociopathic Spamming Thread

Recommended Posts

Well, we were talking about Marni Nixon. I've no idea about anyone's cosmetic surgery. It's not of any interest to me.

Well, it's not exactly unusual for someone who is 72 and trying to look good to have extensive plastic surgery done. God knows how many times she must have gone under the knife.

I know this belongs on a noir thread somewhere, but we were talking about plastic

surgery...

My favorite description of the film version of MFL is "stuffed and mounted" (don't remember who said it) and it always annoyed me that Hepburn had a very 1960's look to her-so did the extras in the Ascot & ballroom sequences. Alan Jay Lerner didn't like the film version and talents like Minnelli & Freed didn't think much of it either. It's stiff. My wish is that someday someone rounds up all the television appearances of the original cast (and Edward Mulhare) from the various variety shows from the late '50's. Ditto for Camelot-there's color footage of that one too. I can dream can't I?

As for JA and plastic surgery-it's a given for someone that age in the movie biz-men and women. When they don't have it done all you read is how awful they look.

And as anyone who's ever seen the original "Bedazzled" knows-The Magic Words are 'Julie Andrews'!

Well of all the movie versions of all Broadway musicals that have ever been done in Hollywood I can think of no other one besides My Fair Lady that sums up all the charm, excitement, and buoyancy that I would appreciate in a, well, Broadway musical.

 

Audrey Hepburn is awesome, much better than Julie could ever have hoped to be, Rex Harrison is magnificent, and so is the rest of the cast. I love George Cukor's direction for being a fine example of understatement, restraint and elegance.

 

If only they could still make such magnficient musicals in Hollywood!

 

As for JA, well, I used to have mixed feelings about her at best but after being subjected to the constant spamming of useless and pointless photos, the sight of her is almost enough to make me puke.

 

She only starred in two decent musicals so her influence on movie musicals is marginal at best.

Stuffed and mounted is a good description. I've always been fond of embalmed.

 

You're right, the description fits JA like a glove. :(

Johnm001:

 

Thank you so much for that recording of Julie singing When you Wish Upon a Star. Her words are so clear, every syllable is understood. Too bad she wasn't around to sing it for old Uncle Walt. He probably would have jumped through hoops to get her to sing it for him in any of his movies. She was always such a lady as a guest star on various TV variety shows, but such a wonderful clown when romping with Carol Burnett. Wouldn't it have been a treasure if Lucy had joined up and made a threesome? Absolute GOLD!

Actually it might be a bit of a good thing that she never sung in any Disney material other than MP. And as for having been good on TV, I would much have preferred she went straight to TV and stayed in TV.

 

Oh well, she only made a couple of musicals worth noting :)

I thought that the harmony, song titles, and song melodies were amazing on the song from the Carol

and Julie Carnegie special.

 

Carol, Lucy, and Julie - what a romp that would be!
