To Our Head Master, Dr. Ament and Special Guests

Recommended Posts

Thank you for the time and effort it must have taken to amassed such a course.  I am very regretful that I never knew there was a Hitchcock course because I watched all of those films before and AGAIN and never got to participate.  But I learned something about myself when I took this course.  I like musicals.  I am even MAD about some of them.  But I also am very benign on many from the 20-30s and even '40s until we got to Sinatra and Kelly.  And while I enjoy and respect so many others it is the dancing that drew me in and then the singing second.  The plots were tertiary.  I want to say for sure that leaving out "The Music That Makes Me Dance" out of the movie version of "Funny Girl" is as sad as the fact that when I listen to the Broadway soundtrack, THAT is the musical I grew up with (when my parents went to see it on Broadway) and I never could feel as excited about the movie version - it became too washed out.  It just lost all its beautiful earthiness.  And I learned that you CAN lose interest in a "star" when you see where they go in life and ruin your ideal vision of who you thought they were but their lives went a little weird or the roles they chose or were offered....In ANY case - you learn if you let your mind relent to opening up and seeing, hearing, reading the ideas of those around you. 

Again - I digress - but THANK YOU!
