I can't resist getting all pedantic when we do this.Maybe it's because it gets me thinking about why.

- Why is the name "Johnny" so popular in film titles, why the number 7 ?

 

Probably stating the obvious here, but of all numbers, *7* resonates with connotations of magic, of power; it's always been a significant number in myth and folk lore. Along with 9, I suppose.

 

Also it's a prime number, which makes it special (ever see *The Music of Chance* ? )

 

In folklore, the seventh son of a seventh son is supposed to have special powers, amongst them to be able to understand the language of animals and birds. Might be an interesting subject for a film...

There was a Twilight Zone episode about the seventh son of a seventh son...I can't remember what it was about, but it had the usual Rod Serling twist.

 

I think you're right...there are reasons why some words or phrases are such a part of our culture.

 

I had been thinking of doing a thread about movies with LOVE in the title...but it would probably be several hundred titles, if not more.

The Seven Minutes, based on the book by Irving Wallace. I've seen the movie and read the book. It's about a pornography trial, with an oddball cast - Yvonne DeCarlo as a politician/writer, Harold J. Stone as a judge, Phil Carey as a prosecutor. I will leave it to your imagination to figure out what the seven minutes means.

Yup!

 

I could easily start a thread on Yvonne DeCarlo. For a long time, the only film of hers I had seen was MCCLINTOCK, and that's a supporting role. And all my other thought associations about her centered around The Munsters. LOL

 

But I watched her in CALAMITY JANE & SAM BASS, and gosh, is she good in it! She's just the right combination of tomboyishness and femininity.

 

I think she has a small part in BRUTE FORCE which I vaguely recall.

 

Encore Westerns has BLACK BART coming up soon...and on Netflix I have ordered BAND OF ANGELS which she did with Clark Gable. And I really want to see CRISS CROSS and DEATH OF A SCOUNDREL.

 

Her film career lasted from 1941 to 1993.

Actually, Yvonne DeCarlo was born in 1922, which would put her in her early 30s in the early 1950s. I just liked the idea of her being 49, for the reasons listed on my post.

 

I like this actress too -- not sure what she has to do with the number 7, though. Maybe she's lucky for some people, like the number 7.

Yvonne De Carlo (The Munsters) and Carolyn Jones (The Addams Family) are very interesting. They both had solid acting credits but we think of them as unknowns before their television series made them famous.

 

Seven has always been important number in human consciousness. There are many theories why. It is dramatic number because it is beyond common grasp. Human minds want to fit things into sets with up to six elements. Seventh item seems special because it is set + one.

 

Would A Week in Spring be as dramatic as Seven Days in May ? Does A Little More Than Half a Dozen Archaic Warriors roll off your tongue as easily as Seven Samuri ?
