Well, you've read the notes, you've taken note of the notes and now it is time to post your very own actual posts all the livelong day.  And remember, no pithy remarks from the errant and truant about how errant and truant they were.  Otherwise, it shall be the wrath of cohen, I tell you true.

LOL.....what a treasure trove.  An embarrassment of riches....the Marx Brothers.  Visual comics and banter that was priceless.

Of the movies, I like the early Paramounts the best, although there is something to enjoy in most of them.

DUCK SOUP and HORSE FEATHERS are my two favorites.  That said, the card game with two dowagers and Chico and Harpo in ANIMAL CRACKERS makes me roll on the floor....Harpo even ends up wearing the shoes oone of the women.

The bunker scene in DUCK SOUP when Groucho calls for help:  "There are four men and two women here, send help.  If you can't send help, send two more women....."

"....the optometrist's hospital, sort of a sight for sore eyes.......and you can get stucco - oh how you can get stucco...."

I will save some for others.....but there is a moment on the Groucho Marx You Bet Your Live DVD - where Groucho tells a high school boy:  "You're a fine looking young man."  The boy replies:  "So are you."  Groucho: "Yes, but I'm telling the truth."  The boy hesitates a moment and says:   "You got me there...."  And Groucho's expression is priceless.

Good morning, all!  Today's a housecleaning day.  I have a guest coming to visit and no place to put his things until I make some room.  I have to begin this work on the charts for the June concert of New York City Gay Men's Chorus today as well, so that I finish before I'm off to Goodspeed.  But I digress from the TOD:

DUCK SOUP is my favorite, and anything else with Margaret Dumont comes in second.  I feel Groucho is always in better form with one of her dowagers to kick around.

Favorite line (Groucho to Dumont): We're fighting for your honor, which is more than you ever did.

Well, I also love all of their early Paramount films which all contain so many priceless lines that it's impossible to narrow any down. They all make me convulse with laughter.

My favorite film is HORSE FEATHERS, and when Groucho gives the lecture on anatomy, it's just one  classic line after another. Even THE COCOANUTS, as primitive as it is, has that hilarious map reading/viaduct routine.

Years ago, MCA put out an LP with excerpts from W. C. Fields' films, and it was a big hit, so they went back to their Paramount archives and did similar LPs with the Marx Bros. and Mae West. The Marx Bros. LP is wonderful, but, of course, being an LP, can only contain just a handful of notable routines (and edited at that), plus it features some of Harpo and Chico's instrumental interludes. Gary Owens did the narration on the discs.

Darn!

Larry stole my favorite Marx Bros. line.  And it's from my favorite Brothers Marx movie, Duck Soup.

I remember reading Groucho Marx's letter to the lawyers at Warner Bros., who were suing the studio that was issuing A Night in Casablanca, saying that the title of the movie was an infringement on their movie, Casablanca.  It's priceless.  Maybe it's on the web somewhere.  I'll go on a webquest for it...

Thanks for going to the trouble of typing all of that. I got it from the Playbill site, but it's nice having it here, too.

Biggest shock to me was the Tony committee not playing footsie with Andrew Lloyd Webber and nominating BOMBAY DREAMS as Best Musical. The reviews were as mixed for it as they were for THE BOY FROM OZ, so I figured they'd throw ALW a bone.

Joe Mantello got nominated for ASSASSINS and not for WICKED! (Of course, he could have been nominated for both, but I suspect the committee didn't want to thwart his chances by splitting his votes.)

I just heard that the Kristen/Patti (poorly received) CANDIDE has been taped for PBS.  I was not about to pay the inflated prices they were charging, so I'll see it then and see if it as mediocre as I've heard.
Title: Re:THE BREAKFAST CLUB
Post by: Emily on May 10, 2004, 06:45:37 AM
Good morning!  Good yawning!

I'm back from my whirlwind trip to Toronto with DL (Dear Lurker)Andrea and some other friends where we caught Canstage's production of The Last Five Years.  I not going to pull a DR Maya and go into a detailed review (lol) but I will say that it was enjoyable and that the performances of the two actors were excellent although the set and lighting were lackluster at best (very very beige... literally.)  It was the first time I had seen the show produced (my only knowledge previously being the cast album from the original off-broadway cast).  I think I understand why so many people had "issues" with the show's concept when they saw it for the first time.  The fact that the characters have almost no chance to interact with one another directly is especially frustrating live.  It is this problem that makes The Last Five Years better as an album than a play.  I still love it (and loved seeing it play out in front of my eyes) though.

This morning I just managed to crawl out of bed and make my way downtown for my ridiculously early intensive summer class.  When I arrived at 9am, I walked into the classroom exhausted (the building is on the upper half of University Street - which means I came close to needing a pick and climbing rope) only to find a note scrawled across one of the black boards from the course's TA saying that the lecture was cancelled for that day and that our papers were still due tomorrow.  How sketchy is that?!?  Grr...  Well I guess I should be happy because now I have time to post heer and to have a cup of coffee and to start writing my critique of the Hong Kong section of the McKenna Brothers' The Valour and the Horror.  There's nothing like talking about POW camps early in the morning.  ;)

I don't really know all that much about the Marx Brothers, but I do enjoy Groucho's "I don't want to belong to any club that will accept me as a member"

Question to all DRs (regardless of whether it's Ask BK/DR Day or not)

I saw that the TONY noms are out today.  While I rarely have a chance to actually see any of the shows that get nominated, I still always look forward to the awards for the numbers they show from each of the musicals (okay okay... AMOUR is the exception ;) )  Which scene(s) do you think each show will chose to mount for their showcase?  I hope Wicked does "Defying Gravity" but I can understand why they wouldn't...
Title: Re:THE BREAKFAST CLUB
Post by: Ben on May 10, 2004, 07:03:01 AM
Em (if I may be so informal with you). I don't think they will do Defying Gravity. They will probably choose one of the ensemble numbers, such as when Kristin & Idina arrive in Oz.

I'll have to think about the others althought any number from Boy from Oz will be a Hugh Jackman showcase.
Title: Re:THE BREAKFAST CLUB
Post by: Robin on May 10, 2004, 07:10:12 AM
And here's the letter, as promised:

Dear Warner Brothers,


Apparently there is more than one way of conquering a city and holding it as your own. For example, up to the time that we contemplated making this picture, I had no idea that the city of Casablanca belonged exclusively to Warner Brothers. However, it was only a few days after our announcement appeared that we received your long, ominous legal document warning us not to use the name Casablanca.

It seems that in 1471, Ferdinand Balboa Warner, your great-great-grandfather, while looking for a shortcut to the city of Burbank, had stumbled on the shores of Africa and, raising his alpenstock (which he later turned in for a hundred shares of common), named it Casablanca.

I just don’t understand your attitude. Even if you plan on releasing your picture, I am sure that the average movie fan could learn in time to distinguish between Ingrid Bergman and Harpo. I don’t know whether I could, but I certainly would like to try.

You claim that you own Casablanca and that no one else can use that name without permission. What about “Warner Brothers”? Do you own that too? You probably have the right to use the name Warner, but what about the name Brothers? Professionally, we were brothers long before you were. We were touring the sticks as the Marx Brothers when Vitaphone was still a gleam in the inventor’s eye, and even before there had been other brothers—the Smith Brothers; the Brothers Karamazov; Dan Brothers, an outfielder with Detroit; and “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?” (This was originally “Brothers, Can You Spare a Dime?” but this was spreading a dime pretty thin, so they threw out one brother, gave all the money to the other one, and whittled it down to “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?”)

Now Jack, how about you? Do you maintain that yours is an original name? Well it’s not. It was used long before you were born. Offhand, I can think of two Jacks—Jack of “Jack and the Beanstalk,” and Jack the Ripper, who cut quite a figure in his day.

As for you, Harry, you probably sign your checks sure in the belief that you are the first Harry of all time and that all other Harrys are impostors. I can think of two Harrys that preceded you. There was Lighthouse Harry of Revolutionary fame and a Harry Appelbaum who lived on the corner of 93rd Street and Lexington Avenue. Unfortunately, Appelbaum wasn’t too well-known. The last I heard of him, he was selling neckties at Weber and Heilbroner.

Now about the Burbank studio. I believe this is what you brothers call your place. Old man Burbank is gone. Perhaps you remember him. He was a great man in a garden. His wife often said Luther had ten green thumbs. What a witty woman she must have been! Burbank was the wizard who crossed all those fruits and vegetables until he had the poor plants in such confused and jittery condition that they could never decide whether to enter the dining room on the meat platter or the dessert dish.

This is pure conjecture, of course, but who knows—perhaps Burbank’s survivors aren’t too happy with the fact that a plant that grinds out pictures on a quota settled in their town, appropriated Burbank’s name and uses it as a front for their films. It is even possible that the Burbank family is prouder of the potato produced by the old man than they are of the fact that your studio emerged “Casablanca” or even “Gold Diggers of 1931.”

This all seems to add up to a pretty bitter tirade, but I assure you it’s not meant to. I love Warners. Some of my best friends are Warner Brothers. It is even possible that I am doing you an injustice and that you, yourselves, know nothing about this dog-in-the-Wanger attitude. It wouldn’t surprise me at all to discover that the heads of your legal department are unaware of this absurd dispute, for I am acquainted with many of them and they are fine fellows with curly black hair, double-breasted suits and a love of their fellow man that out-Saroyans Saroyan.

I have a hunch that his attempt to prevent us from using the title is the brainchild of some ferret-faced shyster, serving a brief apprenticeship in your legal department. I know the type well—hot out of law school, hungry for success, and too ambitious to follow the natural laws of promotion. This bar sinister probably needled your attorneys, most of whom are fine fellows with curly black hair, double-breasted suits, etc., into attempting to enjoin us. Well, he won’t get away with it! We’ll fight him to the highest court! No pasty-faced legal adventurer is going to cause bad blood between the Warners and the Marxes. We are all brothers under the skin, and we’ll remain friends till the last reel of “A Night in Casablanca” goes tumbling over the spool.


Sincerely,

Groucho Marx

I love the Marx Bros. and the early Paramount films are my favorites. I did attempt to watch AT THE CIRCUS the other night, as I had taped it off of TCM, but just couldn't get through it. I do recall liking A DAY AT THE RACES, however.

I think AT THE CIRCUS is a gem compared to ROOM SERVICE which I find hard to sit through despite  young starlets Lucy and Annie.

Yes, I remember reading that letter to Warners in Arthur Marx's THE GROUCHO PHILES, always a wonderful book for a few quick laughs.

I think for ASSASSINS, they'll do Guiteau's song. I think Denis O'Hare has a wonderful chance of winning another Tony this year, and often they set up a supporting actor's win his show stopping moment (I'm remembering Michael Jeter's show stopper seconds before his win and the same with Kristin Chenoweth before she won her award.)

Della and Perry investigated and found out the following: Yes, Panni was tired, yes, she went to bed, and no, she couldn't sleep. So she got up and read the notes and the posts. Then she went back to bed and still didn't sleep for most of the night.

Good Afternoon!

-I just missed Good Morning here on the East Coast.

T-o-D (as oppposed to D-in-T):
Animal Crackers
A Night at the Opera
Duck Soup


-And I'm actually fond of the stage works A Night in the Ukraine (preceded by A Day In Hollywood) as well as The Cocoanuts.

RE: The Tony Noms - No real surprises.  Really, I don't think were any surprises.  -Unless some idiot thinks Sean "Puffy" Combs should have gotten a Best Leading Actor nomination... ugh!  As far as Joe Manello not getting nommed for Wicked, no real surprise there either - imho.

For me, the one race I'm most excited about is the Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical.  I'm so happy that Anika Noni Rose got nominated.  It's a pretty solid category - imho.

The only confusing thing to me is in Caroline, or Change's nomination for Best Original Score.  Jeanine Tesori and Tony Kushner are listed... and not just Jeanine.  Hmm...  I shall have to investigate further...

On a related note - and I've hinted at this in previous posts... I've been talking with a bunch of friends and professional acquaintances in New York over the past couple of weeks, and to them - and to others - there seems to be sense that Caroline, or Change should win in the proverbial air.  -No matter how much you liked it - or didn't like it.  It's the classic case of "Who will win?"  and "Who should win?"  Again, I liked Caroline, but I thought it was more interesting than good.  Maybe some of the tweaks they made for the move uptown have "improved" the show, but since I won't be able to see the show again until after the Tonys...  We shall see.  -And, again, I'm really pulling for Avenue Q...  But I guess we can save our Tony picks for a few weeks from now.

And on another related note - The Washington, DC "Tonys" are being held tonight - The Helen Hayes Awards.  Alas, I shall be taking it easy at home tonight, but I just wanted to put out a collective "Congratulations!" to all my friends who got nominated!  -You better thank me in your acceptance speeches!!   ;D

Someone working at CBS knew who the final two were, and lists have been circulating for months that the final two were Rob and Amber. So that was no surprise. (I didn't watch SURVIVOR All-Stars at all). But remembering the hatred Rob generated his first time around, and reading the synopses each week of the episodes, I had a hard time believing it wasn't going to be Amber. However, I saw that the vote was VERY close. Some people obviously appreciated Rob's manipulations.

Post by: Jennifer on May 10, 2004, 09:58:36 AM
The vote was actually 4-3.  It was very close and I think Rob should have won.  He was my choice.  He has been my favorite since the first episode.

He did get $250K though.  And he proposed to Amber on live tv.

Woody, your observation was similar to what my dad said when we went to see "Fantasia 2000."  We saw it in Seattle in the Imax theater (not important to the story, but it was pretty darned cool) and he commented that every scene (unlike the original) was introduced...that every scene had to have an explanation.  He said that Walt Disney (especially in regards to the original Fantasia) "assumed the intelligence of the audience."  He feels that no one does that anymore.  I think he's right.

Except for places like HHW, of course!  ;D

Good night, all!

And Woody responded with:

Quote
Uh, yes and no.  The original Fantasia used Deems Taylor to introduce each piece, and explain to the audience what they were about to see.  A number of people seem to forget Mr. Taylor.

And I respond to Woody's responce:

Oops! ::) I guess it's been quite a while since I've seen the original "Fantasia."  I have the three-disc set "Fantasia Anthology" but I now remember that I only watched the third disc with all the bonus material.  I'll have to correct that oversight very soon!

Yes I enjoyed that CANDIDE very much.  It's the NYCO production which I saw about 12 years ago and which is being done again next Spring.

Unless they tape "Defying Gravity" at the Gershwin I don't think they will do it.  If they are smart, the will showcase both leading ladies.  I'm just curious as to what they will do for AVENUE Q... much of it is a little to "adult" for broadcast television, and with the wardrobe mishap earlier this season on CBS, I think they will be very careful.

I'm not sure why some people think Caroline should win. DR Jose, I'm of the same opinion. You said "I thought it was more interesting than good" There were some very good things about the show, Anika Noni Rose being the main thing. But there is just something about it that doesn't work for me. An excellent 11oclock number by Pinkins and some other good pieces of work don't make a Tony award winning show IMHO (in my humble opinion). Having seen all 4 musicals nominated, I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Avenue Q to win Best Musical but I don't think it's going to happen. Oh, well. In less than a month, all will be revealed.

Much of what the critics disliked about the CANDIDE concert was the visuals and the book changes which added topical jokes.  Also Patti's diction problems were mentioned (something that used to be a such a  problem  that it was noted in "Forbidden Broadway" but that hasn't occured since her prior to her one-woman show).  The music was generally admired.

Re: Tony Best Musical Showcases:

The trend in recent years has been to use a number that gives everyone in the cast a chance to be on stage.  So my best hunches would be the following:

"One Day in the Emerald City" from Wicked, as it utilizes the entire cast.  This will probably lead off the show, because it takes Menzel a while to get out of her makeup (I've heard she practically has to steam it off).

Avenue Q will probably use "It Sucks to Be Me," as it uses most everyone in the cast.  Katie Monster doesn't have the same make-up problems as Idina.

The Boy From Oz will of course showcase Jackman, and will probably have the mid-show spot, to keep the show from getting too dull.  Any number that boasts lots of chorus will work.

This leaves Caroline, or Change.  I'm not familiar with the score (has it been recorded yet?), but this is the one case where I can see the selected number featuring the star, Pinkins.  Who will then be standing in the wings as the "Best Actress" award is given...to someone else.  And the camera will linger on her a second or two too long, just to make everyone uncomfortable.

We might also get Revival featured numbers.  But again, I would lay odds on numbers featuring chorus.  That way, we'll get lots of confusing cuts away from whoever is singing at the moment, in favor of shots from cameras close to stage level, looking up at the now unrecognizable performers.  And there will be no performance from Big River, for the obvious closure reason.

Whoever is directing the show is probably glad I Am My Own Wife isn't a musical, since it's also a one-man show.  How can they train the camera on the wrong person when there's no other person to shoot?

I wonder if they will do a song from BIG RIVER since it closed so long ago. It would be so interesting to see it done with the signing. They may just use some taped excerpts like they did with JUAN DARIAN.

But I suspect we'll see live excerpts from ASSASSINS, WONDERFUL TOWN, and FIDDLER.

Good Afternoon!

I AM CLEAN!!!!!

YIPPEE!!!

WHOOPEE!!!

WHEW!!!!

(BIG sigh of relief!!!)

Plus, my doc didn't even charge me for the visit today!!!

So...

As for the sense that Caroline, or Charge should win...  I just get the impression from a lot of people, that since it's such an "important" piece... that it deals with such serious subject matter... that it presents such a personal portrait of someone... that it is a "difficult" piece... even that Frank Rich devoted lots of ink to it...  And this "praise" even spills over into Tonya Pinkins' chances for snagging the Tony for her performance.  I just dunno.  I'm not a Tony voter, so maybe my impressions are truly those of an outsider.  We shall see...

As for the number from Avenue Q - The writers have been writing custom material for various presentations (tour groups, etc.)... They could have lots of fun.  Maybe they could do some of the more "adult" numbers, and just have the offending words "bleeped" out, or changed to other like-sounding, but not offensive words.  -And maybe they'll feature Stephanie D'Abruzzo doing a snippet of "It's A Fine Fine Line" - which broke my heart in the theatre.

DR SWW - I just saw the promo for the new 2-hour block of "Good Eats" on Wednesday nights on FoodTV!  YUMMY!!

DR Jose, one mustn't forget about the Tony voters who live outside NYC and are in charge of national tours of shows. Their numbers are larger than the "in the know" NYCers and are generally given as the reason THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE won Best Musical over URINETOWN and THE LION KING over RAGTIME. They felt those shows would have a healthier life on the road if they had the Best Musical Tony as a prize to herald their achievements.

I'm not saying it always works this way - obviously PASSION won over BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, but there were other forces at play that year.

I honestly think AVENUE Q has a better shot at beating WICKED than CAROLINE.

Someone last week was asking about the differences between the two LP releases of Coco. I had to wait until I got home to look it up.

On the first issue: The Overture fades directly into the first song (But That's They Way You Are)

On the second issue: There is a short pause between.


On the first issue:   The Money Rings Out Like Freedom has a long dance section.

On the second issue: The dance section has been cut

On the first issue: The monologue preceding the song Gabrielle has a silent background

On the second issue: The monlogue is underscored using the music of Coco.

On the first issue: Orbach's, Bloomingdales, Best and Saks is missing a very short segment of dance music.

On the second issue: The short segment has been reinstated, but the long dance segment on the first issue has been cut.

The second issue was also remixed.

To tell which LP release you have. Look at the label. The first issue you will see that each song is numbered and they are uniformed. They look like this.

1
2
3
4

On the second issue/remix the numbers are staggered. Like this

   1
2
    3
4

I love it when deeveedee reviewers write about "edge enhancement".  What the hell is "edge enhancement" supposed to be, anyway?  

Good God, that Monster reviewer really has his head up his nether regions, doesn't he?  I think his edges need enhancing.  

I just finished watching the new deeveedee of Dracula Has Risen from the Grave.  I wonder whether or not "edge enhancement" could've detracted from my enjoyment of the movie?  

The Significant Other and myself will be watching the Disney version of Tarzan later tonight.  I wonder if his edges will be enhanced?

Loved the pictures of the breakfast get together! Someday we really must have an HHW get together for our northwest denizens.

I think we should do it this summer in Portland...what say you TCB, Jed, JMK, Jane, Ann and anyone else in the vicinity who I am forgetting!

BILLIE...JRand53 sent me a copie of that a few years back. I don't know what I really though of it. It was strangly entertaining and yet I don't know if I liked it or not. Very odd indeed.

Someone last week was asking about the differences between the two LP releases of Coco. I had to wait until I got home to look it up....

Actually Michael, I had asked about the differences between the album and the CD release.  I didn't know that there were two album releases.  I'll have to check which one I have and compare it with the CD.  Anyway, thanks for the info!

The Billie DVD is full frame, but since the director is not very good (Don Weis) and basically a TV sort of guy, I'm sure it will be fine.

Edge enhancement - someone would have to come to my house and point it out to me.  Every time they post screenshots showing the supposed horrifying edge enhancement, I simply don't see it.  These dweebs all went to the same "school" - all they know is "solid blacks" "gray scale" "edge enhancement" "debris" (I mean they ALL use the exact same terminology!) and other such bushwa.

By the way, Sorry, Wrong Number with Miss Stanwyck was quite a dull affair, save for the last few minutes.   There were flashbacks within flashbacks, for Pete's sake!  I enjoyed seeing Mister Lancaster, but then, I always enjoy seeing him.  

I wonder if edge enhancement marred my enjoyment of the film.

Yes yes yes - BILLIE has hullaballoo dancing with Miss Donna McKechnie - in one long shot I beleive even standing in for the dance challenged future Aint Eller.  It is strange to see Patty Duke in scenes about The Beat, when she couldn't get "THE BEAT" if someone was hitting on the head with a hammer....and the lovely GIRL IS A GIRL IS A GIRL drag number in the locker room has many implications.

BILLIE also has a Frances Farmer connection!  If anyone knows it.  And by the way, a young FF was the writer of the poem I posted yesterday.

Can't speak for Jane, although I suspect she'd say the same thing, but there was too much to eat it all.
Actually, I hardly ever eat all my food. This drives some people crazy. But I just eat until I'm full and then I stop. Unless I'm really nervous or upset, in which case I either can't eat at all or I eat way past being full because I don't realize I'm full until I get a stomach ache from eating TOO MUCH.
Aren't you glad you asked, Jennifer?

Evening all!

I must say how very much I enjoyed the pictures of the Breakfast Club!    It looked like a swell meeting and tons of fun!

Going back to last night and toilets  and such.  You really should have a seat cover.  There's no more rude awakening then a shot of cold to the old butt cheeks in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning!

We don’t have a problem with the seat being up in our house.  Then again there are just two human females.

 Poor Bear is 7 years old and still squats like a girl.  I think he gets confused.  I do find it somewhat embarrassing when I take him for a walk.  But then your talking about someone who wore a skirt to work the other week and tried to pull it down when attending one of lifes necessities.   Skirts/dresses up.  Pants down.  Hey, I can’t remember EVERYTHING!   ;D

Camelot is over, and it was fun and all that jazz. We recieved excellent reviews, mediocre audiences, and lots of laughs. I'm actually glad the SHOW is over, although I do miss the people involved.

I'm auditioning for "The Enchantment of Beauty and the Beast" this Friday night. It's a childrens show, and I'm hoping to get a fun role. I wonder if Mrs. Pots exists in this version...?

I am very, very, very ready for school to be out...

Fantastic fun, crisp line delivery, great choreography, superb staging and scenery, the laughter and applause just kept on coming. I'll never be able to look at Zimmer frames the same way again!

Good Evening!

Well, I'm back up in Arlington.  I decided to go ahead and make the drive up tonight rather than dealing with the heat tomorrow afternoon, so...  Alas, I shall have to deal with my own "evil eye" when she knocks on the door at 8:30 tomorrow morning... Ah, well...

Dinner was good.  We did the 1/2 price burger and quiche night at Strawberry St. Cafe.  My burger was pretty good tonight - sometimes it's just like a hockey puck.  Unfortunately, Mark's quiche (crabmeat and swiss) was not as good as it could have been.  -This place has a habit of putting a thick layer of cheese on top of their quiches... it just makes for too much cheese - and makes the quiche much richer than it should be.  But what can you do...  EAT!

As luck would have it, I ended up looking at possible new apartment after dinner... Very nice place, and it's availability is right in line with my schedule.  So... we shall see...  -And, best of all, it's only a short block from my current place... so I can just walk and/or cart everything over!  -And the landlord is very cool too!

Well, I'm gonna watch some TV... Sorry I missed chat... I got caught up in the "Wrinkle In Time" movie.  Not bad.  Makes me want to re-read the books again.  -Interesting side note, in Newsweek, Madeleine L'Engle said she didn't like the movie... Hmmm...
Title: Re:THE BREAKFAST CLUB
Post by: S. Woody White on May 10, 2004, 08:24:27 PM
Did L'Engle say why she didn't like the movie, or is it another of those amorphous statements?

It's probably as good a film version as could be made.  The book gets very abstract at times.

For those films where professional reviewers have labeled edge enhancement, I think they were using front projection systems with seven foot screens or larger in order to see it. Those of us with 65" TV screens or less would never notice such things.

Good evening all

I'm watching A Wrinkle In Time on ABC.  Is anyone watching it?  So far, I'm not too impressed.  First of all, WHY ISN'T MEG WEARING GLASSES?  I don't get it...that was such a bit part of her character.  
Second...I don't like the way they've portrayed Mrs. Murray.  She's not the calm level headed woman she is in the book.
Okay, I won't say anything more for now...I'll give it a chance.

Back from my (WGA) union meeting. There was a fatal accident on the route, so traffic was terrible and they held the beginning. The meeting was somewhat informative  - and a couple of the speakers were actually amusing  (the screenwriter Phil Alden Robinson for one) in a depressing fashion. (I'm too hungry to explain that one.) On the way out - I left early - after 2 hours - I was cornered by a reporter from the Hollywood Reporter (is that redundant?) who wanted my thoughts on wht went on. Boy did he have the wrong vampire! His beat is union stuff and lawsuits. A fun job. I told him nothing worthwhile and made him promise not to quote me on the nothing I told nim, but as he wasn't allowed into the meeting, he was grateful for the nothing. Now I'm going to have supper.

As To The Northwest HHW Get-together.

The last time I brought the subject up, I think it was Jane who asked what was wrong with holding it in September instead.  I assumed that she was thinking how difficult it would be to get all of us together in the middle of summer, with vacations, holidays, etc., etc, etc.  I still think it is a great idea, whenever we decide to get together. However, since I am sure that JMK, and family, will want to put all of us up at their place for the weekend, perhaps they should have a say in when we hold the event.
