I also saw THE EPIC THAT NEVER WAS (and I, CLAUDIUS) oh so many years ago on PBS and enjoyed them both VERY MUCH.

Soon afterwards on PBS was a miniseries based on an Emile Zola novel, and I want to say NANA, but I don't think that's right....but it was great!!

My question for ASK BK day.....does a choreographer for the movies DO the whole number.....and who chooses when there are cuts for closeups and reaction shots....the director or the editor.

Lots of times there are many parts of a number that are never shown, and I have wondered if the choreographer and dancers worked for hours on measures of music that never got seen....or were never shot.

I see that the MR. MOTO DVD boxed set arrives next week. As does BILLY BUDD (for a very high price).

And for fans of the classic TV shows, there is HAZEL - Season 1.

It really depends on the film.  Things like Singin' In The Rain are so carefully planned out that cuts cannot be made anywhere where they're not wanted.  More modern films, they cut where they please - usually the editor puts it together and the director changes what he wishes, and then sometimes the studios change that.  Something like Chicago is interesting, in that the director is the choreographer, he stages the numbers, but shoots them with many, many cameras and it's all assembled in the editing room, like a TV special.  Not my favorite way of having a musical number done.  I much prefer the well thought out and planned West Side Story, The Sound of Music, and any of the Kelly/Donen musicals.

Blessed be.....

....the marine layer crept across the bay last night and moved a few miles inland.

Cool, cool coolness engulfed me in my sleep.

I woke up to find I'd pulled my sheet over me.


Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...

After taking Molly to the airport, I wanted to watch a movie that didn't make me think! So I put in GRAND PRIX which arrived yesterday.

The DVD was discussed here in detail last week.....I enjoyed the extras (didn't watch them all ) - but the car sounds on the extras seemed BETTER than the car sounds in the movie....hmmmm.

I also thought that Mr Sidney Guilaroff - who was in charge of hair, makeup and costume selection (!) for the ladies...did NONE of them any favors in any of those departments.  Most of the clothes were terrible and there didn't seem to be any thought behind any of them.  Poor Eva Marie Saint fared the worst....especially hair wise!

The ONLY dress that was actually attractive and fit well was the one that Genevieve Page wore to the final race.....

Oh well....

My question, too!!!

Anyway, good morning to all. And another packed day, in anticipation of good news from the San Antonio repair shop... I may be heading out as early as tonight, and beginning the long drive through Hell tomorrow morning. Fingers x'd.

On another note - for me, always the High B-flat - I have been unsuccessful at scaring up a cast for a This-Week reading of The Play. At this rate, it may be necessary to move such a reading to mid-September. Which will be here in a flash, if Time keeps moving like this...

Off I go - have a good one, Kidz.

Finally, it is done...I have my new replacement automobile. I got the same as I had before...Tidal Wave Blue Hyundai 4 dr hatchback...but this one is a 2006 with 101 miles on it and with cruise-control (which is standard with the 2006 models). I almost went with the white one, but didn't like the interior colors.

I only had to shell out (actuall, charge on my visa) an extra 400 dollars, but what can you do. I am just happy to be done with it all and to have a car again!!

After buying the car I came home and interviewed little Jimmy Baird...brother to Mouseketeer Sharon Baird, and who was featured in THE SEVEN LITTLE FOYS (as Eddie Foy, Jr.), RETURN OF DRACULA, and he played Natalie Woods' little brother in REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE.

He is now an English high school teacher in the LA area and has been married for 42 years to kid actress Sharon Manns (they were high school sweethearts), who played "girl on a donkey" in THE TEN COMMANDMENTS! LOL!

Well, God knows if there's one person who needs cruise control . . .
