nothing wrong with pure entertainment.  i love all the old rodgers and hammerstein and fred astaire movies.  also love what we always call "the pod people" (although that's not its real title) and "the day the earth stood still"  -  they're still fun!

Great entertainment films include such classic Coen Brothers films:
Fargo - If you have ever been to the upper midwest you understand this movie
Oh Brother Where Art Thou - saw again last night GREAT fun film

Another producer of great films:
Merchant-Ivory  This couple produces oppulent well crafted movies that just for the eye are fantastic. There is a huge list but most remember Room with a View, Howards End etc. Anyone with HD widescreen will love these....

He postponed his much needed heart surgery for his craft.  He passed away the last day of filming.

 

Another great was Raul Julia he was one of "mine" when he came over from Puerto Rico & did Joe Papps Shakespeare In The Park----"Two Gentleman From Verona"....One of the nicest, caring human beings you would ever have the pleasure of meeting.  I've often lamented to his widow that he would be remembered as Gomez " Addams Family" his last gig. His greatest work in my opinion was "Kiss Of The Spider Woman"...out on DVD..if your a homophob don't bother. He also starred in "Nine" ( take off of Fellini's 8 1/2"... he passed away in his early 50's loss of another great one...

 

Both...."Kiss.... & Nine" were adapted for the Great White Way...I had the pleasure of seeing both.... Watching Chita Rivera at an advanced age climbing "The Spider Web" Incredible

Yes, Kiss of the Spider Woman was a great film....the acting, the way the story unfolds and the story telling style....excellent film. Funny, but when you mentioned Raul Julia I thought first of this film and had forgotten Addams Family. He really was an asset to Addams Family.....

"Intolerance" Filmed by D.W. Griffith in 1916. It is considered by many as the greatest movie of the silent

era, and by yours truly as the greatest movie of all

time.  Four stories are intertwined showing man's inhumanity to man.  It stars Eugene Pallette, Constance

Talmedge, and (in the Modern story) Mae Marsh, one

of the greatest film actresses in history , and totally forgotten today.  The DVD usually comes with the

original orchestration. (The movie played with a full

orchestra).

I thoroughly enjoy the Coen brothers and Merchant and Ivory productions.  My husband tends to find the latter rather tedious and cannot sit through them. 

Donna, I knew Raul Julia's first wife, Magda.  I met her when we lived in San Juan.  I'm glad to hear that he had better luck with his second wife b/c Magda was something else.

One of my favorite film moments is Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron dancing along the Seines to "Our Love is Here to Stay" in "American in Paris". A scene I repeated with my wife on our honeymoon 7 years ago this past week.

Donna, I loved Raul Julia in "Nine". I can still remember him singing "Be Italian".

 

Also remember him from Papp's "Three Penny Opera" as Mack the Knife.

Tony, congratulations on your anniversary.  How wonderful to celebrate in Paris. 

Donna, I must have skipped over the part of your message referring to NINE.  My Italian prof at Hunter, Mario Fratti, was one of the playwrights.  He was also involved in the revival.  He's done a lot of plays through the years but that was the most famous.

Andrea,

 

I also had Mario Fratti for Italian at Hunter.  It was in the

Spring, 1970 term.  Life in the Big Apple: the

same high school and college, and we're never met.

Sammy, I took three years of Italian.  I have no natural facility for language so three years was always my limit.  Three years of Latin, three years of French (both at MC) and then Italian.  I also studied Spanish with Berlitz while living in Puerto Rico. 

I had to have been in your class b/c Fratti taught me for my last two years.  Of all my language teachers, he's the one who actually had me speaking.  I used to hang out with the Europeans in class.  Since I was a bio major, this was a whole new crowd for me. 

My first year I was taught by a woman - Zecca?  I can't remember her name but she was always dressed in black leather.  She wore the same black leather suit with a black turtleneck every single day no matter what the weather.  She had to have been from Milan. 

I'm sorry we never met...

I wouldn't say I got the steps or the key quite right, but the sentiment was there.

 

Anyone else have any film moments they would like to (or have recreated)?

 

How about the meeting at the top of the Empire State Building from "An Affair to Remember"?
