A classic

10 years ago at Jan 18 8:28

First of all, to  be honest, I have to admit that I have never been a huge musical fan. As a matter of fact, I recently saw ‘La La Land’ and even though , it was a big critical and commercial success, I still had a hard time to care about the damned thing. Well, coming... read more

Lucky is tricked into missing his wedding to Margaret by the other members of Pop's magic and dance act, and has to make $25000 to be allowed to marry her. He and Pop go to New York where they run into Penny, a dancing instructor. She and Lucky form a successful dance partnership, but romance is blighted (till the end of the film at least!) by his old attachment to Margaret and hers for Ricardo, the band leader who won't play for them to dance together.

" Notes: First of all, to be honest, I have to admit that I have never been a huge musical fan. As a matter of fact, I saw ‘La La Land’ already a couple of times and even though it was a big critical and commercial success, I still had a hard time to care about the damned thing. Well, coming back to our main feature, since it is a huge classic, I still had to watch it at some point. Well, even though I usually prefer Gene Kelly, I must admit that Fred Astaire was really awesome in this flic"

"“Fred Astaire would rehearse for up to six months before they started filming. And relentlessly rehearse – not a few hours a day, but all day long. Fred and Ginger movies are magnets; you can’t walk past them. You have to watch…. It’s the degree of excellence.” -Sally Field “One reason I think this is such a good Fred and Ginger movie is they had a really good director, George Stevens. It’s such a joyful movie and it just makes you feel good, and anytime you’re down in the dum"
