2) Jodie Foster (but only in Anna and the King)
3) The blind Muppet from Muppet Treasure Island
Ho hum. Any gifted celebrity impersonators out there?
Dodging around other people's blogs, I've noticed serials seem to be all the rage. Which I wasn't too enthusiastic about, as I currently have none. While I was attempting to come up with a halfway clever idea for a series, I stumbled upon (no, not literally) this picture of Gene Tierney.
And something felt off, you know? Not quite right. At first I thought it was her lack of make-up, but after much (okay, a few seconds of) thought, knew that wasn't the case...she's still pretty gorgeous, after all. It was the socks.
So there you have it, my series proposal. Sort of a backwards version of one of those "Celebrities-- They're Just Like Us!" you see so often in popular magazines.
Worst case scenario: I run outta pictures, in which case I'll come up with an excuse and ask politely for your forgiveness. Sound good? ;)
Was poking my nose around that WWBD site again, and came across a pretty cool (if Judy biased-- which is more than fine by me) survey. Warning: I'm pretty heavily obsessed with musicals, so if you're not...what are you doing here anyway? Scram. ;)
What is your favorite musical from the 1930s? One Hour With You...maybe. Eh, there's too much out there.
From the 40s? Heck, you expect me to decide? Hm...anything Judy did, or Good News.
From the 50s? Lili, Gigi or Singin' in the Rain.
From the 60s? Sweet Charity. If I must. ;)
From the 70s? Cabaret. Most definitely. What'd you think-- Fiddler?From the 80s? Victor/Victoria. Not that there was a lot to choose from...
From the 90s to today? Each time I watch Chicago, I'm more and more impressed.
Out of these, which is your favorite? Probably something Judy did...Meet Me in St. Louis, or Easter Parade.
Who are your favorite musical actors? Gordon McRae, Fred Astaire, Peter Lawford, Maurice Chevalier...
Who are your favorite musical actresses? Judy Garland, Leslie Caron, Doris Day, Ginger Rogers, Virginia O'Brien...
Who are your favorite musical directors? Chuck Walters, Busby Berkeley, and Vincente Minnelli
Who are your favorite songwriters? Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg, Irving Berlin, Kander and Ebb.
Who are you favorite dancers? Ginger Rogers, Eleanor Powell, Fred Astaire, Ann Miller, Buddy Ebsen
What is your favorite showtune? Ooh, toughie. "How About You?" from Babes on Broadway or "Isn't This a Lovely Day?" from Top Hat. Seems I like my songs to be interrogatory...
What is your favorite movie with Fred and Ginger? Carefree...or Top Hat...or Swing Time...or The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle...
What is your favorite movie with Mickey and Judy? Girl Crazy. Mm-hm.
What is your favorite movie with Nelson and Jeanette? Maytime's actually the only one I like. Nelson annoys me more than he did Jeanette.
What is your favorite Judy Garland movie? MMISL. Or maybe For Me and My Gal.
What is your favorite Gene Kelly movie? For Me and My Gal or Singin' in the Rain.
MGM or RKO? What? You can't do that. Both.
Pasternak or Freed Unit? Hahaha, that's allowed. Freed Unit, hands down.
Astaire or Kelly? Astaire.
Howard Keel or Gordon McRae? Well, I never liked Howard Keel, so...
June Allyson or Jane Powell? June, but both were good.
Barbra Streisand or Liza Minnelli? Oh c'mon! That's like Sophie's choice...only difference is I won't be choosing.
Mary Poppins or The Sound of Music? Mary Poppins.
Julie Andrews as Poppins or Audrey Hepburn? To be fair, I've only seen one scene done by Andrews, so I'm afraid Hepburn has it.
Favorite dance by Fosse? I'm cheating-- the one he choreographed for Liza with a Z..."Blackbird." But from a movie? "If My Friends Could See Me Now."
What is your favorite aqua-musical? Hahaha, so this pretty much narrows it down to Esther Williams, huh? Yeah okay, Million Dollar Mermaid.
What is your favorite non-musical scene from a musical? Heck, I dunno....there are too many to choose from. I like all of Ginger's hypnosis scenes from Carefree, so we'll go with that.
PS. I've always wanted to do this...
