This week’s comment diversion comes from Sara_Tonin00’s excellent suggestion that we share our favourite musical movie moments. Please tell us your favourite sequence, montage, or number.
I’ll start with something short and freaking hilarious . Corky working on his choreography in Waiting for Guffman:
My favourite musical number is Judy Garland singing “Get Happy” in the otherwise awful musical Summer Stock:
Unless you have no soul, your list will include the montage of censored movie kisses from Cinema Paradiso. Poetry:
Mr Julien asked me to include “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head” from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, in particular, the way the fence acts like frames of film during the second verse:
… and the “La Marseillaise” sequence in Casablanca. It’s a candle against the darkness:
In her suggestion email, Sara_Tonin00 said she would include something from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, although how anything good can come from that tripe is beyond me.
Comment diversion suggestions, profanity-laced tirades, and Easter eggs can be sent here.
