ANNA AND THE KING OF SIAM:
Irene Dunne donnes the hoopskirts in Fox's 1946 adaptation of Margaret Landon's fact-based book. Whilst "King and I" fans will miss the score, this straightforward dramatic retelling of the exotic story remains, on it's own merits, a very satisfying movie. Rex Harrison is the King of Siam, with Linda Darnell in a rare unsympathetic role as concubine Tuptim.
Cole Porter's giddy 1953 Broadway musical became a ripe showcase for croonin' Frank Sinatra and high-kicking Shirley MacLaine in the early Sixties; a period when some of the most lavish "scope" musicals invaded screens. It's beautifully photographed; Louis Jourdan and Maurice Chevalier co-star and bring back some classic "Gigi" charm with them; and it's zestily scored by Nelson Riddle.
DADDY LONG LEGS:
Fred Astaire's charm breaks through whatever "icky" connotations accompany his May-December romance with Leslie Caron, in this musical spin on Jean Webster's beloved novel. Boasting the Academy Award-nominated song "Something's Gotta Give", DADDY LONG LEGS is a delightful (if slightly over-long) good time for family audiences. Terry Moore and Thelma Ritter co-star.
Regarded for years as Julie Andrews' "lost" musical, STAR! has developed quite the reputation in spite of being virtually ignored at the box-office during it's original release. Playing against type as the ballsy, brash London stage legend Gertrude Lawrence, Andrews does a solid enough job, delivering in the musical sequences especially.Read more ›
