If you had to pick one scene from 'Casablanca'...
I'd have to say my favorite scene is the one in which Paul Henreid leads the singing in Rick's. As one writer put it, "One by one, the habitués of the bar join in the "Marseillaise." The Germans sing still louder, but they're no match for the pro-French civilians. Drowned out, the soldiers give up in disgust. The "Marseillaise" comes to its stirring conclusion, and with tears in their eyes the patriots in the bar cry out, "Vive la France!"
This scene always brings tears to my eyes which illustrates, among other things, the power of music in movies.
What is your favorite scene in 'Casablanca'?
Summer of '42 (1971)
The Main Character is a Pedophile
Have you ever thought of "Summer of 42" as a story about a pedophile? Why not? Because the pedophile is a woman. The teacher in that movie repeatedly raped her student. That is a fact. But because of our inbuilt anti-male bias no one thought of that movie as portraying and gloriifying a criminal. But consider what the reaction would have been had a male teacher raped his female student in a similarly presented story?
The character of Dorothy played by Jennifer O'Neill has sex with a minor boy. Why a statutory rape is regarded as 'sensitive' and 'beautiful' I cannot fathom. If 'Dorothy' had been a man whose wife was killed and HE raped a minor girl I doubt if the film would have been seen as touching.
