Crop And Save
Finian's Rainbow (1968)
"Something Sort of Grandish"
This outlandish musical will be sure to make your heart feel so sugar candish.
It's a delightful romp with the talents of Fred Astair, Petuala Clark and tommy Steele (whom, quite frankly, steals the show as the insanely funny Og the leprechaun) Pure Fun!
This movie throws in a very profound moral lesson about judgment and racism presented with a spoonful of silliness that keeps you from feeling preached at.
Musical numbers abound and the catchy lyrics will have you singing under you breath for days to come.
The Jazz Singer (1980)
Feel good and forget about the finer points!
OK, I keep reading all these poor reviews and comments people make about this movie and I just don't understand it!.
The Jazz singer is a wonder film.
OK, OK, so the acting and cinematography are not Oscar quality, but who cares? Have we become so jaded by modern movie making that we can't enjoy a little road trip, a Sunday drive so to speak? And that's what this movie is. A break in the day to listen to great music, get a couple of laughs, and drool over Neil. You don't have to think, just watch and enjoy.
The story is cute. The music is moving. And the one liners are artful. "Would you settle for a pizza?" I was truly moved by Jessie's conflict between his obligation towards the culture he was reared in and his desire to sing the songs he loves and share them with the world. My heart gave a sad flip when his father tore his clothes. And tears really welled up in my eyes when he returns to the beach house. I will admit though that this film has more appeal, in general, to women than to men. I discovered this movie as a young adult and it now one of my "comfort foods" So pop some pop-corn or grab a bottle of wine, sit down, and prepare to enjoy your evening.
