forget the movie..let him talk.
Charles boyer had quite a voice. no one before or since has ever quite sound like him. his voice and manner were the foundation for the cartoon character pepe le pew. if that does not give you the right to feel special..nothing will.it would have been nice to hear that voice say..luke..I am your father. time to make the doughnuts. we are the flying elvises.. Utah chapter. I like your fidget spinner. and now..my collabbro with james earl jones. I just saved money on my insurance ..because of a damn talking lizard. I did not watch the first porkys..so I can not give you an informed opinion on the saga. all the haters can kiss dave lettermans ass. if you think you surprised me with folgers coffee ingrid..I have a bigger one..the candy you ate..x lax..so the real gas light is on. the louvre should have a taco bell. now people know.. he was one of a kind.
minnelli's swan song
- don letta
Vincent Minnelli's autobiographical end of career presentation. As another reviewer mentioned, it should be seen by someone old enough to have memories of a life well spent. Bergman brings this to the screen with the right amount of pride, pity and regret. Liza is just ok...her big eyed, open mouth act gets tiresome, and her musical numbers, while well done are unnecessary. Not a resounding success, but nonetheless a wise observation of the end days of a full life.
Ingrid Bergman shines!
To truly appreciate this film - and Bergman's performance in it! - one most be old, as I am or, alternatively, young and starry-eyed. The film presents both sides of the coin of life and does it well. This film could have been better but the message is so profound that you can even find it here nonetheless. I love Liza but I do wish the studio had made this straight up without the musical numbers. Liza's acting would have stood on its own, as it always has. I will definitely view this film again when TCM shows it.
Embarassment to the Minnellis?
In her Private Screenings interview with Robert Osborne, Liza mentioned that it had been especially difficult for her during this film because her father was in the early stages of dementia and often couldn't get his points across to the actors and the crew in meaningful ways. Personally, I'm glad they had the kind of personal and professional closure which this film must have represented for them. It has many moments of charm, as well as some heavy-handed mood-making. It's by no means thoroughly enchanting, but Ingrid Bergman is so touching as a woman who has known great acclaim in her life now nearing her end. In some ways, this is her father's story and Liza's participation shows, to me, her devotion to her family and to her art. I have never bypassed this film when it's been shown, because it's shown so rarely. Please see it and make up your own mind.
Um filme maravilhoso e muito bom. Ver Ingrid Bergman e Liza Minnlli junas neste filme o que torna o filme incrvel, Eu acho que este clssico j est dispnvel em DVD e fiquei chocada do filme no estar no acervo de filmes do TCM. isto muito frustante. Quem gosta deste filme no se importa em v-lo em VHS.
COLORS OF THIS MOVIE
- william gauslow
Perhaps this is the color version of Sunset Boulevard. This movie is shot out of focus for a reason I can't explain. Audio and visual are out of sync for some scenes. Such soft colors abound warm throughout. Pinks, roses and reds are in every scene. The sceneplay is bumpy and very centered towards Liza. Perhaps its a good reason to visit Rome. Thank you TCM for showing this movie.
Obscure - and deserves te be.
One of the worst movies ever made! An embarrassment to the Minnellis. Please don't show it again.
