Re: Are classic musicals marred by dubbing revelations

Sandy-I think you're right about Debbie. It's a bit confusing however, as to which numbers Debbie sang and what she didn't. I think she was still dubbed when dubbing Lena Lamont. In Natalie's case, I just thought her voice sounded okay on her recordings of Maria's songs Wendy-What that doc said was ...

Are classic musicals marred by dubbing revelations

Spoiler It's been long known that many actors/actresses have been dubbed while performing in musicals, but some where well kept secrets such as Christopher Plummer in The Sound Of Music. The BBC recently did a documenatry on the subject I'm not sure Singing In The Rain will mean the same to me after...

Garland and Presley links

IMO humble opinion Judy Garland and Elvis Presley were the 2 best concert entertainers of the 20th Century and its a pity they never worked together, as they also admired each other. However, both their lives seem to link up in many ways. When Judy was in the middleof her tv series, Jack Kennedy was...

Last Tango In Halifax 2nd season

I suppose my favorite drama on UK tv of late has been Last Tango In Halifax with Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid as 2 70 somethings who fall in love and get married, having been reunited on Facebook, after many years apart. Reid's character Celia has some great, if stinging one liners in the show, while ...

Re: Duel in the Sun

I like Duel In The Sun as well and the great Lillian Gish, of the silent era, has a lot to do with it. It was her comeback movie and IMO her's is the performance of the film. I thought her death scene was both laughable and brilliant at the same time. Laughable because why was her wheelchair bound h...

Ronnie Biggs dies on day of premier of Train Robbery movie

It's ironic that Great Train Robber, Ronnie Biggs, who went on the run for 40-yrs, died on the day the 2 part premier of The Great Train Roberry. Part one is called A Robbers Tale, next week it's A Coppers Tale, as we see the story from both the criminals and Police points of view.

Re: Idol On Parade

Tony seemed to have a bit of a double act going with Bernie Winters in at least 3 films. Yet Bernie was already a double act partner of his brother Mike. I don't think Tony got the credit he deserved in the UK, unlike in America. As a song writer of lyrics he should at the very least be compared to ...
