All About Eve - the dialogue - she sparkles, eys. And Bette's performance is peerless. As for Eternity, other than the hot beach scene with Deborah and Burt, I don't get it.

Same question but these films:
Casablanca
or
Citizen Kane?

I like some of the dialogue and several of the performances. I just don't think it's that clever or deep or illuminating of anything about the theater apart from the fact that Equity has long been a union with clout.

Citizen Kane, though I don't suppose there's any need to feel ashamed for not loving it. As Molly Haskell pointed out, Casablanca is pretty cozily ensconced in an adolescent zone of easy choices. Also, I'd always just assumed that a Thirties leftist, whatever his or her race, social position, or hypocrisies, would've known to inquire about that man at the piano.

Rope or Strangers on a Train?

:yawn: Minus the crack about Equity--which was clumsy, as that didn't cover Birdie's reference to the wardrobe lady, which is what you were thinking of--you've said all of that before. :throws a rotting artichoke in f_d's direction:

Strangers on a Train

a shot-stabbed-garroted-or-drowned entry :2faced::

M'Lynn, Ouiser, Clairee, or Truvy?

Truvy? :slinkaway

movies "inspired" by true stories:

127 Hours - a young man must amputate his own hand to save his life
Conviction - a single mother puts herself through law school to help her imprisoned brother.
Texas Killing Fields - based on the I-45 series of murders in Texas
Soul Surfer - a young girl readjusts to life after a shark attack costs her an arm.
The Soloist - based on the life of talented but mentally ill musician Nathaniel Ayers.
Young Victoria - about the early life of QUeen Victoria
The Blind Side - a young man's journey from homelessness to the NFL.
Invictus - Nelson Mandela is now president of S. Africa and wants to bring his country together through sports.
Into The Wild - based on the antics of well meaning but tragically mistaken Christopher McCandless.

Seriously, I'm tired of the craptastic programs he's been doing for his students. :wall:

Pasquale Camerlengo, Shae-Lynn Bourne and whoever choreographs Lepistö's programs. :D

Suzuki's new SP (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zVbJapmAJA): yay or nay?

Same here. A skater of Ando's caliber can sell a jumping clinic, but that hardly recommends the choreographer to anyone. Also, I can't stand what he's doing to La Perkova.

Yay. :)

Should this thread apply for ISU membership? That way, Suzuki, Abbott, and a number of deserving others can get to Worlds much more easily.

eys
non
purple :rolleyes:
purple implausible and unnecessary; they won't need a guaranteed spot in order to :kickass:

hehehe Sure go for it! hehehehe

Dr. Ralph Steinman has been awarded the nobel prize for medicine. Unfortunately the Nobel committee was unaware at the time that he has since past on some 3 days now. It has a strict no posthumous awards. Should he still receive that prize?

YES
or
NO

Yes.

I wish that Miki would leave Nikolai. Do you agree?

Yes
No

Honestly I just do not know but I will support my fellow TOTOTer and say yes. :D

here is a list of people who were award/nominated for the nobel prize but were not allowed for political reasons to accept.

Ghandi - nominated five times and always denied
Liu Xiaobo - awarded the peace prize but never allowed to receive it
Boris Pasternak - awared but forced to decline by the Soviet Union
Sergei Korolev - father of the Soviet Space Program, award recined when Soviets refused to release his name.
