Movie Clip Wednesday:New York, New York
Are ya kiddin' folks??? Gracious, how does one choose??
Our indefatigable hostess, Joanna Cake has provided us a very fine theme, New York New York.
Rear Window, Hitchcock's creepy voyeuristic examination of our curiosity about others..Grace Kelly and Jimmy Stewart? How could ya miss? But...the scenery is too confined to git a real NYC feel to it.
Marjorie Morningstar, a coming of age favorite wif' Nathalie Wood...
The musical WestSide Story...mayhap a blog jinx there...
Manchurian Candidate! Yeah--uh, wait...if the K9 plays it'll be a blog jinx too.
Or, a mystery? The Thin Man, hmmmn?
I know! Superman--Gotham city--or BATMAN!.......Is King Kong too obvious? mebbe this is whar' I oughta take it...Godzilla? X-Men?
But, what about some existential angst? Midnight Cowboy?
Believable evil in bidness center of the world, The Devil's Advocate wif' Pacino? Or jes' go straight to the Godfathers three?
Could throw in a sweet unexpected Christmas movie, Miracle on 34th Street...
But in the end, I'se goin' wif an all time favorite for ladies of a certain age--when I first seen this movie I was sheltered enough not to catch the, ah, profession of the charmin' lady lead. An' now ya know, an' if thar's a blog jinx, well, I unnerstan....but the early mornin' view of New York, the bittersweet truths, the regrets we must leave behind in order to move on--an the music. This short clip captures all that.
