To celebrate my entry into my fifties, we have been watching musicals:
“De-Lovely”, 2004, with Kevin Kline, Ashley Judd, directed by Irwin Winkler. Musical based on the life of Cole Porter. Wonderful movie with great music. It is not exactly cheerful, but I don’t always like cheerful.
“Guys and Dolls”, 1955, with Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Musical based on Damon Runyon’s Manhattan short stories. Fabulous music and you get to see Marlon Brando sing and dance!
“Damn Yankees”, 1958, with Tab Hunter, Gwen Verdon, directed by George Abbott. We are half way thru this one. It is one of Steve’s favorites, but I had not seen it before. All about baseball and selling your soul to the devil to win.
When we get to Kauai, we will watch “South Pacific”, because it was filmed there. Another on our list, our old favorite “Rocky Horror Picture Show”.
