TAKING A WALK ON THE FILMIC SIDE, TRANSITING THE VINTAGE ROADS.
It's so nice to see how Jake is interested in a baby - good for Gylly-clan future, it's awesome how Jake and Peter "control" the babyI really love those clan days
I think that's a baby in there all right -- the way Peter holds his hands in that protective manner! It's a gesture many mommies and daddies will recognize!
how can the baby breath in there?
^^Ramona is maybe a superbaby, but still I'm a little worried as you. It can be healthy to "paparazzi freedom", but not to Ramona.
Peter looks like a flasher here...lol
Kendra, OT but a fun early 30's 7:50 min Betty Boop cartoon clip "Stopping the Show" on Youtube :)
Awww, Simon, this type of vintage cartoons is so naïve: Betty Boop dressed with an Indian feathers "tocado" is priceless. Max Fleischer, creator of these cartoons, was a pioneer and invented Betty Boop, Koko the Clown and Popeye characters.Born to a Jewish family in Kraków, Fleischer had the idea of using frames of a live action film as the basis for drawing animation, his patent for the rotoscope was granted in 1917, although Max and Dave Fleischer made their first cartoon using the device in 1915.
"Born to a Jewish family in Kraków"hey, people,...this is the place where i live ...my hometown, actually
In some ways those early cartoons are less naïve , note how they parody the conventional movie going experience of the day, with the "newsreel" that sort of mocks the stuffy ship launchings, politicians etc!I like her impersonations of famous singers of the time...I get a kick when she talks to the Maurice Chevalier poster...and he tells her to go out and do it ...in that french voice of his..(too cute!)That's how I found this looking up Maurice Chevalier on Youtube...I think these cartoons were designed to entertain the adults and the children taken to the movies...and succeeds in both!So much children's fare now is preachy, fantasy and total or escape.
...my hometown, actually It must be a nice city, jacknastygirl ;)
really nice but perfectly boring hahahathe most exciting time was when Spielberg came to make "Schindler's List" - and I saw him a few times (I was an extra there)
The point is that one of our kings - Kazimierz the Great fouded the special city for the Jews (it was in XIV)...and that's why so many of them origins from here. And recently some people started to rebuild, renovate the jewish quartierand there is soooo nice atmosphere nowso when guys from Hollywood came here to make "Schindler's List" they had original streets and buildings It was so nice times. Liam Neeson was very like a movie-star
(I was an extra there) Liam Neeson was very like a movie-starWhat?? Did you really appeared in this historic "Schindler list" Spielberg dark "epopeya", jng? How didn't I know any of this? Liam Neeson was very attractive by those days in his characterization of Oskar Schindler. You are very fortunate, Jng, thanks for sharing!
That's how Bette Midler got her start. She was an extra in the 1966 movie Hawaii.You can even she her in some scenes.
Old Bette Midler! I haven't got over her perf in "The Rose" (1979) as Mary Jane/Janis Joplin clone, am I the only who thinks she has a resemblance with scum-doll Courtney Love?
hey, I can tell you more...I was na extra and have seen Mr. Spielberg very good because I have always run to that wagoon where he was filming. (It was that scene when women go to the train) He always stood behind the camera and was very concentrated, focused, very quite, so professional. He had some quote of Ernest Hamingway written on the piece of paper put on his camera. Something about creativity. It was so nice because I have stood behind his back two times ( the shoot was repeated ten times)- it's kinda stupid but I was very young those times. I have seen also Mr. Ben Kingsley who was really modest and the most of the crew - Janusz Kaminski was responsible for the cameraand the most amazing thing is that I managed to meet one of the members of this elite, Ron Judkinshe was even on the party at my place, It was so wierd...don't you think?The story is incredibly amazing - I was on the vernissage and this was the vernissage of one of my friends. And the tradition was to go party to my place - so everyone go with us - and accidentaly there was also Ron - the guy who worked for Spielberg. He was lonely and lost so we just took him to my apartment and felt responsible - so I started to talk with him - and he was so impressed by my knowledge about Hollywood - haha - that he promised me to send me one book from LA - and he really came one year later with this book. It was "Naked Lunch".
My head is gyrating in awe, jacknastygirl, I have always felt a fetish to all things Hollywood, specially places where they were shooting films, it's so atmospheric reading these tales/stories as yours of people who have worked with vastly idealized directors, in this case Steven Spielberg, one of the main Midas of cinema industry and getting so close to him -delighted of Hemingway's quote on camera- I'm not as jealous of you as admired of the whole situation, it had to be prodigious talking first hand to one of his entourage, Ron Judkins seems a funny down-to-earth guy (I mean, "Naked Lunch" by William Burroughs is the type of book you lend a friend, not the most conventional reading) Did you watch "Naked Lunch" the film by David Cronenberg?, he did an impressively disturbing movie again: Interzone as the underground reality where some of us get lost, far superior to "Beat" (2000) -another film about Burroughs-.So I'll have to rewatch with full attention the scene of wagon in "The Schindler List"... Waiting for your next cinematic accounts -always a pleasure- in Jake Weird, jacknastygirl ;)
Hey, Kendra I have found this site to give you some impression about Ronhttp://www.sonosax.ch/APPLICATIONS/congo.htmlWe were talkink about movies and I started to talk that I have seen "Naked Lunch" and he said that he worked on the set of "Drugstore cowboy" and had an opportunity to talk with William Burroughs - that's why he gave me this book, but I was surprised that he remembered!
Poor man, after reading Ron Judkins' adventures during the filming of "Congo" I haven't able to help thinking of the funny anecdotes he must tell you. I know "Congo" is based on Michael Crichton novel, and same as "Jurassic Park", the results translated to screen didn't seem to me convincing enough, worse in "Congo" despite of charismatic Laura Linney in the lead role, curious that "Congo" director, Frank Marshall will be the responsible to make "Untitled Lance Armstrong Project" (2007).About "Drugstore cowboy", I liked it pretty much in its premise, very good the part in which William S. Burroughs, the "addiction philosopher", gives Matt Dillon's character that wise chat about nature of addiction (need of controlling routine life chaos). I bet it wasn't hard for Ron to remember you, jacknastygirl!
Reposting two of the links (both films directed by Frank Marhsall):"Congo" (1995) and"Untitled Lance Armstrong Project" (2007), btw, I'm somehow relieved Jake finally hasn't been casted in this bike-biopic.
