Ok, so here are my TPS caps for you, Alyssa! Sorry it took so long! I've just been so busy with school that I sort of forgot. First week of going back to college is hectic. But I had some free time so I remembered! I tried to take as many angles of the dress as I could. Anyway, I took a bunch because I was having fun with it haha. Here's a few and then I have an album you can look at! These caps are for anyone to use, so if anyone wants to use them for icons, etc. feel free!
Isn't it funny that my hands-down, when-push-comes-to-shove favorite moment from TPS is this little number by the pond? For all the biting wit and snark in the script that I've had commited to memory for....years now, I end up pickin' a shot that has zip dialogue. But! But! There IS dialogue! And it's coming from the radio that's practically singing Franz Waxman's score! Which, incidentally, I've been looking for that piece for ages now and still can't even find a name for it. 'Spose it doesn't have one. Just "Oh Look, Tracy And Mike Are Smashed And Oh Emm Gee Kate Is So Pretty And Oops Watch Your Step Guys Heee Ya'll Are Naughty" by Franz Waxman. You know that's the official title. Anyway, that little diddy describes the scene beautifully. I remember some obscure guest-programmer on TCM remarking that he thought TPS was delicious because "it was almost as if they had filmed it on silk." The proof is in the puddin'......or see for yourselves
....No, wait, I'm so indecisive! Maybe the runner-up moment that tops my list are the shots of Tracy reflected into the swimming pool. Hi, metaphor for Greek goddess, much? And.... THAT doesn't have dialogue. I can't win. My apologies, Phil Barry. Here's a bundt cake for consolation.

I must brag a little. I work at a library and we always get all sorts of donations. A few weeks ago someone brought in a bag of DVD's, some had never been opened. As I was going through the pile I found The Philadelphia Story collectors edition 2 disc set still in the wrapping. I asked my manager if he would let me have it for a small donation towards the Friends of the Library and $3 later I went home happy
feet. my feet are made of clay. toes. moses supposes that toes are roses. oh, well, for all the times i've enjoyed the sweep of this movie and each and every scene .. today i focused in on kate's toes in this scene .. a few images in sequence.
tracy shares her own private joke / mike is incensed.
dexter is distracted by a fine leg, and perhaps the feet.
"What would you have me do? Give out, give up, give in?"
i have just watched this sequence on my laptop with the DVD (rather than HD television with TCM broadcast (non HD) .. and I believe I can say with some semblance of certainty that our Kate's toes are NOT bandaged in this scene. she simply has boney feet. like i do -- i sympathize ..
"What would you have me do? Give out, give up, give in?"
Judy: All has changed on the Proboard....Not sure my reply got posted. Anyway, thanks for the notice, Evelien. I'm unable to access it. I can watch the clip of the woman flipping through the Kate books and talking about fashion - one of which is Rebel Chic :-)

CFK: So we all heard about Betty Bacall, I guess? Pretty rotten news, especially following so closely on Robin Williams. What a lousy week. Watched To Have and Have Not as tribute tonight.

Fran: I think the problem with actresses such as Bette Davis and Joan Crawford was that they played SEX SYMBOLS and did woman movies. They were sexy in their day and were the main love interests in the movie. When they got older those woman type movies were dead

Fran: Bette Davis made very different movies from Katherine Hepburn Hepburn. Bette was sexy. So was Crawford. They made woman type movies. Hepburn was the masculine feminist. When their looks went, so did their careers. Hepburn was never that type.

Angela: Personally, I like Bette Davis best she was "a woman for all season" she didn't mince words she did the role without having to apologize for creativity she musters to do the work. Also, she could look different without worrying about her appearance.

Angela: Personally, I felt Bette Davis was the "woman for all seasons" since she used all her creativity to make her artwork. As for Katherine she seems to sound the same - her voice didn't change. Granted she was good in Shakespeare which I give credit.

SJS: Bette had a mostly latent tendency to ham, and she admitted it. She really appreciated a director who could get her to tone it down. She lost respect for a director who would let her get away with it. But she took chances that most actresses wouldn't.
