Interesting that The Plaza made that list, yet The Fox didn't make the cut.

The Fox was my favorite when I was a kid.

The PLaza was cool on the late sixties, before it became a porn theater.

I have been to a few of those.

Solo? I don't know but it looks to me that Harvey Keitel's lips are moving the same time as yours. :wah:

Well, in the arrangement we do I suppose 'Solo' is a little bit of an exaggeration, but I do have the solo for "Make of our hands one hand. Make of our hearts one heart", then the rest of the choir joins in, softly, with me still dominant, until the final "Only Death will part us now", when it goes into duet, then moves onto the "There's a place for us" finale, which ends on a top 'A', over a long crescendo, until I've really got to belt it out.

We did it on Thursday at a wedding, and it sounded real good in the acoustics of a church.

I have to say that churches are acoustically superior to most music halls. Mosques aren't too bad either. Here's an excellent example:

Call me crazy. Call me mad. Call me a romantic – well, I am that.

Back in the 80's the Danish crown was weak and the Swedish crown was the king of Scandinavia! I used to take the ferry from Malmö to Copenhagen every chance I could get to spend some money. Near the railway station were the prostitutes (No, I didn't!) and lots upon lots of Indo-Paki food shops, restaurants and music boutiques. Walking past one of the music shops I chanced to hear something that made me pause to listen. I went straight in and plunked my cash onto the table. It was the sound-track cassette-tape to the film “Noorie”. I took it home and played it until it broke from the fatigue - and could never be replaced. Sigh! :yh_brokeh

I'm a Romantic Softy at heart too. Love Story always has me in tears. Unlike most films based on books, Love Story remains very true to the original work.

The opening line says it all - "What can you say about a girl who died, except that she was beautiful". In that first sentence you know what the outcome of the story is going to be, but as you get towards the end you find yourself hoping & praying that there's going to be a twist somewhere & that she doesn't die, even though you know from that very first sentence that she does.

A mastery of emotional manipulation.

Excuse me very much - but I must protest. Say what you will about masterly, emotional manipulation, that line is the most Un-romatic there could ever be. Shall I tell you why or can you work it out yourself?

I see it as VERY romantic. As with my solo from West Side Story... "Even Death Won't Part Us Now".

Alright. But I assume you're mortal. Would you really want your eulogy to consist of, "What can you say about her, except that she was beautiful"? "That's it. Close the lid and bury her."

Not me. I'd prefer my loved ones say that I was a good man. A loving husband and father. I'd hope that my "good looks" would be left out of it completely.

I interpret the beauty as not being limited to the physical appearance, and I believe the words of Segal referred to this as well.

No, I don't believe it. He would have said so: Beautiful soul, beautiful person, etc.

Have to admit it. I only saw it once back then but I'm sure if I see it again that I'll have the same "hope & pray" experience!

I watched Electra again this evening. Irene Papas died this week at 96. The film is from 1962 and hasn't aged a bit, it's still as astonishing as when it was made. She was a magnificent actor.

Papas as Electra, in her first film with Cacoyannis, prompted the critic Dilys Powell to exclaim: “I had never thought to see the face of the great Apollo from the Olympia pediment live and move. Now I have seen it.” Roger Ebert, looking back on the Oscar-nominated film 10 years later, said: “The funereal figures of the Greek chorus – poor peasant women scattered on a hillside – still weep behind Electra, and I can never forget her lament for her dead mother. I thought then, and I still think, that Irene Papas is the most classically beautiful woman ever to appear in films.”
