Hmm, Natalie Dormer vs Hayley Atwell - there's a catfight I would pay good money to see.

When I saw this one in the cinema, the crowd burst into applause when they said "All 13" and Capaldi's eyes appeared. 

(Other applause moments: When Tennant appeared on screen, and Holy S**t Tom! Tom! Tom! - okay, that last one was what I was tweeting when watching on TV, but the crowd did burst into applause.)

IIRC, Ginger is quite a bit "thicker" in the early 30s WB musicals. She's lost a lot of weight by now, and she certainly looks fantastic. 

Young Ann Miller -- I always think of her as Essie Carmichael from those days. 

I adore this film.

What's with the costumes? Was it July 4? Or was the main guest Paul Revere & the Raiders?

Mary so cute. Love her sister's smile, too. ,

I have seen My Fair Lady a zillion times, and so I had a hard time at first accepting Leslie Howard and Wendy Hiller as Higgins and Eliza. But about the time that she comes to his house to buy lessons, I was sold. Leslie Howard is terrific as the self-absorbed professor who bulldozes everyone in his path but thinks he is treating all people fairly. So nice to see him play something other than Ashley Wilkes. Hiller acts suitably cockney, and she transforms into a lovely Miss Doolittle. She's tall and regal and has lovely high cheekbones. Her expressions communicate fear, anguish, humor, and eventually love. She's a terrific actress, and I had to turn the TV down when she was screaming about the bath lest my neighbors think I was performing violence on some poor woman.

Good gracious! I have never seen her look more beautiful!

And she just crushes this performance. Terrific.

He said "Charley" on screen! On official video. 

That makes her canon!

+Derrick Mims Yep, that was my reaction, too. Equally so for Lucie - absolutely adored her and Eight together.

Like if you're watching this video in 2015. 

Haha, just kidding. :-D

I have been an Ellie Powell fan ever since the first time I watched BROADWAY MELODY OF 1940. She's one of my absolute favorite dancers. Glad to see this clip is still online, 7 years after it was uploaded.

What a superb upload! Thanks for including all the details. I own the 2-disc Anthology plus a handful of other songs, but this is a great way to get it all in the proper order.

Good lord, is he plastered off his arse during Eliza's first visit to Mrs. Higgins's home? It's really embarrassing to watch.

Is this the same piece of music as the dance in the animated version? 

It's not on this clip, but I love when he puts his hand on her back, and she does that little "Oh".

Story
Tagline
I am Me, but I am not yet the Me I want to Be.
Introduction
In the past, I have defined myself by the description below. But as I near age 40, I realize that aiming for those things alone has made me 200+ pounds overweight, homebound, and socially inept. So I have started working towards becoming a new Me -- the Me I should have become decades ago. 

My current focus is fitness, nutrition, and personal growth. I still like the 'geeky' stuff, but I am working on finding perspective. :-D

When I get down to 350, I plan to start Grappling again. There're a lot of great BJJ schools in Denver. I am currently working out at Title Boxing Club in Thornton, CO.

_____________________

The music nerds in "High Fidelity" say that we are defined by what we like. Is it true? If so, then I am:

  • Comics.
  • Books.
  • History.
  • Doctor Who.
  • Star Trek.
  • Classic Film.
  • TV.
  • Self-improvement.
  • Hair Bands.
  • Rasslin.
  • Politics.

Good times. I am basically a supergeek with delusions of being cool. I like a little bit of everything. I'll listen to Lady Gaga and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Or Kellie Pickler and Kristin Chenoweth. I love sappy romantic comedies as well as mindless explosions. Lately, I am obsessed with stand-up comedy.
Bragging rights
Yesterday, I did more barbell squats than the workout before. Tomorrow, I will do even more.
