« Poem: "Surf And Turf" (by Mitch Sisskind) | Main | Movie Moments - Telefon (1977) »

June 27, 2008


The Bandwagon is my favorite musical of all time. Great dark smart moody Minnelli. Astaire is a genius; Cyd Charisse has long been too hot to be appreciated enough; Fabray and Levant are hilarious; and Jack Buchanon completely astounded me. I think I underwent subtle genetic alteration having seen the Triplets scene at perhaps too early an age; if I did, it was for the better. Long live Cyd! And all of us.

Marvelous score by Schwartz and Dietz, and yes, Cyd's legs do go on forever. Did you know she was married to the same man (singer Tony Martin)for sixty years -- from 1948 until her death? Lucky guy.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

in the corner

in the dark
