Life And Times Of Irving Berlin Part Two

I know you might have been waiting for Life And Times Of Irving Berlin Part Two, but I wanted to show you the many other performers that I like first before I do their biology all at once and on the same week as I have before and don’t worry, I’ll be doing my other favorites before I bring more on my website.

You may or may not like Irving Berlin, but you can’t deny that he had a 60 years career and that’s something no other performers can say specially the ones from today.

Alexand’s Ragtime Band

“Alexander’s Ragtime Band” sparked an international dance craze in places as far away as Berlin’s native Russia, which also “flung itself into the ragtime beat with an abandon bordering on mania...

Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs

Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs

I’m sorry having to pay for my first film, The Wizard Of Oz, but I needed video on my website and YouTube gave me no exceptions, for the payment of Of the film, but their is video none the less, so I’m happy. I could buy the film, but I already have it in DVD and iTunes, but I wanted to have it more for entertainment than information, like others do, so I’ll have to try something else and give it a try.

Until I find a way to get more films on my website without having to use iTunes, until then, I’m going to continue with my attempt to let you see something on my website that others don’t have.

Which brings me to my next film, I’ve been asking the people who are hanging my website, for more space to upload my iTunes on my website, but that’s not going to happ...

Memphis Mafia

In the early 1960s, the circle of friends with whom Presley constantly surrounded himself until his death came to be known as the “Memphis Mafia”. “Surrounded by the[ir] parasitic presence”, as journalist John Harris puts it, “it was no wonder that as he slid into addiction and torpor, no-one raised the alarm: to them, Elvis was the bank, and it had to remain open.” Tony Brown, who played piano for Presley regularly in the last two years of the singer’s life, observed his rapidly declining health and the urgent need to address it: “But we all knew it was hopeless because Elvis was surrounded by that little circle of people … all those so-called friends”...

Sex symbol
“Film poster with Presley on the left, holding a young woman around the waist, her arms draped over his shoulders. To the right, five young women wearing bathing suits and holding guitars stand in a row. The one in front taps Presley on the shoulder. Along with title and credits is the tagline "Climb aboard your dreamboat for the fastest-movin’ fun ‘n’ music!”


The title and marketing of Girls! Girls! Girls! (1962) took advantage of Presley’s sex symbol status.
Presley’s physical attractiveness and sexual appeal were widely acknowledged. “He was once beautiful, astonishingly beautiful”, in the words of critic Mark Feeney...

Vocal style and range
The general development of Presley’s voice is described by critic Dave Marsh as “high and thrilled in the early days, lower and perplexed in the final months.” Marsh credits Presley with the introduction of the “vocal stutter” on 1955’s “Baby Let’s Play House.” When on “Don’t Be Cruel” Presley “slides into a ‘mmmmm’ that marks the transition between the first two verses,” he shows “how masterful his relaxed style really is.” Marsh describes the singing on “Can’t Help Falling in Love” to be of “gentle insistence and delicacy of phrasing,” with the line “‘Shall I stay'” pronounced as if the words are fragile as crystal...

Animation

The famous “Heigh-Ho” sequence from Snow White was animated by Shamus Culhane.
The primary authority on the design of the film was concept artist Albert Hurter. All designs used in the film, from characters’ appearances to the look of the rocks in the background, had to meet Hurter’s approval before being finalized. Two other concept artists — Ferdinand Hovarth and Gustaf Tenggren — also contributed to the visual style of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Hovarth developed a number of dark concepts for the film, although many other designs he developed were ultimately rejected by the Disney team as less easily translated into animation than Hurter’s...
