Musical Films Of 1927

The Jazz Singer released October 6, starring Al Jolson.

Musical Films Of 1927 has only one musical movie and that is The Jazz Singer, in fact it’s the very first talkie and since I’m typing you about it, it’s also the first musical move. In 1927, only one film was a musical, and that’s The Jazz Singer. From the beginning of the movie industry, 1927 was the first year that had music in it which is still talked about today. It’s still a silent movie, so I’m sure you might not want to read the subtitles, but then I watch foreign movies so silent movies is just the same. The story is dated and it moves slow, but I still had to buy the album, because this website will have an album on each blog I do...

Musical Films Of 1932

This blog is all about musical films of 1932, now I’m not much into Musicals, but to talk about my second favorite topic on this (my website), which is music. So I have to type about music as well, or start another website (now there’s a thought), but their are some Musicals that I do like. Their aren’t on every year, nor not all are worth watching twice. Maybe, it’s because, their really one and the same movie, I mean, it’s girl meet boy, and try to win him in the end, with songs just added in to make you feel better about yourself and sell more tickets and more 78’s. For those that don’t know what 78’s are, I think it’s about time I should type you about it, but not here. This blog is about Musical Films Of 1932, and not how fast a single was...

Musical Films Of 1931

As much as I love music, I also love film, so for every year I’m on, I’ll be texting you about my favorite film that has a soundtrack  even though I prefer action and comedy, they don’t have a soundtrack, and I’m not going to break my rules for my selfish interests. If I wanted to text about Films, I should have started one, and not have it on my website, however, other interest I have does have music in it, so I’ll be adding them to my website, when the time is right.

Some years, I may not like any of them, so some of my blogs won’t mean a thing, but others will have plenty of meaning, so here’s what was shown in 1931, and I only like one of them, which I didn’t know was made in 1931, so even I am learning as I go.

Walt Disney’s Bambi

Walt Disney’s Bambi

I been trying not to text about this film, because it’s really not a musical, but I’m the one that making the rules, and I can break them also. However, Walt Disney’s Bambi does have a soundtrack album, so it does match up with my topic of my website, so now is a perfect time to texted about Walt Disney’s Bambi. This film was released on 1942, and since my website is now about music of 1915 to 1944, this film will be one more text about on my website. Two for two of my  requirements for being on my website. The third and last rule is that I like it, well that’s a hard one to text about. For years I didn’t want to see Walt Disney’s Bambi, because what happened to his dad, but now that I’m wiser, I can watch it without guilt.

I bought it from iTunes, because YouTube can’...

Legacy
The off-screen villain “Man” has been placed No. 20 on AFI’s List of Heroes and Villains.
Some critics have cited parallels between Frank Churchill’s theme music for “Man” (which consisted of 3 simple notes) and John Williams’s theme music in Jaws (which consists of two notes).
Former Beatle Paul McCartney has credited the shooting death of Bambi’s mother for his initial interest in animal rights.
Soon after the film’s release, Walt Disney allowed his characters to appear in fire prevention public service campaigns. However, Bambi was only loaned to the government for a year, so a new symbol was needed, leading to the creation of Smokey Bear...

Writing
There were many interpretations of the story. As Mel Shaw claimed

The story of Bambi had a so many possibilities, you could go off on a million tangents. I remember one situation when Walt became involved with himself. He said ‘Suppose we have Bambi step on an ant hill and we cut inside and see all the damage he’s done to the ant civilization’. We spent weeks and weeks developing the ants, and then all of a sudden we decided, you know, we’re way off the story, this has got nothing to do with the story of Bambi. We also had a family of grasshoppers, and they get into a family squabble of this or that, and Bambi is watching all of this, and here’s the big head of Bambi in the grasshoppers. And what’s that got to do with the story, and this would go on many times.
