The music man august To catch the gaslight all about eve all those good old you know those are great. Singing is my wife's favorite movie. I rented a theater for a big birthday for her into. Oh gosh every number is a showstopper. It's absolutely wonderful to watch. I i love this show. Kip stopping know. Assure a metaphorical showstopper paula. The concession stand must've been going crazy when that was in the theater. Did you see it in the theater. Carol yes i'm that old. Debbie reynolds was you know. She was in it and she was. I think nineteen or twenty years old when she made that movie and she was a year older than i am and so I was eighteen. So i saw the movie in the theater. But then we have it here and it's just like a ritual. I watch it every year and holds up so great. It's it's wonderful. I recommend it to anybody who can get it. You know and of course it's a wonderful life with that was stewart's favorite movie and it was frank kaffir favorite movie. Yeah wonderful lot and it bombed when it first came out really. Yep yep and then what happened was it became a cult classic every christmas. And so then it just you know and it caught on but when it first came out it didn't do well at all. I'm a moving forgiving me. Why have a fantastic piece of trivia that my wife tells me almost on an annual basis when we watched the movie with their kids which is while filming the conic singing in the rain number out in the rain. jeanne. Kelly had one hundred and three fever. Yes yes you knew that he did. I've met him years ago and we talked about that. I was at some function that he where he was. And i said that was just the greatest number and he said that he was so sick when they were doing it but he had to do it because it was all set up with the you know the rain and this and that and yeah and so maybe that's why his eyes are kind of shiny and then of course donald o'connor doing make them laugh. I mean he knocked himself out for that one and then when it was finished he had to take two weeks off to rest up really why because he had one hundred and four degree temperature and he was very This is little known trivia. Carol that they might not have told you. Donald o'connor was very jealous of gene. Kelly and so he purposely got himself a higher fever together though he was he was so jealous of gene kelly that after they finished shooting the singing in the rain number. Donald o'connor went out there to the street set and licked every lamppost. Gene kelly tucked. That's that's that's a rumor that might be true. I'm sure and then. Of course the wonderful. Jean hagen who was the billinness in the movie was so fun favorite in the whole thing i. She's like the unsung hero of the film which she was doing. I remember when robert. Mueller wouldn't testify. Wouldn't testify wouldn't testify yes. I was almost certain that when he finally went to testify he was gonna say. I can't stand it. I thought for sure he was just ashamed of his voice. Yes exactly yeah. Like he was he was going to sit down and go. Yeah go he russians. Oh.
