* The priest's speech in the pit
* "I couldda been a contender" speech by Brando
Truly wonderful film and now I *get* the Brando-hype.
Watching some of Brando and Mutiny on the Bounty last evening. Both
enjoyable, Brando or Gibson. Hadn't noticed the ending, though, that
Brando dies, and don't recall that being course with Mel -- happier, I
suppose, after burning the ship, on a note to disclose the original
crew are ancestral roots to the island population.
Watching Mutiny (1962) last night reminded me once again how marvelous
Bronislau Kaper's score is. Even Rozsa could not have done better.
Fleeing the Nazi's and composing for Jewish producers similarly
expatriated in Paris, Lazar Mayer offered him pretty much a life long
contract in Beverly Hills. You know, to the best of my recollection,
I can't remember his theme score to the F.B.I. television series;-
surely, though, it'd come to me in a flash if I ever heard it again.
Good ol' Efrem Zimbalist.
Deine Schritte kennt sie, deinen zieren Gang
Alle Abend brennt sie, mich vergass sie lanp
Und sollte mir ein Leids geschehn,
Wer wird bei der Laterne stehn,
Mit dir Lili Marleen, mit dir Lili Marleen?
