o/t: more Wonders in the Dark romantic countdown . . . with something really special this week!

Five more entries added to this exciting countdown:

61. The Quiet Man (1952)
60. A Place in the Sun (1951)
59. The Philadelphia Story (1940)
58. The Earrings of Madame de… (1953)
57. Lady and the Tramp – Lady in Movieland (a video essay)

That last one is a real  treat! Its creator, Joel Bocko, has produced a compilation of clips from the classic movie that perceptively analyzes — with some very clever editing — the various cinematic genres the Disney animators referenced in their creation of the movie. It’s eight minutes or so of tremendous fun, but illuminating fun; as I watched it I realized that the same consideration could be brought to bear on most if not all of Disney’s golden age animated features. I just wished that I’d had access to this piece back in the 1980s and 1990s when I was working on the various editions of my Encyclopedia of Walt Disney’s Animated Characters!

Anyway, I do urge you to go see Lady in Movieland, as Bocko has called the piece. Here’s the link again.
