Christmas holiday shoppers, you’ve still got a week to go! So, this week on StudiosCentral, I’ve put together a list of gift ideas for the Studios fan. One sample:
Footlight Parade: Sure, you’ve rolled by those motionless audio-animatronics for years in The Great Movie Ride, but have you actually seen the film? It’s a Busy Berkeley tour de force! Plus, being made shortly before the Hays Code means that certain plotlines and jokes are surprisingly edgy.
And while we’re at it . . .here’s the trailer for Footlight Parade:
“As long as they’ve got sidewalks, you’ve got a job!” Whoa. Makes me want to go back and re-watch Golddiggers of 1933.
And what is up with my fascination with the Hays Code, anyway? Clearly next time I go back to graduate school, I’ve got to find a topic for a Masters thesis that really lets me dig into that.
