I am in the habit of playing old movies in the background as I work. There is just enough noise to keep me productive, but since I can basically recite them all I don’t get distracted enough to stop and watch.
Royal Wedding is showing behind me today and I just had to share with you the scene where Fred Astaire dances on the ceiling.
The room was mounted and rotatable as they filmed. It’s one of those things that, if it happened today, would have so much YouTube footage of the contraption. However, since it wasn’t filmed today, we have to make do with representations.
Also, if anyone tried to remake this I would go see it.
