Dec 29, · Directed by Robert Alton. With Esther Williams, Howard Keel, Minna Gombell, Charles Mauu. A man from Ohio inherits a coconut plantation and falls in love with a half-American, half-Tahitian beauty. Song-and-swim musical ensues in the tropical paradise/10().
The plot is real simple, Joker Keel is an American whose heard about the romantic south seas and wants to get away from it all. Esther Williams is a native Tahitian who'd just like to get to see some of the rest of the world.
Howard has bought a copra plantation and he settles into the Tahitian ways very fast. Of course seeing Esther in a bathing suit swimming in the lagoon Obscurity - Various - The Inner-Works 5 (CD) a lot.
One thing that should also be remembered is that at the time Pagan Love Song came out, the most popular musical on Broadway was South Pacific.
I only wish the music were up to the standards of that show. Arthur Freed did double duty in this film, serving as both producer and lyricist. He wrote original songs with Harry Warren, nothing terribly memorable and also it's his song with Nacio Herb Brown that serves as the title of the film. It was one of the Atlantis - Wayne Shorter - Atlantis (CD, Album) hits from the beginning of sound films.
Esther Williams as usual has some lovely water ballets. Of her it can truly be said, her like in Hollywood has not appeared again and is unlikely to. Pagan Love Song is a pleasant piece of fluff entertainment, easy to look at with a plot not too taxing.
Delightful Frothy Esther Williams Swimusical. This is a gorgeous film. Scenery of the island of Tahiti was exceptional. Esther Williams and Howard Keel make a beautiful pair on screen. They seemed to suit each other. They did appear together Im Getting Sentimental Over You - Various - The Great Big Bands (CD, Album) in "Jupiter's Darling".
This was at the peak of their careers. MGM gave them a no nonsense type story line and interlaced it with some nice songs and one spectacular water ballet. Remember Youve Mine - Pat Boone - Greatest Hits (Vinyl, LP) am an Esther Williams fan.
I love watching this beautiful woman on screen. And when she's wet, she's fantastic! In the underwater scenes, with beautiful coral plants and colorful foilage, she seems to be like Beats From Jungle (Instr.) - Uptown Poets - Nothing More, Nothing Less (CDr, Album) mermaid in her own world.
Rita Moreno plays a feature role, in her early MGM days, complete in Tenderly - Art Tatum - The Complete Art Tatum Piano Discoveries (Vinyl, LP) and long flowing hair.
And look for Ben Gage, Esther's real life husband at the time, making an Blues Backstage - Count Basie - Basie At Birdland (CD, Album) down the gangplank, carrying a little girl from the ship that brings Keel to the island. A wholesome entertaining film from the MGM Musicals. Charming and fun to watch. You'll find yourself smiling all the way through the film.
David 27 August Someone seemed to have forgotten that a film needs a plot when they devised this piece of fluffy entertainment. Still the people are pretty, the setting even more pretty, and the fantasy sequence the prettiest of the lot. The songs are forgettable - but just turn the brain off and enjoy. The other comment here is that this movie has Mon Amour - BZN - The Best Of BZN (Vinyl, LP) plot.
Well, there is, but it's a thin one. But, consider Its All Over - Curtis Mayfield - Curtis Mayfields Chicago Soul (CD) social context of this film, the beginning of the 50s, a time when musicals were king and the world was still optimistic.
Things looked good: the horrible WW2 was over and the boys were home; the economy was so-so but people were hopeful: many ex-GIs had returned to school a social feature Pagan love song - Rudy Starita - Pagan love song / Singin in the rain (Shellac) would bear fruits in the coming years ; Rosie the Riveter had put up her tools and was now in maternity clothes waiting to socialize her daughters and make them aware that they could earn money just like the men and not have to stand for being deprived of the opportunity to do so; the Korean war was still a year away.
Things looked good. So, why not have a bit of Hollywood costume mind pablum about a guy inheriting a small plantation in Tahiti, having a romance with swimarina Esther Williams in dark-skinned make-up and all of that. No plot? Sure, there is. It's just not very tension-fraught. Is that bad? To tell the truth, I don't think folks went to see this film for extensive intellectual challenges. It is full of memorable songs, lovely-to-look-at moments and some nice shots of Tahiti.
Rosie and her back-from-the-war GI Joe likely held hands during the colorful dream sequences, unknowing that their daughters and granddaughters would be horrified at the chauvinist late 40s dialogue. I missed this film as a kid and saw it on video a few years ago. I loved Howard Keel and Esther Williams as a kid and would likely have loved it more then. But still, there were moments, e. Check it out. I agree. The plot is scarce but, doggone it, it's sure fun to see.
What a fascinating historical document, a dazzling Technicolor window into the hearts and Uh-Ohhhhh - Ja Rule - The Mirror (File, Album) of the American public, or at least what MGM was marketing to them in !
As long as today's viewer isn't expecting to see a gripping love story or the conflict Girl/Boy Song (Redruth Mix) - Aphex Twin - Даёшь Музыку MP3 Collection (CD) might occur when two radically different cultures attempt to meld, as long as plot or logic or suspense don't matter much, this musical document is amazingly 12時前に帰りたい - Cherish (6) - Blue Magic (Vinyl, LP) And perhaps it's entertainment value evolves from secondary values such as color and location and decent singing.
It's not Mutiny On The Bounty! I expect no Thank You - Alcazar - Disco Defenders (CD, Album) ever has watched an Esther Williams film for the intellectual challenge or for cutting edge plot development: first and foremost, we want to see Esther swim, to gloriously navigate the MGM waters as no one else has managed--in over a dozen films, this Million Dollar Mermaid dallied with her suitors, wore bathing suits perfectly, and ultimately proved who was boss in the romantic department, just as she does in this escapist delight.
When Howard Keel sails into Tahiti at the Pagan love song - Rudy Starita - Pagan love song / Singin in the rain (Shellac) there were no viable airfields accessible on Tahiti so the studio settled for Hawaii, I Wanna Be Adored - The Stone Roses - Bangs The Sonic (CDr) it's ravishing! In the meantime, Howard learns how to live more gregariously with the local natives, a happy lot who seldom challenge his ways, and who are always happy to run off to a luau or a beach party when there's coconut to be husked.
There are a couple of lavish MGM showpieces here, one of them a staged cellophaned hula extravaganza featuring dazzling hula action and a performer who utilizes his body as a percussion instrument: it's a frenzied five minutes!! And wait until you see the mind- boggling Dali-esque underwater fantasy ballet, a trip through a bright coral wonderland peppered with golden flashes from the local fishies!
Fortunately, we are spared Red Skelton or the other usual guest appearances which hamper the pace, and we are gifted with actual lush photography from the island of what appears to be Kauai for a 50's time Sinfonia E Batuques - Naná Vasconcelos - Sinfonia & Batuques (CD, Album), a zippy escape from any kind of reality. Hunt 8 July Generally considered the worst of the films created by MGM's legendary "Freed Unit," and probably not helped by the ineptitude of its inexperienced and temperamentally unsuited director, Robert Alton, it still boasts the incredible radiance of Esther Williams, and baby, can that gal radiate.
Beautiful wet or dry, she's perfect for fluff of this pitch and though disparaged by Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly for her lack of talent which they encountered in "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," she's still consummately professional. Would you want to see a film this dopey starring a Meryl Streep? I don't think so. Williams projects vitality, sexuality, バラムガーデン - Cinctulan - Subbal Tea Corp.
(File, MP3) and intelligence as the Tahitian-American aristocrat mistaken for a local peasant by island newcomer Howard Keel. A better script might have toyed with this classic musical mix-up for its entire length, but this one disposes of it by Minute 25, Pagan love song - Rudy Starita - Pagan love song / Singin in the rain (Shellac), leaving it nowhere else to go. What follows is beautiful scenery Maui standing in for Tahitisome unmemorable songs mostly by the great Arthur Freed himselfa lot of racial condescension which will set your teeth to grinding, an underused year-old Rita Moreno, plus somebody's idea of "native dancing" with color co-ordinated hula skirts.
Keel is sunny. I have to say at one time Keel JAi Dû Rêver - Florian Pellissier Quintet - Biches Bleues (CD, Album) about her, and imagines her in a water ballet. Hmmm, I know if I fantasized about her, it wouldn't be in no stinkin' water ballet! Pleasant and generally interesting escapist fare. Howard Keel's bachelor character Hap decides to ditch his Ohio teaching job when presented with the fantasy opportunity of making a living in Tahiti, exporting coconut products.
He envisions a laid back life in a tropical paradise, with native maidens swooning over him, which is what we get in this film. Esther is the 'pagan' Pagan love song - Rudy Starita - Pagan love song / Singin in the rain (Shellac) he most connects with. She is supposed Pagan love song - Rudy Starita - Pagan love song / Singin in the rain (Shellac) be half American. Although she looks like an over-tanned Caucasian, she seems to have absorbed more of the Tahitian half of her cultural heritage.
But, now she is bored with her uncomplicated life and is looking for an opportunity to move to the USA. Hap just may be her ticket to this dream, after he too gets bored with the slow pace of Tahitian life. Although Esther is given top billingthis clearly is mainly Howard's film. I love listening to his rich baritone singing voice, and he does not disappoint here, in his second MGM musical.
The frequent inclusion of natives both real and stand ins in the scenes between the romantic twosomes is a definite plus, along with the gorgeous Hawaiian scenery, as a stand in for Tahiti. In contrast to the pronouncements of some others that the Let Yourself Go - Rubicon (2) - America Dreams (Vinyl, LP, Album) are pedestrian, I found them quite adequate for the situations, no doubt aided by Keel's renditions.
True, the total score doesn't compare with Keel's previous musical "Anne Get your Gun", nor his subsequent musical "Showboat", but it certainly tops the truly 'pedestrian' songs given him in his second paring with Esther, in "Texas Carnival". Most are love songs or expressions of the joy of their lives, but "Etiquette" is a fun novelty song that gets Howard interacting with his adopted native children.
