Llevo un rato buscando carteles de Solo ante el peligro, para una base de datos que tengo que hacer para clase, y he encontrado este cartel, creo que es original pero no estoy seguro. Llevo como 15 minutos usando el buscador de imágenes de google, tratando de encontrarlo a mayor resolución y a poder ser una imagen en la que no le hayan cortado los zapatos a Gary Cooper. Aún así debo decir que el cartel me parece tremendo, pagaría millones por poder tener un poster así en el cuarto. Solo ante el peligro es una grandísima película, y examinando mis recuerdos me he dado cuenta de que yo, al igual que la mayoría de las personas, he estado completamente solo ante el peligro mas veces de las que me gustaría.
When invited to be the mystery guest on the famous show What’s My Line on April 3, 1955, Fred Astaire was asked by one of the panelists, “Are you known as a singer in the entertainment world?” to which he responded, no. After the panel guessed his identity, Dorothy Kilgallen interrupted the applause to interject, “He’s one of the greatest singers who ever lived!” Fred Astaire replied by thanking her but saying, “I just don’t think so.”
It broke my heart to hear him say that, and in lieu of Freddie’s upcoming birthday, I thought I’d do a Fred appreciation post. Here are the words of several world-famous composers and singers on Fred and his singing:
Irving Berlin: As a dancer he stands alone, and no singer knows his way around a song like Fred Astaire.
Bing Crosby: He has a remarkable ear for intonation, a great sense of rhythm and what is most important, he has great style - style in my way of thinking is a matter of delivery, phrasing, pace, emphasis, and most of all presence.
Stephen Sondheim: [when asked, “What great singers of the past do you wish had sung your music?”] Nobody really. Well, actually, Fred Astaire.
Oscar Levant: Fred Astaire is the best singer of songs the movie world ever knew. His phrasing has individual sophistication that is utterly charming. Presumably the runner-up would be Bing Crosby, a wonderful fellow, though he doesn’t have the unstressed elegance of Astaire.
I think this one just about sums it up:
Jerome Kern: Astaire can’t do anything bad.
Fred Astaire was the king of the entertainment business, true Hollywood royalty. I hope he realized just how amazing he was because no one has or ever will achieve his level of greatness in the performing arts. He was simply the best in what he did. Fred was, is, and forever will be very much loved.
