This one is an ambitious attempt to connect to a top-tier Disney classic.
Moving into 1949 Jimmy Stewart maintained his production level with two more films. One of them is the true story of professional baseball player Monty Stratton.
I don’t have a lot to say except that I really enjoyed the trip down memory lane. The film kept just enough of the originals in it to be loyal to the beginnings of the Muppets.
The year 1948 brought us a number of great performances from Jimmy Stewart. Call Northside 777 shows Stewart’s ability to work in suspense films. This film features Jimmy alongside Richard Conte, and Lee J. Cobb.
He holds a key piece of evidence and knowledge that could bring powerful people down. These same people are searching for him in an effort to silence the only witness.
Watching this film is a wonderful experience. It’s got the feel of the great Hollywood studio classics with the colorful set designs and large-scale musical numbers. The music is no less wonderful than you would expect when you have Gene Kelly working with music written by Ira Gershwin.
This film is an amazing example of the many talents of Gene Kelly and many of the stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood. The dancing and singing are entertaining and done at the highest level.

When you take a male model at the end of his career and brainwash him into killing the Prime Minister of Malaysia you might not expect laughs. This film defies expectation when it takes this premise and makes it a comedy.
