Judy Garland headlines The Harvey Girls, a joyous slice of Americana celebrating the "Harvey House" restaurants that brought extra helpings of civilization to the Old West. Famed M-G-M musical producer Arthur Freed brought together an impressive cast of talents for this box-office hit which features a delightful original score by composer Harry Warren and lyricist Johnny Mercer, who earned an Oscar for their On the Atchison, Topeka, and the Santa Fe as the Best Song of 1946. Garland once again shares the screen with her "Oz" co-star Ray Bolger, clowns with Virginia O'Brien, falls in love with leading man John Hodiak, and faces off against wicked saloon gal Angela Lansbury in one of the most entertaining and enduring musical classics to come from Metro's golden age, now fully restored to its original Technicolor luster for its Blu-ray debut.

As I told Tino, you too must be channeling Molly Bloom's final orgasmic scream at the end of Joyce's Ulysses.
Except that final scene goes on for something like over 100 pages--I saw Siobhan McKenna read it once at Symphony Space during Bloomsday; it was really long, and not especially orgasmic--and I wouldn't want to have to read that many yes-es.

I saw her too, but at a different venue (Circle in the Square?, my memory fails me right now). She was magnificent, and younger as well.

She was definitely magnificent, with a voice like a sensuous fog and a personality indescribable but transcendent; a performance that exited on so many levels, it's impossible to forget.

And for us to bring it back to The Harvey Girls, did you not see the excellent 35mm IB Tech print that used to circulate in NY during the '70s? I believe one of those screenings was the last time I saw it. Time to remedy that.

But of course! The print was stunning, awash with baby blues and blushing pinks and randy reds. Watching it was similar to seeing a roomfull of crinoline sashay against a panoply of soda fountain specials, with lots of whipped cream and chocolate sprinkes and walnuts. Though the "The Harvey Girls" is not one of my favorite MGM musicals, the Technicolor is dazzling.

You'll both think me a philistine (as a matter of record, my drag name would be "Phyllis Stein" should I ever decide to take it up) but I have an absolute horror of James Joyce. I was scared by PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN as a young man and never got over it.

I took a Modern Novels course in college that included this book, and while it didn't horrify me, it didn't make me curious to further my knowledge with Joyce's Ulysses despite my professor's recommendation to pursue it.

I was also scared off by "Portrait of the Artist" when I was young, but was snowed in for 4 days when I was sixteen in Utica, at a friend of my parents' house. The only book worth reading was "Ulysses" and I fell in love with it. I didn't know what it meant, but I loved the language and the characters. It was unlike any book I had ever read in that it launched a thousand movies in my head. It was so visual and interactive. It was like being on the inside of images and possibly life itself, that dark undercurrent of desire and possibility. Anyway, it got me through adolescence.
