Picnic- Moonglow

  • Опубликовано:  7 лет назад
  • This is a tribute to a movie called "Picnic" & it was released in 1955 & starred Kim Novak,William Holden,Susan Strasberg & Rosalind Russell. My favorite scene of the movie is the dance between Kim Novak & Bill Holden, it is one of the most romantic dances & moments on film.

    I hope you enjoy my montage!!

    Here is a description of the movie: One of the biggest box-office attractions of the 1950s, Picnic was adapted by Daniel Taradash from the Pulitzer Prize-winning William Inge play. William Holden plays Hal Carter, a handsome drifter who ambles into a small Kansas town during the Labor Day celebration to look up old college chum Alan (Cliff Robertson, in his film debut). Hoping to hit up Alan for a job--or a handout--Hal ends up stealing his buddy's fiancee Madge Owens (Kim Novak). Hal also has a catnip effect on spinster schoolteacher Rosemary Sydney (Rosalind Russell), so much so that Rosemary makes a fool of herself in front of the whole town, nearly driving away her longtime beau Howard Bevans (Arthur O'Connell). Persuaded by his friends and family that Hal is no damn good, Madge is prepared to break off her relationship. As anyone who remembers the film's famous overhead closing shot knows, however, Madge is ultimately ruled by her heart and not her head. For a film set in Kansas, there's an awful lot of New York talent in the supporting cast (Susan Strasberg and Phyllis Newman come immediately to mind); still, the Midwestern ambience comes through loud and clear, especially during the perceptively detailed Labor Day picnic sequence. Broadening the film's appeal is its George Duning-Steve Allen title song, a variation of the old standard "Moonglow".

    Music: 1st song is Moonglow & Theme from Picnic By: Morris Stoloff
    2nd song is: Unchained Melody

    Used to be the whole soundtrack posted. The incidental music is also good where the composer includes music from another movie, "Full of Life." The chase music was also used in other movies.

    I agree with one who commented On Movie Picnic during the dance between W Holden &
    K Novak, around the lake, & in my opinion, there will never be a more Erotic scene without tearing off clothes, sweating, & showing graphic sexual union.
    This dance, they performed to my favorite song, Moonglow, Picnic, is the greatest Erotic scene of all past plays & movies, barring none.

    William Holden detested making this film as he considered himself too old to play against Kim Novak. Rumor has it he was intoxicated doing the dance scene with Novak on the  dock.

      +Ray Opezzo Holden had just turned 37 when filming began and was 15 years older than Novak. However, the hard living and drinking actor looked older and was dead at 61. Novak still going strong at 82.

    Milly to Madge -final scene: "Go with him..... for once in your life do something bright". Oh gosh, this is SO Labor Day 50s.--With the assist (evocatively) from the great cinematographer James Wong Howe filmed on location in small town America 1954-55.

    Holden did his own stunts hopping the train.

    Picnic was shot mostly around Hutchinson, Kansas. Halstead. Kansas Riverside Park is where all the Labor Day picnic scenes were shot with the participation of the key players. Later the film footage was edited like a documentary. The park and many landmarks still existed at the time of the movie's 50th anniversary. The park rides and cable suspension footbridge which spans the Little Arkansas River are still located there.

    Picnic won the prestigious Grand Prix de I'UCC 1957 Best Picture, the Golden Globe Best Picture Award--and is rated #59 in AFI's 100 Passions: Greatest Love Stories.

    Earth One: You are exactly correct  when they substitute some macabre score it gets absurd  1) we are used to the original( Romantic) 2) what they choose is some wacky melody of what they think fits 3)  Its like re making a film ..for the worse
    The Inge play on Broadway was winner but what Josh Logan brought to the screen was just mystical   shot in Kansas   ( Mostly)

    One of the most moving final scenes in any movie is the aerial view of the bus leaving with Kim Novak and then pulling away to show the train with William Holden also moving away from the small town Kansas they are both escaping.  Magnificent cinematography.

    Wow !  One of my favorite movies ever. I always thought Billy Wilder directed Picnic for some reason.  But just checked Wikipedia & found out it was Joshua Logan.  Wow, Joshua Logan was a genius director !  Wish they had a "Behind the Scenes, The Making of Picnic" documentary.  So much talent in one film.  Man oh man.  Great job putting this mini-expo together.  You hit all the highlights.  Thanks for posting it.  Oh yea, love the music too.  Always a big Steve Allen fan...after all I was named after him !  Grandma loved him on the Tonight Show & I was born in '58.  We met at one of his concerts in early '90's & he said you wouldn't believe how many people are named after him!   Oh well, still feel honored & special.  Thanks again Grandma !!  RIP everybody.

      Interesting.  Plus THAT incredible score "Moon Glow" (I believe) added such passionate intensity to the scene.  The whole thing was just so superbly executed.  I miss original instrumental film scores.  Now they have to use popular singers belting out crass lyrics, so overdone. 


    • charles pope

      Holden thought he was too old for the part of Hal.  Also, he didnt take to dancing at all and what you see was a lot of work by him. It didn't matter . Mr Howe made this scene a memorable one...

    BadZKarma99, the dance scene is also one of my favorite scenes from Picnic. Your montage is very moving. I enjoyed it.
    There is only one other movie, The Long Hot Summer, that compares in pure sexual tension to Picnic. One would expect nothing less from William Holden with Kim Novak and Paul Newman with Joanne Woodward, four of the biggest movie idols of their time and for a long time. Thank you.
