Friday Night Films: “Bedknobs and Broomsticks” by Robert Stevenson

The Last Island

Angela Lansbury made me cry this week singing “Beauty and The Beast at Lincoln Center in New York. She’s simply WONDERFUL so I decided to choose one of her films for this Friday. Love Bednocks and Broomsticks so here it is.  Enjoy ☺

 Bedknobs and Broomsticks is a 1971 British-American musical fantasy film produced by Walt Disney Productions. It is based upon the books The Magic Bed-Knob; or, How to Become a Witch in Ten Easy Lessons (1943) and Bonfires and Broomsticks (1945) by English children’s author Mary Norton.The film combines live action and animation.

When young Charlie, Carrie and Paul move to a small village during World War II, they discover their host, Miss Price (Angela Lansbury), is an apprentice witch! Although her early attempts at magic create hilarious results, she successfully casts a traveling spell on an ordinary bedknob, and they fly to the fantastic, animated…

Camelot – Musical Movie (1967)

Camelot – Musical Movie (1967)

Camelot is a 1967 film adaptation of the musical of the same name. Richard Harris stars as Arthur, Vanessa Redgrave as Guinevere, and Franco Nero as Lancelot. The film was directed by Joshua Logan.

The film, nominated for five Academy Awards, won three for Best Art Direction-Set Decoration (John Truscott), Edward Carrere, John W. Brown, Best Costume Design (John Truscott), and Best Music-Scoring of Music (Adaptation or Treatment) (Alfred Newman, Ken Darby). It was also nominated for Best Cinematography (Richard Kline) and Best Sound. It also won three Golden Globe Awards and was nominated for an additional three.

The film is also notable as the only instance in which a song written for a Broadway show won a Golden Globe award. The category it won in, “‘Best Original Song Written for a Motion Picture,” is reserved only for songs explicitly written for films, not stage musicals, but in this instance, an exception was made, and the song “If Ever I Would Leave You” (mislabeled “If Ever I Should Leave You” on the award) won the Golden Globe that year. Whether this was an accidental oversight on the part of the Foreign Press Association, or a deliberate attempt to circumvent the rules, is unknown, but it had never happened before, and has not happened since. In addition, Frederick Loewe was nominated for a Golden Globe for “Best Original Score,” although the score was written for the Broadway stage, and not for film.
