The Pirate (1948)
Gene Kelly's wig was ridiculous and Judy Garland's real-life terror came though in her acting but together they were an excellent comedy and dancing duo. The film had some good songs and top-notch dancing. The ballet was a bit self-indulgent and Gene's black hot-pants were a bit campy, but hey, it's an MGM musical- and remember it's all in Judy's alcohol and drug-fueled mind!
Could have done without the reprise of Be a Clown though...
Amy listens to radio 4, she goes to the theatre and she rents foreign films. In between this busy lifestyle she creates artwork for TV drama productions such as BBC One's 'Birdsong' and the upcoming Stephen Poliakoff drama 'Dancing on the Edge'. Besides TV she carries on the classic British tradition of silly pen and watercolour illustrations. She also likes to made badges.
