The sketchiness in the handling of Persephone and Pluto in
THE GODDESS OF SPRING
developed a lack of interest in the plot of the story.
KING MIDAS - King
Midas is in every scene and all he does is talk about himself. (Manuel)
21.Gags and actions appealing
to the senses.
- The pic appeals to the sense of smell, taste, warmth. (Karpe)
The shivering and crouching of the kittens did more to get over the
feeling of the cold than did the snow. In any sensual feeling on the
screen, the effect of the characters is much more effective in producing
the sensual reaction in then audience than is the cause, be it smell,
sound, touch, muscles, taste, temperature, or whatever it may be.
ORPHAN'S PICNIC - skidding
bees was a gag appealing to the ears, eyes, and touch, the sound and
sight of the bees influencing the ears and eyes of the audience, and
the fear instilled by these appeals to the sense of touch. (Brightman)
ON ICE - When Pluto sat
in the cold water after sitting in the fire, the audience literally
cooled off with him. (Brightman)
22. Effects achieved by indirect
The rubber glove sequence in
BROKEN TOYS was in
indirect suggestion of the operation and its progress. As the life of
the girl was ebbing, it slowed down and when the crisis was passed,
it inflated again and started snapping its fingers. (Pfeiffer)
23. Stories that are memorable
vs those which are easily forgotten.
THREE LITTLEPIGS is of course the most memorable story we have ever produced.
It benefited from a certain psychological contribution from the audience
not accorded later pictures that were equally as good technically.
TORTOISE AND HARE
and BAND CONCERT are
memorable chiefly because they have one simple theme that moves ahead
steadily to its solution. (Algar)
