“The fifties were peacful time, a quiet sleeping time between two noisy bursts of years , a blue and white time filled with yellow days, music and brught smelling memories” David Gerrold

Filmovi iz pedesetih su neka vrsta droge za mene, droga od koje ne želim da se odviknem. Obožavam ih i mnogima se vraćam često :)Ovaj post napravljen je u cilju da barem nekog navedem da ih pogleda jer ih ja smatram na neki način opštom kulturom, s malim preterivanjem. 🙂 Neću da prepričavam radnje filmova jer mrzim kada pre nego što odlegedam film znam o čemu se radi, tako da ne želim da kvarim užitak onima koje će, možda, zainteresovati ovaj post. Umesto radnje, radije bih istakla neke zanimljivosti u vezi filmova.
P.S. Nisam mogla da odlučim kako da napravim selekciju, ovo je uži izbor užeg izbora. Nadam se da ste bogati strpljenjem 🙂

50’s movies are some kind of drug to me, drug that I don’t want to give up. I adore them, that’s why I return to them over and over again. The goal of this post is to urge those who share my affection to watch them, cause I consider them a general culture, with a little of exaggeration. :)I won’t retell them, cause I personally don’t like to know the complete story in advance. So I don’t want to spoil the pleasure of those who might  be interested. Instead, I’ll write about some interesting things regarding them.
P.S. I couldn’t decide how to make a selection, and this is the shortlist of shortlist. I hope you have a plenty of patience. 😀


1.SUNSET BLVD. 1950

– Pisci su se plašili da će Holivud nepovoljno da reaguje na
optužujuci portret filmske industrije pa je ovaj film za vreme snimanja nosio naziv “Konzerve pasulja”.

– Uramljene fotografije mlade Norme Dezmond su originalne fotografije objavljivane u vreme kad je bila na vrhuncu.

– Ime Norma Dezmond je sastavljeno kombinovanjem imena zvezde nemih filmova Norme Talmadge i reditelja Vilijama Dezmond Tejlora, čije je još uvek nerešeno ubistvo jedan od najvećih skandala u istoriji Holivuda.

-Hedda Hopper i Buster Keaton koji glume sebe u filmu, umrli su istog dana, prvog februara 1966.

-The writers feared that Hollywood would react unfavorably to such a damning portrait of the film industry, and so the film was code named ‘A Can of Beans’ while in production.

-The photos of the young Norma Desmond that decorate the house are all genuine publicity photos from Gloria Swanson’s heyday.

-The name Norma Desmond was chosen from a combination of silent-film star Norma Talmadge and silent movie director William Desmond Taylor, whose still-unsolved murder is one of the great scandals of Hollywood history.

-Hedda Hopper and Buster Keaton, who make cameos as themselves in the movie, both died on the same day: February 1, 1966.

 

 

 

 

 

2.ALL ABOUT EVE (1950)

-Zsa Zsa Gabor je stalno dolazila na snimanja iz ljubomore,zbog scena njenog muža George Sanders i Merlinke.

-Co-star Celeste Holm spoke about her experience with Bette Davis on the first day of shooting: “I walked onto the set . . . on the first day and said, ‘Good morning,’ and do you know her reply? She said, ‘Oh shit, good manners.’ I never spoke to her again – ever.

-Zsa Zsa Gabor kept arriving on the set because she was jealous of her husband George Sanders in his scenes with the young blonde ingénue Marilyn Monroe.

4.REAR WINDOW (1954)

 

-Jedini film u kom je Grace Kelly viđena sa cigaretom. Obično je odbijala takve scene, ali je u ovom filmu napravila izuzetak.

5.ROMAN HOLIDAY (1953)
-Nakon snimanja filma, Gregory Peck je obavestio producente da će Audrey verovatno da dobije Oskara i da je bolje da stave njeno ime iznad naslova filma. Sve se tako odigralo 🙂
-Scena snimljena kod “usta istine” snimljena je iz prvog puta. Gregory Peck je gurnuo ruku u usta istine, i kada je izvadio sakrio je u rukav tako da izgleda kao da je nema. Audrey za to uopste nije znala, i njena reakcija je bila spontana, baš ono što je William Wyler želeo da postigne.
-Prvi američki film koji je u potpunosti snimljen u Italiji.
-Uloga koju tumači Gregory Peck je isprva bila namenjena Carry Grant-u. Grant je odbio ulogu smatrajući da je prestar za Audrey, dok joj je deset godina kasnije pravio društvo u filmu Charade, i posle toga izjavio da mu je jedna od omiljenih glumica sa kojom je sarađivao :
-After filming, Gregory Peck informed the producers that, as Audrey Hepburn was certainly going to win an Oscar (for this, her first major role), they had better put her name above the title. They did and she did.

-Director William Wyler normally films a lot of takes getting the movie right. But The Mouth of Truth scene only took one take. Not known to Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck hid his hand in his sleeve when he took it out of the Mouth. Hepburn’s reaction therefore is both genuine and spontaneous: exactly what Wyler was looking for

-The first American film to be made in its entirety in Italy

-Gregory Peck’s role was originally written with Cary Grant in mind. Grant, however, turned the role down as he believed he was too old to play Audrey Hepburn’s love interest. He did, however, play her on-screen love ten years later in Charade (1963). The two became firm friends working on the film, and Grant considered her one of his favorite actresses to work with.

 

 

 

 

 

6.GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES (1953)

-Scena u kojoj Jane Russel pada u bazen je bila slučajna, ali se Hawardu Hawksu dopala i odlucio je da je zadrži u filmu.
-Merlin je predložila rečenicu : “I can be smart when it’s important, but most men don’t like it.”
