Motion Picture Musical

Famous quotes containing the words motion picture, motion, picture and/or musical:

    The motion picture made in Hollywood, if it is to create art at all, must do so within such strangling limitations of subject and treatment that it is a blind wonder it ever achieves any distinction beyond the purely mechanical slickness of a glass and chromium bathroom.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    Thence, flow! conceit and motion to rehearse
    Pastoral terrors of youth still in the man,
    Torsions of sleep, in emblematic verse
    Rattling like dice unless the verse shall scan
    All chance away....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    It’s God.
    I’d know Him by Blake’s picture anywhere.
    Now what’s He doing?
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Syncopations are no indication of light or trashy music, and to shy bricks at “hateful ragtime” no longer passes for musical culture.
    Scott Joplin (1868–1917)
