the Looniverse

CARMEN JONES
director Otto Preminger, 1954

Oscar Hammerstein II

If you want to really see the rose, buy the record (if you can).
But if you want to see it tantalizingly disappearing and reappearing,
buy the movie!

What I like
very much about this one is how, just like in a stage opera, people stand there singing to each other about their most intimate feelings at the top of their voices, while nobody in the crowd milling around them seems to notice a thing.
A weird convention, that — Preminger seems to feel the same way. And why must operas be so horribly melodramatic?
The first movie titles by Saul Bass.
