Claude Rains

I started asking people here at the stations, who Claude Rains was.  Out of a building of nearly 100, only 4 people had a clue.  Sad to think that the original “Invisible Man” has gone away.  Of course Claude had many more movie rolls than that, but “The Invisible Man” was his first feature roll.  It was his distinct voice that got him the roll, much by accident.

So I asked if anyone knew Bela Lugosi, and was told it was Bella Swan.  No, not gonna’ give you that one just because they both are from vampire movies.  Granted one is really scary and the other glittery, but you don’t get the prize.  Hoping for one out of three, I asked if anyone knew Boris Karloff.  Finally someone knew the answer, “yeah he was the voice in Michael Jackson’s Thriller.”  Please shoot me now.

Considering Brenda has never watched the “Star Wars” trilogy, I guess I can’t expect our “get it in an instant” generation to sit through a movie with no soundtrack, let alone without color.   Movies used to have acting, now they have sound so anyone can supposedly act.  (see Megan Fox, no really who cares if she can act, she just needs to be seen).

These days the soundtrack to a movie actually accounts for 65% of the mood for the film.  If you have the wrong music the movie will tank or will take on a different mood.  Take for instance “Frozen”, what if it had a horror soundtrack.

Or “Tangled.

Tangled The Horror Movie

Or “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”

How about the beloved “Sound of Music.”

Sound Of Music The Horror Movie

Well you get the idea, today with a different soundtrack you can completely change a movie.  Now go find out who Claude Rains, Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff were.  No really, them and Jimmy Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, Lou Costello, Bud Abbott, Spike Jones…..
