Love is a romantic designation for a most ordinary biological or, shall we say, chemical process. A lot of nonsense is talked and written about it. Greta Garbo as Nina Ivanovna “Ninotchka” Yakushova in Ninotchka (1939) directed by Ernst Lubitsch

FAYARD & HAROLD NICHOLAS (The Nicholas Brothers) in STORMY WEATHER — 1943, dir. Andrew L. Stone Fred Astaire told the brothers that the "Jumpin' Jive" number in Stormy Weather was the greatest number he had ever seen on film. He would have been more impressed had he known, Harold admits, that "when it was time to do the jumps over each other's heads into splits in the routine, we never rehearsed it." Fayard adds: "It came nice and easy. Nick Castle [the choreographer] said not to rehearse it, that we knew what to do, so we did it like a rehearsal. And in one take!" — Brotherhood in Rhythm: The Jazz Tap Dancing of the Nicholas Brothers by Constance Valis Hill

When I turned 18, I felt I was grown up. Then when I was 21, I reflected, “Boy, I was just a kid then; now I’m grown up.” The same thing happened when I was 27. It wasn’t until I was in my early 30s that I realized it was a futile goal to have. You’re never grown up. We’re all still dealing with the same hopes, same fears, same dreams that we had as children.

WONDER BAR (1934) | dir. Lloyd Bacon
“The other [scene that stands out above the rest] involved a handsome man, asking a dancing couple if he could cut in. The female partner, expecting his attention, agrees, only to see him dance with her male partner. Jolson then flaps his wrist and says, “Boys will be boys. Woo!”. This scene almost caused the Production Code to reject the film, and was featured in the opening scenes of the documentary film The Celluloid Closet (1996).”
