NOTES AND RESEARCH

Action Packed Minute!!!

So much Muppety stuff here to unpack…

Lady Holiday not sweating at all

Piggy like a kid when the parents go away

  • Dancing
  • I’m going to be a famous model
  • “I’m so happy for me.”

The editing on this film is INCREDIBLE; love the cuts and continuation of action

 

Carla, Marla and Darla

  • Complaining about Lady Holiday
  • Already letting us know they are jewel thieves
  • Coordinating robbery outfits
  • Were they playing the long game?
    • Get a job there as models to steal the diamond
    • Or hit up from the outside?
  • Matching outfits!!!!!
    • Never noticed that detail before
    • Trench Coat and Sunglasses
    • D, C or M on hat to tell them apart
    • Single color accent scheme; Hat, Scarf, Handbag
      • D = Red
      • C = Black
      • D = Green

 

Kermit, Gonzo and Fozzie

  • Hilarious getting off the elevator
  • Gonzo loves attractive women
  • Makes sense, since Lady Holiday said they looked like barnyard animals
  • “Did you give directions to a frog?”

 

Gonzo Photo

  • Models on elevator
  • New photographer
  • Did that inspire her to do it in real life?

Gonzo nose stuck

Fozzie helps pull it out
