A while ago, a very very while ago (Yeah!! ;),  I had a conversation regarding English that reminded me of this Tex Avery’s cartoon, called "Symphony In Slang", that I saw quite a long time ago (reminds me of that I need to get back to my search on THAT Mickey Mouse comic that I have been looking for quite some time). Certainly gives a new meaning to English language when one imagines the words like “painting the town red” or “raising a big stink” or “raining cats and dogs” in sight gags. I literally “died laughing” too. :P Well, will someone be joining me? ;)

prashanthchengi, this is for you!!!

Unfortunately Youtube doesnt have the complete video and embed information of other sites is not working. If you want to see it fully, check here: http://vimeo.com/100989067

When I was writing the title for this post, it reminded me of this scene from 1982 Hindi hit movie Namak Halal where Amitabh Bachchan baffles Ranjeet with the little English that he knows. He speaks so smoothly one wouldn’t guess that he was talking in pure Hindi a few seconds before. Enjoy the scene!!!

Absolutely loved 'Symphony in Slang'. Thanks for the vimeo link! I also haven't watched Namak Halal yet, so adding it too, to my to watch list. I did watch another oldie earlier this week; I saw Brahmachari and liked it very much.

Yup. Shammi Kapoor. I ended up watching two movies, starring three of the Kapoor clan, in the same week! Mera Naam Joker, starring Rishi and Raj Kapoors, and Brahmachari, starring Shammi. Brahmachaari has one of my favorite songs:

Incidentally, I'm not much of a Rafi fan, but I love this song.

You are not a Rafi fan! Wow...Why? You a Kishore fan?

Yep thats the one on my list...I like this particularly because of the story theme the dancers show that for some reason wrenched my heart...
