Top ten lists should be relegated to the David Letterman show. “These are the best ten thingies of all time.” If they really are, then, without new evidence to change opinion, why does the list change?nnAnswer: Because it gets a page views. Even, or maybe especially, by people like me who think they are , to the person asking why comedies never make the top lists; comedies make you smile and feel good, critics seem to believe art should wake the hidden sorrow you have buried deep inside. Yeah, we REALLY need to get more in touch with that. Too much joy in the world otherwise.
I'll just let Lipton talk: "He took what he had seen Salvini [Note: No idea who that is or if I spelled it correctly] and Doozer [Note: No idea who that is or if I spelled it correctly] do, and tried to figure out how they did what they did when they were at their best. His influence on acting is universal. Sure, there were pockets of resistance. You don't use it for the Beijing opera or the Comédie-Française, but with the advent of motion pictures, that kind of acting was no longer appropriate and did look, in the early days of films, foolish."
