Picnic- Moonglow

This is a tribute to a movie called "Picnic" & it was released in 1955 & starred Kim Novak,William Holden,Susan Strasberg & Rosalind Russell. My favorite scene of the movie is the dance between Kim Novak & Bill Holden, it is one of the most romantic dances & moments on film.

I hope you enjoy my montage!!

Here is a description of the movie: One of the biggest box-office attractions of the 1950s, Picnic was adapted by Daniel Taradash from the Pulitzer Prize-winning William Inge play. William Holden plays Hal Carter, a handsome drifter who ambles into a small Kansas town during the Labor Day celebration to look up old college chum Alan (Cliff Robertson, in his film debut). Hoping to hit up Alan for a job--or a handout--Hal ends up stealing his buddy's fiancee Madge Owens (Kim Novak). Hal also has a catnip effect on spinster schoolteacher Rosemary Sydney (Rosalind Russell), so much so that Rosemary makes a fool of herself in front of the whole town, nearly driving away her longtime beau Howard Bevans (Arthur O'Connell). Persuaded by his friends and family that Hal is no damn good, Madge is prepared to break off her relationship. As anyone who remembers the film's famous overhead closing shot knows, however, Madge is ultimately ruled by her heart and not her head. For a film set in Kansas, there's an awful lot of New York talent in the supporting cast (Susan Strasberg and Phyllis Newman come immediately to mind); still, the Midwestern ambience comes through loud and clear, especially during the perceptively detailed Labor Day picnic sequence. Broadening the film's appeal is its George Duning-Steve Allen title song, a variation of the old standard "Moonglow".

Music: 1st song is Moonglow & Theme from Picnic By: Morris Stoloff
2nd song is: Unchained Melody

The good moments in the film

Автор tippimail1 ( назад)
Starting at 1:38-maybe the sexiest scene ever recorded on film,with a
perfect music score.Like Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead said,i was
listening to music before there was rock and roll.One of my very favorite
songs and movies.Thanks for posting this.

most beautiful music. Thank You for putting this together. It left me
breathless and with a tear in my eye.

William Holden detested making this film as he considered himself too old
to play against Kim Novak. Rumor has it he was intoxicated doing the dance
scene with Novak on the dock.

La Novak le tenia ganas al Holden en esa pelicula

Milly to Madge -final scene: "Go with him..... for once in your life do
something bright". Oh gosh, this is SO Labor Day 50s.--With the assist
(evocatively) from the great cinematographer James Wong Howe filmed on
location in small town America 1954-55.

Holden did his own stunts hopping the train.

Picnic was shot mostly around Hutchinson, Kansas. Halstead. Kansas
Riverside Park is where all the Labor Day picnic scenes were shot with the
participation of the key players. Later the film footage was edited like a
documentary. The park and many landmarks still existed at the time of the
movie's 50th anniversary. The park rides and cable suspension footbridge
which spans the Little Arkansas River are still located there.

Picnic won the prestigious Grand Prix de I'UCC 1957 Best Picture, the
Golden Globe Best Picture Award--and is rated #59 in AFI's 100 Passions:
Greatest Love Stories.

Picnic was almost banned in my city for being to vulgar back in the

Each time I see this clip from PICNIC , I'm left wanting more . I was only
5 yrs old when this film was released and have never seen it on Cable TV
--The Music , the locations , the acting , all superb

Good theme. I liked it very much and still do, now I was a kid when the
film was done so I could not see it. But I recall I liked the music played
on the radio. This is real music not like the things made today which seem
more like noise!

The just don't make films like this any more. They might try, but Hollywood
has changed so much, they can't do this kind of film any more. It is so
important that we preserve the old films. Picnic is definitely one of my
very favorite movies.

Автор Leslie T ( назад)
Yes !! The dance scene in this film is definitely one of the most romantic
scenes in the history of Hollywood films. And Kim Novak and William Holden
were great in this film.

Автор Joel Diers ( назад)
It was a a great show, William Holden played a great part as well as Kim
Novak, If you were with your girlfriend it turned into a real tearjerker,
great music, could see it again it would surely bring back the old days.

ssiigggghhhhh...... As a 28 year old, I grew up watching older films with
my mom, but how we missed this one I'll never know. Saw it for the first
time the other night and fell madly in love with the whole film...so very
raw and emotional. And yes, truly one of the most romantic dances on film.

On this day in 1956 {May 5th} "Picnic" by the McGuire Sisters entered
Billboard's Top 100 chart; eventually it peaked at #13 and spent 20 weeks
on the Top 100... Also in 1956 Morris Stoloff's instrumental version
reached #1 {for 3 weeks} on June 2nd on Billboard's Most Played by Jockeys
chart {the song it knocked out of the top spot was Elvis' "Heartbreak
Hotel"}... R.I.P. Mr. Stoloff {1898 - 1980}, Dorothy McGuire {1928 - 2012},
and to The King {1935 - 1977}...

Great video - excellent summation of the film. The highlight for me is your
soundtrack. I don't recall ever having heard Morris Stoloff play
"Moonglow/Picnic" in stereophonic sound before and it adds a whole new
dimension to the visuals. In a word - gorgeous. Thank you.

1/ "PICNIC" is my most favorite. 2/ I watched it right after my high school
graduation in 1955 in Hong Kong.3/ I spent the following 40 years to search
for my own copy, and finally it is on my book shelf now! 4/ I stopped
teaching International Ballroom Dancing in 1997,but I loved this love
scene. And a few days ago, I was dancing on the beach, under the stars in
Rye playland with the fireworks and the big band playing "moonglow".....at
the age of 75 now! George Wu, AIA 2012-8-14

badZKarma 99 - This is one of my favorite movies of all time. Especially
the dance scene. But at the end you should have played the Picnic Theme
music. But thanks anyway. I can't find Picnic 09 on YouTube. That's the
scene where she goes with him in the car after the scene at the Picnic.

Best movie music ever...........I agree with so many others that the dance
sequence is the best romantic scene - so much magic and love expressed by
both characters.......beautiful!

The slow dance brings out the beauty of Kim Novak. I don't think any other
of her movie could archive that. She was perfect for the picture.

This is so beautiful and it takes me back to a time when there was romance.
Thank you for making my heart remember those times. I am 70 yrs old, but
still a romantic at heart. You never get too old to love, be loved, and
dance in your mind. A glass of wine makes it even better.

In 1955 I was only 7 years old and seeing this movie through out the years
still fascinates me how well the music fit the movie theme, the story, the
actors and above all William Holden and Kim Novak produced such chemistry.
Thank you

I was 16 when I saw this movie in 1956 and was quite overcome. I thought
then that Kim Novak was quite the most beautiful and sensuous woman I had
ever seen. I still think that.

This is an awesome video. Great job. Holden and Novak exuded sex appeal in
the Moonglow dance scene. She was a real beauty...and still is at age 75.
Wonderfully romantic movie. Why don't they make them like this anymore?
Awesome montage Katie. I saw it for the first time when I was 12 with my
dad, and I remember him telling me that "Czech" girls (both of Kim's
parents were of Czech origin) were the most beautiful girls in the world.
After all these years I realized he was spot on!
