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

susan strasberg wasn't blessed with years. what a great career she could have had if she had lived. she could still be acting.

I agree with one who commented On Movie Picnic during the dance between W Holden &
K Novak, around the lake, & in my opinion, there will never be a more Erotic scene without tearing off clothes, sweating, & showing graphic sexual union.
This dance, they performed to my favorite song, Moonglow, Picnic, is the greatest Erotic scene of all past plays & movies, barring none.

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 1950's.....it was mostly shown in the drive ins for this reason....tee hee

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!

Earth One: You are exactly correct  when they substitute some macabre score it gets absurd  1) we are used to the original( Romantic) 2) what they choose is some wacky melody of what they think fits 3)  Its like re making a film ..for the worse
The Inge play on Broadway was winner but what Josh Logan brought to the screen was just mystical   shot in Kansas   ( Mostly)

One of the most moving final scenes in any movie is the aerial view of the bus leaving with Kim Novak and then pulling away to show the train with William Holden also moving away from the small town Kansas they are both escaping.  Magnificent cinematography.

Wow !  One of my favorite movies ever. I always thought Billy Wilder directed Picnic for some reason.  But just checked Wikipedia & found out it was Joshua Logan.  Wow, Joshua Logan was a genius director !  Wish they had a "Behind the Scenes, The Making of Picnic" documentary.  So much talent in one film.  Man oh man.  Great job putting this mini-expo together.  You hit all the highlights.  Thanks for posting it.  Oh yea, love the music too.  Always a big Steve Allen fan...after all I was named after him !  Grandma loved him on the Tonight Show & I was born in '58.  We met at one of his concerts in early '90's & he said you wouldn't believe how many people are named after him!   Oh well, still feel honored & special.  Thanks again Grandma !!  RIP everybody.

I saw this movie when I was 13 (with my mother no less). The sexuality of the scene was lost on me back then, but not the romance--got the sheet music, even. Thank you for putting this together--impossibly delicious romance + pure sexuality. What a combination. Sigh...

Автор lukeloveslauraalways ( назад)
This was an amazing movie.  Both Kim and William Holden just made this such a great lovestory.  Kim was just drop dead gorgeous then,  It's a shame Bill Holden had some problems in later life with booze.  He was such a fine actor.

BadZKarma99, the dance scene is also one of my favorite scenes from Picnic. Your montage is very moving. I enjoyed it.
There is only one other movie, The Long Hot Summer, that compares in pure sexual tension to Picnic. One would expect nothing less from William Holden with Kim Novak and Paul Newman with Joanne Woodward, four of the biggest movie idols of their time and for a long time. Thank you.

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.

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. <3

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}...

Автор jackpark7927 ( назад)
In an era of Great Movie Beauties (the '50s) I fear Kim Novak was too often overlooked...especially after she went blonde. Great movie, great script, great performances. And how could anyone tire of listening (or dancing) to Moonglow?

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.
