    Still 24th April in the USA.
    So Happy Birthday Mrs. Barbra.

    It's the first movie now I give 5 stars for its greatness.
    This movie especially means a lot to me now after one of my best friends got married, so it really hit some cords.

    Now I know why not restored is bad, and it's not even a silent film.
    That was quite choppy, and felt like it missed crucial lines due to it.
    Lighting made everyone look more alike than usual.
    Audio was choppy, just as the scenes.
