Julie Dawn Cole é 5 review

Ics worldwide and often featured in broadcasts with other masterpiece musicals it remains a timeless treasure Acclaimed film critic Robert Ebert wrote Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is probably the best film of its sort since The Wizard of Oz It is everything that family movies usually claim to be but aren't Delightful funny scary exciting and most of all a genuine work of imagination Julie Dawn Cole has written an enchanting and richly illustrated memoir that offers a rare look behind the stage curtain to this ageless film Want It Now a Memoir MOBI #198 Splendidly illustrated with personal letters. I picked up this book as a free Kindle book a week or so ago especially since it covers the topic of one of my favorite childhood movies The author is the actress who played Veruca Salt and the book is mostly comprised of her memories of the time spent working on the movie along with the experiences after the movie was revived in the 1990s for home video The book is rounded out with some biographical details of the author's life including her early schooling and later acting success on televisionThe book was well put together and had a good flow to it and I really enjoyed the stories that the author had to tell She goes over her memories from the audition through traveling without her family just a studio hired chaperone for shooting in Bavaria and it is a delightful mix of technical and behind the scenes information along with movie magic as seen through the eyes of a child I especially enjoyed reading little bits about the movie development such as the extra verses for I Want It Now Veruca's song which include the lines something like and when it comes time for my marriage I want nothing less than a king Her observations about her own relationships with other cast members both then and recently are interesting and relatively even handed as she doesn't stint on appropriate criticism of her younger tween selfIf you like the movie and enjoy biographies and behind the scenes vignettes you will probably enjoy this book It's not a very long one however and if you're looking for deep personal secrets about the author or her fellow actors you won't find them so save your money I enjoyed it and would happily recommend it to others who think they'd like it

I Want It Now a Memoir of Life on the Set of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate FactoryIn Julie Dawn It Now PDFEPUB #195 Cole was cast as the unforgettable Veruca Salt in the classic I Want PDF motion picture Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with Gene Wilder Since its release in Want It Now PDFEPUB #196 this epic musical has endured as a favorite of children from around the world with a Want It Now a Memoir MOBI #198 fan base that encompasses generations of movie goers With its unforgettable characters chocolatey landscapes and everlasting music this charming fairy tale mixes these ingredients into what has been become a cinematic classic from literary legend Roald Dahl Praised by crit. So I'm part of that weird generation that grew up with this version and the Tim Burton one I definitely have childhood memories from this and so when I saw it's a thing I had to read it immediately Cole takes a few pages to describe her childhood goes in depth about the filming experience and sums up the story by telling us about her adult life I know that several people have been disappointed by how much of the book isn't Willy Wonka related but I found her adult life interesting I mean guys she was an actress became a fitness instructor and then went to uni and became a psychotherapist That's some inspiration right there Who says you have to pick a career Anyway the biggest miss in my opinion was that this book wasn't a collaborative effort I mean Cole was 13 years old during the filming of the movie so it makes sense that we would see the perspective of a 13 year old who left home for 10 weeks to go film in Germany And that's fine but throughout the book we don't see beyond her perspective When I read this I desperately wanted to hear all of the side stories that she skips over She mentions that the actors playing the Oompa Loompas were big partiers I absolutely need to hear about this Or I'd love to hear the perspective of the costume designers and what inspired them I want to hear about the dramas with Roald Dahl I want to know the producing challenges of working on an American German set Heck I want an entire chapter by Michael Bollner about acting in a film when you don't speak the language I'm so curious if Peter Ostrum knew that both Julie and Denise Violet were into him and what made him change his career These uestions don't get answered and it's such a shame that Cole didn't let her cast and crew tell their story as well I think it would have been a much better read I'm sure that everyone has much to tell Even within her own story Cole skips over the drama As I see it when you write a memoir if you decide to write about a certain topic you have a responsibility to dig deep Like she didn't have to write about all of her marriages but once she opted to mention it I want to know the whole story and Cole does not give it What went wrong with the marriages Did it make her hesitant to marry again Is it an impact of her childhood Why didn't she connect with her father after that one phone call and what was even said in that call What does she think about the new film Did she ever connect with the actors there I genuinely think there's a misunderstanding between what the audience wanted and what Cole was willing to provide I think it's fair to say that most people don't know Cole's other works very well or in my case at all As a reader I wanted perspective about a childhood film of mine and I'm not uite sure how much I got from this It mostly feels like a missed opportunity So do I recommend this Cole comes across as a very nice person She obviously works hard and has had an interesting life If you're looking for gossip this isn't the book for you but there is something very wholesome about this entire book even with my criticism so there's that What I'm Taking With Me Cole opening a theater group in her hometown is so lovely I ended up watching a Matilda reunion and it was the sweetest thing I've seen in months we don't deserve Danny DeVito and can Mara Wilson marry me On the topic there's an entire area of the Internet dedicated to conspiracy theories about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory My favorites would have to be that Grandpa Joe is a Nazi and that Willy Wonka had planned for all of this to happen and had built the rooms specifically to get rid of the other kids Also I got into a long discussion with my sister about how all of the kids here are selfish including Charlie I mean his family is starving and once he procures money he goes to buy chocolate That could have surely bought some food for everyone else but nope he only thinks about himself It's not different from Veruca Salt who only wants of things or Mike who can only see himself or any other kid here
