Ashes And Diamonds (1958, Andrzej Wajda)

On 8 May 1945, the year of Nazi Germany’s formal surrender, a post-war Poland finds itself struggling to rise from the ashes, as ambitious cliques of patrician patriots, determined Communists, Soviet soldiers, and brave anti-Nazi resistance fighters all jockey for position.

Against the backdrop of this explosive melting pot somewhere in a small Polish town, Maciek Chelmicki, a former Home Army member and now an efficient assassin, fails in his mission to execute the newly-appointed district secretary, Commissar Szczuka, only to have a fateful encounter with the charming barmaid, Krystyna.

But, how can Maciek start afresh and rebuild his life with Krystyna away from a cause he served his entire life, especially now that the dilemma between patriotism and skepticism is more agonizing than ever?

Most are still living at home, unemployed, spending their time together amusing themselves in whatever means, which they find difficult in what they consider their boring town, needing to sponge money off their loved ones.

They are mostly aimless, although Leopoldo, the intellectual, writes, mostly plays, and Riccardo sings whenever given the opportunity. The first one forced at least to start to grow up is Fausto, the cad, who gets Sandra, Moraldo’s naive sister, pregnant.

Although he was going to run off to Milan and abandon her, Fausto instead marries her after his father finds out about the pregnancy.

Fausto and Sandra will find if the sheer act of being married and parents will make Fausto truly grow up, or if their example of being married will get any of the five friends out of their inertia, most specifically by leaving town to strike out on their own

Singin’ in The Rain (1952, Stanley Donen & Gene Kelly)

1927 Hollywood. Monumental Pictures’ biggest stars, glamorous on-screen couple Lina Lamont and Don Lockwood are also an off-screen couple if the trade papers and gossip columns are to be believed. Both perpetuate the public perception if only to please their adoring fans and bring people into the movie theaters. In reality, Don barely tolerates her, while Lina, despite thinking Don beneath her, simplemindedly believes what she sees on screen in order to bolster her own stardom and sense of self-importance. R.F. Simpson, Monumental’s head, dismisses what he thinks is a flash in the pan: talking pictures. It isn’t until The Jazz Singer (1927) becomes a bona fide hit which results in all the movie theaters installing sound equipment that R.F. knows Monumental, most specifically in the form of Don and Lina, have to jump on the talking picture bandwagon, despite no one at the studio knowing anything about the technology. Musician Cosmo Brown, Don’s best friend, gets hired as Monumental’s ideas man and musical director. And by this time, Don has secretly started dating Kathy Selden, a chorus girl who is trying to make it big in pictures herself. Don and Kathy’s relationship is despite their less than friendly initial meeting. Cosmo and Kathy help Don, who had worked his way up through the movie ranks to stardom, try to make the leap to talking picture stardom, with Kathy following along the way. However, they have to overcome technological issues. But the bigger problem is Lina, who will do anything to ensure she also makes the successful leap into talking pictures, despite her own inabilities and at anyone and everyone else’s expense if they get in her way, especially Kathy as Don’s off-screen girlfriend and possibly his new talking picture leading lady.

The King Of Comedy (1983, Martin Scorsese)

Rupert Pupkin and a young woman named Masha are arguably national late-night talk show host Jerry Langford’s most rabid fans, the two who know each other from hanging outside the show’s New York studio waiting for Jerry to emerge following tapings.

While Masha just wants to be with Jerry, thirty-four-year-old Rupert is an aspiring comic who not only wants to *be* Jerry but also wants to appear on his show to launch his stand-up career, despite he never having even performed stand-up for a real audience of any sort.

Rupert’s fandom includes having a mock set in the basement of his mother’s house where he lives, that set complete with cardboard cutouts of Jerry and his celebrity “guests” such as Liza Minnelli. Rupert manages to get a few minutes alone with Jerry, during which time Jerry gives him some standard platitudes in trying to get rid of him, which delusional Rupert construes to mean that they have now become best friends and that Jerry will indeed have him on the show. Rupert uses this meeting with Jerry as a launching pad to impress Rita, a bartender who he has known and loved since they were in high school together. Rupert goes about trying to meet with Jerry again to arrange that appears on the show. He will have to decide how far he should go, as the standard telephone calls to the studio and waiting in the reception area don’t get him in to see Jerry.

When Baxter is called into Sheldrake’s office for the first time, he learns that it isn’t just to be promoted as he expects, but also to add married Sheldrake to the list to who he will lend his apartment.
