|"The Man that Got Away" is a
song, published in
1953 and was written for the
1954 version of the movie
A Star Is Born. The music was written by
Harold Arlen, and the lyrics by
Ira Gershwin. In 1955 it was nominated for the
Academy Award for Best Original Song.
Arlen had originally collaborated with Johnny Mercer, who wrote lyrics that began "I've seen Sequoia, it's really very pretty, the art of Goya, and Rockefeller City, but since I saw you, I can't believe my eyes." The Gershwin Collection at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin contains a typescript draft of the lyrics with Ira Gershwin's handwritten changes.
The best-known recording of this song was made by Judy Garland with the Warner Bros. orchestra under the direction of Ray Heindorf using an arrangement by Skip Martin. Judy's performance of the song in A Star is Born is unusual for being filmed in one continuous shot. In the finished take, Garland (as Esther Blodgett) performs the song during an after hours rehearsal session in a smoky nightclub.
"The Man That Got Away" is arguably the most important single musical sequence in the entire film. As one of the first things filmed for the movie, it was photographed in three different costumes on three different occasions, in over forty different partial or complete takes. Judy Garland prerecorded the song on September 3, 1953 and the number was first filmed on Wednesday, October 21, 1953...

Thanks again for the images, Brent and Laura - and what a fabulous job you did making the period clothing, Laura!

From Jim Rohn's Newsletter - 11/03/14 - "Unlock the potential of your mind with these 3 steps.":
3 Keys to Finding Your Genius - by Jim Rohn
It is up to you to do the work of changing your beliefs, because when you do, you will be opening up new worlds—literally. The truth is that you have an amazing mind with a capacity for learning that is beyond your comprehension. You must believe this and feed your mind with valuable information. And when you do, you will be unlocking the potential of your mind. Here are three steps to help you find your genius:
1. Get the right knowledge. Words—if they are not true—are meaningless. I hear children say, “I read it in a book.” But is it true? Just because someone says it or writes it, doesn't mean it is true. As learners, we want to get the right knowledge, not just information or opinions. It is our job to seek out information and knowledge and then test it and run it through our minds to see if it is true and if it can be rightfully applied to our lives in order to make them better. We need to weigh and measure what we learn in order to gain the right knowledge.
2. Become passionate about learning. This will take some work, but the only way to do it is to begin learning about things that have an immediate impact in your life. When you learn about a new financial concept that helps you earn money or get out of debt, you get fired up. When you learn about a way to communicate that helps you sell more products, you’ll feel energized. When you learn about how to interact with your family in a healthy way and your relationships get better, you’ll feel inspired.
3. Discipline yourself through
the hard work of study.
Learning will take work. Until someone comes up with modules that can
plug into your mind and give you instant access to knowledge, you are on
your own, and that takes work. The process of learning is a long one.
Yes, we can speed it up, but it is still a process of reading,
listening, reviewing, repetition, applying the knowledge, experiencing
the outcomes, readjusting, etc. Simply put, it takes time. Slowly but
surely, when you discipline yourself, you will gain knowledge and begin
