I spent about 15 hours creating this scrapbook layout this past weekend:

UTCM-TG.jpg

[Edited 6/3/20 10:33am]

Edited: [LPP - Le Petite Prince doll creator: Troy Gua, source/credited] - luv4u]



I contacted Troy and this is his response verbatim:

"Wowz! Nah, no need - no harm being done. I should be flattered, I suppose smile Thank you for asking though"



So, basically he has given his blessing to allow this pic posted on the thread. Thank you Troy.

You still published it here, and that's using someone else's work without permission for public viewing. I mean, you have Troy's LPP logo in there, too. It's just a crappy collage using someone else's material. It's unoriginal and juvenile.

If it offends you so much, then please ask a moderator to delete it.


It's very creative, the way you matched the scenes in the movie with the dolls. Now that credit is posted and the artist is fine with it, please keep scrapbooking! [Snip - luv4u] hug

It’s his best film. Most people don’t get it. They complain he copied Morris Day’s persona when in fact he came up with it. This Prince is closest to real prince It’s essentially a black comedy film. Only part I don’t like is the end and the fact that he died. I also love how it was shot in black and white.

Why don't you make a post on a forum at https://www.scrapbook.com/ about how cheap and juvenile scrapbooking as artwork is to you and see what happens. You are a cyber bully.

With it's flaws I love Under the Cherry Moon. Say what you will you are getting Prince essence in this film when he still 'innocently' was in full purple Utopian mode Paisley Park Uptown

Too bad he felt to mimick Morris & Jerome ie Purple Rain

The Kid lighter would have fit

The Revolution should have been in the film(can you imagine the video for Girls & Boys in the movie spot??) the Family ie High Fashion performed at Mary Sharons birthday party Sheila E A Love Bizarre at one of the night spots in the movie

The first part of the movie was actually pretty good. Christopher playing piano in the Venus de Milo spot. The Christopher Tracy's Parade(gold suit) driving around being playful at the market, was a really cool scene, giving us visuals of Nice France. The part at Mary Sharons party was good. It started getting bad when he fell in love lol and he and Tricky were fighting. I didn't like the push of him trashing her for her families wealth like he was some kind of sympathic hero. He wasn't

But overall I can watch UTCM start to finish. The soundtrack/music was spectacular. Graffiti Bridge made me feel like someone pulled my pants down in front of my family friends and neighbors.

Once upon a time in France

Smile, Katy, you're naked.

I'll smile when you pay me the two months' rent you owe me.

Hmm?

Okay, you two, don't try anything funny.

Not this time, Christopher.

I want the money or I'll throw you both out onto the street.

Please, madam, look at these poor, innocent faces.

These mean streets are no place for a couple of fine, decent...

Hoodlums like us.

Please, Katy, search in your heart for some kindness.

Why don't you try searching in your wallet for some money?

That's right, cousin.

Give her that Bela Lugosi look.

Throw me onto the street, hmm?

Yeah, there.

Perhaps madame would like to conduct a search.

Hmm. I wonder where that came from.

We going to marry her?

Ain't it about time we go for the big macaroni?

Mmm, I like her, but I'm looking for a bigger brand of macaroni.

Take a look at this and see if it whets your appetite.

Mary Sharon.

Her father owns half the ships on the Mediterranean.

He's got to be worth a billion, easy.

He kicked a billion asses to get it, too.

And that says what?

That says she gets a $50 million trust fund when she turns 21. - Which is today.

No. Let's go.

You going to marry her?

Mmm. For $50 million I would seriously consider it.

But guess what. I take 30% commission. Yes?

Mary Sharon. I wonder what tune she'd dance to.

tumblr_oaqo1iRgKT1uajyc0o1_500.gif

Just one moment.

I'll see.

Mrs. Wellington.

The lady in white.

Mrs. Wellington, he'll be right with you.

By the way, my name is Tricky.

Tricky, put the phone down.

I never dance before midnight.

But if you insist...

What? Right now?

I mean, here on the phone?

All right.

As you wish.

Hold on.

Uh-oh.

Here we go.

I am nothing without your touch my love

I am nothing without your kiss

2 spend each night

in your arms, my flower

Is this man's idea of bliss

2 not hear your voice each day

Is 2 die 7 times by God's wrath

If I was anything other than human

I'd be the water in your bath

Till then, my love, ciao

It's hard to compare it to Purple Rain due to the whole apples and oranges conundrum, but this movie has definitely aged much better than Purple Rain. PR is a nightmare with every other scene depicting the beating, humiliation, or other abuse of women, all of whom take it and keep coming back for more. You can't even blame it on "it was a different time", at least not to the extent that Purple Rain takes it. Protagonists in 80 movies didn't generally repeatedly beat the crap out of a woman and then end up with them.

I'd introduce a "Who is Prince?" friend to UTCM long before I'd show them Purple Rain.

I agree, horrible scenes of abusing women, like Prince slapping the hell out of Appolonia for wanting to join Morris's group, and Morris and Jerome throwing the woman in the dumpster, and laughing about it like it was so funny, not to mention Morris's famous "I want to see some asses wiggliing, I want some perfection" schtick, while the girls gyrated in from of him and Jerome.....awful!

This is such a cool piece in the film. It's the Linn mostly, and some Clare strings I think. When I made The Show Will Proceed, it was a fussy moment to find where the song was in the movie and blend it with Jill's song.

Of course in 1985, none of us knew for shit what it was from. I actually wonder how many knew straight away when hearing Jill's album that it was the same song. I didn't for years.

I didn't hear anyone laugh at those scenes in theaters during the 80s in multiple viewings in three different states.

The poster I was responding to said she was playing the song in question on a boombox.


Or maybe I misread that and the person was pointing out that a boombox wouldn't exist in the 1940's, in which case my bad

I seem to remember Prince saying in an interview around that time that he chose B&W for its "timeless" look. I interpreted that to mean he meant the same for the underlying story (boy meets unattainable girl; love binds them through all obstacles, even death).

That being said, Mary Sharon was vapid. What he saw in her, other than the dowry, beats me. In being spurned, Christopher seemed to be more interested in winning than being right. Tricky's slight introspective moment seemed more sincere emotionally.

Mary Sharon wanted to live free, spend her dowry unencumbered, and according to Chris T., discover what she wants out of life. Chris was just playing along with the flow of life, handling the "draws" portion of the partnership with his friend while doing nothing professionally, only for fun. Sounds like an equitable association between Mary & Christopher in this story, to me! Anyway, that pretty-well might have been a disastrous pairing, had Christopher survived to run off with his lady. Tricky was a much more pragmatic individual; he survived that whole mess and even won a sweet financial deal with the lady of the Cote' de Sur. Things worked out for ole' Tricky.

I forgot to mention that Katie was a dimwit and worse actor than Prince. Movie would have been far better without her (astounding she had the part written for her).
