Globe and Mail: Oprah's Turning Kindness into Cold Hard Cash. Again, we have the reality show, vote them off the island, mentality. The winning do-gooder gets the bundle, losers get humiliated. This is America folks. I wish Oprah would get Bill Schambra as one of the judges.
Pumped to a person, the angels of mercy wheel out in enormous black SUVs.
Why not mopeds. Or goat carts.
Oddly enough, however, the director thought that Porgy had to be more of a man to attract Bess; so he chose to eliminate Porgy's goat cart and to substitute crutches; the goat cart was "Disneyish," Nunn said. Thus in the final scene Porgy, on his way to New York in pursuit of Bess, throws away his crutches, calls for his "coat" (not his goat) and limps off the stage!
