Anita Louise did indeed play the harp.
“The Other Sister” has a wedding harpist
Serendipidy has a wedding harpist
Annie – Grace plays the harp (on the wrong side) during “We’ve Got Annie”
There also is a Shirly Temple movie, when she was a young adult where the love interest’s girl friend is a harpist and performs for a garden full of listeners
The Kay Kendall/ Yul Brenner movie – “One More Time with Feeling” is a hoot!
here is a clip from Our Man Flint – the bad lady takes the place of the harpist in mid song, and uses a string a la Harpo to shoot a poisoned needle at someone!!!! Oh, well, it is in color and the first harpist looks like she is actually playing – maybe some of you will recognize her – looks a bit like Gayle Levant to me – – –InactiveAnonymous on August 13, 2007 at 2:58 am #111203
Thank you David, for your very kind words about the AHJ article.
Yes, it’s such a hoot. A humble little working class cottage and a big fancy style 11 (I think–something shiny, anyway). She’s always talking to the kids through the strings and there’s a voiceover i one scene about thanking God for various things, including “the harp in the parlor.”
I just saw Paul Baker playing harp live, Godefroid’s “Romance Without Words (Bois Solitaire)” in the 1990 movie “Framed” starring Jeff Goldblum and Kristin Scott Thomas. He’s playing at an outdoor engagement party and there are a couple of closeups of him while he is playing it which is really cool. On the DVD it is in Chapter 7, “Wealth.” It’s sort of funny how they lead up to it. Jeff and his sidekick are crashing the party through bushes and the sidekick is ranting on about “…not to harp on this…” and then they hear the harp through the bushes… “Hey, do you hear a HARP?”
