Comment:        Re: SHK 4.0433  Film and Videotape
 
A propos of Tad Davis's query about the difference between film and
video-tape, there is a famous Monty Python segment in which one of the
regulars (John Cleese, if I remember) rushes from a room onto a porch, back
into the room, back onto the porch, and back into the room--the p.o.v. of the
camera changing from an interior to an exterior shot and back, with the
BBC's traditional accompanying shift in medium--and announces, with some
panic, "we're surrounded by film!"

When boy actors played the parts of women, did they use their natural voices
or did they act feminine voices? Any info on this is appreciated.
