Twist And Shout

I’m sitting in the hotel room here in Baton Rouge channel surfing and I just came across one of the funniest movies of the 80’s at the point of one of the best scenes in the film; “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and the Chicago street parade scene where Ferris sings “Twist and Shout” while the parade goers and even nearby workers (including his dad in an office above him) sing and dance along.

I love that scene.

Just thought you’d like to know.

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.

    HAHAH you know what I remember from that movie? The scene where they were delivering a Get Well bouquet with the hot nurse and J and I spent forever trying to figure out what that LAST word was she would say before the door got slammed in her face. It drove us crazy hehehe.

  2. Here’s what the shooting script shows for that scene:

    180 EXT. HOUSE. FRONT DOOR 180

    The door swings open.


    Her jaw goes slack. She blinks her eyes.


    The Delivery Man and a young ASSISTANT are standing at the
    door with floral arrangements. Spread all around them are
    more flowers. A sexy singing NURSE and a BALLOON MAN steps
    up on the porch.


    The door slams shut.

    I didn’t catch all of the movie this time, but I thought there was more to it than that.
