  Chicago Trivia
  Rob Marshall (Chicago Director): It's really about fame and
  1)celebrity and about how we, as a culture or as an audience, applaud and celebrate people for not necessarily the right reasons. The concept that we used was, Roxie was the dreamer, Roxie is the dreamer in the movie. She's the
  2)wannabe, she wants desperately to be on stage, so she sees her life through musical
  3)sequences. And we're constantly
  4)cutting back between the story and the reality of the story and these musical sequences, so they become one
  5)linear story as we're jumping back and forth between the two realities. And that's, it was embracing the fact that all these numbers took place on stage, instead of trying to sort of
  6)disguise that or change that, that made the whole piece fly.
  Richard Gere ("Billy Flynn"): She sees me as a... I'm introduced to her as a protector. I'm the one who can get you off. So she has this kind of vision of me as this guy who's kind of a... of a
  7)Lancelot character, just goes around helping women in
  8)distress, which is, once you see the movie, is very far from....
  Catherine Zeta-Jones ("Velma Kelly"): She's a wannabe who thinks she's made it. She's a star in her mind. And she goes to... she goes to jail and through the, you know, the different characters that she meets where she's on top at one point and then she's down in the gutter, and she builds herself back up as this kind of survival, and an "I will survive" element of it all. And, but she's just so hungry for it, she thinks she has it and she never wants to let it go. I love, I've loved working with Renee so much. I think, I think she just, she just, I keep saying to her it's like she's been plucked out of a black and white photograph of the time, but it's
  9)Technicolor. She's, she did a
  10)phenomenal job on this. And we, it's great that she's a great person to work off and work with. You have a lot of fun, catty, catty fun together.
  Renee Zellweger ("Roxie Hart"): She's so
  11)covetous of the idea of acquiring fame because of what she thinks it represents and what she believes it will bring self-esteem, self-respect, self-worth, love... all the things that she doesn't have a lot of. And she's sure; sure, sure that if she is
  12)lionized in that way by the masses, in the way that Velma Kelly is, she has that thing that she'll be more whole as a person.
  《芝加哥》花絮
  罗勃?马歇尔(《芝加哥》导演)∶这部电影讲述的是声望和名誉,也讲述我们--无论代表一种文化还是作为一名观众--为一些人喝彩欢呼的理由也许并不恰当。我们用的概念是:洛茜是个梦想者,洛茜在剧中是个有梦想的人。她一心出人头地,花尽心思要登上舞台,所以她在一首首歌曲中幻构自己的生活。我们在片中把故事与现实不断地来回切换,在两个现实间跳跃,渐渐地让歌曲串成剧情。所有的故事都发生在舞台上,我们没有刻意地要去掩饰、改变这点,因此却使得整个影片不同凡响。
  理查?基尔(“比利?弗林”)∶ 她(洛茜)把我看成是……我是以保护者身份介绍给她认识的。在片中我很能替人脱罪。所以她就把我看作是,有点像兰斯洛特那种人,总是到处英雄救美,看了这片子,你会觉得超乎想象……
  凯瑟琳?泽塔-琼斯(“威尔玛?凯丽”)∶她(凯丽)想出人头地,踌躇满志。在自己的心目中她是个明星。她进了……进了监狱,遇到各种各样的人物,她曾经活得很得意,接着却落魄潦倒,但她重新站了起来,很有一种求生的意志,就是“我一定要活下去”的那种信念。还有,她太渴望得到成功,想着拥有了就绝不再让它失去。我喜欢,我很喜欢和芮妮合作。我觉得她太出色了……我常对她说,她像是黑白片人物跻身进到了彩色电影中。她演得实在出色。和她共事很开心。能得到很多乐趣,和她在一起特别、特别有意思。
  芮妮?齐薇格(“洛茜?哈特”):她(洛茜)太渴望成名了,因为她觉得成名同时也带来了自尊、自重、自我价值、爱情……所有这些都是她缺乏的。她很相信很相信,如果她能成为像威尔玛?凯丽那样的人们的宠儿,那她作为一个人就更完整了。

  Me and Writing
  This was the summer that I think I became a writer. I was thirteen years old. I wore steel-rimmed glasses and I was a very
  1)solemn boy. Not that I was sad, but I simply was paying attention. I'd been given a typewriter by my Uncle George, when he got an electric. He gave me his old Underwood typewriter and I set it up in the
  2)basement. I had a secret place under the stairs behind a
  3)stack of sheet rock. I sat in there and wrote where my parents could not see me because they were worried, you know, that I didn't go outside. And they believed in the
  4)illusion of a balanced life, you know, you do a little bit of this, you do a little bit of that. I just wanted to do one thing. I just wanted to find things to write about.
  I liked to write about
  5)tornadoes: Tornadoes, which come out of a peaceful summer day in the Midwest. And the sky's blue and then suddenly it's dark as night and this great snake-like cloud comes slithering across the
  6)landscape,
  7)smashing houses at random, destroying this one, leaving this standing. I liked that idea.
  I wrote a story, a sort of
  8)autobiographical story, about a family from New York, a microbiologist and his actress wife, and their son, who looked, and walked, and talked, and thought, and felt exactly like me. I sat in the
  9)backseat and they were driving across the Midwest, and they forgot me... at a gas station. We stopped for a rest stop... and they forgot me, and they drove away. I walked up the road that they had driven and suddenly the sky turned dark and... a tornado came up and it picked me up and it carried me and dropped me, uninjured, in the yard of a
  10)sanctified
  11)Brethren family. I knocked on the door and a woman in a white
  12)satin gown holding a flaming
  13)torch came out and asked me what I wanted. And I was going to tell them that I had to leave to look for my parents and then the dog spoke to me. The dog said, "Stay." So, I stayed. But still, I missed the life of
  14)glamour that I had known on New York's
  15)exclusive Upper West Side. I love to write stories like that.
  I sat there at my Underwood typewriter, but I wished that something real would happen.
  That was the summer that my cousin, Helen-Marie, came to stay with us suddenly. She was seventeen. She was four years older than I and I'd always admired her. She was lovelier than the rest of us. The rest of us had our family's looks; we had
  16)homely faces and she was pretty. She had
  17)blonde hair, a rarity in our family.
  Then I wrote a story about her; about a girl who is cooking lunch at home one day and a woman in a white satin dress holding a flaming torch bursts in through the door, and it startles the girl so much that she drops the
  18)cast iron skillet on her dog and the dog bites her and she gets an
  19)incurable blood disease from this. Doctors give her two weeks to live, and then, on top of everything, a tornado comes in and it blows the roof off the house and it
  20)impales four blades of grass in her side. And there's something on that grass that cures that blood disease. Medical science has never seen anything like it. She's cured. She comes home. And that night the dog
  21)scratches on her door, and the dog says, "Aren't you curious to know what it was on the grass that cured that blood disease?" I sort of liked the story.
  我笔下的奇异世界
  我想当作家的念头是在这个夏天冒出来的。那年我十三岁了,戴着一副银边眼镜,是个不苟言笑的男孩。倒不是因为心情不好,我只是在琢磨事儿。乔治叔叔买了一台电打字机后,就把手打打字机给了我。他给我的是一台安德伍牌老式打字机,我把它架在地下室里。楼梯下石砖墙后是我的密室。我坐在里面写东西,爸妈看不到我,你知道,我之所以要秘密行事是因为他们担心我总不出门。他们相信生活应该有多方面平衡,就是让你做做这个又做做那个。而我只想做一件事--练笔。
  我想写写龙卷风:一个平静的夏日里,在中西部骤然刮起了龙卷风。蔚蓝的天空霎时间变得像夜晚一样漆黑,蛇一般的巨大烟云卷过地面,将房屋揉得粉碎,摧毁了这间,放过了那间。我太喜欢写龙卷风了。
  我写了一个故事,自传式的故事,说的是一个纽约家庭,家里有一个微生物学家,当演员的妻子,还有他们的儿子--那孩子的模样和走路、说话、思考的方式简直跟我一样。我坐在汽车的后座,他们开车穿越中西部,后来他们把我忘在了一个加油站。我们停车休息,然后他们就把我给落下了,开车走了。我沿着他们车驶去的方向走着,突然间,天空暗了下来, 龙卷风大作,风卷起我吹啊吹,毫发不伤地把我扔在一个圣教徒家的后院里。我敲敲门,一个身穿白色缎袍的女人举着一把熊熊的火炬,走出来问我想干什么。我正想说我想去找我的爸妈,一条狗冲着我说话了:“留下来吧。”于是,我就留下了。但是,我还是很怀念在纽约高尚住宅区的好日子。我就喜欢写这样的故事。
  我坐在安德伍牌打字机前,想写些真实的事儿。
  那年夏天,我的表姐海伦-玛莉突然来我们家住下。她十七岁,比我大四岁,我很喜欢她。她比我们家的其他人都可爱。其他人都有着家族的容貌特征,脸蛋儿一点儿也不起眼,她却很漂亮。那一头金发在我们家族里是极少见的。
  于是我就写了一个关于她的故事,说的是有一天,一个女孩正在家里做午饭时,有个穿着白色缎袍的女人手里举着熊熊的火炬从门外闯了进来,女孩吓了一大跳,把铁锅砸到了她的狗,狗咬了她一口,她从此就得了一种没法治的血液病。医生说她只能活两个星期了,这时,一股龙卷风刮了进来,它掀掉屋顶,四片草叶子刺到她的身上。草叶子上面的什么东西就把她的血液病给治好了。医学上从来没有见过这种奇事。她痊愈了,回到了家。那天晚上,小狗抓挠着她的房门,那狗问她说:“你难道不想知道草叶子上面是什么东西治好了你的血液病吗?”我喜欢这样的故事。

  My Friend, Sherlock Holmes
  Thank you. It's a great
  1)privilege to be invited to address such an
  2)august body. I only wish that Holmes could be here too, but, as you may know, he has now retired to the country to study the art of
  3)apiary -
  4)beekeeping, as it's more commonly known. Now, my memory has never been entirely reliable but I will do my best to answer the question, which I think is on everybody's lips, "What was he like to know?" Sherlock Holmes.
  Well, of course, we have the case histories. Holmes, very kindly, allowed me to retell our adventures in a series of late
  5)Victorian
  6)publications, of which Strand Magazine in London and Colliers in the United States of America, are the best known.
  We lived, of course, in Baker Street, in west London. Ahh, happy days. Two twenty-one B was the
  7)epitome of a comfortable late Victorian residence, and around him, Holmes kept those items essential to his profession and to our relaxation.
  He recognized his amazing powers of
  8)deduction when he pointed out that I had just returned from Afghanistan. How did he know? Well, he explained later: I'd been introduced to him
