Listen to the information about the popular film “Titanic” and do the task <Слайд 1>
Hi. My name is Jane. I liked Titanic very much. Titanic is a film by James Cameron, an American director. As soon as it appeared on the screens, it became extremely popular. The scene that grabbed me the most was one of sinking of the Titanic. It is so true to life, magnificent and horrible at the same time. The music of James Horner created a special atmosphere in the film. It is full of new special effects. Both the ship and the ocean are virtual, created by computers. The love-story about Jack and Rose, a young poor artist and a 17 – year old girl from the upper society is very touching. Titanic was really worth eleven “Oscar” awards. Critics say the film has opened a new era in the film production. I think they are right.
Do you agree or disagree with my opinion?
1. I agree with Jane’s opinion. I liked Titanic very much too. This film is very exciting. It made me cry. This film brought a great success to Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslent who starred in the film. It is full of new special effects created by computers. The love-story about Jack and Rose is very touching.
2. I agree with Jane’s opinion. This film is really interesting. It has become a blockbuster and brought big profits to the producers. The reasons are on the one hand the thrilling plot of the film and on the other hand new technologies of film making used by James Cameron. Titanic is the largest screen version of the tragedy happened in 1912 during the voyage of the British passenger liner. I like music very much. I think critics are right. This film has opened a new era in the film production.
3. I don’t agree with Jane’s opinion. I didn’t like this film. I think it is a romance for girls. It is full of tears. To my mind it is a very boring film. The plot is a little weak. It is too dramatic. It puts me in a bad mood. I prefer films about adventures in space, especially I like “Star Wars”. They are great.
Titanic was really worth eleven Oscars. What is the “Oscar”? What is the statuette? Who knows? <Слайды 2, 3>
The Oscars are awarded every year by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science. These statuettes are awarded to actors, film directors, screenwriters and so on for outstanding contributions to the film industry. The statuette is a soldier standing on a reel of a film. Nobody is really sure why it is called an Oscar, although some people say that it is because when the first statuette was made, a secretary said, “It reminds me of my Uncle Oscar!”
Thank you for your answer.

Choose the most interesting facts from the life of Walt Disney for the TV program “Famous people” <Слайды 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10>
Walt Disney was an American artist and film producer, who was famous for his animated cartoons. He was born on December 5, 1901 in Chicago, his father being Irish Canadian, his mother of German – American origin. In his early childhood he revealed a talent for drawing and an interest in photography. In his teens he began an art course but World War I broke out and he drove for the Red Cross in Europe.
When he got back to America he met artist Ub Iwerks and they went into business together.
In 1923 he left with his brother for Hollywood. Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks made a series of short cartoons but lost all their money, and for some years struggled against poverty. Luckily, Walt's brother Roy gave him more to start up again. The first talking picture came out in 1927 and Disney realized that sound held the key to the future of films. He developed many techniques in producing cartoons.
His most famous characters are Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Pluto. The first Mickey Mouse cartoon was drawn in 1928. It was the first sound cartoon, which brought great success to its creator. In the early cartoons he was really horrible. He looked quite rat-like with long pointed nose and small eyes. Later his face changed. His head got as big as his body or almost, his eyes got bigger, too. He got younger instead of older. That makes him cuter. Now it is an acceptable symbol for the USA. Donald Duck was created in 1936. Walt Disney took the biggest risk of his career and spent a fortune on a full-length cartoon. Finally, the first full length cartoon feature film "Show White and the Seven Dwarfs" was brought out in 1935, which the public paid millions of dollars to see. The songs to the cartoon were written by Frank Churchill.
After the Second World War, Disney turned his attention to real – life nature studies and non-cartoon films with living actors.
In the 1950s and 1960s Walt Disney began developing the family-entertainment parks, Disneyland and Disney World. The first Disneyland was opened in southern California in 1955.
It is situated 27 miles south of Los Angeles, at Anaheim. Of all the show-places none is as famous as Disneyland. This superb kingdom of fantasy linked to technology was created by Walt Disney. The park is divided into six themes and there is so much to see and do in each that no one would attempt to see all of them in one visit. For extended visits, there are hotels nearby. In 1971 Disney World was opened in Florida.
Walt Disney died in California at the age of 65. But his films are still shown regularly at the cinema, because of their timeless quality and will be shown for years to come.
Walter (Walt) Elias Disney has won more "Oscars" than any other person: 20 statuettes and 12 other plagues and certificates, including posthumous awards.
