Question 6) Describe Walter Mitty's exchange with the garage attendant in James Thurber's "The secret life of walter mitty". Answer 6) When Walter's fantasy is interrupted by the garage attendant, he realizes he had entered a parking garage.
Answer: After getting the puppy biscuits, Walter Mitty sees a leather chair that was facing a window in the hotel lobby, and he decided to sit there with an old copy of the Liberty.
The multiplex match-ups of fall and the holidays may not feature the battles between megabudget blockbusters that this summer did, but they have the added intrigue that the awards season brings.
There are several head-to-head battles between prestige Oscar hopefuls and films that, well, aren’t prestige or Oscar hopefuls.
On the heels of a record-breaking summer that made up for a lackluster spring, the overall box office is at $1.18 billion, roughly one percent ahead of where 2012 was at a similar stage.
One’s an Oscar-bait tale of modern-day heroism starring Tom Hanks, the other is an over-the-top violent action thriller starring Danny Trejo, Lady Gaga, Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, and features Sofia Vergara in a machine-gun bra. What’s scarier, a teen girl unleashing telekinetic terror on a small town after a really lousy prom or the fact that Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger are in their mid-60s and still making action movies?
He had just watched the Ben Stiller film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty on TV, knows I visited Iceland in 2009 and wanted to talk about it. I want to be sure that you have a clear understanding of the words we use in class (no more blank stares!) so be sure you are looking up words you don't feel you yet "own" (means, making it a part of your personal vocabulary) by utilizing your dictionaries to the fullest.
When he says that sometimes he is thinking, he is referring to the daydreams that he sees while he goes through his everyday tasks. Also as you read, you can tell where Walter is daydreaming because the story switches from him being in the Navy, flying a plane and then reality sets in and ita€™s actually him driving him and his wife around.
He goes because his wife likes him to be there so that when she is done she can find him because she notices his memory and going away. After sitting on a chair in the lobby of a hotel, Walter Mitty picked a Liberty magazine that quoted, "Can Germany Conquer the World Though the Air?" (Thurber 4).
In his second day dream he was playing as a doctor in the operating room and the machine was malfunctioning and was causing the loud noise once again. In his last daydream, Walter lights up a cigarette and leans back on the wall and snaps out of it. She was like a drill sergeant the whole time always telling him every little thing to do and he never said anything to her about it. This is proved when Mitty says, a€?she would want him waiting for her as usual.a€?He had only fifteen minutes to get back to the hotel before she was done at the hair salon.
Even though he has an alibi, he is one of the best shooters with a pistol and could have killed him with either end.
Currently he is directing his lieutenant in steering the hydroplane as they are trying to go through a hurricane.
Walter Mitty believes that he is more important than poor people so when he is unable to do something he feels embarrassed because he believes he should know.
On the other hand, everyone treated him so well in his dreams and was known to be the best, he was captain, etc. He flew some sort of model of aircraft bomber and was drinking with his sergeant in the midst of a war (Thurber 4). Walter often versioned himself as being in unrealistic situations that would involve him being some type of hero or romantic when in reality he was just an old man who could barely keep up with the world let alone his wife. At the beginning of the story, the reader witnesses Walter Mitty as a commander screaming a€?Wea€™re going through (Thurber 1)!a€?. Mitty in James Thurbera€™s a€?The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.a€? How does she bring him out of his daydream? As Walter drives pass a hospital while on his way to the parking lot, his second daydream is triggered and thata€™s where is duty as a surgeon steps in (2). The garage attendant tells him to just leave the car where it is and he'll park it which makes Walter angry because he thinks the attendant is being arrogant.
Once seated Walter Mitty started reading the newspaper which read, a€?Can Germany Conquer the World Through the Air?a€? In this newspaper, a€?Walter Mitty looked at the pictures of the bombing planes and of ruined streetsa€? (Thurber 4). A lucky few movies may combine awards appeal with commercial success, but that’s not easy. Pre-Halloween is an ideal slot for Sony’s remake of the 1976 horror classic, and a $20 million opening looks likely for the screamer, which stars Chloe Moretz.
My wife and I saw the film earlier when it first hit our local movie theater and we like it a lot.What did you think of the segment of the film that took place in Iceland?
In the beginning if the story he starts with a daydream and in the end he puts, a€?a€¦a€? to show the daydream ends and reality starts. This is the climax of the story because you have no idea what is really going on with him, you have no idea why he is seeing these different times and then when he tells his wife that he is thinking, the whole story comes together and you can understand why he was seeing what he sees. All of the sudden, Captain Mitty appears to save the day, as he had done previously in his other daydreams. His last day dream involved him being in war and the noise seem to have come from a€?a€¦the new flame-throwers.a€? The noise must be coming from the old chair that he is sitting In because he recalls the noise as being recognizable and his wife mentioned when she found him that he tends to hide in that chair. That moment is the climax of the story because he showed his bravery by speaking to her about it. In the text, the courtroom goes into commotion with the lines: a€?suddenly a lovely, dark-haired girl was in Walter Mitty's arms.
The garage man was called the a€?grinning garagemana€? and the garageman thought to himself that if he changed his appearance to something sad that Mr. Also, when he enters into a daydream, he is treated with much more respect than he is in reality.
His wife asks him to go on various shopping errands to get groceries a€?toothpaste, toothbrush, carbonatea€? (Thurber 3) Walter Mitty hates going on errands but he especially hates it when he has to ask for help from poor people. All the other fantasies he imagines himself in build up to his wife interrupting him for the final time before he snaps back at her.
The story started off with the quote a€?Wea€™re going througha€? (Thurber 1) where Mitty vison himself in the navy driving a plane but he actually was just driving with his wife in the car on the way to the hairdresser.


He is dressed in a full-dress uniform, with the heavily braided white cap pulled down (1).a€? The uniform and title of commander of Walter Mitty suggests that Walter Mitty is in some organization with ranks, such as the marine corps, army, or military.
She once says, a€?a€™Ia€™m going to take your temperature when I get you homea€™a€? (Thurber 5) when Walter Mitty begins to not make much sense.
Next time he goes to get his chains taken off his tires he is going to wear a sling on his arm so that they don't make fun of him for needing help.
Last year, when six of the nine Best Picture Oscar nominees crossed the $100 million mark domestically, was an anomaly. Will Farrell and Steve Carell aren’t the draws they were when the original generated a ton of hipster love that turned it into a cult hit back in 2004. Did the film portray things fairly accurately?Is Iceland’s ban on stripper bars still in place? Here we think he is in a plane at the beginning of the story but later on we find out he is not, hea€™s just daydreaming.
The sergeant tries to bring him to reason, but as any hero would have done, Mitty decides to fly alone to prevent the enemies from acquiring ammunition. You know Walter was proud of himself because Thurber wrote, a€?Then, with that faint, fleeting smile playing about his lips, he faced the firing squad; erect and motionless, proud and disdainful, Walter Mitty the Undefeated, inscrutable to the lasta€? (Thurber, 5).
Two triggers cause Walter to have his second day dream, His wife making him put on is driving gloves, a€?He put them on, but after she turned and gone into the building and he had driven on to a red light, he took them off againa€? (Thurber, 2).
Walter Mittya€™s fourth daydream was triggered when he a€?picked up an old copy of Liberty and sank down into the chaira€? (Thurber 4). She constantly references throughout the story every time she would interrupt a fantasy of his that she was wondering if he was alright. Use quoted passages from the text to support the part of your answer that appears in your words.
He also fantasizes about him being a surgeon and a British pilot and a romantic about to die for his love all while being out with his wife.
In this case, Walter Mitty is a commander in the Navy, when it is mentioned that the crew is on a€?a eight-engined Navy hydroplane (1).a€? In the dream, Walter Mitty is commanding his crew how to operate the hydro-plane while going through a storm.
The supporting cast in in the Fox thriller includes Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem and Cameron Diaz, which should pique moviegoers’ curiosity. The reason I’m asking this question is because there is a scene in the film where Ben Stiller gets off a ship in an Icelandic port and races several Portuguese (?) sailors to a bicycle so he can continue his quest.
You MUST put the page number (or, paragraph number if there are no page numbers) in parentheses after any quotation used. Before he leaves the room in his dream, he hums, "AprA?s de ma blonde" or "next to my girlfriend" in French to beautiful nurse who was attending one of the soldiers (Thurber 4); she smiled at his words. The second trigger is Walter driving by a hospital after dropping his wife off at the hairdressers, a€?[a€¦] and then he drove past the hospital on his way to the parking lota€? (Thurber, 2). So, next time when he comes the garage to take the chains off the car he would put his arm in a sling to seem like he cana€™t physically take the chains off himself and therefore people would not make fun of him.
Every time she would interrupt him he would immediately see something else and dive back into another fantasy relating to what he saw.
The theme is revealed through Mitty because he is the main character who fantasizes himself with his huge imagination but he knows that he is just an old man who cana€™t seem to comprehend his wifea€™s small tasks. Walter Mitty tends to daydream quite a bit throughout the story and his wife is probably used to it by now.
The text states, a€?Ia€™ll have my right arm in a sling and theya€™ll see I couldna€™t possibly take the chains off myselfa€? (Thurber 3). Walter Mitty tends to take things he hears or sees around him and then inserts himself into a similar situation. This time though his wife interrupts him and he snaps back at her only to hear her reply for the final time that she truly thinks something is wrong with him as she says a€?Im going to take your temperature when I get homea€? (Thurber 5).
Right after we think Walter is in a plane, flying, we figure out he is driving him and his wife around. During the story Walter Mitty plays different roles during his daydreams; however, all resemble the idea of heroism. He does things to dance around the main issue instead of going headstrong towards the conflict. Also when he ask himself to remember what his wife told him to get at the store, he becomes a defendant as he is on trial answering the prosecutions answers. A boys shouts about a trail, then hea€™s on the witness stand for a murder charge (Thurber 3). He began to walk out with his wife and then smoked his cigarette as he leaned back against the wall and for the last time imagines his final fantasy of him preparing to die honorably before a firing squad. The district attorney suddenly thrust a heavy automatic at the quiet figure on the witness stand" (Thurber 3). Parts of it seemed like an Inspired by Iceland commercial.Scenes were shot in Grundarfjor?ur and Stykkisholmur on Sn?fellsnes peninsula in West Iceland, in Hofn and on Vatnajokull glacier in Southeast Iceland, and in Sey?isfjor?ur in East Iceland.
He always seems a bit upset whenever anyone wakes him from his fantasies so his anger might not necessarily be aimed at her but just people in general. Walter Mitty was in Sey?isfjor?ur in East Iceland when he witnessed Eyjafjallajokull erupt, but according to the map that he carried, he was in Stykkisholmur in West Iceland and the volcano was located in the town’s vicinity. This is probably due to the fact that in his own life, he feels unimportant and completely ordinary. He once thinks a€?she seemed grossly unfamiliar, like a strange woman who had yelled at him in a crowda€? (1).
He is obviously not including his marriage in his daydreams which might elude to his being unhappy in the marriage.
Mitty is a good person based on her two appearances in the story where she worries about his wellbeing both times. We have shown that he wore his right arm on a sling on the night of the fourteenth of July. Finally, while waiting for his wife to get his hair done, Mitty picks up a magazine and starts picturing and imagining to be a British pilot willing to sacrifice his life for his country.
