The directing style of Woody in this one baffles me, he constantly cuts faces, shows only certain body parts and more than often there is no emphasis on the person who is speaking in the frame.
My favourite example is in the jewellery shop scene.
Here we only see the jeweller's hand, only after some time do we get to see his face even then it is a abrupt close-up.
Later, when Norton starts singing his face is partly visible et.
What could be the possible explanation for such weird directing style?
