  1. Sunset Boulevard second hand report: Received a text this morning from the before mentioned person who now lives out in CA and he did in fact get up early this AM and while it was a hard decision between Sunset Blvd and The Magnificent Ambersons he chose Sunset, but I digress... He got up up early and headed down to Hollywood and got in line early at the Chinese Theatre (the text says 11:18am here so 8:18am there) and was11th in line for tickets. After the film and event a phone call revealed that: Sunset Boulevard actress Nancy Olson appeared and gave a 20-25 minute talk on the film and her experiences. One story mentioned was how BIlly Wilder asked her to keep kissing William Holden until Wilder said "CUT." He did not get the chance as Mrs William Holden was on the set that day and beat him to the direction. If anyone attended the Magnifcent Ambersons showing and panel please post anything new or just anything by Peter Bogdanovich and David Kamp. That's all from me...not there in body, but in spirit for sure. Take Care and Enjoy!

  5. Picked up *In My Father's Shadow: A Daughter Remembers Orson Welles* over the holidays and am reading it now. So far a interesting and fascinating read. The book mixes Christopher Welles Feder's globe trotting and famous encounters with down to earth events that show what not only grounded her, but also connects one with the author. At the center of the story is Chrissie's love for her father. While I am half way through I recommend this book very much!
  6. Aldrich, Robert directed Kiss Me Deadly (1955)
  7. This is not only WONDERFUL news, but a breath of fresh air on a cold day! Yesterday I tried to purchase what looks to be a superb release from Warner (50th Anniversary "North By Northwest" Blu-Ray) and my local Columbus,OH Target ordered 0 and the Barnes & Noble down the way...ordered 1. The mentality of buyers who fill the shelves with "I Love You Beth Cooper", "Confessions of a Shopaholic" and "Taking of Pelham 123", but not "North By Northwest" baffles me. NBNW is not a run of the mill film by any stretch and the director is perhaps known in most households. Anyway...Thanks TCM for this news...I hope to pack up and head West as you fling open the doors to Grauman's and the other venues where at least for a moment in time we will celebrate classic films on the big screen! YES! Edited by: cubswin1984 on Nov 4, 2009 11:34 AM
