I did notice the photos John took of him and Charlotte and saw how he put himself in the center of the images, but I had forgotten that Bob also took some shots. This is a nice essay.

"Juno"

I kept hearing how good this was, so I went to see it the other day. I liked it. Without going into detail, it's about a young girl who, in the course of a pregnancy, figures out what parts of herself she needs to jettison and what parts she should cherish. The acting is very good. Juno is played by...

Back in the mid-seventies, Atlanta Rhythm Section had several hit songs that were widely played on FM radio.

I never cared. To me it was just a curiosity. It would be a great movie with or without it.

I've seen it plenty of times, but I don't worry too much about seeing a movie too many times. God knows there are a ton of lousy flicks out there and I lose nothing by missing them.

Movies I've probably watched too many times: "Animal House," "Star Wars," and "The Sure Thing."

Yeah, the reflection in the glasses is ghoulish. Another good one is when Bruno walks by the merry go round early in the movie. And if you get to see "The Lady Vanishes," be sure to pay close attention to the characters Charters and Caldicott. Those guys are absolutely hilarious as caricatures of Br...

"Strangers in a Train" is an awesome movie. Some of the images in it are incredible. "The Lady Vanishes" is my favorite Hitchcock movie.

Also, I don't feel that Jimmy Stewart was too old for his role in Rear Window; I think his pairing with Grace Kelly (a Hitchcock favorite to say the least) given their respective ages was in perfect accord with the narrative of the film. It was a pleasure to see two such great actors together in a ...

Comparing "Roman Holiday" with "LiT"

Did Sophia Coppola see "Roman Holiday?" I've been a big Gregory Peck fan since I was a kid, but everything I watched with him in it featured him in one of his he-man, war movie roles. I recently read a biography of Audrey Hepburn, which gave a pretty detailed account of the making of "Roman Holiday....

Someone correct me if I'm wrong here, but wasn't Harvey Keitel originally supposed to play Willard? It seems that he had some kind of breakdown, so they brought in Sheen.

I know that the Jesus and Mary Chain have several CDs. They recently played at the Coachella Festival and Scarlett sang with them on "Just Like Honey." It didn't sound very good, but it was interesting to watch. There are some clips of it at YouTube.
