I have no idea if I’ll want to do this on a weekly basis, but today I felt like it. I watched five films since last Sunday and all of them had something that distinguished them from just the ordinary.
This is my very short story of meeting director Edward Dmytryk.
Here’s my story about my meeting director Norman Jewison.
This doesn’t have much to do with vintage or classic films, but I’ve been thinking for quite a while that it would be fun to recall and relate incidents of meeting–well maybe not quite meeting, but seeing–famous people. Sometimes when I think about who I’ve met, and only very briefly, the famous names start to add up. When I was young, this would enthrall me. It still can be impressive, but, now I know that they are just people.
