COMMENT DU JOUR
DAY FOR NIGHT -another great movie about movies

I'm not sure if I like it more than 8 1/2 or Singing in the Rain, but when the majestic trumpet music plays, it reminds me of why I love cinema in the first place. The actors are terrific in this film as well. However, nothing will top Topsy-Turvy for me about the mystery,repetition, and heartbreak of the artistic process.❞ -Lars

Special Note to New England Readers

Maureen Stapleton in Interiors (1978)If you're anywhere near Troy or Sarasota Springs, NY this weekend there's two special events you might want to attend should you fancy a summer drive or a little movie-educational fun.

3:00 PM in Troy, NY
TFE reader Billy (who we've interviewed before in "reader spotlight") is hosting the final gallery tour of an exhibit in honor of Maureen Stapleton at the Rensselaer County Historical Museum. Billy's been a lifelong fan of the legendary stage and film actress who cherished her hometown of Troy. He even got to meet her and hold her Oscar. He's sharing his private collection, her Oscar winning moment, and speaking about her career in this guided tour. Champagne toast to end the afternoon! [$5 admission]

12:00-4:00 PM in Sarasota Springs, NY
Nearby in Sarasota Springs they're celebrating Solomon Northup day at Skidmore College. Northup, a Sarasota Springs native, is the subject of the new film 12 Years a Slave. In addition to guest speakers educating you on the man to be played by Chiwetel Ejiofor in the movie, Fox Searchlight says they'll be showing a bit of footage from the movie.  [Free to the public]

I just made your Saturday afternoon plan for you! You're welcome. If you plan on attending either, let me know

All I'm going to say is that I would kill to join that tour in honor of Maureen Stapleton.

Maureen Stapleton's performance in Interiors should have won the Oscar.
