It needs more participation that actually relates to Ray Bradbury.
Everything in the universe relates to Ray Bradbury. The trick is in making the connections!
...and there have been a few Bradbury-related movies since 2009!
Stan and Ollie is Bradbury-related, as well. We know who was front row, center for this Irish show!
And John C Reilly - the last time I was with him was at the unveiling party for the Bradbury statue. I was on my way to a Bradbury play (with Ray) later that night and invited John C and his wife, but they had supper plans.
It really is a small world!
As mentioned here, http://raybradburyboard.com/ev...1083901/m/1227096776 I finally got to see The Music Box.
Does anyone who has seen Stan and Ollie want to discuss it?
I see it on Tuesday.
I just the other day found out they did a new Fahrenheit movie last year. I'm in the middle of it now. Like Truffaut's movie (and I love Truffaut, at least his own films) this movie gets almost everything wrong, and yet has some moments that are so spot-on and great interpretations, that I can't hate it. But neither can I love it.
Sad how they manage to miss the mark, and yet. They try.
The scene with the old lady setting her books on fire was the only scene they got right in this horrible adaptation.
I liked the school rally, and the firemen chanting excitedly en route to the burnings. When Montag first reveals the contents of his vent, being random odds and ends, a postcard perhaps. Not really knowing what he's looking for. Referring to the books as "graffiti." Little moments and details like that were a nice touch. But overall, storywise, what were they thinking!?
Whether you enjoyed or even saw The Rifleman, Johnny Crawford and his brother Robert Crawford Jr. are some of the kindest people anyone could ever meet! It was one of the thrills of my life to be able to tell Johnny Crawford that The Rifleman was the first show I ever saw the day we finally got a TV set which worked, and I watched it for years. I hung out for hours with them at the final (so far) Festival of the West and they were friendly and extremely concerned, to the point of driving me to where I could catch a ride back to my hotel and saying they wished they could do more! Johnny's wife is also a wonderful sweet person. I cherish a photograph signed by them both. My love and concern flows out to them and I would urge everyone to donate anything they can.
Although Rocketman has little to do with Ray except the title song being inspired by his story of the same title, and being partly set in L. A., it is fantastic and you are all commanded to see it!
Has anyone seen The Window from 1949? It aired on TCM today and the plot is similar enough to "The Screaming Woman" that I wonder if it was an influence. It is also similar to the Hitchcock film Rear Window.
