Quick Note

November 22nd, 2007 (06:07 pm)

Well, I'm in the Land of Oz, as mentioned earlier; despite a twisted ankle the day I got here and a bad sinus infection in the past few days, it's going pretty well. Will have quite a bit to post when I get home.

Just wanted to mention that last night I saw the German film Fanfares of Love, Billy Wilder's inspiration for Some Like It Hot. (Also now have a mini subscription to the Melbourne Cinemathèque because of it.) Some Like It Hot is blessed with a genius director and an inspired cast and deserves every kudo it's ever gotten. But it's clear that the source material is golden and works just as well in Deutshe, even with some detail changes. It'd be great to find the French Fanfares L'amour, which seems to be the first version of the movie.

Happy Thanksgiving to all those set to partake - almost forgot, it's a regular day here (though cool and cloudy).
