Since We're Speaking of Lauren

Harry Potter? No way. Another Spiderman? Nyet. Scientology's take on Hairspray? Wait until DVD.

However, come August 10, I may just have to go to the UK to seeing "The Walker". It was already screened earlier this month in Cambridge, but we've got to wait until December 7 to see it. Is there not justice! Well, apparently not in this country. Rumors of it even being made or released have been bubbling for a few years. Plenty have predicted it to be a roaring dud. But make up your own mind with these seven minutes from the opening. We'll see how long they stay up. Even if it's downhill from there, I'm already hooked.

Remind me to tell you sometime about my mother's eight second encounter with Lauren Bacall in 1993. It was her life-defining moment.

Lauren Bacall is crazy. :-)

A couple years ago Gary and I were in the New Amsterdam Theater seeing "The Lion King". During intermission we went to the gift shop, because you know all Disney musicals have to have a gift shop, anyhow we heard this distinctly recognizable voice. And sure enough there she was, Lauren Bacall buying her grandson a Mufasa cookie. So of course we stalked her as they returned to their seats in the center orchestra but lost her in the crowd after the show.
