While on the subject of ways to remember loved ones (see last post), here's another way. Last night I went with some friends to see the Maltese Falcon, projected on the side of a building, sitting outside on the grass in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. I'd forgotten how great this film looks, and how many wonderful lines the film has. What a script! It was an excellent "performance" of the film, as the audience (hundreds of people sitting around on the grass) was very appreicative indeed, with lots of bursts of laughter here and there. It was almost like watching it for the first time.


You also get to wander around all the headstones and mauseleums -of varying degrees of elaborateness- of various of the great and good of Hollywood. Have a look at the website above for more information! (Some of it quite bizarre.) The viewings are put on by Cinespia, and there are several more to come this season. Next week: The Birds! -cvj
