Dear Tumblr friends/classic film fans,
TCM is bringing Gone With the Wind back into theaters on September 28 (Sunday) and October 1 (Wednesday) to celebrate the film’s 75th anniversary. If you’re in the greater Sacramento/Roseville, CA area on Sunday the 28th, stop by Barnes & Noble across the street from the Roseville Galleria and get a signed copy of Vivien Leigh: An Intimate Portrait and then head over to the Century cinema on Eureka Blvd to see the best movie of all time ever on the big screen (screenings at 2pm and 7pm)!
What: Book signing featuring me, Vivien Leigh, and hopefully you!
When: I’ll be there from 3pm with my Sharpie
Where: Barnes & Noble, Roseville Galleria, Roseville, CA
I’m really excited to do a signing near my hometown! Regardless of whether you’re able to attend, will you please help me spread the word? It would be great if we had a good turnout :)

Superman Sunday Newspaper Strip - March 4, 1945 to March 25, 1945
Through neutral diplomatic channels, Superman is delivered an unusual invitation - from Herr Hitler himself! The Nazi high command have hit upon the singular idea of subverting Superman’s mission against crime and injustice by inviting him to join the German Supermen - Which is, of course, Hitler, Goebbels, Himmler and Goering in ersatz Superman uniforms. (Naturally, the invitation goes over about as well as you would expect)
Happy Birthday Jack Cardiff: 18th September 1914 - 22nd April 2009
For his inventions, imagination and sheer audacity, there has never been another colour cameraman like Jack Cardiff…Jack’s lighting and composition in Black Narcissus and The Red Shoes would have infuriated Delacroix, because he couldn’t have done any better himself, in imagination or in chiaroscuro. - Michael Powell.
You begin to see flourishes, with a camera cut, or a piece of composition, or the length of a shot; you begin to realise that he’s using the lens like brushstrokes. It’s a painting he’s made…Paintings that moved, extraordinarily, moved not only visually, but emotionally and psychologically also. - Martin Scorcese.
I wouldn’t start to dare to compare myself to what Turner did, but I’ve learnt a lot of lessons from Turner. You should be bold, and you should go out and do something that’s different and bold, and that’s the whole essence of photography in a sense. - Jack Cardiff
The best way of seeing how fabulous Jack’s work is - other than watching it of course - is to watch Cameraman (2010) Craig McCall’s documentary about him, filmed when Jack was still around and working, in the mid 2000s. Not only is is informative and entertaining, you also get to meet Jack, who is bloody lovely.
