watching all kinds of films in San Francisco theatres
ME TOO!It feels like a hang-over - uncomfortable yet well worth the experience.
Third'd. And I got to put something together for all this madness? Ha! Still: great fun. Really enjoyed sharing the weekend with you two, and everybody. More soon, I promise!
Brian, thanks for all your posts. Next best thing to being there.
I wish I was there to have seen a contemporary benshi. My companion, Lumena, still talks about how much she loved seeing Show People two years ago.
Thanks, all. Rob and Peter, you were definitely missed this weekend. To be clear, there was no benshi performance this year, though I can understand why my convoluted prose in my other post gave off that impression. There was, however, another Marion Davies comedy, the Patsy, which was a terrific way to close out the weekend.
I love Brandon Hurst (Barkilphedro the Jester) in this movie!!!! He was a masterpiece genius!
Yes, he's great in the role! Thanks for stopping by to remind me of this film.
