I just got Howard's End on DVD so the next time I run into James Ivory I won't have to continue the charade that I've seen it. You've never seen a cleaner, more wonderful head of white hair on a man. Notice I ended that sentence carefully. That reminds me I learned from my genius friend Doug that older ladies have blue hair because their color vision starts to go yellow and they compensate by adding blue until it looks white to them. It sounds absurd, but then doesn't just about any true thing? My DVD collection has doubled this week. Scotty G. gave me a copy of a film called American Movie. Have haven't pulled the pin on it yet, but you might think the studio would have worked on the name a bit. That plays about as well on a theater marqee as Now Hiring. Time for lunch in Hollywood, Diary.
