Lancelot Link Thursday

Lancelot Link Thursday! For those of you who wonder if 100 monkeys with typewriters could write a better script than THE LAST AIRBENDER, here are some articles about screenwriting and the biz that may be of interest to you. Brought to you by that suave and sophisticated secret agent...

Here are four cool links plus this week's car chase...

1) Republic Pictures turns 75 years old this year... and their old studio is just down the street from me (now CBS Radford - where the BIG BROTHER house is), and they are having a little party and you are invited!

2) Forbes list of Best Actors The The Buck. Wonder if Jennifer Aniston made this list?

3) Bruce Campbell, greatest actor in the world talks about EVIL DEAD and Ash.

4) The throne of a great writer is for sale!

5) So, my friend Steve Weller quipped that while watching MACHETE, whenever Seagal shows up onscreen we should yell, "Show us your tits!"

6) Car chase from COBRA:

The REBECCA entry for Fridays With Hitchcock is not ready, yet... sorry!

TODAY'S SCRIPT TIP: Where's The Beef? - is too much importance put on the 3 Act Structure?
Dinner: Chicken Caesar Salad.
Pages: Prep work for today's meeting.
Bicycle: No - but riding on Thursday (today). Only soreness from Tuesday's bike ride? My legs! Haven't rode for 3 weeks, and those muscles have already gone soft!

Z could be for zzzzz (the noise my daughter's friend made while not watching THE LAST AIRBENDER)
...and Zardoz and Zelig and Zanzibar (THE ROAD TO...)
There's zither music in THE THIRD MAN.
Zither is a fun word to say...zither, zither, zeppelin, Van Heflin and his pelican.

For those with cable, TCM shows one Hitchcock flick this month, DIAL M FOR MURDER on the 19th.
