Great Movie Idea: The Story of Ella Fitzgerald

Great Movie Idea: The Story of Ella Fitzgerald

... it seems that new ideas are at an all time low, except for those wonderful film makers who are lucky enough to get their indy films produced…and we all know 99% of the time, they (unfortunately) go no where. If only I had the ear of a big-shot movie producer (with some brains) for just a few minutes…

Starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, this cream of the crop Raymond Chandler Noir thriller encompasses everything Film Noir is about: The seedier side of life, making no distinction for class, wealth or education. Crime, and the inevitable punishment. Gambling. Loose women. Murder. read more...Noir Movie Monday: The Big Sleep, 1946

They were ready to accept a reservation for the last weekend in June, and when I asked if the rumors that they were closing were true, the answer was “I think we’ll be open for a long time to come.”
