movie time

Watched two good movies:
Desire (1936) and The Dark Corner (1946).
I especially liked the part with William Bendix
on the payphone while the girl in the hallway
annoys him with a slide whistle.


Yesterday we went to Eclipse,
the local bookstore that features in
The Orphanage of Abandoned Teenagers,
and got our son one of my favorite books
of all time: A Confederacy of Dunces.
Long Live Ignatius!

strangers at the door

One of the books I read this summer was
Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove's Strangers
At My Door, which surprisingly starts
the same way as my book, The Orphanage
of Abandoned Teenagers.

Le Petit Prince

I'm halfway through a notebook writing a
new novel. It's set at a lake and features
The Little Prince.

movie time

Just watched Woman on the Run (1950).
It's interesting to see the film noir movies
made on East vs. West coasts. This one
takes place in San Francisco. Wonder if
old Kerouac was in one of those alleys
or docks.

movie time

I watched a Philip Marlowe movie
The Brasher Doubloon (1947).
It's a tough call casting Marlowe,
I don't think Montgomery really works
for a detective that's constantly getting
blackjacked and dumped out doors.
It would be interesting to know who is
Raymond Chandler's favorite Marlowe.
