Two Days to Go!

Until the release of The Sea Gull! Actually, we are well into Friday now, in most of the world, so a bit less.

In other news, here is an article from the Guardian Unlimited about Theda Bara, and how modern eyes see yesterday's stars. more>

And from the just plain strange file, a novel written by Tim Powers. Released in November 2007, it apparently features a character seeing Chaplin's lost film production "A Woman of the Sea." The book is called Three Days to Never.

Amazon review says:
"his 12-year-old daughter, Daphne, steals a videotape from the old woman's Pasadena house that turns out to be a Chaplin film long believed lost. Before Daphne can finish watching the film, its powerful symbolism awakens a latent pyrokinetic ability in her that burns the tape."
