Following up on my two recent postings on film nostalgia, I noticed that Casablanca, the 1943 Academy Award winner for Best Picture, is having a special showing at Ward Theater in Honolulu tonight at 7PM. There is also an attractive price of $7.
- Casablanca (1942), for I had a DVD which I bought at Blockbuster for a couple of bucks when it went bankrupt. Rotten Tomatoes gave a 97% reviewers and 95% audience ratings.
- Play it Again Sam (1972), free on Amazon.com if you are a Prime member. RT: 97% and 89%.
The Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics
Here is the joke of the day: the temperature dropped to 28 F in Atlanta today with snow on the ground and more to come. Sochi reached a high of 64 F, and will sink all the way down to 50 F tonight, but will again rise to 64 F tomorrow, with a projected low of 52 F. Here is a photo from Sochi today:
Can you believe this was already Day 8, if you count the day before the Opening Ceremonies, which you should.
