Hollywood and Vine - Sunday Five


Around the time my mother finished high school, her family went on a cross country road trip.   On her wish list was to have lunch at the counter in the pharmacy at the corner of Hollywood and Vine, there was a legend of film stara being discovered at the lunch counter in that drug store at the corner of Hollywood and Vine.  60 years later, when I was in West Hollywood for work, I walked down to take a picture at that corner.  The pharmacy is long gone, but the legend lives on. 

1: I retraced my mother's steps in Hollywood, based on the story she had told of her adventure.  Have you retraced any of the adventures that are legendary in your family?  
     
2: Have you ever been "on-set" when a movie was being filmed?   

3: When Hollywood makes a movie about your life, will it be a musical, drama, or comedy?   

4: Would you appear in a Hollywood Movie? 
   
5: Do you enjoy foreign language films (with subtitles?)  
    


My Answers: 
1: I retraced my mother's steps on this, based on the story she had told of her adventure.  Have you retraced any of the adventures that are legendary in your family?  
     - Obviously I have, I have also gone to Times Square, something my parents did a few times, and I never did with them.  

2: Have you ever been "on-set" when a movie was being filmed?  
 - Yes, the scene in front of the "Science Center" in Ernest Saves Christmas, was filmed at the Orlando Historical Society - I was there for 2-3 hours that afternoon.     

3: When Hollywood makes a movie about your life, will it be a musical, drama, or comedy?  - Musical 

4: Would you appear in a Hollywood Movie? 
    - Why not?  It would need to be in a capacity that didn't rely on my non-existing acting skills.  

5: Do you enjoy foreign language films (with subtitles?)  
    - Yes, when I lived in Orlando I saw a lot of French films at the Enzian in Maitland.

    5: I do, though once I asked a friend if she liked The Red Violin and she said No because of the subtitles, I asked her what that meant and she said, "I don't read."
