Pursuing a kind of degrees of separation thing here, I note (following the Judy Garland thread from the previous post) that the director Norman Jewison was hired to direct Garland's tv special, at around the time of her Carnegie Hall concert. That led to his first film directing job in Hollywood, a Tony Curtis film. Lots of great films followed, my fav being In the Heat of the Night, with that terrific Ray Charles song over the opening credits.

Very cool blog, sir. The style of commentary and thought is provocative, and reminds me of the level of reflection I would like to participate in more frequently myself. Keep 'er going--and include a better link from your site!
