    Halloween Postscript

    Two pieces of feedback on yesterday’s piece about spook shows are too good not to share. First, Bob Burns was kind enough to send along a newspaper ad for a 1948 show at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles that promised lucky kids a chance to see both Dracula (Bela Lugosi) and Frankenst...

    Shea Whigham Joins David O. Russell's 'Silver Linings Playbook'

    Shea Whigham isn't exactly a household name you'd instantly recognize, but a quick look at his resume will certainly ring some bells for anyone with a keen eye for the small or silver screen.
