George Whitman, the owner of Shakespeare and Co. bookstore in Paris, died last week. I've long been a faraway fan of his bookstore and the ideals it encapsulates. Though I have yet to visit his store (now run by his daughter Sylvia Whitman), I have written about it here.
His obituary in the New York Times is beautiful and there's an interview with Sylvia, here, on CBC's As It Happens (part two).
Jane Flanagan: It is one of my favorites! Shadow of a Doubt is worth a revisit, I think.
Julie: Just more ideas for when you're looking for something to watch :). There are many films I haven't seen, either. The Matrix is one example... Yay for vintage adult film signs.
Jessica Kleoppel: It sure is. Thank you for your recommendations, I haven't watched either! They're on my list.
