What every well-dressed man needs.

s-l1600-2OK, maybe it’s not as cool as the one Spielberg’s wearing below, but it’ll do. You can get these on eBay. And no, it’s not me selling them.

Have you seen this yet? It’s a French set of Sorcerer on Blu-ray and DVD with a production history and reproduction of the original script included. How cool is that?

Screening: San Francisco’s Castro Theatre.

Annex - Bogart, Humphrey (Treasure of the Sierra Madre, The)_NRFPT_11

San Francisco’s Castro Theatre has put together a great scumbags-in-a-hellhole double feature: John Huston’s The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre (1948) and Sorcerer.

Picture 15

I hope William Friedkin is aware of this pairing, since he’s a big fan of the Huston/Bogart picture. If you’re in the area September 27 (that’s a Sunday), this is the place to be.

By the way, The Castro was one of the first places to screen the restored Sorcerer back in April 2014.
