  1. “Unifying field theory” made me laugh. I’ve flown out of Van Nuys airport; it still has that quaint mid-20th-century flavor. So does Long Beach, which is remarkable considering it’s a working commercial airfield. (Van Nuys is general aviation.)

    I was impressed with the way the director set up the shots. Casablanca also has some of the best character actors of any movie. There isn’t a bad performance in the film. What a coincidence that Van Nuys looks like North Africa.

  5. I think great directors can make the scenery a “moving actor” of the movie. They focus are eyes and make us ask why. Sometimes they show the details and sometimes they hide them. I was watching the first part of “Notorious” and all you could see was the back of an actors head at a party. “Who is this man? Do I know that head? Why does the director not show his face? Is he important or just an extra?” Hitchcock was the master.

    Or that North Africa looks like Van Nuys? (typed with a wink and a smile)
