“Dennis Hopper in Night Tide (1961), set in Venice, California. Suspense blended with discreet poetry, it is about a sailor who meets a mermaid.”

I found some 1930s mug shots at an estate sale over the weekend. This guy was picked up for larceny and forgery of a government check. He was thirty-one years of age at the time of his arrest on September 4, 1937.

“The Maysles brothers, David (holding recording equipment) and Albert (with camera) filming a discussion between Elia Kazan and Arthur Miller for a television programme ‘Theater of Tomorrow.'” September 1963 issue of Films and Filming.

Included in the same issue, and on the same page, is this mention of the beginnings of Liza Minnelli’s film career.
