At the end of the previous entry — “Baseball Barf, Excreted Espresso, Carole Lombard” — I asked readers to find the hidden film titles that peppered the deathless prose and send them in, winner and list to be posted. We finally have a victor, though competition wasn’t exactly stiff: cinephile Bill Stern of Los Angeles, who is also director of the Museum of California Design.
Upon compiling the list, however, this writer realized that the contest is inherently unfair, because almost any noun, and even some gerunds and a few quirky verbs, have been a film.
Still, here’s my list so far (movies referred to as movies are not included):
Boilerplate (in production)
The Philadelphia Story
Under the Volcano
More? You bet.
