Sunday, July 1, 2007 – Framing Hollywood
It's all about context, a tour bus at Hollywood and Highland, just across from the Kodak Theater where they hold the Oscars, and a billboard for that new movie – that one where God (Morgan Freeman) tells Evan (Steve Carell, Denison University, '84) to build an ark and all that. It's a comedy about God destroying the world out of sheer disgust, but having Evan save enough for a new start. Values are variable out here. Next year, on June 20, we get Steve Carell as Maxwell Smart in Get Smart, a new feature film based on the Mel Brooks and Buck Henry television series that ran on NBC from September 1965 to April 1969, and the CBS for its final season, 1969-70. None of it makes much sense.
