Party On, Munchkin
Had a nice afternoon in Culver City today. Saw the World Premiere of Chay Yew's new play "A Distant Shore" at the Kirk Douglas Theater. It's a good play about colonialism and the tension between East and West.
Lunch beforehand was at the S & W Country Diner (pictured above) next door to the theater.
My friend from New York City, Cliff Smith, joined GeezBob and me for lunch. I tried to impress on him the historical importance of Culver City to the movie industry. He didn't seem too impressed when I pointed out the hotel where the Munchkins stayed (and famously partied) while filming "The Wizard of Oz" at MGM Studios.
