I just saw Angela Lansbury play Madame Arcati in Blithe Spirit at the Ahamanson, in downtown Los Angeles. She was terrific, the play was marvelous. It reminded my how much I love Noel Coward.

Turner Classic Movies is showing a new CARRY ON movie every Saturday. As there are over thirty of them, the festival could go on for many, many months. I know these films are an acquired taste, but I love them dearly. Full of low-brow, music-hall-style humor, they’re sort of the British equivalent to Abbott and Costello movies. The stories are loosely structured to allow a variety of English comedians a chance to do their bits.
