Green Book

Today I saw a phenomenal movie, Green Book. It was inspired by a true story about a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood, Tony Lip, who was hired to drive a black pianist, Don Shirley, on a concert tour from New York to the Deep South in 1962. The two main actors, Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen, were incredible, and the sets and automobiles were captivating, as you can see in the following trailer.

I discovered this article on Biography.com which describes some details of the movie's creation, and the differences between the real-life characters and the movie characters.

Being genius is not enough, it takes courage to change people’s hearts.
— Don Shirley

Who can turn the world on with her smile?

I was saddened to hear of the death of icon and actress Mary Tyler Moore. I loved her in The Dick Van Dyke ShowThe Mary Tyler Moore Showand in the film Ordinary People, for which she received an Oscar nomination. There are many great memories of her, but for me, one of the funniest was the episode from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, "Chuckles Bites the Dust."

RIP, Mary Tyler Moore.
