Here’s something great (and positive!) sent by correspondent David J. Schow: the link takes you to a short YouTube piece entitled Onze helden zijn terug!  I haven’t Google translated that yet, but the unofficial title is A Dutch flash mob recreates Rembrandt’s “The Night Watch” live at a mall in the Netherlands.

It seems more than a bit staged to me, but it’s still fun. And it’s all of a minute and a half in duration. Enjoy!



This YouTube link is from correspondent Gary Teetzel, listed as by ‘AnimaMundiMagazine’ and called Curt Siodmak – The Lost Video. It seemed appropriate, what with today’s Curt Siodmak review.

I’m not sure of what Curt’s getting at, but he starts out with a bitter remark, complaining that movie writers aren’t given the credit they deserve. I’m curious as to the location of the shoot — the bric-a-brac is impressive. It’s clearly some kind of museum exhibit, what with the marble walls, etc.. Video of Curt Siodmak talking isn’t something you see every day, that’s for sure.
