Description

Preston Sturges set a new standard for creativity in Hollywood. He not only wrote such films as “The Lady Eve,” “Sullivan‛s Travels,” “The Palm Beach Story,” and “The Miracle of Morgan‛s Creek,” he directed them as well at the rate of two a year. He opened the door for an entire generation of writers-turned-directors and made some of the most popular comedies of the sound era. At his peak, he earned the third-highest salary in the country. He was an inventor, songwriter, actor, playwright, restauranteur, industrialist, and winner of the Academy Award. He even owned a production company with his temperamental equal, Howard Hughes. Drawn from interviews, letters, and other primary source materials, this is the story of a legendary American filmmaker, who made and lost two fortunes, and whose genius shown brightly, as he put it, “between flops.”

Holiday Closing Alert!  

LaborDay2Kwide721tall

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever, we're going to be closed for all three days of the Labor Day weekend.  

That means we're going to be closed, Saturday-Sunday-Monday, August 31st through September 2nd, 2019. 

No telephone calls, no emails will be answered.  We almost never do this, but it's been an incredibly hectic year and the short of it is, the Crew (and I) need a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, September 3rd, ready to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.
