    I can only wonder how Louis B. Mayer, Harry Cohn, Adolph Zukor, Jack L. Warner or Darryl F. Zanuck would have reacted when confronted with those pictures. It wouldn't have been pretty.

    Sorry Anne,it's O/T in here..But "One Day" poster was just premiered and I think it's excellent.Finally Jim Sturgess has the film which breaks him.I think he is a future Oscar winner.

    [i]"The early buzz on the film is very strong, Focus placed the film with a key summer release date last month"[/i]

    Steinfeld and Rapace get in but not Portman, snub much? Other than that, always lovely to see everyone speak. Specially Benning.
