An upcoming movie about the life and career of participatory journalist, author, actor, gentleman, George Plimpton. This tumblr page will be used for the fans to post videos, pictures, and notes about George Plimpton. Enjoy!
In his frequently excellent book Fireworks, the late George Plimpton had occasion to mention a Hitchcock scene:
Do you remember Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief, their union symbolized by a great crash of fireworks outside their balcony overlooking the harbor of Monte Carlo? The only thing wrong with that scenario, it has always seemed to me, is that any normal couple would be out on the balcony enjoying the fireworks, and not inside tumbling around on a bed.
Really, George? Grace Kelly is in the hotel room ready to go, and you’re going to put her on hold to take a peek at some sparklers?
