Well, everyone’s a “citizen journalist” now, aren’t we? Historiann has some more movie news to report! While she and her entire family were visiting this city (pictured at right)
a member of her family, who was in this neighborhood (pictured at left) happened to see one morning that a movie was being filmed there. Last Sunday morning, strolling back up the hill, this family member walked by John Waters. (I know! How cool is that?) He was carrying a newspaper and talking on the phone about movie business. Some members of the Historiann family used to live in Baltimore, and claim to have seen Waters there twice, although I myself was never so fortunate. And now–damn and blast–he has eluded me again! (The only movie Historiann ever saw being filmed was in Baltimore, although, tragically, not a Waters movie. Nothing to brag about–it was Major League II!)
Keep your eyes peeled for Waters’ next movie, and if it was filmed in this city, you can say you heard it here first at Historiann.com.
LATE BREAKING UPDATE ON TENURE: E.H., our intrepid correspondent on the movie set at Bryn Mawr College, has been “super busy with midterms” lately, but sent in a recent update on the Luke Wilson movie. She writes, “[T]he ‘whoa-they’re-filming-a-movie-here’ craze seems to be on the way out. I’ve overheard a few people saying they are already tired of having the big trucks and the film’s crew being around all the time.” Those Bryn Mawr women–so worldly-wise, so seen-it-all, been-there-too. (Then again, Luke Wilson is no George Clooney, if you know what I mean. He’d be cute for a college professor or a congressman, but he’s not Hollywood’s top dreamboat, not even at a women’s college.)
