Notes from the Manager
Most of you won’t remember all the way back to #16, but that’s when Jason mentioned The Magnificent Ambersons to Kurt and Becky. It is indeed actually playing at the Music Box Theatre in Chicago right now, and since it relates to the current storyline about the classic film series, sort of, I thought Jason should see it… and bring Becky with him. (This bonus strip from Book 1 is relevant to this strip, too, I think.)
The Magnificent Ambersons was unavailable on DVD in the US until 2011, incidentally, though you could find bootlegs or imports if you tried really hard. I caught a screening of it at the Music Box several years ago, myself.
Keep your eyes peeled over at the Deleted Scenes blog for another comic by me — not #799; that’ll be Friday’s regular update!

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.
James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
