I am SO disappointed!
I had an entire blog written and then needed to test something - so I copied everything - deleted THIS blog and pasted the text to a new page - except I hit ctrl "C" instead of ctrl "V" and lost everything!!! DAMN IT!!
SO this is a VERY shot blog today.
This along with a few more comes from Kingsley - OUTSTANDING. I'll post the others in teh next few days.
There is some serious talent reading this blog.
This comes from Vicks who spotted it on the Universal website:
In the action-thriller Public Enemies, acclaimed filmmaker Michael Mann directs Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Academy Award® winner Marion Cotillard in the incredible and true story of legendary Depression-era bank robber John Dillinger (Depp)—the charismatic bank robber whose lightning raids made him the number one target of J. Edgar Hoover’s fledgling FBI and its top agent, Melvin Purvis (Bale), and a folk hero to much of the downtrodden public.
No one could stop Dillinger. No jail could hold him. His charm and audacious jailbreaks endeared him to almost everyone—from his girlfriend Billie Frechette (Cotillard) to an American public who had no sympathy for the banks that had plunged the country into the Depression.
But while the adventures of Dillinger's gang—later including the sociopathic Baby Face Nelson (Stephen Graham)—thrilled many, Hoover (Billy Crudup) hit on the idea of exploiting the outlaw's capture as a way to elevate his Bureau of Investigation into the national police force that became the FBI. He made Dillinger America's first Public Enemy Number One.
Hoover sent in Purvis, the dashing "Clark Gable of the FBI". However, Dillinger and his gang outwitted and outgunned Purvis' men in wild chases and shootouts. Only after importing a crew of Western ex-lawmen (newly baptized as agents) who were real gunfighters and orchestrating epic betrayals—from the infamous "Lady in Red" to the Chicago crime boss Frank Nitti—were Purvis and the FBI able to close in on Dillinger.
We're getting close to the trailer - can you feel it in the air?? For the first time in months we're getting actual "stuff" out of California!!!!
DONE with todays stupid blog :-( boo hoo
BTW - It's the 3rd Friday so I'll be at The Kurth for a while tonight!
