Whether they are behind the camera or in front of it, this is the place to discuss all filmmakers regardless of their role in the filmmaking process.

The holiday crush made me miss this.

Gimbel was attached to a bunch of songs I loved -- Killing Me Softly the most famous (I can remember the first time I heard the song, one night in my college dorm), I Got a Name a personal favorite (I'd have voted for it over The Way We Were, had it been nominated as deserved), The Girl from Ipanema and I Will Wait for You, and one I didn't realize till reading in the Times today: Little Peggy March's I Will Follow Him. I feel confident that Damien would join me in saluting that as an unforgettable part of our younger days.
