Here's a nice write up on the Port Townsend Film Festival where Angel May lives. Sounds like a nice event for a small town.

Just the ticket for early retirees, of which there are a good many in Port Townsend.

<<This weekend, I'm off for an annual tradition: the Port Townsend Film Festival. I've attended the festival, celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, every year but the first -- and when I heard about that one back in 1999, with Tony Curtis presiding over a screening of "Some Like It Hot," I thought, so, why wasn't I there? So every year, in late September, I wait in the ferry line and eagerly anticipate the three-day-fest, where outdoor movies are shown to audiences sitting on hay bales on Taylor St. and old-school movie stars share stories. A few favorite memories:

-- Debra Winger, returning to Port Townsend for the first time since filming "An Officer and a Gentleman," and observing that there's a lot more traffic now.

-- Patricia Neal, warmly sharing her memories of Paul Newman after a screening of their film "Hud."

-- The way that last year's festival became an impromptu tribute to Newman, with a screening of "The Hustler" and a warmhearted panel of friends and colleagues shared stories of him.

-- Eva Marie Saint, saying how much she'd enjoyed watching "All Fall Down" at the festival "with all my new friends."

-- The one year when it rained (2007), with a wildly blustery storm that closed down the outdoor beer garden -- but only briefly. It reopened and was a cheering sight in the gray afternoon, with candles flickering in the wind.

-- Climbing the stairs above the Taylor Street fountain and looking down to see the incomparable beauty of the young Audrey Hepburn in "Roman Holiday" on the big outdoor screen, under a perfectly starry sky.


I'm always glad to remember Audrey Hepburn in "Roman Holiday"!
