For the very first time, the Dickens classic GREAT EXPECTATIONS will be staged in London's West End, and audiences around the world will be able to share the historic opening night experience at their local theater.

Although GREAT EXPECTATIONS has been adapted for film on two separate occasions, once by David Lean in 1946 and most recently by Mike Newell, it has never been produced for The West End or Broadway, widely believed to be too difficult to translate to stage. However, this Jo Clifford adaptation has been universally acclaimed as a triumph on its sellout tour of the UK head of its West End debut.

The event will form part of the global celebrations surrounding the 200th Anniversary of the Dickens' birth.

As April winds down and, with it, our tribute to car movies - I want to talk a little bit not just about the remaining films (and intimidating trilogy in its own right: Bullitt, Death Proof and Two-Lane Blacktop), but about the films that we weren’t able to program this time around.  If you haven’t seen Steve McQueen in Le Mans, you should do that.  Right now.  I mean it.

I met Ms. Hedren in the lounge of Elway's on the first floor of Denver's Ritz-Carlton. We talked about her new pursuits and her "second career" in the movies, though we started as most any conversation with Tippi Hedren must: with her time with Hitchcock.
