Shorts #6

Shorts or 5 Things to Know This Week is a weekly posting that features short blurbs on interesting topics related to film and theatre studies, research and resources, theatre goings on in New York City, lots of library-related news and other stuff.

1.  In honor of the runners in yesterday's Boston Marathon -- peace be with you. In the spirit of all marathon runners -- a few recommended films: Chariots of Fire (1981), Gallipoli (1981), Run Lola Run (1998), and Without Limits (1998).

2.  To Boston with love -- Good Will Hunting (1997).

3.  I recently acquired an interesting work published by McFarland -- better than their typical thematic filmographies -- Tudors on Film and Television (2013).

4.  Thank you Yoko Ono for "Imagine No Fracking" -- a poster art installation in the windows of ABC Carpet and Home.

5.  NEW YORK THEATRE GOINGS ON -- Always a treat to see Austin Pendleton -- he is currently starring in Robert Brustein's The Last Will at the Abingdon Theatre Company. The play is the last installment in Brustein's trilogy examining the life of Shakespeare. Also on stage -- Breakfast at Tiffany's.  Do yourself a favor -- stay home and read the novella.
