Heya readers! I haven't seen many movies lately, yesterday I started the course to get a postgraduate certificate on Digital Journalism I told you about, so I won't be posting on Tuesdays and Thursdays (probably). But don't worry, I'm planning some new services for Via Margutta, a surprise and a new book review. Stay tuned!
Today I wanted to recommend you a very interesting site, which is getting more and more known and now it's even nominated for a Webby Award. Letters of Note publishes "correspondence deserving a wider audience", that means that you can find letters, postcards, telegrams, smoke signals, etc etc sent by famous/historical people. And of course, I wouldn't be talking about this site here, if it didn't share notes from classic actors and directors. Here are my favorites:
James Dean : Being an actor is the loneliest thing in the world
Audrey Hepburn to Stanley Kubrick: I expect to make the best movie ever made
Cary Grant: I cannot swagger out in these shirts
Marlon Brando to Marilyn Monroe: The best reappraisals are born in the worst crisis
To Billy Wilder: Respectfully yours, Clint Eastwood
Hope you enjoyed! Oh, don't forget that you can help Letters of Note to win a Webby Award.
