The Back Page – March 16 2012

Welcome to our new-look Friday column!

Jerry Lewis and Alfred Hitchcock
It's Jerry Lewis's 86th birthday. Here he is with Alfred Hitchcock on the set of To Catch a Thief.

Big release this week? Well, probably We Bought a Zoo, but fuck me, look at the trailer:

Man quits job in dramatic fashion! Tousle-haired moppet jumps up and down and goes ‘Yay!’ Hoppípolla! ScarJo in a Christmas jumper! Matt Damon had better be playing an amnesiac assassin who accidentally buys a zoo, that’s all I’m saying.

In lieu of a MostlyFilm post, why not read this excellent treatise on the correct order in which to watch the Star Wars Films? No reason, I just happen to agree.

Or you could read a MostlyFilm post. There were four this week:

Yesterday’s Men, on Hugo and the Artist.

If My Calculations Are Correct pt IV, the culmination of an epic sci fi viewing project.

Mostly Pop, the month in popular music.

Once Upon a Time in Anatolia, our review of the film.

Join us next week for screenwriting, man-pies, art and British Noir.
