    They shall not grow old.

    They used forensic lip readers to see what the silent films were saying. Those forensic lip readers were capable of picking up accent as well. Was really something when these people from the first world war went into full color and then you could hear them speak. they also found a way to correct the film speeds. Many of the old films were shot at random film speeds.

    Very cool - where is that showing that you saw it? I am assuming a streaming site? I'd like to watch that

    Thanks for posting

    Tuesday the XYL and I went to see the latest offering from Marvel Studios: "Shang Chi - Legend of the 10 Rings". Although I don't remember that particular character from my comic book youth, I do enjoy all (ok, most) of the Marvel movies and it's nice that my wife does as well.

    Went to the 4:00 show. There was one car in the parking lot; the theater looked dark. However, doors were open, and there was ONE employee behind the counter. By the time the previews started, one other person came in and sat down. Only three people in a theater that could easily hold 200 or so; the complex has 11 other theaters in it as well. Even though we're both fully vaccinated, we had brought masks just in case it was crowded. No need...extreme social distancing was in full effect.

    Hopefully the theater can survive at this level of minimal business until the COVID situation is over. We've lost enough businesses to this pandemic, sure would hate to see the theater close down.

    "The Fighting Lady" by Edward Steichen, 1944.

    The technicolor documentary of the second USS Yorktown's shakedown cruise to the Marianas "Turkey Shoot". It confirms Steichen's reputation as one of the top photographers of his era.

    Heck, even the outtakes are worth watching.
