LINKS/ PURCHASED/ GIFTEDWhen the evenings get balmy, my friends Anita and Russ do movie nights at their home. These are not simple DVDs in the HD-TV affairs. These are old-style 16mm films projected on a screen installed over their pool, with the entire back yard decorated in theme with the film. And we dress the part!
Last night's movie was Mildred Pierce -- the original version starring Joan Crawford.
