It's 2010. Do you know where your favorite stars are?

I vaguely remember in the back of my mind the series of Diet Coke commercials with dead movie stars in them. Cary Grant is the only star I really remember. John Wayne may have been another, although I can't picture John Wayne drinking anything with the word "diet" in it.

The reason I bring this up is an article floating around the interwebs about George Lucas purchasing film rights to dead celebrities. Add to that 3D.

First off, 3D is ok. My only experience with modern 3D technology was via a demo at a Sony outlet store. After noting how dumb it was - nothing looked 3D - the clerk kindly asked if the glasses were "on." Slight oversight.

Anyhow, back to the topic. What are your thoughts on dead movie stars being generated in a new movie?

I'm torn. Part of me thinks it would be pretty slick, but then they'd give Robert Montgomery blonde hair. In general, it's the novelty that appeals to me.

On the flip side, many stars were pretty adamant about what types of movies they wanted to appear in (or not). C'mon, can't you picture middle-aged Orson Welles "inserted" into a National Lampoon college humor movie?

Any dream scenario you'd like to see?

Watch Cary Grant age in 60 seconds...

Night Must Fall coming to DVD

Thanks to Reynolds for sharing that Night Must Fall is coming out on DVD via the Warner Archive. Better yet, it has been remastered, so let's hope for the best! I'm willing to bet the DVD will also include the trailer.
