Join USC Shoah Foundation in Fighting Intolerance and Hatred At Its Annual Fundraising Gala in Los Angeles and meet two of the bearded trio.

USC Shoah Foundation is offering one member of the public and a guest the chance to attend its Ambassadors for Humanity Gala in December. The gala is a crucial part of the Institute’s efforts helping to forge partnerships that sustain the organization into the future. The gala raises much-needed general funds to support its educational programs including expansion of the Institute’s award-winning IWitness website, professional development for educators globally, the Center for Advanced Genocide Research, academic conferences, expanding access to the Visual History Archive and testimony preservation, to name a few.

Winner of the Ambassadors for Humanity Gala Sweepstakes and a plus-one will receive round-trip transportation to Los Angeles to attend the Institute’s annual fundraising gala on Dec. 8, when Mellody Hobson and George Lucas will be honored with the Institute’s 2016 Ambassador for Humanity Award for their steadfast commitment to dynamic and innovative humanitarian efforts, and their longtime support of USC Shoah Foundation.

The winner and their guest will also get the opportunity to have their photo taken with Mellody Hobson, George Lucas and Institute founder Steven Spielberg.

“Through its educational programs, community outreach and exploration of new technologies, USC Shoah Foundation reaches a wide audience” said Executive Director Stephen Smith. “By inviting the public to participate in the sweepstakes, we hope to reach even more people about the important work we do.”

The sweepstakes will award one grand-prize winner with a trip package for two people – the winner and a guest – to attend the Ambassadors for Humanity Gala in Los Angeles on Dec. 8. The prize also includes:

• A round-trip, coach-class air-transportation for the winner and guest to Los Angeles from a major airport nearest the winner’s residence within the 48 contiguous United States
• One-night hotel accommodations

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
