Front of Saban Theatre, one of the LAJFF venues
Last night was the gala opening night of the Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival and it was super. Tons of folks showed up, lots of celebrities, and a wonderful film screened called Ten from Your Show of Shows. Wonderful comedy starring the hysterical Sid Caeser, Carl Reiner, Imogene Coco and others. After the screening there was a fascinating discussion with Carl Reiner and Phil Rosenthal and Mr. Reiner discussed his work. Mr. Reiner who is 92, continues to write and create, and has just released a new book. He said his early influences were the Marx Brothers, Charlie Chaplin, and others.
The film festival is on-going until May 8th, for more information or tickets visit lafilmfest.org.
