Dummy Up

More snaps from Angels. Robert Ryan’s picture was way high up on the wall, no doubt because Ryan, a very tall man, hung it there himself.

It felt curiously secret and criminous to be taking these snaps, but nobody seemed to mind. Why would they? Maybe my feeling of guilt and subterfuge is wrapped up in my sense of being a movie obsessive in a way that few serious workers in the actual industry are. I mean, they all ARE obsessives, but they obsess about their jobs and the films they’re on. They love movies generally but most of them have other interests, and are more focussed on current developments in the industry than on history. They’re serious about cinema as a livelihood, whereas I never somehow believed it was a possible career.

The back of Angels’ lobby seemed like a little nook just for me.
