  1. There was a TV version of Dorian Gray, produced by Rankin Bass (yes, they of the endless stop-motion Christmas specials). Dorian became an actress, and it was her first screen test that aged in her stead. It had a weird vibe, like nobody involved knew how to make a grown-up film.

    “Purple Rose of Cairo” proposed a two-way door.

    Disneyland Paris had this:

    WDW in Florida is about to open another spin on that idea. You’re herded into a reproduction of Grauman’s Chinese Theater to see a cartoon about Goofy running a train, then the screen becomes the entrance to the physical train ride.

  2. That’s rather good! I think he should’ve been miniature when he first entered the movie, though.

  3. Favorite moment: In the Italian western, resisting the urge to answer the phone while being stared down by … well, everybody.

  4. Martin Short’s so good.
