"Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" Anyone else looking forward to this film?

Some good tidbits. They missed the Paul Revere & the Raiders connection, though. Terry Melcher (Doris Day's son) produced Paul Revere & the Raiders. The album that Sharon Tate plays in the movie, "The Spirit of '67" with the songs "Good Thing" and "Hungry", which is what is playing when Charlie Manson comes to the house on Cielo Drive looking for Terry Melcher.

Terry and Mark Lindsay (lead vocalist of Paul Revere & the Raiders) lived together in that house in the late-'60s. The song "Good Thing" was written by Mark and Terry in the very room where Sharon Tate, Jay Sebring et al would later be slaughtered.

When Terry and his girlfriend Candice Bergen decided to live together, Mark and Terry left the Cielo Drive house and that is when Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate moved in.

Other people that were invited to hang out with Sharon Tate and friends that night of August 8, 1969 but did not make it for one reason or another were Quincy Jones and John Phillips.

Clu is a New Beverly regular...always sits in the front row. I bet he didn't even have to wait for a phone call. QT probably told him in person. Clu also shows up at the American Cinematheque and Noir City and TCM Film Festival screenings around town...always front and center. Eddie Muller acknowledges Clu at the Noir City screenings.

Actually had the good fortune to sit next to Clu at a screening of "The Killers" that he and Lee Marvin starred in 1964.

Did you catch the Maltese Falcon statue that Margot Robbie fondles in the bookshop?

Always see him a lot on the old TV reruns. What a film history he has. I did catch the Maltese Falcon. Also loved the sexy poster of Anne Francis. :notworthy:

I saw it last night. Liked it. But check this out:

This morning, at work, I see I have an appointment in Beverly Hills. Guess where? Yep. I couldn't believe it!  Ha!

Watch out for those old hippies driving Priuses too fast down Benedict canyon. They aren't high, but they are texting while driving.

Quentin Tarantino first saw Julia Butters on a tv show called "American Housewife" and got the idea to cast her.

Thankfully, no use of the word "nigger". After his last two movies it needed a rest.

What will Spike Lee have to whine about now?  LOL

Hi Strider. I've been listening to a lot of Led Zeppelin again recently, so, I thought I'd drop by.

That could have been the Brad Pitt character. :)

^ Nice!! Yours?

Nope. They are property of the New Beverly Cinema...which Quentin Tarantino owns and programs.

I took a friend who hadn't seen it yet and since she lives on the Westside I thought it would be fun to see it at the Bruin Westwood, which is where Quentin filmed the Margot Robbie scene. For a truly meta experience, I had my friend sit in the same seat that Margot sat in.

Great scene! That would be so surreal to sit in a theatre and observe how a movie you starred in was received by the audience. 

Did your friend take off her shoes too? 

Why were her feet so dirty in that scene?

No...my friend kept her shoes on. Besides, there was a couple sitting directly in front of us so she couldn't put her feet up even if she wanted to do so. FYI...the Margot seat is Row M seat #106.

Sharon Tate loved walking barefoot so Margot was totally in character.

Did you swipe this, Strider? Or was this on display at the theater?

I knew there had to be something. I also saw where they took out the overhead security camera.

No wonder Margaret Qualley is so beautiful. With Andie MacDowell as her mother she is from good breed stock.

I went the other day and saw the film for a second time. Enjoyed it even more than the first time.

Lots of little details I missed the first time.

For those who grew up in SoCal some of the icons associated with the film.

That's what I'd like to do.

Great pics. :)

While I've got a face, Margot Robbie will always have a seat...
Ah, come on, someone was always gonna crack wise with that one. Oops, I said 'crack'...
