    A bit off topic but since we have some movie buffs on here, why not. Had the pleasure of going to the opening night of the Film Festival on Thursday and took some pics of the stars on the red carpet:

    And here are the main "characters" of the documentary Futurespast: Leo and Jordan Melamed. Leo is the Chairman Emeritus of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the pioneer who replaced the traditional trading pits with electronic trading. That is also part of the documentary, which premiered last night. Great movie/documentary. It will air a couple more times at the festival before it will go to other film festivals.

    Lelouch used to be a great director. I loved his movies from the 70/80/90s.

    Yes, Claude Lelouch is the man responsible for the famous 1976, 8 minute video, "Rendezvous" that shows supposedly a 275 (one never sees the car being driven) at crazy speeds through Paris for an early morning meeting with a lover. There is much controversy as to the sound track just being added with a Mercedes sedan actually being driven at much slower speeds. (Have seen photos of a camera being mounted to the front bumper of a Mercedes also.) Something was being driven at high speed as the other cars on the street are obviously being driven at much slower speeds as they are passed. If anyone hasn't seen the video, here is a YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvDXlDxMnb4

    I took a moment just now to view the video again. Leaving You Tube to go to another next video automatically, I see there is a video of LeLouch explaining just a few years ago how the video was made by driving the route again with an interviewer.......
