Our destinations were Venice, Florence, and Verona, we arrived by plane in Venice then did a loop around those cities by train.

For starters, its tragedy hinges not on teenage impatience and suicide, but deep, long-unrequited affection. Convinced that his physical appearance makes him unworthy of his beloved Roxanne, the chivalrous […]

The best movies of 1968.

I don't blog about it every day, but my son John has a blog — that he adds to every day — that goes year by year from 1920 to 2021 and gives his favorite movie (or movies) from each year. For some years, he isolates a single movie, but for other years, he lists a runner-up or 2 or 3.  He hit 1968 today, and this is a year with 4 movies. The top choice is "Monterey Pop":  Truly amazing. And you can watch it at home on 4K now (with the right streaming channels, about which John will always inform...

Adapting Shakespeare: shattering stereotypes of Asian women onstage and onscreen

In 1930, English novelist Evelyn Waugh entertained the prospect of Chinese-American actress Anna May Wong playing Ophelia, Hamlet’s love interest: “I should like to see Miss Wong playing Shakespeare. Why not a Chinese Ophelia? It seems to me that Miss Wong has exactly those attributes which one most requires of Shakespearean heroines.” Waugh went on to say that “I cannot see her as Lady Macbeth, but she seems to me perfectly suited for the role of Juliet or to any of the heroines of the comedies...
