Posts Tagged ‘Mary Astor’


I’m on the tail end of a three week road trip working on a variety of video projects and I took the above picture at sunset this evening in Quincy, Illinois. The town sits on the Mississippi and no doubt was a stop for Mark Twain who came from Hannibal, Missouri just down river. Quincy also happens to be where actress Mary Astor (The Maltese Falcon) was born. And much more recently—this year— filmmakers (and brother/sister and business partners)  Peter and Rachel Craig of Quincy were featured in Reel Chicago after their short film Une Histoire d’Amour played at Slamdance.  According to Peter’s bio on Spacmanx, one of his latest scripts, “Relativity was purchased and is currently in development at Walden Media.”

Screenwriting from unlikely places….
