I’m at a late-afternoon launch party for the TCM Classic Film Festival at the Hollywood Roosevelt hotel, and it’s a very pleasant affair. Nice band, tasty hors d’oeuvres, etc. But you don’t want too many security goons hanging around. The degree of goon security at an event reflects management’s view of human nature. Too many goons indicates a high level of trepidation, if not alarm. Then again you don’t want to be too cavalier. It’s a fine line.
