Suddenly, starting yesterday (i.e., Monday) morning, all those vaguely bothersome humanoids with industry passes started cramming into the press and industry screenings, and within hours journos were heard bitching to one another about getting shut out of showings of essential-to-see films. I couldn’t get into Mary Harron’s The Notorious Bettie Page and then I was shut out of Michael Winterbottom’s Tristram Shandy. And yet this morning I got into the 10 a.m. Walk the Line press screening without any difficulty. Peter Howell told me that local Fox publicists had a well-attended press screening a couple of weeks ago, so maybe that was why. Variety‘s Joe Leydon says the Bettie Page jam-up happened simply because everyone wanted to see Gretchen Mol looking stylishly naked in that really dirty 1950s way.
