Restoration Comedy – Our Life in Film

April 30, 2010 On www.nomeanerplace.com, I recently wrote about the magnificent restoration of “The African Queen,” just released for the first time on DVD and Blu-Ray. As an extra, Paramount commissioned a documentary produced by Nicholas Meyer and directed by Eric Young entitled “Embracing Chaos: The making of ‘The African Queen,’” which documented the events prior to, during, and after the filming of this classic. Seeing this film again, along with the delicious documentary, reminded me of how much a part of my life movies have always occupied.
