Hitchcock, Truffaut, Carbon Negative Craft Cocktails and James Dean’s Favorite Foods.

Dear Friends,

Ever heard of Hitchcock or Truffaut? Most likely you have seen some of their movies—possibly more of the work they directed than by other filmmakers. Our focus this week is on the new documentary Hitchcock/Truffaut as the French director’s daughter Laura and independent filmmaker Roger Leatherwood take turns writing about it. Pam Grady interviews the doc’s director, Kent Jones, who also offers an essay on growing up discovering these movies. As a bonus we offer a selection of most unusual trailers in Eat My Shorts.

James Dean died too young. In a few short years he made three iconic motion pictures and ate well with the many celebrities he worked with. Eat Like the Stars columnist Jenny Hammerton offers us a look at the food he enjoyed with selected recipes from the new book Recipes for Rebels: In the Kitchen with James Dean.

Saturday would have been Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday. In honor of his centennial, we present some Sinatra-related stories we published earlier this year.

Eat, Drink, watch Films and be nostalgic are this week’s themes.

Sincerely,

Gary
