Did any sentimental considerations sway my decision to invest in Jersey Boys? Well, every summer as a kid, I played at the Jersey Shore. When I first met Frankie Valli, I told him that whenever I hear him sing "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" I still recall the summery coconut scent of Coppertone wafting across the boardwalk.
I was angry when I heard about the controversy surrounding the name of the new film The Butler. Warner Brothers is saying they will not allow The Weinstein Company to use this title because they have a short film of the same name. Their short film is from 1916 -- that's right, it's from almost 100 years ago!
