Stanley Kubrick allowed his then-17-year-old daughter, Vivian, to make a documentary about the production of ‘The Shining.’ Created originally for the BBC television show Arena, this documentary offers rare insight into the shooting process of a Kubrick film. This version of the documentary has commentary by Vivian Kubrick.

an act you don’t want to see and one you do - in Windsor
See I would not have minded seeing either act, honestly. Sure Durante was the superior veteran talent, but what the hey.
On this day in music history: March 9, 1987 - “The Joshua Tree”, the fifth studio album by U2 is released. Produced by Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, it is recorded at STS, Danesmoate House, Melbeach and Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin, Ireland from January 1986 - January 1987. After the release of U2’s previous album “The Unforgettable Fire” and the extensive world they undertake in support of it, the band will take their first extended break from the road, sitting out much of 1985 to rest and begin writing material for their next album. Many of the album’s songs are influenced by the band’s travels while touring the US in 1984-85, as well as their participation in the Amnesty International “Conspiracy Of Hope” tour in mid 1986. The albums’ cover photos are taken by photographer Anton Corbjin at the Joshua Tree National Park in the Mojave Desert in California. When Corbijn tells the band about the trees, that they had been named (according Mormon legend) after the prophet Joshua (in the Old Testament in the Bible), as the trees reminded them of the prophet with his hands raised in prayer. Out in the park, they will find one tree by itself (unusual since they normally grow in groups), and take several pictures standing next to the lone tree. Intrigued by the underlying religious significance, Bono will decide to name the album after the tree. The album will immediately be a huge critical and commercial success, cementing the band’s fame on a worldwide basis, breaking sales records in the UK, selling over 300,000 copies in just two days. In the US, it will enter the Top 200 at #7 on April 4, 1987, making it the highest chart debut since the Eagles’ album “The Long Run” in 1979. It will spin off four singles including the chart toppers “With Or Without You” and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”. In February of 1988, it will win two Grammy Awards including Album Of The Year. “The Joshua Tree” will spend 9 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 10x Platinum in the US, receiving a Diamond Certification.

Is there a name for this particular style of poster, which I associate with Bob Peak and Robert McGinnis but has many great practitioners?
Other than, you know, “awesome”?
