Never mind those other guys -- if Jeff Bridges is narrating, it must be cool.

p.s. I guess the chicks were busy baking marijuana brownies and herbal tea ...

FRIDAY AT NORTON SIMON

The Cool School (2007)
Date : Friday, September 12, 2008?Time : 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.?Host : Morgan Neville, Writer and Director?Type : Film
Written by Morgan Neville and Kristine McKenna and directed by Neville, this documentary examines L.A.’s flourishing art scene in the 1950s and 1960s and the artists, curators and local influences that shaped it. Central to that art scene and the film are the Ferus Gallery and its co-founder Walter Hopps, who later became the curator of the Pasadena Art Museum (now the Norton Simon Museum). In 1963 Hopps organized Marcel Duchamp’s first retrospective, which is the focus of the current installation Marcel Duchamp Redux, on view through December 8. Writer and director Morgan Neville introduces the film. Narrated by Jeff Bridges, 86 minutes.

This is great! Cool School is must viewing for putting the LA art scene into context from the perspective of prior generations. That nice screening room @ Norton Simon is a swell place to see it. Enjoy!
