Synchronicity at the stroke of Midnight
October 9th, 2005 11:56AM

Sometimes it's a little eerie how the same thing will keep popping up in my life, even if it's something incredibly obscure, outdated, what have you. It's like my concentrating on it brings it to the attention of the universe.

Recently I've had an old movie called Midnight on my mind. A generous friend was kind enough to burn it to DVD for me--it hasn't had an official release, more's the pity--and I've been designing a cover for it, going through many drafts. It's one of the 1939 gems, a terrific comedy starring Claudette Colbert.

So then I get the new J. Peterman catalog in the mail, and on page 41 I read this: "Remember the one where Claudette Colbert arrives in Paris without a cent, no luggage, nothing but the classic dress on her back, and by next morning she's in a suite at the Ritz with John Barrymore, Don Ameche, and Francis Lederer all after her?"

Holy cats. It's Midnight.

With any luck, its suddenly bobbing up like this in several different minds will make it bob up in the minds of those who could release it on DVD...
