My favorite saying: what's old is now again...
More film on the southside! Woot! Evidently the Queen and Dolly were on the SS for real in the past couple of, and look there's Anna in the ajc. buzz, right here.
According to The Buzz, the story of the movie, A Joyful Noise, centers on efforts to save an ailing gospel choir. Of course we know black and white can always come together when it comes to a good gospel choir! I believe Dr. King, when he was still just Martin, had to sing in one during the Premiere festivities in December of 1939. You know, the Atlanta premiere of Gone With the Wind? the one Hattie McDaniel was NOT invited to attend? Hattie McDaniel, you know, the first black to win an Academy Award?
These folks were allowed to represent her, I presume. From Gone With the Wind Three Day Atlanta Premiere, Herb Bridges
Oh well, glad things have changed a lot in some ways. And to the commenter who was too shy to hollar at Queen Latifah riding down 75? I sure would have been waving furiously.
If you were in on any of the Fayette or Coweta filming, let us know! According to this article, filming will commence in Conyers tomorrow. What if they went and filmed in the tabernacle? I would leave wk for that, I think!
