The Ghost of Gertrude Stein

Last week’s post about Midnight In Paris forgot to mention the amusing Kathy Bates cameo as Gertrude Stein — who, you might not know, had a grandson by the name of Daniel Michael Stein who reportedly had a bad gambling addiction to horseracing.

But at least he got a novel out of it — as he wrote the book on which the 1960’s horseracing flick, Wall of Noise, was based. Not a classic, to be sure, but it’s a decent mod-looking movie poster!

Of course, if you are really interested in learning more about the awesome art collection of Gertrude Stein, then SFMoMA has an excellent show on view now.
