Not for the first time I have picked a movie to watch after reading a book. I stumbled upon Perfidia by James Ellroy and realized for the first time that the movie LA Confidential was based on reality. I know I am probably the last person to realize that LOL.
I had never seen the movie so we spent a rainy Saturday afternoon watching a copy that was borrowed from the library of course. What a great movie!
I also checked out Chinatown although the story line of that movie takes a lot more liberties with history. I remember it as also being a great movie.
I finished reading Saving Italy which is by the same author as Monuments Men and am waiting for a copy of the movie Monuments Men to become available for check out.
