The 1950's themed diner at Disney Village at Disneyland Paris is called Annette's. I wonder if they are acknowledging the event in any way. (I would assume that very few Europeans know who she was because neither the show that made her famous nor her later films were exportable.
Some people probably knew who she was because of her having gone public with the fact that she suffered from multiple sclerosis. That was the last thing I knew about her, as she'd faded from public view decades earlier. I wonder if people 50 and under even knew who she was, unless they were fans of old B movies. www.ctvnews.ca/w5/annette-funicello-her-life-with-multiple-sclerosis-1.984202
Okay, I imagine that most of us agree that Paul Walker did not make much of a mark on serious cinema, but the movie in which he stars that is coming out in a few days looks like it might be more interesting than most of his work.
It takes place in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina...
Anyway, it's really bad luck to die in a car crash when you are only the passenger of the car.
I am totally unfamiliar with this actor. I am intrigued however, for obvious reasons, about the upcoming film. Many have been produced mostly with post Katrina scenarios. I don't know of one although they may be "out there" of an "in time" Katrina enactment. I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for this one. Thanks.
