“There used to be just one way. There was one way you could do things. There were people who protected it like a copyright, a secret cult only for the initiated. That’s why I don’t regret making Breathless and blowing that all apart.”
Jean-Luc Godard’s New Wave masterpiece premiered in Paris on this date in 1960.
The exhibition hasn’t even opened yet and people are so supportive. Thank you very much BUST & Kelsey for such a sweet write up.

On Nov. 30, 1954, a character named Charlotte Braun debuted in the much-loved, 4-year-old comic strip Peanuts – and people immediately hated her. Above is Charles Schulz’s reply to one reader complaint, and the picture he drew to really drive the point home. It reads:
Dear Miss Swaim,
I am taking your suggestions regarding Charlotte Braun, and will eventually discard her. If she appears anymore it will be in strips that were already completed before I got your letter or because someone writes in saying that they like her. Remember, however, that you and your friends will have the death of an innocent child on your conscience. Are you prepared to accept such responsibility?
Thanks for writing and I hope that future releases will please you.
Charles M. Schulz
