A Match Made in Movie Heaven

March 28, 2004

I read Paul Mazursky's essay on screener videos with much amusement, as I am good friends with a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences ("Pirate Booty," Metropolis, Feb. 29). Of course, I didn't get to borrow any videos this year, which is a real shame since I recently purchased a DVD copying machine. But how could my friend say "no" to his adult daughter? His unique solution: His daughter married a cinematographer--an academy member--so her family was eligible to view the precious tapes. The lesson seems clear: Marry your children off to other academy members, or a fissure may destroy your family.
