The Guerilla Drive-In on the CBS Evening News

Jack Renaud, the producer for the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, called me this afternoon to let me know that the piece he put together on Guerilla Drive-Ins was probably going to air tonight. That was really nice of him; I didn’t know that Big Powerful TV News Producers did that. I suspect they usually don’t, and that Jack is just particularly friendly. Anyhow, thanks to him, I was able to get the word out, and TiVo the story! Here it is:

Hurrah, we’re all rich and famous now!

  1. Did you notice, John:
    – The online CBSNews story, where you responded to the “controversy”, says you show the movies in NY, not PA? Glad you corrected them in your post.
    – You are one of the lead links on as of 4pm saturday? kinda cool.
    Reminds me (as I was reminded at your wedding – NO offense) of The Jerk:
    Navin R. Johnson: The new phone book’s here! The new phone book’s here!
    Harry Hartounian: Boy, I wish I could get that excited about nothing.
    Navin R. Johnson: Nothing? Are you kidding? Page 73 – Johnson, Navin R.! I’m somebody now! Millions of people look at this book (ED: website) everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity – your name in print – that makes people. I’m in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.
    [the Sniper points to Navin’s name in the phone book]
    Sniper: Johnson, Navin R… sounds like a typical bastard.


  2. Awesome!
    I still think Gung Ho (the Ron Howard movie) at an old abandoned auto plant would make a good one. In case you run out of ideas, which I can’t imagine ever happening.
