Movie Memorabilia

 

We had so much fun visiting the town of Juliette, GA, USA,

where the movie Fried Green Tomatoes was filmed.

 

This movie poster is inside the Whistle Stop Café.

How can you lose with Kathy Bates and Jessica Tandy!

my friends son works in a cinema, he is able to keep some of the posters, told him to take great care of them as they will be worth a lot sometime
Ginnie Hart: Depending on what movie it was, Derek, somw movie posters would be fun to have around. You're right!

oh, it was actually a movie too.. hmm.. i didn't know that.. sure is a nice capture you got there too.. smile
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Rian. One of those movies where the more often you see it, the more you see! It's one of my favorites...and the one from which our car is named: TOWANDA. smile

After seeing the movie twice and walking into the Whistle Stop Café, I had a kind of 'picture' in my mind what to expect......
It was even more than fun, so many things to see in that café and yes, Kathy and Jessica do a great job in that movie.
Eating green tomatoes was new to me, I can go back for second servings grin
TGIF......counting down......
Ginnie Hart: I am so glad you and I shared this experience, MLMA. It was so fun. Speaking of FGTs, do you know where we can get green tomatoes here in The Netherlands? grin

TGIF, indeed!

that is sooooooo awesome, makes me feel star struck smile great catch my friend, oh and that wasn't air pollution on my pic, just a texture, no worries smile
Ginnie Hart: It's hard to beat such great actresses like these, Elaine. Thanks. But if it were air pollution, is it worse the higher you go, I wonder??
I do not know this movie but I thank you Ginnie of your kind words, big pleasure every time, yes. Good day, are adorable you...
Ginnie Hart: It's a great chick-flick, Pierrot, but many guys actually like it. smile Merci.
I can understand how you enjoyed this visit Ginnie. I must look into this movie I have never seen it.
Ginnie Hart: It's a chick-flick that you might enjoy with your wife, Scotia. There's a lot going on in the movie with a nice twist here and there. smile

Clearly this means a lot to you Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It's not very often you get to visit the place of a movie, Chris, so it did have a lot of appeal for all of us.

This image reminds me I have yet to see this film. Have heard fabulous things about it!
Ginnie Hart: You'll even like it better the second time you see it, Kala. There's a lot going on in it with many twists and turns. smile

It's a very nice composition Ginne. Excellent work. I like it. /////Ginnie, the photo which you saw on my blog this morning is a piece of the castle of Chenonceaux between BOURGES and TOURS. Have a lovely day Ginnie.
Antoine
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Antoine...and special thnaks for the explanation of your image.
Those sundued colours are wonderful Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chad. To be honest, I used selective coloring just on the tomatoes. smile
Awesome framing. Just like the previous one.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, VP. You're very kind.
The best way to eat tomatoes is to fry them in olive oil. The process releases the essential Liposides which are so useful for our well being.

But of course you knew that Ginnie.[grin]
Ginnie Hart: My belief, Richard, is that olive oil is good for just about everything that is healthy. If ever I fry green tomatoes, it will defintiely be in olive oil! We're of like minds. smile

Superb photo with a nice composition. Good day Ginnie.

Nice tribute to this nice movie

Now I am going to have to watch the movie whilst trying my first dish of FGTs ;o)
Ginnie Hart: I don't think you'll be disappointed. (Just ask JIM!)

Like the choice of selective colour.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Aussie. It seemed apropos. smile
Ginnie, say I where you live, I have of to cross(spend) in your corner(place) during my journeys kisses...
Ginnie Hart: If you're ever in The Netherlands on a weekend, Pierrot, in the Rotterdam/Utrecht/Gorinchem area, let us know. Astrid and I could possibly give you a little tour.

The ceiling fan sits like a bow on the picture. Remembering fried tomatoes.
Ginnie Hart: Since it was there and I had nothing else to do with it, Louis, I just left it! smile Thanks.
Nice crop and tone
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chantal.

I remember this poster. How nice to actually visit the place. Great image Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It was a thrill, Frida! Thanks.

Such memories
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Vintage.
Fabulous capture Ginnie.
This movie must mean a lot to you!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Richard, you're right. It's especially a thrill when you can see the actual place of a favorite movie. Merci.

I don't know the movie, it looks like fun.
Nice shot, with the wrinkles in the poster.
Have a nice weekend Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It's a great chick-flick, Fokkio, that even some men like, too. I highly recommend it, especially if you can handle two stories going on at the same time. It's fun. Thanks.

a nice multicultural three's company (the green tomatoe has been fully accepted although looking a bit different - but we love tolerance...) and a lovely two's company- it could be A&G!
Ginnie Hart: Awwwww. How sweet to look at the tomatoes that way, Philine. I like that. You're a sweetheart. Hartstikke bedankt.

Before even reading your caption my first thoughts were, I LOVE that movie and what a perfect place to have found a poster for it, especially if it's the location in which it was filmed! Such a nice Southern wear-n-tear feel, great textures.
Ginnie Hart: You'd love the place, Jess. In fact, if you scroll down, you can see some more of my pics here:

A nice poster. In the photo might be your faces ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Awwww. How sweet of you, Wim! smile Hartstikke bedankt.
Jessica Tandy was a wonderful actress
Ginnie Hart: Yes, she was, Bill. One of the best. It's reminding me how much I want to see "Driving Miss Daisy" again.

One of my all time favorite movies. I've watched it more times than I can count. Your processing here is superb!
Ginnie Hart: It's definitely a winner, Sherri. The more you see it, the more you 'see,' which is half the fun of it. You can imagine how fun it was to be in the actual Whistle Stop Café! Thanks.
This cafe will have this film to use for advertising etc.for many years to come I suspect Ginnie, it must be good for business.
Ginnie Hart: After the movie was finished, Brian, the director specifically said he wanted the Whistle Stop Café to continue being used as such. It has totally revived the little town that was almost dead. It's been great for their economy...and quite nice to be part of it for them when we visited!

so "vintage"
Ginnie Hart: The entire café feels vintage, Olivier. So fun to eat there.
Nicely processed shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Tom.

Little towns are so much fun to visit. On Vet Day, we took a road trip/day trip to the gold country and found a really nice little preserved town with lots of good shopping/browsing and dining/tasting smile

Enjoy the weekend.
Ginnie Hart: I bet you also got some nice pics, knowing you, Maria! You, too, have a great weekend. Thanks.
Seeing that movie poster with the picture of Kathy Bates and Jessica Tandy makes me want to see that wonderful film again. I can't quite make out the autographed signature in the bottom right hand side, Ginnie; do you know what it says?
Ginnie Hart: I've seen the movie at least 5 times now, Beverly, and it just gets better and better. I have enlarged the autograph and best that I can tell, it says "To Robert: Good luck with the cafe. Best, Jon Avnet [director]" How fun.

very vintage! i like how you framed this poster altogether to depict its rich historic qualities. smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Liang. It was such a fun place. smile

There is a similar framed poster at the Irondale Cafe! smile And the FGT are delish! Fannie Flagg stops in whenever she's in town.
Ginnie Hart: I'd love to compare the two cafés, Virginia, and if ever I'm in your neck of the woods, I will. And who knows, maybe it'll be my lucky day and Fannie Flagg will drop by. smile

Excellent. I love movie posters, and used to have a big collection of them.
Ginnie Hart: Were your posters hung up somewhere or rolled up and stored somewhere, Ray? How fun. I bet you could get a pretty penny for them if you still had them!
A classic movie. I will never look at Saran Wrap the same way again.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHA! I love it, Michael. Only Kathy Bates! grin
yes.... wonderful movie... nice week end
Ginnie Hart: Grazie, Fabrizio. A great weekend to you, too.

Ginnie Hart: They wouldn't be there if it weren't for FGTs, Peter! smile Thanks.

I like the way the red and green stand out amongst the monotones.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Cherie. I thought the selective coloring might work.

A definite classic. It's been years since I was reminded of this!
Ginnie Hart: Ever so often I dust it off and watch it again, Marcie. Now Astrid has seen it twice. smile Thanks.
Nicely composed shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, John.

Ginnie Hart: Merci, Rem. Merci.
Thats one of my all time fav movies Ginnie, and a wonderful reminder you offer heresmile
Ginnie Hart: It's a movie you can see over and over again and never get tired of it, Pavan! Thanks.,
Very nice shot Ginnie. I am sure the trip must have been a memorable one.
Ginnie Hart: We'll never forget it, Navin! Thanks.

A wonderful momento of a magic visit I think. Perhaps you should have superimposed the faces of Ginnie and Astrid, that would've been fun!
Ginnie Hart: Awww, what a sweet thought, George. smile Hmmm. You are way ahead of me, I see. THANK YOU for the smile. smile

Hey Ginnie! Nice memorabilia there! It's been a minute! Guess what - I fixed the comments thing on my blog so you can comment away anytime if you are so inclined! I trust all is well and you've had a great year!
Ginnie Hart: Great to see you again, Yinks! Can you believe it's been a year, almost, since I arrived here in The Netherlands. 5 December is the magic day...Sinterklaas day. How apropos!
Another beautiful treatment, I saw this film a long time ago, it's a good film, I liked it very much. A+ VAL smile

I also saw the movie many many moons ago, and it's one that still warms my heart to this very day.

Will rummange around in the sales baskets and shelves this xmas, to see if I can pick it on DVD tongue
Ginnie Hart: It's one of my favorite movies of all time, Fotografa, which made visiting this Whistle Stop Café that much more special. Thank you.
