Tony's Favorite Extra

This morning Peppe came to my house to install a new DVD player into my computer. He asked me for a disc. I gave him “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” which I'd just gotten in the post from Amazon.co.uk. He smiled. “I’m in that movie,” he said.

We spent a pleasant half hour grabbing screen shots. Director Anthony Minghella filmed the scene here on the island, over at Ischia Ponte, near Castello Aragonese. All those people were not actors, but rather ordinary Ischians like himself, who understood perfectly how to express grief when a young, unmarried pregnant woman is fished out of the sea.

Re: talented mr. ripley

I looked, but didn't see you. I'll go back and slow the whole thing down. Maybe you went by too quickly! Describe to me again exactly what you were doing, and where you stood. Maybe that will help. If I spot you, then I'll capture the image and put it in a new entry.

By the way, Happy Thanksgiving! If you come here for the holiday, I'll buy you dinner at La Tinaia! Give me a ring.
