greatness at earthquake weather:

Gandhi vs. Tenenbaum

Ironically, I just filmed some footage for a friend of mine at the Forest Hills Tennis Center, a great old stadium where the US Open used to be played, as well as a venue for acts like the Beatles, Sinatra, the Stones and Dylan. In the late 80s, after the US Open moved to Flushing and the community board halted concerts, its been little used and fallen into some disrepair.

It’s soon to be renovated with the intention of bringing concerts back to the stadium – and we were hired to capture a bit of the “before” stage. Built originally in 1923, it has a great, musty, slightly overgrown feel to it, with weeds and trees winding their way through the old wooden benches of the stadium….complete with a feral cat family setting up shop in the old storage rooms.

A recent NYT article about the rennovations and upcoming concerts here.

Little did I know it was also the set for Richie’s epic meltdown, against the one and only Gandhi. There’s a shot in there with Gene Hackman (I think that’s Hackman) in a straw hat sitting in the last row, in front of a stone eagle. I can confirm, those eagles are still there.

It was a strange day out there in Windswept Fields.
