RIP Mr. President
50 years ago today one of the darkest days in American history unfolded.
We’ll never forget November, 22 1963.
The real 1960s began on the afternoon of November 22, 1963. It came to seem that Kennedy’s murder opened some malign trap door in American culture, and the wild bats flapped out. —Lance Morrow

“Francis [Ford Coppola] wanted a decaying, deteriorating feel to the fabric, like the shrouds of the mummies in the catacombs of Bombay. The passage of time would have turned the white fabrics to rich amber, so fragile that it would crumble when you touched it. At the same time, he wanted extremely feminine robes, like the ones worn by the women in paintings by the Czech poster-painter Mucha.” (Eiko and Coppola on Bram Stoker’s Dracula, p. 44)
