Today, I got one of those emails trying to get me to engage more with Pinterest, and one of the pins it offered me was this one, which I thought was cool, because it’s one of my fave flicks of all time.
So I repinned it.
But then I noticed something… you ever take a good look at the passengers on the bus who turn back to stare at Benjamin and Elaine.
It’s like Mike Nichols deliberately filled the bus with People Who Will Never Be Seen Riding a Bus. At least, that would be the case in Columbia in 2014. And I’m even thinking it would be the case in California in 1967.
Dig the guys in suits. Especially the guy wearing cufflinks.
This is such a glaring anomaly that I find myself wondering whether it’s intentional, and it means something. Like maybe Nichols wanted a painfully bourgeois set of people to be staring at our lovebirds, or something.
Anyway, I’d never noticed it before, and I found it interesting…
