Oh, the innocent early days of Shreveport's foray into the movie industry.
Way back in January 2006 - I was just a wee reporter with a sharp pencil and dull ideas in those days - the makers of "Factory Girl" and a gaggle of paparazzi descended on our fair city. I shadowed the cast and crew during one fine afternoon shoot, watching Edie Sedgwick (Sienna Miller) beg for money, shoot heroin and look like a pixie from Halloween hell.
Aye, the warm make-believe memory is enough to make me wistful.
The Weinstein Co. has finally confirmed its Oscar hopes for the feature film. It opens Dec. 29.
