Let’s go bowling! This is from the underrated ‘Across The Universe’, which offended Beatles purists but was beautifully directed by Julie Taymor, and featured Jim Sturgess as an uncanny amalgam of John and Paul.
That’s what I like to see; a nice clean empty comments box!
So, I’ll go first! Thanks for sharing this entertaining bit of a movie I probably should have seen by now. Just visiting from Ohio to see what’s new with my favorite elderly detectives.
Was bowling ever a thing in Britain? Usians play 10 pins while in Western Canada we play 5 pins and somewhere or other they play candle pins or duck pins (don’t know how many to a set.) Through the 50s and into the 60s thousands of people were on teams which played in leagues and ended each season with a dinner at which trophies were presented to various different category winners. I have several of my Dad’s trophies, but if I win anything it is the booby prize for the lowest score. (my parents were horrified.) I noticed a large bowling alley in Brussels (I think) but we didn’t go over to see what they played.
The nearest I have got to bowling is own the record ‘Take The Skinheads Bowling’, by Camper Van Beethoven, and to watch ‘The Big Lebowski’ many, many, times.
