Get Whoa, or: That Robert Duvall Cloning Experiment Did Not Go As Planned
Duvall intro'd the film, per our in-attendance Hanna Raskin, and promised to return for a post-screening Q&A, which he skipped in order to catch a plane. Nevertheless, our Stephen Masker got there before the lights went down and sent back this photo. But ... of what, exactly? Oh, Stephen ...
Three costumed students from the drama department at SMU were standing outside the Cinemark 17 when I arrived. As I was walking towards the theater, they went inside. I followed them and another photographer to a back room where they and Duvall (and maybe three or four other people) were standing around. I don't remember them entering Duvall's theater when he went to speak, so I'm not sure if what they were doing was related to his event.Now I'm more confused. So too the Dallas Film Society: Artistic Director James Faust says there were actually three costumed gents -- another one in red -- and that, far as he could tell, they were there with friends of Duvall's from El Paso. Doing ... something? "We don't know what they were doing, though, or why they were dressed like that," Faust says. "Maybe they just wanted attention?" In which case, mission accomplished.
