Here's the card that I scanned for Myrnaloy. Her movie is called Fitzcarraldo. It's a foreign film so I only saw the trailer for it but it looked so goood. I think I caught the story line cuz Myrna says she lurves it.
its the coolest card ever! Teh husband even likes it too.
So, the idea behind Fitzcarraldo is that there's this guy who wants to build an opera house in the jungle of Peru (brazil?). But he needs the money right? There's this untapped rubber tree plantation that he gets the rights to, but getting there is impossible. He has to get this steam ship, go down this river, stop at a certain point and haul the boat OVER a mountain. Which takes forever, 'cause its about 1906 and he has to use all these aborginees to get it done. It really shows what one man will do for his dream.
The thing is, the director really DID get this boat pulled over a mountain.
My husband and I want to make a shot-for-shot remake. We're going to get a bunch of hipsters to pull our toyota corolla over Mount Tabor (pretty much: downtown portland). We're going to call it: Fitzcarolla
