Last Week's Trivia Winner....

Question: The sepia-tone-inspired look used in the filming of the 1971 film "Fiddler on the Roof" was created using what unique "device" ???

Answer: To get the look he wanted for the film, director Norman Jewison told Director of Photography Oswald Morris, who was famous for shooting color films in unusual styles, to shoot the film in an earthy tone. Morris saw a woman wearing brown nylon hosiery, thought "That's the tone we want"....asked the woman for the stockings on the spot, and shot the entire film with a stocking over the lens!

Winners: Kendall W. and Gary M. of Lubbock
