    Here's a terrific shot from the current hit film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, where Quentin Tarantino used the 100-year-old restaurant Musso & Franks for a real Hollywood location. The white-haired gentleman in the foreground is noted DP Bob Richardson (who operates his own camera), and the mic boom operators work for Mark Ulano, one of the top sound people in the world. The light is coming through the giant white muslin sheet on the left, which creates a nice, soft effect to flatter the actors.

    Well, it's sitting one of MGM's studio-designed cranes. I think the metal frame wrapped around the actual camera is mostly eye-lights & fill lights for the actors as the camera gets closer.

    Very nice! I just read Idle's memoirs, and highly recommend it (them?).

    Larry Linville, in character as Frank Burns (though long after he left MASH) with presidential press secretary James Brady, who was paralyzed in the 1981 attempted assassination of President Reagan.
