Pageviews past week

One can argue that, the two biggest or most memorable TV show personalities to move from the small screen success of TV show sitcoms to big screen Hollywood success are Penny Marshal and Tom Hanks. They are both major marquee names in Hollywood today. Mr. Hanks made his Splash on the big screen in 1984 in some film about a mermaid. A few years later, Ms. Marshall came into a league of her own in 1992 with 3 big screen films on her directorial resume. This movie was released just a leap year later and is most possible the best film to portray that jump from the small screen to the big. This film is a classic. It shows adults, how sweet it is to be a child.This film is one to be treasured! The cast is note worthy as well. Elizabeth Perkins is excellen, Robert Loggia is plays his as well. Also look for strong performances from John Lovitz, John Heard, and even Mercedes Ruehl. Grade A

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
