Up Six Degrees

We just returned from a matinee showing of the Disney-Pixar film Up and enjoyed it so much we needed a connection to Harzfeld's to justify a post. We found six degrees of separation through Oracle of Bacon. Ed Asner, the voice of Carl, was in the movie Gus (1976) as Hank Cooper, the owner of a losing professional football team. Jeanne Bates played a nurse in the same film. Ms. Bates played, yes, a nurse, in the film Paula (1952) which starred Loretta Young as Paula Rogers. Loretta was a loyal customer of Harzfeld's of Tulsa, Oklahoma in the late '70s and early '80s.

That was fun, and so is the film. Although it does have some touching moments (Michele may have teared up), it's very sweet. We sat close to the screen to compensate for not seeing it in 3D. By the way, Ed Asner's hometown is Kansas City, but that would have been too easy.
