Last night was the Esther Williams night on Turner Classic Movies Channel. So I was admiring the bathing beauty in the movie "Easy to Love", in which she performed in a water show in Florida's Cypress Gardens owned by Van Johnson. She was ready for an outdoor portrait session in the gardens, and the photographer was using a screwmount Leica. Suddenly she made a run for the telephone booth, with a pack of paparazzi already waiting. The arsenals included miniature rangefinders, TLRs, the usual Graflexes, and, lo and behold, one guy had a Kodak Modalist! Was he the smart guy, or being smart, or not so smart? I can visualize him running around chasing the subject, having a hard time holding on to that round brick. Perhaps the retractable lens is a type of protection to prevent the lens from being knocked out of alignment while constantly bumping into the photographer or other things!
