Culture Lust by Angela Carone

If You Love Balloons and Movies

Though environmentalists would hate the idea of balloons wafting about the landscape, I don't think they'd mind them digitally dropped into our favorite movies.  Take a few minutes to watch.  It's a lovely idea (what a sap I am!).  The balloon punctuates emotional moments in Casablanca , dances with Gene Kelly in Singing in the Rain , annoys King Kong, saves the life of Anne Parillaud in La Femme Nikita and meets Clint Eastwood at high noon.  Kudos to Jerry Rees , a director and Cal Arts grad, for creating Helium and Celluloid
