A funny (hat tip Instapundit -- as if he needed the notoreity).

"California Screaming":

Another very amusing column by Cathy Seipp about my town's dysfunctional signature industry. It closes with this funny story:

Screaming actors, it seems, can be easier to deal with, perhaps because they are not always famous for their brains. Many years ago, I read a story about how Roger Moore (a nonscreamer) took a younger actor aside and suggested he stop attacking everyone on the set. I'm not in this business to win a popularity contest, the screamer fumed. I just want to be a good actor.

Well, you've failed at being a good actor, Moore replied reasonably. Why not try for the popularity contest?
