Bob Dylan And Penelope Cruz In A Vintage Daily TwitPic

Y’all know Roger Ebert, right? Noted film critic from Chicago. Used to be on TV. Well Mr. Ebert’s been around quite a bit, working the scene, schmoozing with celebrities, hitting the festival circuit and so on. Yesterday, he apparently took a dive into his archives and dug out this little gem of an image for today’s Daily TwitPic.

Hit the rewind button to the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. It wasn’t exactly a magical year for movies, with hits like “X2: X-Men United” and “Finding Nemo” balanced by the latter two “Matrix” movies, “Terminator 3” and the third “Lord of the Rings” movie (let’s face it– that one kind of drags on a bit). There was also “Masked and Anonymous,” a little independent film written by and starring Bob Dylan and an ensemble cast that included, among others, Penelope Cruz. It wasn’t very good. Ebert himself gave it only half a star. But he appreciated the players enough to snap this photo.
