CHICAGO – The legacy of public housing is one of the strangest forces of karma in the City of Chicago. For example, sites that were once some of the roughest and most neglected housing for the poor now contain luxury condos. It is the people of those former hellholes that still remember the sorrowful history of what they once called home. The American Theater Company (ATC) have gathered these stories for the poignant and extraordinary “The Projects.”
On the Set: Into the Wee Hours of the Morning, ‘The Dark Knight’ Lights Up
CHICAGO – I told Phil Tadros (my on-the-street Hollywood cameraman) that his first two “The Dark Knight” video segments were good but could be better.
I encouraged him to dig deeper. This time, we bring you what you’ve been asking for: set footage. As in his second segment, he again uses the access-a-friend’s-apartment route.
This video was shot around 1 a.m. on Friday, June 15 at Clarendon and Cuyler in Chicago. At the 1:29 video mark, Gary Oldman (who plays Lt. James Gordon) can be seen in the black suit.
