Chad and Jeremy on American Bandstand (November 28, 1964)

From July 12 to August 31, the Northwest Film Center in Portland will present “Wes’s World: Wes Anderson and His Influences”, an opportunity to know not only his work, but the films who has inspired him along his whole career.
Starting with 1998’s “Rushmore,” the Northwest Film Center program will feature screenings of Anderson’s eight features, including now classics like “The Royal Tenenbaums” and “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.” Matt Zoller Seitz, the film critic and RogerEbert.com editor-in-chief who literally wrote the book on Anderson (“The Wes Anderson Collection”) will introduce “The Royal Tenenbaums.”
“Wes’s World” will also include showings of films by François Truffaut, Jacques Cousteau, Werner Herzog, Jean Renoir and Hal Ashby, among others.
Check out the program’s trailer below. The full lineup can be found here, on the Northwest Film Center’s website.
Brett Smiley, mayorial candidate in Providence, Rhode Island, is running a Wes Anderson-inspired campaign ad. According to the National Journal:
