Paul Thomas Anderson

"Paul Thomas Anderson" by Candice Breitz.

The best magazine
profile I've read in a long time (by the great John H. Richardson) reveals the secret origin of director Paul Thomas Anderson ("There Will Be Blood," "Boogie Nights," "Punch Drunk Love" etc.).

Sent me to read
this and this too.

I already knew it, but maybe you didn't: Anderson's father was Ernie Anderson the legendary ABC-TV VO announcer. Remember "The Lo-o-o-o-ove Boat"? That was Ernie. He also used to host a TV kiddie horror show in Cleveland as "Ghoulardi."
