It Happens in Vegas Mostly Happened in Manhattan

I am in a hotel in Florida and finally get to see “It Happens in Vegas” starring Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz as starcrossed innebriated while spontaneously married then slot jackpot winning lovers and directed by Todd Vaughn.  When they were getting set to film the scenes on the double decker I got the “service order” (as we call it in the tour bus biz) to do the directors scouting run through.

 

When the film was actually shot you guessed it Hal Glicksman got the call.

Well when Woody Allen just used one of our buses they hired an actual guide Daniel Shapiro and gave him the actual rate of pay for a working actor for the day. In “Vegas” the characters ran on and off did physical comedy on the bus and though the tour guide looked familiar he was played by an actor named Eric Zuckerman (I watched the credits roll).

 

The movie was touching (I cried). And the couple lived in the appartment building in Brooklyn Heights where Hart Crane the poet resided when he wrote the “Bridge Cycle” as well as where Mary Roebling directed construction of the bridge (the poet Tsuarah Litsky lives there today).

P.s: I used to say that Hart Crane was the only Brooklyn writer to commit suicide by jumping off a boat (he jumped off a ship on the way back from Mexico in a full tuxedo) not true anymore Spalding Gray a few years back jumped off the Staten island Ferry.
