How right or how wrong does it get when Gertrude Stein appears in the movies? I had a second look at Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris -- and compared his Gertrude to her twin in Alan Rudolph's cult classic, The Moderns:

I rec'd a notice from She Writes (first in a very long time) that you had posted a new blog and this one suited my needs perfectly.  I recently saw the Woody Allen film and wondered what Renate thought of it.  Hooray!!  You wrote about it AND you have given me the title of another film ... one with a more believable Gertie!  Thank you!
