An Evening With George Clooney And The Other Stars Of The Monuments Men

Tuesday evening, between snowstorms, I was invited by my friend, New York publicist Peggy Siegel, to attended the world premier of George Clooney's new film, The Monuments Men.  This is a compelling movie that takes place towards the end of World War II about the art looted by the Nazis and those who were sent to find and save it.  The film is very entertaining and is accompanied by a huge musical score.  It pays a great service to society by reminding us of the horrors committed by the Nazi regime.  In doing so, it provides a drastic, historical perspective of this most unfortunate time in history, which is important for young viewers to see.  Immediately following the premier, there was a celebration at The Metropolitan Club, an exquisite piece of architecture.
