Blame Canada

Hey, hipster, got eight grand or so lying around your pad unused? Heritage Auction Galleries has just the thing for you: "home" movies of the Rat Pack shot by a Canadian couple while Francis Albert, Dino, Sammy and those other two guys were filming the original Ocean's 11 in Las Vegas in 1960. Also included in the sale, to be held April 14-15, are seven snapshots of a young presidential candidate named John F. Kennedy hanging out with his brother in law Peter Lawford. The pre-auction estimate for the lot is $8k and up, which raises two questions: How much would the snaps be worth if Peter Lawford wasn't in them, and how did Oliver Stone miss this? The two Canadians have to be the only people ever to come in earshot of JFK who weren't named as assassination suspects in the dreadful Stone slander-pic JFK. --Patrick Williams
