In Advance of Its USA Film Fest Debut, a New Web Site for Doc About Bob

The filmmakers responsible for the doc about East Dallas fixture Robert Crawford, better known simply as Bob, send word: Days before His Name Is Bob's debut during the USA Film Festival on Friday at 7 p.m., they've set up a new Web site filled with myriad photos, video clips and audio snippets. It's easy to get lost in the thing.

They also warn those wanting to attend the film's premiere that as of Sunday, half the tickets for the Angelika screening had been sold. If you'd like to see the movie -- and judging from the Friends of Unfair Park's e-mails wondering how to get tickets, I'm going to assume you do -- you can only get them by calling Ticketmaster at 214-631-2787. Tickets will be available for pick-up beginning tomorrow at 6 p.m.

Or you can try go get tix at the Angelika Friday beginning at 6 p.m. But I wouldn't wait. Because everybody knows Bob. But they don't really know Bob.
