Hey Scott,
The location of the projector via Don's body ('you simply put your product in there') in the 'itch' cut totally supports and amplifies your reading of this scene. I think I know which direction you're going with the last scene of "The Phantom". It reminded me of this: Don walking away from the set is pretty hardcore.


That's not exactly where I was going initially, but now that you've brought it up, I don't think I can resist invoking Pulp in a debate about class privilege. Ironized class privilege, obviously, as Don's the usurper and Megan the landed lady, but still, the '50s lend themselves to such readings. Now, get to work on my next post. I want to seem brilliant, don't you know?
