Re: 32 Films

If you look at Glenn's signature as it appears on the Sony page
(www.glenngould.com), you'll notice that something is missing. The
second N! From something I read, probably on this list, I got the
impression that Glenn signed his name with only one N because
otherwise, when he wrote the double-N, he felt as though he would
never stop.

I know how that feels. My first name (Anne) has two Ns in it. My
signature used to be readable -- unlike the handwriting. But over the
years, my signature has come to look like a segment from an
electrocardiogram The Ns don't look much different than the r or the
b! This might be because I find that it's easier to sign my name
without looking at the signature -- I usually sign checks and credit
card receipts while looking right at the cashier because then I don't
have to concentrate. Now if only I could figure out how to conduct
with my free hand while doing that! ;->

I read Andrew Kazdins book about GG, "Greative Lying" (am I right
about the title?)
Andrew wrote that Glenn was actually quite superstitious about cheques
he wrote to the author. At times, Glenn was so worried about his "bad
luck cheques" that he had to rewrite them even twice. And in one
occasion Glenn telephoned Andrew just to tell him that he had
accidentally written a "bad luck cheque" to him, and Andrew had to
promise Glenn not to use that one. Glenn never told Andrew what were
the criterias for a "bad luck cheque", but I remember that Andrew
thought it had something to do with the way GG made his signature. I
hope I remeber these things correctly, since I don't have the book
available right now.
