Manchester fans pack American Pavillion

For fest-goers escaping the four-hour-plus marathon of Steven Soderbergh’s Che Guevara double header, the European Champions League soccer final offered its own super sized thrills as Manchester United scored an epic victory on penalties over Brit rivals Chelsea. The American Pavilion was packed with English supporters.

Warner Bros. celebrated its 85th anniversary with the screening of their Clint Eastwood-narrated doc, “You Must Remember This: The Warner Bros. Story,” helmed by critic Richard Schickel.

Eastwood, Schickel and Warner Home Video president Ron Sanders attended the after-party at the Century Club. Dennis Hopper also dropped by to congratulate Eastwood.

Eastwood, a longtime friend of Schickel, agreed to narrate the documentary under one condition: “I said I’d do it only if it wasn’t a puff piece. (Schickel and I) don’t do that.”

“Clint is the most dutiful man I know and when he says he’s going to do something he never backs off,” said Schickel, who wrote the star’s biography.

Doc will air in the U.S. in September on PBS.
