WGA writers’ block party

It became a night to match the name to the face. Pictures of some of the famous names in screenwriting were exhibited in Thursday at the Santa Monica Museum of Art.

The exhibit, called simply “Screenwriters,” was previewed as part of the Writers Guild of America’s annual nomi-nees reception. The likes of Cameron Crowe, Billy Bob Thornton and Anthony Minghella gazed at portraits of greats like Billy Wilder, Ring Lardner Jr. and Robert Towne, to name just a few. Many of those exhibited were present, including Lardner and Buck Henry.

And there was a special surprise waiting for Thornton when he arrived: a Frito pie, an Arkansas favorite. He shared it with Minghella, whom he called “my English brother.”
