CRABCAKE: Annapolis Film Festival, Opening Night (March 2017)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20.  In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!


This Crabcake is all about opening night. Th newest effort by Rob Reiner, LBJ was screened at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis Maryland and Reiner was in attendance along with Jeffrey Donovan who played JFK.

We hear the post screening with the film’s creators moderated by WOR Film Critic Joe Neumaier. Included in the panel were Reiner along with producers Trevor and Tim White and Matthew George; and writer Joey Hartstone. Of course, Reiner has some comments on the current situation in Washington DC.

After the screening, things heated up at the Boys & Girls Club of Annapolis which is the old Wiley Bates High School. During segregation, Annapolis had a white high school (Maryland Hall) and a black one (Boys & Girls Club) and the the locations were selected as a nod to LBJ and the passage of the Civil Rights Act which was a milestone of his administration.

LBJ stars Woody Harrelson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jeffrey Donovan, and Richard Jenkins.
