RIP, Joel Schumacher. I met him on the set of the ill-fated Batman & Robin and he couldn’t have been nicer or more hospitable (and the man looooved to gossip). The Incredible Shrinking Woman was an early cable TV classic for me and I loved St Elmo’s Fire, The Client and Flawless. https://t.co/lqs14WPhTm

While filming Batman & Robin, Joel Schumacher would often yell, “Remember, you’re in a cartoon!!!”
In many ways, he “got it” more than most, blending real camp elements into mainstream blockbusters. Nipple suits!
I will watch the film today and enjoy Uma’s performance. RIP.

RIP Joel Schumacher. Forget all about the Batman films. He made a lot of great films. He directed one of my all-time favorite movies “A Time to Kill.”
