John Woo appeared at the Virgin Megastore
on Sunset Boulevard
a few years ago, signing copies of the Criterion Edition
of a collection of his film
s on laserdisc
. A friend of mine went to the event. While Mr. Woo was signing his copy of the collection, my friend mentioned that he was getting married soon and had been hoping to play the beautiful opening song
from The Killer
at the wedding
. However, he'd been unable to find it anywhere.
Woo expressed his sympathy and said he would see about getting him a copy. Two weeks later, a package from Hong Kong arrived on my friend's doorstep with a pristine copy of the song inside.
John Woo rules.
