§ Kate Hudson will star in Big Eyes a film about the painter Margaret Keane . Keane is credited with developing the seminal style for sentimental big-eyed waif and animal paintings — a style that was so popular that her husband actually took credit with it for a while until she sued him — and won in court by painting right in front of the jury.

    I remember at one point Matthew Sweet was supposed to be putting out a book on Keane’s paintings. I wonder if it ever came out.
