Get Shorty


Sonnenfeld directs this crime comedy,based on the Elmore Leonard novel, about a gangster (John Travolta) who comes to Hollywood to collect a debt and gets involved in the movie business. Co-starring starring Danny Devito, Gene Hackman and Rene Russo. Sonnenfeld’s wife, Susan Ringo works on the film as a producer.

 I was seeing a lot of really good things about Get Shorty when it came out, and my wife pointed out that if you validate the good reviews, you also have to validate the bad reviews.

Ringo, Sonnenfeld marry


Ringo and Sonnenfeld get married aboard a New Orleans riverboat during the wrap party for Miller’s Crossing, for which he served as cinematographer. Sonnenfeld calls his wife “Sweetie”.

Without Sweetie I would be a really pathetic guy . . . sort of living alone eating Chinese food.
