  • Having re-watched “Beauty And The Beast,” I decided to finally check out one of the last episodes, a handmade “Rip Van Winkle” directed by Francis Ford Coppola with Harry Dean Stanton perfectly cast in the title role. Of course, I’m now kicking myself now for not having seen this delightful and goofy piece of small-screen art earlier. With its primitive video effects and the faux-naïve, theatrical production design by Eiko Ishioka, “Rip Van Winkle” is a crayon sketch for Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
