Keith David Quote of the Month: September 2005

Back in 1995, Wayne Wang directed a small film called Smoke starring Harvey Keitel. It was largely based on the writings of Paul Aster and the action centers on a cigar shop in Brooklyn (shot on location). When the film finished shooting early, the crew found themselves with the cigar shop available for another full week. Wang, Aster and Keitel then proceeded to write and create Blue in the Face, a series of connected small stories which touch on the essence of Brooklyn itself. There are tons of cameos, including one by Keith David as the spirit of Jackie Robinson. The quote makes more sense if you see the film, which is worth it:

Jackie Robinson: "A day in Brooklyn just wouldn't be complete without stopping for a Belgian Waffle, would it?"
