TRIVIA – CURTIS HANSON TRIBUTE
This week we lost a legendary filmmaker when director Curtis Hanson died at the age 71. For some time, Curtis had been battling a rare terminal condition known as Frontotemporal Degeneration (or FTD). On Tuesday, September 20th, Curtis sadly passed away in his home. It feels only right to honor this incredible director with some Cinema Squad Trivia.
