The Ultimate Los Angles Times Misprint!

Retiring Times film reviewer Kevin Thomas (feeling better, thank you) finally got his send-off gathering yesterday. Someone dug out the Nov. 19, 1965 LAT story about Thomas, then 29, being slugged several times by actor Tommy Sands in the Times building—nine months after a panning review. Alas, I'm told the cake inscription that was supposed to read "Tour de Force" came out "Tour de France."

Now I'm sure there's a great pun lurking around here somewhere such as... Having One's Errors And Eating Them Too or Let The France Be With You or Let Them Eat Typos... or - whatever.

But it's late and I'm tired.... and I'm going to bed.
