Three weeks ago my husband took me to a signing for producer Jerry Bruckheimer's book, When Lightning Strikes -- Four Decades of Filmmaking. No matter how long the line, there was never a question we wouldn't enjoy every minute of the wait, with my love for books and my husband's love for everything CSI-everything-Bruckheimer. A tribute to Mr. Bruckheimer, since my husband just retired from policing after 30 years. So on a perfect, sunny day, we, along with countless others, hit the back roads to line up on the bucolic sidewalks of Bloomfield, a charming Kentucky town.
Jerry Bruckheimer has indeed produced legendary films across the decades -- Flashdance, Black Hawk Down, Remember the Titans, Pearl Harbor, Pirates of the Caribbean and many more, as well as multiple smart and captivating television series CSI, The Amazing Race and others.
