This is an interesting stage for someone who has a small part in Peanuts history. Tennis great Billie Jean King was a friend of Schulz’s, and they worked on each other’s books (Schulz did a lot of good illustrations for Tennis Love.) And now she’s in a curious position for a real, still-alive person: there are apparently three films being made about her. Well, about her and one odd competition she got into, which was publicized as a major part of the battle for women’s equality yet seemed quite silly to me at the time… but actually oddly seemed to have an impact, despite of the very manufactured nature of it. I don’t know how I’d feel if that was being done about me. (Then again, if Emma Stone played me, I’d be fine with that, as unlikely as that casting may seem. Because Emma Stone.)
