Rumble Fish

Rumble Fish is a 1983 American drama film directed by Francis Ford Coppola. It is based on the novel Rumble Fish by S. E. Hinton, who co-wrote the screenplay; the film centers on the relationship between a character called the Motorcycle Boy, a revered former gang leader wishing to live a more peaceful life, his younger brother, Rusty James, a teenaged hoodlum who aspires to become as feared as the Motorcycle Boy. Coppola wrote the screenplay for the film with Hinton on his days off from shooting The Outsiders, he made the films back to back, retaining much of the same cast and crew Matt Dillon and Diane Lane. Rumble Fish is dedicated to Coppola's brother August; the film is notable for its avant-garde style with a film noir feel, shot on stark high-contrast black-and-white film, using the spherical cinematographic process with allusions to French New Wave cinema and German Expressionism. Rumble Fish features an experimental score by Stewart Copeland, drummer of the musical group the Police, who used a Musync, a new device at the time.

Set in Tulsa, the film begins in a diner called Bennys Billiards, where local tough guy Rusty James is told by Midget that rival group leader Biff Wilcox wants to meet him that night in an abandoned garage lot for a fight. Accepting the challenge, Rusty James talks with his friends — the wily Smokey, loyal B. J. and tall, nerdy Steve - who all have a different take on the forthcoming fight. Steve mentions that Rusty James' older brother, "The Motorcycle Boy," would not be pleased with the fight as he had created a truce forbidding gang fights, or "rumbles." Rusty James dismisses him, saying that the Motorcycle Boy has been gone for two months, leaving without explanation or promise of return. Rusty James visits his girlfriend, Patty meets his cadre and walks to the abandoned garage lot, where Biff and his buddies appear; the two battle, with the fight ending when Rusty James disarms Biff and beats him unconscious. The Motorcycle Boy arrives on his motorcycle and his appearance distracts Rusty James, slashed by Biff in the side with a shard of glass.

Incensed, the Motorcycle Boy sends his motorcycle flying into Biff. The Motorcycle Boy and Steve nurse him to health through the night. Steve and the injured Rusty James talk about how the Motorcycle Boy is 21 years old, colorblind deaf, noticeably aloof — the last trait causing many to believe he is insane; the Motorcycle Boy and Rusty James share the next evening with their alcoholic, welfare-dependent father, who says that the Motorcycle Boy takes after his mother whereas, it is implied, Rusty James takes after him. Things start to go wrong for Rusty James: he's kicked out of school after his frequent fights. Despite Rusty James's desire to resume gang activity, the Motorcycle Boy implies that he has no interest in doing so. Rusty James has sex with another girl and Patty rejects him; the two brothers and Steve head across the river one night to a strip of bars, where Rusty James enjoys forgetting his troubles. The Motorcycle Boy mentions that he located their long-lost mother during his recent trip while she was with a movie producer, which took him to California although he did not reach the ocean.

Steve and Rusty James wander drunkenly home, are attacked by thugs, but both are saved by the Motorcycle Boy. As he nurses Rusty James again, the Motorcycle Boy tells him that the gang life and the rumbles he yearns for and idolizes are not what he believes them to be. Steve calls the Motorcycle Boy crazy, a claim which the Motorcycle Boy does not deny — further prompting Rusty James to believe his brother is insane, just like his runaway mother was. Rusty James meets up with the Motorcycle Boy the next day in a pet store, where the latter is strangely fascinated with the Siamese fighting fish, which he refers to as "rumble fish." Officer Patterson suspects. The brothers leave and meet their father, who explains to Rusty James that, contrary to popular belief, neither his mother nor brother are crazy, but rather they were both born with an acute perception; the brothers go for a motorcycle ride through the city and arrive at the Pet Store where the Motorcycle Boy breaks in and starts to set the animals loose.

Rusty James makes a last-gasp effort to convince his brother to reunite with him, but the Motorcycle Boy refuses, explaining that the differences between them are too great for them to have the life Rusty James speaks of. The Motorcycle Boy takes the fish and rushes to free them in the river, but is fatally shot by Officer Patterson before he can. Rusty James, after hearing the gunshot, finishes his brother's last attempt while a large crowd of people converges on his body. Rusty James reaches the Pacific Ocean and enjoys the shining sun and flocks of birds flying around the beach, he tries to forget what happened to his brother. Francis Ford Coppola was drawn to S. E. Hinton's novel Rumble Fish because of the strong personal identification he had with the subject matter — a younger brother who hero-worships an older, intellectually superior brother, which mirrored the relationship between Coppola and his brother, August. A dedication to August appears as the film's final end credit; the director said that he "started to use Rumble Fish as my carrot for what I promised myself when I finished The Outsiders".

Halfway through the production of The Outsiders, Coppola decided that he wanted to retain the same production team, stay in Tulsa, shoot Rumble Fish right after The Outsiders. He wrote the screenplay for R

Myrtle Edwards Park

Myrtle Edwards Park in Seattle, Washington is a 4.8-acre public park along the Elliott Bay waterfront north of Belltown. It features a 1.25-mile long bicycle and walking path and is a good place to see eagles and crows. The park was named Elliott Bay Park, but was renamed after the late Seattle city councilwoman Myrtle Edwards in 1976 after her family withdrew her name from what is now Gas Works Park because of the design emphasis on the gasification plant. Now, Myrtle Edwards Park celebrates a different kind of plant — the hemp plant — by hosting the annual Seattle Hempfest. From 1964 until 2008 the park was the site of the annual Fourth of Jul-Ivar's celebration — one of Seattle's large Fourth of July fireworks shows; the Olympic Sculpture Park, part of Seattle Art Museum, opened on the southern end in 2007. At the northern end is Centennial Park operated by the Port of Seattle, known as Elliott Bay Park until 2011. Near the park's northern end is the sculpture Adjacent, Upon by Michael Heizer.

The Myrtle Edwards and Centennial parks are sometimes described as a single park. Railroad tracks and a fence run along the narrow park's eastern side. Beyond the tracks is a major roadway, Elliott Avenue West; these obstacles make it difficult to enter the park except at the southern ends. A pedestrian/bicycle overpass at West Thomas Street 1⁄2 mi from the park's southern end, was constructed in 2012 to address these concerns.
