SIGHTING: "The Potato Elf" and . . . Anjelica Huston?
From "The Nerd Hunter," Stephen Rodrick's profile of Hollywood casting
director Allison Jones in *The New Yorker *(April 6, 2015):

Jones returned to California and enrolled in the producer program at the
American Film Institute. One of her early assignments was to cast another
student's adaptation of Vladimir Nabokov's short story "The Potato Elf."
She showed me a file containing head shots and film memos from the
project. "I rejected Anjelica Huston," Jones said. "At that time, she was
John Huston's daughter, Jack Nicholson's girlfriend, and a model. That was
her claim to fame. Thirty years later, I still don't know what I'm doing."
