Memo Pad: A Complicated Time for Peter Kaplan... No Smoking...

What exactly led to Peter Kaplan's departure from the New York Observer?



NO SMOKING: Posters for Anne Fontaine’s movie “Coco Avant Chanel,” depicting Audrey Tautou as the designer holding her signature cigarette, have been banned from Paris metro and bus stations. A spokeswoman for Metrobus, which controls advertising in the city’s transit system, said under French law it is illegal to display a poster of someone smoking. Instead, adverts showing Tautou as Chanel embracing the big love of her life, Arthur Capel (played by Alessandro Nivola), will greet French commuters. The movie, about Chanel’s early life, was released in French movie theaters this week.
