A final meet-and-greet–Zoners meet Johnny Depp at Santa Anita as PUBLIC ENEMIES wraps

On its last day of shooting, PUBLIC ENEMIES ended as it had begun: with Johnny Depp striding over to say hello to well-wishers who had gathered at the film site to express their gratitude for his work. On Monday, however, only a couple of people were able to negotiate their way around the immense Santa Anita racetrack on a broiling afternoon and actually encounter Johnny. Dharma_bum (who broke the news of the location on the Zone on Sunday afternoon) met up with Zoner cats7; they were prepared simply to wave goodbye to Johnny as his SUV pulled out of the parking lot. Instead–to their great surprise–Johnny got out of the SUV and came over to them, smiling. He signed autographs and posed for pictures with Dharma and cats7 and a few other very lucky, very happy visitors.

These photos are screencaps taken from the video cats7 shot yesterday; we thank her very much for sharing them. Many thanks, too, to dharma_bum, for sharing her photos on the Zone. You can read more about their adventures on the News & Views forum and on the Pit, where their pictures are discussed.

Many thanks, too, to Johnny Depp, for stopping to say hello, and thereby transforming the end of the PUBLIC ENEMIES filming from sad to sweet. You left us smiling, JD; thanks for the memories. –Part-Time Poet
