FRIDAY, APRIL 13th & SATURDAY, APRIL 14th
Are you coming to the TCM Festival this year to see some of the many great stars like KIM NOVAK, KIRK DOUGLAS , MEL BROOKS , LIZA MINNELLI & DEBBIE REYNOLDS ? Perhaps it’s to see , “Chinatown” with Robert Evans & Robert Towne or “the Wolf Man” introduced by Rick Baker. For us, it’s impossible to choose, because as much as we want to be at the movies, we want to be here to at the store when you come out of the dark. For the first time, it’s our extreme pleasure to be invited to sell books for a couple of our favorite authors at CLUB TCM @ the Roosevelt Hotel.
On Friday the 13th, from 2:30 to 4 p.m., our luck will certainly be “charmed” as we join our friend, “The Czar of Noir”, Eddie Muller & Rose McGowan as they present “The Ultimate Film Noir” a presentation where they will present as many questions as answers in the great debate about the best noir performances, directors, and films. Eddie will then sign copies of his essential guide to the genre, “Dark City.” If we’re lucky, maybe Rose will sign a few copies too!
Eddie will also be involved with interviews and screenings throughout the weekend with lovely ladies, Rhonda Fleming, Marsha Hunt & Peggy Cummins.
Then, we return on Saturday, April 14th , from 12:30 to 2 p.m., we return with another friend of the store Deborah Nadoolman Landis and her presentation, “The Good, the Bad. & the Beautiful”, a presentation on the importance of costume to character in film. Deborah, besides dressing the Blues Brothers & Indiana Jones and being nominated for an Oscar, has put together, “Dressed”, the most beautiful compilation on the history of costume design in film, and we’ll be there to make sure you get a signed copy! I’m even going to offer free shipping to those who buy a copy, so it can be waiting at home when you get back from this spectacular weekend! Deborah will also introduce several of the screenings
If you aren’t attending, we’ll get you a signed copy and get it shipped your way once the weekend has wrapped. We hope to see you there next weekend!
