The Dark Films Are Back!
The EighthAnnual Palm Springs Film Noir Festival opens tonight with The Killers, starring Lee Marvin, Angie Dickinson, John Casavetes, Clu Gallagher, and Ronald Reagan. The beautiful Miss Dickinson will be on hand to discuss making this film with this roster of great actors. Based on a Hemingway short story, this neo-noir film is a classic. The schedule of 14 films and special guests is awesome and fans of this genre will be thrilled by the selection assembled by Founder Arthur Lyons, his wife Barbara, and his dedicated associates. Arthur's untimely death is a blow to his many fans and noir lovers but this festival will be upbeat just as he would want it.
