Ditto! What a great lineup! All my favorites, and a couple extra thrown in for good measure. I really wish I could be there for the Lyle Talbot presentations. How exciting!

Dewey, can you give a preview of your Noir line-up?

...And for the umpteenth time when IS that festival.

Maven, I love it that you simply can't remember the date of the big Noir show!! It starts Friday, May 10 and
runs for two weeks! I'm about 80% done with the programming -- still some holes to fill -- but it's still a
little early to start letting the cat out of the bag. Rest assured, though: this will be one incredible series,
perhaps the most exciting one yet!!

So, here's a little teaser:

Is it that time again? WOO-HOO!!! Let me huddle with Moraldo so we can figure out our schedule and we will be there!

Looking forward to May as well!!!

I can't believe I've SEEN "WICKED WOMAN" before!! The trailer made me howl, Dewey. Beverly Michaels looks like she's about to climb Richard Egan like a tree. He literally slams her to the floor. ( Whew! What a hit! ) Take a look at that. And when he slams her to the bed...that mattress must have been a morgue slab. Look at it. OW!! NO BOUNCE! I've got the Noir Fest schedule tatooed on my arm now so I won't forget.

:oops:
