Last Weekend was Filled with War Years' FILM NOIR STYLE at the American Cinematheque


Thanks to everyone who came to last Sunday's Film Noir Style "The War Years" event at the American Cinematheque! The Aero Theatre had a very full house - even more than the first event in the series - and the responses to both my talk and book have been wonderfully overwhelming.

I loved that fact that several people who saw my intro to The Philadelphia Story for Last Remaining Seats came to hear an even more extended version of my presentations! In addition, many new people came who had been following me for years and were finally able to attend an event. And seeing Laura on the big screen? Just WOW.

As always, a big thanks to Jeff Mantor of the Larry Edmunds Bookshop for being by my side and doing all the heavy lifting (literally).

Next up - "The Year of Transition 1946" with a screening of The Killers (1946) on Saturday, July 29. Visit the American Cinematheque's site for tickets.

For "The War Years," I chose a black Donna Morgan sheath dress 
that featured signature design elements from the 1940s, 
especially the keyhole and sleek minimal silhouette

I paired my dress with a black 1950s lizard embossed leather handbag 
and bright blue snake embossed d'orsay pumps

I was delighted that some friends were able to come to the event, 
including the warm and wonderful Monica Banken
and author Sloan De Forest

See you July 29 for "The Year of Transition 1946" and a screening of The Killers (1946)!
