September's Conclusion of FILM NOIR STYLE Series at the American Cinematheque


Thanks to all who came to the final event in my Film Noir Style series for the American Cinematheque! It was such a pleasure meeting so many new people and spending time with good friends through the series - and all of it because of our shared love of film noir. Much love to Jeff Mantor and Sean Hathwell of the Larry Edmunds Bookshop for all their support through my events. And thanks to Ryan Marker, manager of the Aero Theatre, for being such an incredible host. I can't wait to return.

And a BIG thanks to Theresa Brown who flew all the way across the country from NYC just to see my closing event and Jane Greer in Out of the Past (1947) on the big screen. These events just reminded me yet again what makes our film family so special. I love you all.

For my "Post-War Years" event, I chose a white DKNY dress with blue polkadots and a sweetheart neckline in honor of Rita Hayworth's opening costume from Jean Louis in The Lady from Shanghai (1948). I paired my dress with raspberry patent pumps and a white patent purse.

I was so thrilled that Kevin was able to attend my events this year
and meet so many members of my film family

Theresa stayed and played around Santa Monica for two days, visiting many of the historic places I recommended to her. After my event, we just had to take her to Guido's restaurant in West LA since it was a favorite haunt of Hollywood luminaries like director Michael Cimino (The Deerhunter).

Until next time!
