Tonight & Tomorrow! It’s All About Ann Dvorak in Chicago


Just a reminder that I am in Chicago for the next two nights (well, the next five nights technically) introducing Ann Dvorak pre-Code films in classic movie houses!

First up is tonight’s 35mm screening of The Strange Love of Molly Louvain at the Patio Theatre at 7:30. I’ll be giving a brief introduction to the film and signing books before and after. The is going to be the last event at the theatre for the foreseeable future, so come on down if you’ve never been. Full details are here.

Tomorrow, I’ll be over at the Pickwick Theatre in Park Ridge for Scarface where I will again be giving a brief introduction to the film and signing copies of Ann Dvorak: Hollywood’s Forgotten Rebel. You can get the lowdown on this screening here. Ann Dvorak screenings on consecutive nights at different theaters doesn’t happen often (if ever), so stop by and say hi if you can!

For those of you who cannot make it to the screenings, here is an interview I did over at the Chicago Reader. 

Hope to see you tonight and tomorrow!!

    I am disappointed that I was not able to make any of your Chicago area appearances. Just bad timing with work and other commitments (and the 6 hour round trip drive) in the middle of the week. Did enjoy the interview with the Chicago Reader. Looked for some mention of the events in the Chicago Tribune (I still subscribe to the printed version; you can tell I’m an oldtimer), but was likewise disappointed to see no mention of the event(s).

    So how about a quick report on the two evenings?

    I’m still in Chicago until tomorrow morning, but will write up a full report from Los Angeles in the next couple of days.
