ON HIATUS ... or something like that

 

      

My blog posts for ONE WAY STREET will be missing in action as I attempt to complete my biography of Michael Curtiz in 2015.

 

I have several terrific events coming up in 2015: NOIR CITY Hollywood at the Egyptian Theatre April 3-19,  The 16th Annual Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival in Palm Springs, NOIR CITY Chicago in the month of August and most exciting, I’ll be producing and hosting the first annual Palm Springs Classic Science Fiction Festival on October 21-23 at the Camelot Theaters.

 

Best Regards,

The timekeepers bell finally sounded for Budd Schulberg who died aged 95 today. Although he became one of the more astute chroniclers of Old Hollywood, his seminal writing including the novel What Makes Sammy Run? and screenplays for On the Waterfront, The Harder They Fall (Bogart's last film that ranks with The Setup as the best boxing movie ever made) and A Face in the Crowd will continue to enthrall future generations.

Here's a link to a New York Times interview with Schulberg from 2006. I enjoyed that he thought the best scene in On the Waterfront was also my favorite as well.
