I don't know if we have any FWers in LA, but I wanted to give a shameless plug shout out about an upcoming film series at UCLA's Billy Wilder Theater. A good friend of mine has a new book out about shadows cinema of the 1970s (Opening Wednesday at a Theater of Drive-In Near You: The Shadow Cinema of the American '70s. UCLA is screening 10 of the movies from the book over the course of August, starting Friday Aug 4. Charley will be signing books and doing post-screening interviews on Aug 4 (Prime Cut) and Aug 5 (Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia) Some of these films aren't readily available in any format (Hickey & Boggs) and others rarely show on a big screen (Two-Lane Blacktop), so just wanted to get the info out there in case anyone was interested.

I obviously can't make it as I'm quite a few thousand miles away, but I wish I could. I can't believe they made a movie based on a Fletch quote!

That's pretty awesome. I'm an entire country away but I have a few friends in the LA area and I'll definitely let them know.
