Reminder: Timothy Dalton Appearance, Diabolik Screening In LA TONIGHT!
Los Angeles spy fans, clear your calenders for tonight if you haven't already! As I previously reported, Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright hosts his "Wright Stuff" film festival at the New Beverly Theater, and tonight's double feature is Mike Hodges' Flash Gordon (1980, co-starring future James Bond Timothy Dalton) and Mario Bava's pop-art Sixties spy masterpiece Danger: Diabolik (1968). Dalton will appear in person to discuss his role in Flash Gordon at 7:30, and director/Bava fan Joe Dante will join Wright to introduce Diabolik at 9:40. Both films are archival prints that come directly from the studios, so this is an event not to be missed.
