FOG OVER FRISCO/HEAT LIGHTNING
Thursday, March 7:
A Special Tribute to Screen Legend LYLE TALBOT!! Margaret Talbot in Person!!
Due to the snow storm back East, Margaret Talbot is unable to make the show. Margaret's brother Steven (Gilbert from "Leave It To Beaver") will introduce and speak after the 8:00 show of FOG OVER FRISCO, in his sister's stead.
Lyle Talbot appeared in scores of Hollywood films in a career that spanned nearly sixty years. He worked alongside such iconic stars as Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart, Barbara Stanwyck and for legendary directors like William Dieterle, Mervyn LeRoy, Michael Curtiz, William Wellman and yes, Edward D. Wood. His daughter, Margaret Talbot is a staff writer for the New Yorker and has just published a delightful new book about her father called The Entertainer: Movies, Magic and My Father's Twentieth Century. We are thrilled to have Margaret as our guest on this very special night. She will introduce the films and regale the crowd with wonderful stories about her legendary dad.
FOG OVER FRISCO
A high-strung San Francisco society girl leads a dangerous life, consorting with unsavory underworld types and causing her uptight, straight-laced father no shortage of headaches. Her angelic sister is determined to set her on a smarter track, but is it too late?

Cinematography by Tony Gaudio. Directed by William Dieterle. In B&W. Digital. 68 mins. 1934. THURSDAY at 8:00 only!
Out on the Arizona desert along a lonely highway, two sisters (one world-weary, the other innocent) run an auto camp which plays host to an unusual assortment of characters.
