Bogie-mania at UCLA film/tv Archive

From Petrified Forest to the Desperate Hours, 15 Bogart films this month. Including Archive-supporter Hugh Hefner's favorite 5 (he has good taste): Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, To Have and Have Not, The Big Sleep, and Key Largo. Hef'll be on hand for the screening of The Maltese Falcon.

Other films of note:

On March 21, Watership Down

March 30 : The Movie that Inspired Me - David Fincher screens Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid

On April 18, Time Bandits

And I would be remiss in omitting...

April 30 - Michelle Johnson's rollicking documentary Triple X Selects—The Best Of Lezsploitation (2007) and director Barbara Peeters' lezsploitation classic Just the Two of Us (1975)

New (somewhat blurry) icon honoring the rather poorly chosen tagline for Scent of Mystery (1960), presented in Smell-o-Vision:

First They Moved
Then They Talked
Now They Smell
