"It only takes a sip of wine to tell if it's a good bottle"- one of my favorite lines from Pillow Talk . It's Thelma Ritter's (Alma) response after Doris Day (Jan Morrow) says she barely knows Rock Hudson (Rex Stetson). I must have seen this film at least 15x, but it was a rare treat to see the 1959 actual film (not DVD) on the big screen!
Tonight's Outdoor screening at Jamaican Jerk Hut (Wed. July 15th 9pm) is the outrageous Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Get there early, this one is selling out!
The QFest offices are all agog today, because the QFest surprise film is Eating Out 3 and a Q&A with the one and only, Mink Stole has been added ! (not being a John Water's fan, I don't really know this actress, but everyone else is pumped up!)
Eating Out I and II, created by Allan Brocka, have been immensely popular at past QFest festivals, as it turns out the film is also screening in LA on the same day QFest screens it (Sunday, July 19th 7pm Prince Theater) and now the director wants to be in Philly, since we have Mink Stole!
Filmmaker Magazine features writer/director, Nicole Opper of Off and Running which screens on Sunday, July 19th Ritz East1 12pm
