RARA-AVIS: Black Dahlia web site, and _Poodle Springs_ movie

Sun, 19 Jul 1998 18:23:09 -0400 (EDT) I saw a mention of this in rec.arts.mystery, but it's worth a note


It's not the best-designed site, nor is it as informative as it could
be, but any reader of Ellroy's book will want to have a look. It's
done by a writer, Pamela Hazelton, who's having some kind of on-line
chat thing on 27 July.

On another note,


shows a TV adaptation of Parker's book is in the works. It'll star
James Caan and be directed by Bob Rafelson, who directed the remake of
_The Postman Always Rings Twice_, which I haven't seen, although I've
heard it's pretty bad. No clue on who's doing the TV movie, or when
it'll be on.

I read _Poodle Springs_ when it came out, but I've completely
forgotten it. All I remember is thinking Parker was no Chandler, but
I'd already known that.
