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

Sun, 19 Jul 1998 20:58:40 -0400 (EDT) The Poodle Springs movie premieres this Saturday, July 25 at 9PM (EDT)
on HBO and has its first repeat at 4:30AM the following morning.

I haven't read the book (beyond Chandler's beginning in Chandler
Speaking), but judging by the teasers HBO has been running, it casts
Marlowe as a 40s fish in early 60s waters and plays up the difference in
style, to allegedly humorous effect. I'll wait and see.
