The trailer for “The Black Dahlia”, the film adaptation of James Ellroy’s novel, is now available online… and putting my interest in the real life case of Elizabeth Short’s murder aside, it looks like a creepy, fascinating film noir. If its only half as good as “LA Confidential”, I’ll be one happy film geek.
As mentioned a few weeks back, “The Black Dahlia” hits theatres September 15th, one week after the scheduled release of “Hollywoodland”, about the suspicious suicide of Superman actor George Reeves.
UPDATE: Black Dahlia expert Larry Harnisch points out that today would have been Elizabeth Short’s 82nd birthday.
