Patt Morrison just interviewed “The Black Dahlia” novelist James Ellroy and Dahlia expert Larry Harnisch on 89.3 KPCC, and will be available for streaming rebroadcast online shortly. According to Larry’s blog, it looks like a rift between him and Ellroy has been resolved.
Ellroy will also be reading from the book from 7:30pm to 8:30pm tonite at the Barnes & Noble on the Third St. Promenade in Santa Monica, and tomorrow night at the Barnes & Noble at the Grove.
Mack Reed at LA Voice points out an article revealing Larry Harnisch’s theory as to who killed and severed Elizabeth Short, and in the comments it appears that Larry has taken offense to Mack’s posting of a crime scene photo. Speaking of the crime scene, Mack points out that he’ll be with the IAAL-MAF bike ride when its path goes by the Norton lot this week.
If you haven’t taken a peek at Universal’s official site for “The Black Dahlia”, you’re missing out on a few neat features, including an interactive map of shoot locations, a documentary on the seedy underbelly of the city called “Dark LA”, and “LA: Then & Now”, a slide show of vintage photos compared to more recent pics.
Sunday’s “The Real Black Dahlia” Crime Bus is sold out, but it appears a few seats are left for the Saturday ride. Click here for more info.
I’ll announce the winner of the Black Dahlia prize pack tomorrow, and on Friday I’ll also post my back to back reviews of both Hollywoodland and The Black Dahlia. I also had a chance to speak with the legendary, Oscar winning production designer of The Black Dahlia, Dante Ferretti last week, and will post about this as well as the locations featured in the film in the coming days.
