Boy Wonder & Miss Cake make a porno

Rick Castro, owner/curator of Antebellum Gallery in Hollywood, continues his monthly movie series, Fetish Film Fridays, at the Egyptian Theater this week. This Friday’s feature, Inserts, is a local tale– a story of Los Angeles in a state of flux as the movie industry ditched silent films and moved onto making talkies, while the city was condemning and demolishing properties to make way for the Hollywood Freeway.

Inserts, which, by the way, was rated X, stars a young (pre-Jaws) Richard Dreyfuss as Boy Wonder, a washed-up silent movie director who, unable to make the transition to talkies in the 1930s, turns to making cheap, silent sex films with a desperate actress named Miss Cake (Jessica Harper.)

Veronica Cartwright, who also stars in the movie, will appear with Castro at the screening.

Says Castro, “It’s like an X-rated version of Sunset Boulevard.”

Inserts, Friday, Jan. 16th at 7:30 PM; Egyptian Theater 6712 Hollywood Blvd. Los Angeles 90028 Reservations recommended, 323-466-3456. Trailer here.
