Debbie does Los Angeles

Sorry all.  I've been out of touch for too long.  Te truth is, all the public (and private) harassment from Hal Warren's son has me frustrated and I'm trying to take a higher road by holding my tongue so that's all I'll say on that...for now.  On a more positive note.  I'm currently sitting in a Los Angeles hotel room preparing to go to the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival this afternoon at the New Bev Cinema in Hollywood.  The organizers of the event invited me as a special guest to the screening of Ben Solovey's completed restoration of Manos The Hands of Fate.  Ben's done a remarkable job and I can't wait for people to see it looking even better than it did in 1966 at the original premire.  Not sure what the plan is tonight for me but I'll be there at the 9:30 screening.  Hoping for the opportunity to do a Q and A.  Another thing I just learned is that the New Bev Theater is owned by Quentin Tarantino.  One Manos story states that he is a big Manos fan.  Oh. how I would love the chance to ask him about that.  Keeping this short today and will report back tomorrow about the event.  If you are in the LA area and can make it tonight be sure to say hi. http://hollywoodreelindependentfilmfestival.com/

  1. Hope you have a grand old time! Don't let Joe's dumb pigheadedness get you down too much.

  2. I hope your awesome appearance at the festival becomes more awesome in the way you want it to be. But regardless, it'll be great to have you there (sadly, I won't be). I will gleefully anticipate your impressions and "Captain's Log" on the whole thing in the future!

  3. Have a great time! Wish I could be there to see the movie and meet you. Can't wait to see the completed restoration when it comes to bluray! A Master/Debbie commentary would be a nice addition.
