POINT BLANK (1967)
50TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING
Q&A FOLLOWS WITH CO-STAR ANGIE DICKINSON
AHRYA FINE ARTS THEATER
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 5, AT 7:30 PM

Laemmle Theatres and the Anniversary Classics Series present a screening of the influential and imaginative 1967 thriller, John Boorman’s 'Point Blank.' Later critics described the film as a blend of the style of classic film noir and the technical innovations of the French New Wave. Oscar winner Lee Marvin stars as a man seeking revenge against a former business partner who double crossed him, stole his wife and left him for dead during a robbery at the deserted prison of Alcatraz. Marvin’s Walker (no first name) tracks them both to Los Angeles, which has been brilliantly photographed by Boorman and cinematographer Philip H. Lathrop. The screenplay was written by Alexander Jacobs, David and Rafe Newhouse, from a novel by Richard Stark (Donald E. Westlake).
