In addition to hosting The Film Noir Foundation's upcoming NOIR CITY events in Portland and Washington DC, Eddie will soon be spreading the Noir gospel in Lyon, Manhattan, and while cruising the Caribbean.
First it's off to France for the Institut Lumière's 2013 Grand Lyon Film Festival Oct. 14-20, where he and Philippe Garnier will present their second "Art of Noir" film series, featuring screenings of recent FNF restorations Try and Get Me and High Tide, as well as the brand new DCP of Gun Crazy, highlighted by the appearance of the film's star, Peggy Cummins!
Then it's on the nation's capital to participate in a special "roundtable" presentation of Native Son as part of the NOIR CITY: DC series (October 26) at the AFI Theater Cultural Center, before heading to New York to present a three-film program of noir as part of the Museum of Modern Art's Festival of Preservation (Try and Get Me, Crashout, and Alias Nick Beal)
After a little rest, Eddie will be sailing the bounding main, December 8-13, as he joins Robert Osborne and Ben Mankiewicz (and a gallery of celebrity guests) on the TCM Classics Cruise of the Caribbean; Eddie will be presenting films and discussing noir and film preservation.
Don't worry, San Franciscans, he'll be back home in time for NOIR CITY XMAS on December 18 at historic Castro Theatre!
