Golden Boy Comes to the Golden Gate

Those folks at the Balboa Theater say their new calendar should be out and about around October 7th. That's when we find out what titles will appear in the Paramount Pre-Code series. One other notable event at the Balboa - '50s heartthrob Tab Hunter will be appearing live at the Balboa on November 1st and 2nd for screenings of camp classics "Polyester," "Lust in the Dust," and the 1958 western noir "Gunman's Walk." Noir afficionado Eddie Muller will do the interview honors. Muller is the co-author of Hunter's coming autobio, "Tab Hunter Confidential: The Making of a Movie Star." Based on early reviews of the book, Tab should have plenty to talk about.

That's so cool - I can't wait to learn what titles will be featured. I don't know very much about pre-coded films, but I think it's really interesting, and I love old movies. These films you write of, they all sound like classics - films that have endured Time and most impressively, a movement to stamp them out. Go Pre-Codes! The Balboa Theatre sounds like it's planning a bunch of treats for those lucky enough to attend. I look forward to your write-ups on the titles. Gosh, I always learn something when I visit. :)
