"Twisted Love" Backyard Screening February 9th
It's that time again. After a brief hiatus for the holidays, our series of Backyard Screenings is back. The boys of "Gay Gardens" along with our good friend Mark present an evening of cinema to celebrate/destroy all that you know about love. Bring us your huddled masses, your bitter angry loners. Bring forth your downtrodden souls who ache for the Valentine's Day decorations to cease. Come one, come all and see what lurks within the world of "Twisted Love!"
The pre-show entertainment will be:
Movin' With Nancy (1967)
Billed as the "full-hour musical spectacular that won Nancy Sinatra the coveted Hollywood Star of Tomorrow award," this 1967 NBC-TV special, sponsored by Royal Crown Cola, is hosted by Nancy and features Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Lee Hazlewood and Frank Sinatra (billed as 'A Very Close Relative').
Our kick ass feature films will be:
Private Parts (1972)
When Cheryl and her roommate quarrel, Cheryl moves into her aunt's skid-row hotel in downtown L.A. rather than return home to Ohio. The lodgers are odd, Aunt Martha is a moralizer obsessed with funerals, murder is afoot, and the inexperienced and trusting Cheryl may be the next victim. She wants to be treated like a woman, and she's drawn to George, a handsome photographer who longs for human contact but sleeps with a water-inflated doll and spies on Cheryl as she bathes. Jeff, a neighborhood clerk, may be Cheryl's only ally in what she doesn't realize is a perilous residence haunted by family secrets. And, what happened to Alice, a model who used to have Cheryl's room?
Wild At Heart (1990)
Wild at Heart is a film written for the screen and directed by David Lynch, based on Barry Gifford's novel Wild at Heart: The Story of Sailor and Lula about Sailor Ripley (Nicolas Cage) and Lula Pace Fortune (Laura Dern), a young couple from Cape Fear, North Carolina who, after his return from prison, decide to go on the run from her overbearing mother (Diane Ladd) and, because of her mother, the mob becomes involved. The film is a road movie and includes bizarre, almost supernatural events and off-kilter violence with sometimes overtly heavy allusions to The Wizard of Oz and references to Elvis Presley and his movies.
Dressed to Kill (1980)
A transsexual murders one of his psychiatrist's patients, and now he's after the prostitute who witnessed it. Tagline: "Brian de Palma, master of the macabre, invites you to a showing of the latest fashion... in murder."
