Boo! Hollywood’s Great Thrillers

Let’s face it, movie-goers love things that go bump in the night; those moments that make the little hairs spring to attention on the back of our necks.

In this presentation lastinging a little over an hour, Larry uses PowerPoint images and film clips to illustrate the power of good filmmakers to scare us half to death.

And he’ll discusses why we like it so much.  Cases in point:  The moment in “Wait Until Dark” when the very bad guy leaps out of nowhere and the classic “Alien” birthing scene, of course.

But also moments of intense tension in Alfred Hitchcock classics (“Psycho,” “Rear Window,” “North by Northwest”) and others.

Cosby300To mention just a few:  Major indie studio movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's trial for alleged sexual abuses of dozens of female complainants is coming up soon.  Excellent actor Kevin Spacey, facing charges for allegedly groping a teenage boy, has seen his "House of Cards" crumble.  And, sadly, Bill Cosby, formerly known as "America's Dad," is doing 3-to-10 in the slammer after being convicted on three counts of sexual assault.

What about those I'm calling the #Them Too perps?  I had a great time over at HarborChase of the Park Cities retirement community (in the Dallas area) recently with my Movie Memories presentation titled "Hollywood's Hot Movie Scandals."
