NOIR CITY 6—James Ellroy Intro to Dalton Trumbo Doublebill
James Ellroy delivered a hardboiled (and hilarious!) introduction to Noir City's doublebill of “Gun Crazy” (1950) and “The Prowler” (1951), both written by the infamously-blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo

“With arms akimbo and legs planted firmly apart, James Ellroy delivered a hardboiled (and hilarious!) introduction to Noir City’s doublebill of ‘Gun Crazy’ (1950) and ‘The Prowler’ (1951), both written by the infamously-blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. Not only is Trumbo the uncredited screenwriter on The Prowler—screened at Noir City in a sprarkling new restoration print—but his voice can be heard as the voice of John Gilvray, the night-time radio DJ.”
