Tonight: The Core Club: Screening of Something Wild (1961)

I’m honored to moderate a QA session tonight at the Core Club with director Jack Garfein after a screening of his long-forgotten (but not anymore) masterpiece Something Wild, starring Carroll Baker and Ralph Meeker (with Mildred Dunnock in a small but important role). The Criterion Collection released Something Wild in January – a long over-due release – with wonderful special features, including the booklet essay by yours truly (now online). If you haven’t seen the film yet, what are you waiting for?

      Love you too, Stevie!

      Garfein has reached out to me for a couple of different events, and I’ve gotten to know him and his wife too – which has been so wonderful. I think back on my 12 year old self devouring Carroll Baker’s autobiography and staring at the pictures of her young husband. And he’s still with us!! I am so happy his film is now available for a wide audience. It’s about time!!

      Sadly, no. But it was a wonderful night. My nephew came too – he had never seen the film, so it was SO fun to experience it through his eyes. He got the humor too. Not a lot of people do!
