Pencil This In: Podcasting Mixer, The Crimson Kimono Screening,
There’s a screening of Sam Fuller’s The Crimson Kimono tonight at 8 pm in Ramo Auditorium. Here’s the premise: “A pair of LAPD detectives, a murdered stripper, and a love triangle—the quintessential mid-century L.A. story. The twist in director Sam Fuller's largely unseen gem are its interracial relationships and Little Tokyo setting.” A panel discussion, hosted by Larry Mantle of KPCC FM, will features Lon Kurashige, Associate Professor of History, American Studies, and Ethnicity, University of Southern California; Henry Sheehan, Film Critic; James Shigeta, actor from The Crimson Kimono..
