Tough Guy Tribute
UCLA Film and Television Archive's tribute to filmmaker Don Siegel continues this weekend with a screening of "Madigan" and "Private Hell 36" on Saturday, August 7, 2005.
LAPD Chief William Bratton will be on hand to introduce these two police procedurals and testify to their versimillitude. We wonder if he'll make the connection between "Madigan's" tale of a cop on the edge searching for a gun lost during an unauthorized raid and Officer Jim Kurring's story arc in PT Anderson's "Magnolia"?
At the James Bridges Theater, is located in Melnitz Hall, on the northeast corner of the UCLA Westwood campus, near the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Hilgard Avenue.
