Hollywood Beauty Stephanie Powers best known for her successful television show in the 1980’s “Hart to Hart,” was the special guest of The Camelot Theaters in Palm Springs on Thursday, May 12th as The 2011 Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival began.
“Founded in 2000 by the late mystery author and Palm Springs community leader Arthur Lyons, this unique festival features an eclectic mixture of landmark and obscure vintage movies from the classic film noir era. Laden with period post war cynicism, these glorious black and white films are laden with suspense, sexuality and crime portrayed from the perspective of the criminals.”
Opening night included the screening of Blake Edwards film Experiment in Terror from 1962 and starred Glen Ford, Lee Remick and Stephanie Powers, a short question and answer session with Ms. Powers, a book signing of Ms. Power’s memoir One From The Hart and a private reception for sponsors and all access pass holders.
As this weekend continues, more Film Noire films will be screened along with special guest stars Julie Adams, Barrie Chase, Jeanne Cooper, Diane Baker and Norman Lloyd.
