LA WELCH IN PERSON
Raquel Welch will appear at the NY Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Cinematic Goddess, American Sex Symbol, The Films of Raquel Welch from Februray 10-14. Films to be screened include those rarely seen in theatrical format, including Myra Breckinridge, 100 Rifles, Fantastic Voyage, The Wild Party and Mother, Jugs and Speed. What, no, A Swingin’ Summer!?! For more infomration click here.
I think it is great that such a prestigous organization is beginning to recognize the appeal of Sixties actresses. First Tuesday Weld, now Raquel Welch. Maybe Carol Lynley or Pamela Tiffin next Film Society?
Below is a trailer for the Raquel’s violent Euro-western Hannie Caulder (1973). I already have my tickets for the screening and her Q&A.
