The Desert Classic Film Society Presents Bob Hope in MY FAVORITE BRUNETTE 1947.

Baby photographer Ronnie Jackson, on death row in San Quentin, tells reporters how he got there: taking care of his private-eye neighbor’s office, Ronnie is asked by the irresistible Baroness Montay to find the missing Baron. There follow confusing but sinister doings in a gloomy mansion and a private sanatorium, with every plot twist a parody of Film Noir cliches.

This excellent 1947 Bob Hope comedy also stars Dorothy Lamour, Peter Lorre, Lon Chaney Jr. plus Alan Ladd as a hard-boiled private detective hot on a case.

Film Historian Christopher Perry  will introduce the film.  Rare vintage film prints will be screened on the big screen.  The audience will be invited to ask questions after the program, which will last approximately 2 hours.

MY FAVORITE BRUNETTE  will be presented one-night-only on Friday,  February 3 , at 7 pm  at The Bijou Cinema.  The Bijou Cinema is located at 57482 Onaga Trail in Yucca Valley.  Admission is $5 per person.

For information and to join the society go to the website www.meetup.com/DESERT-CLASSIC-FILM-SOCIETY   Seating is limited.  Reservations are recommended and can be made on the website.  There is no charge to become a member.

For other information contact Christopher Perry at 760-365-0475.
