Film blogger Flickhead has organized an Angie Dickinson blog-a-thon for today. Anyone (that means you, if you have a blog) is welcome to join: post an entry about Dickinson to your site, and then let Flickhead know the URL. If you don't care to blog, head over to Flickhead's site for a good long afternoon read.
If you haven't ever seen an Angie Dickinson movie ... well, you've probably been living in a cave. Her filmography spans decades and a number of genres, and includes Rio Bravo, Ocean's Eleven (she also has a fleeting cameo in the remake), The Killers, Big Bad Mama, Dressed to Kill, and Even Cowgirls Get the Blues. She also worked a lot in television and starred in the show Police Woman.
If you're in Austin next week, you have a chance to see a Dickinson movie on the big screen. On the closing night of QT Fest, Pretty Maids in a Row screens on Sunday, April 30. The 1971 film was directed by Roger Vadim, written by Gene Roddenberry, and starred Rock Hudson, Dickinson, Telly Savalas, and Roddy McDowell -- is this for real? I hope I'll get to see it.
