Harry Dean Sighting!

There's a one-time screening tomorrow, July 26th (1 p.m., est; 10 a.m., pst), of Frank Tashlin's 1963 comedy with Danny Kaye, "The Man from the Diner's Club."

It's a rare Tashlin flick shot in black-&-white instead of color, but the usual cartoon shenanigans prevail. Among the comic joys here is a bit by no less than Harry Dean Stanton - billed as Dean Stanton as he was in those days - as a poetry-spouting beatnik. (And that's how his character is billed.)

Here's a chance to see something that you never thought you'd see - Tashlin directing Stanton. Check it out. And enjoy.
