Daisy Kenyon: MOMA, June 9 and 18, 2007

Mark your calendars for MOMA's June 9 and June 18 screenings of Preminger's Daisy Kenyon, one of Hollywood's most lucid and mature melodramas, inexplicably underrated for decades. (Anyone out there have more information on screenwriter David Hertz? On the basis of Daisy alone, I reckon him one of best; and he also has a credit on History Is Made at Night....) For some background information, take a look at the 24fps roundtable discussion of Daisy from a few years back, featuring Zach Campbell, Damien Bona, and myself.
