Re: Clarifying the intent/strategy for such a festival [was:Re: A 1st cut at a "Noir-Roughie" series...]
I just "acquired" a copy of JUDY the other night, and the color just doesn't give it that rough el cheapo look like the b/w "roughies" that were made well into the late 1960s. A skin flick exploiting boobs that just happens to include a psycho killer. A very representative roughie festival could be easily made of the stuff available in b/w. As noted, the issue for many of these films is the SWV burned in logo. Don may have to throw a few bucks their way, just so they turn their backs and play deaf and dumb, or just select films that aren't beholden to them.
