Repressed Cinema: Girls of 42nd Street
Repressed Cinema presents a rare 35mm print of Andy Milligan’s GIRLS OF
42ND STREET with Milligan Biographer Jimmy McDonough in attendance!
OF 42ND STREET (1973) Shot on location on gritty 42nd Street, Milligan
presents us with a portrait of Dusty, a down and out working girl. She
does anything she can to get by, including ripping off johns. Can she
find true love in her life with all the low life denziens she runs
around with? Many consider this Milligan’s best surviving film.
Milligan’s Biographer Jimmy McDonough will be speaking before the film
and answering questions. McDonough is the author of “Big Bosoms and
Square Jaws: The Biography Russ Meyer, King of the Sex Film ” and
“Shakey: Neil Young’s Biography”. Jimmy’s also was one of the forces
behind the original run of the notorious “Sleazoid Express”. Jimmy’s
first book was “The Ghastly One: The Sex-Gore Netherworld of Filmmaker
Andy Milligan” and it remains his favorite.
Before the feature
there will be vintage Andy Milligan exploitation trailers. Bring your
copy of “The Ghastly One” if you would like it signed. Underground
Comics for sale in the lobby, as usual.
