    The Black Dahlia murder is a horrific mystery about the death of Elizabeth Short. I recall a made for TV movie about it staring Lucy Arnez many years ago. Now, this tragedy is on the big silver screen. Why?

    If you go to the Black Dahlia web site, there are some pretty gruesome pictures to view. She definitely pissed somebody off.

    Um yeah. I was stupid enough to look up the pictures and now I'll have nightmares.

    Not for the faint of heart/stomach.

    Because there are very few original ideas left in Hollywood.

    It was also a book by James Ellroy, who wrote L.A. Confidential and several other excellent books.

    She pissed someone off, noquestion about it.

    You've started a thread about it. Thanks for helping them promote the movie.

    Too bad it didn't help Snakes on a Plane!
  8. Technically, "True Confessions," the terrific John Gregory Dunne novel that got made into an OK DeNiro-Duvall film, was also about this murder.

    Sorry I'm late to this one -- was caught up reading the "Water is Wet" thread, and then went straight over to "The Sky is Blue."

    Bingo. Ellroy's books are excellent and the last one made into a movie, L.A. Confidential, was a big success.
