A Tour De Force - International Film Festival

Among the competitive field, Palm Springs International Film Festival rates a thumbs up from Hollywood powerhouses Peter Bart and Peter Gruber
This charming location just may be the ideal spot for a film festival. Palm Springs is an easy ride from L.A. or Santa Barbara, where a lot of the talent lives. It’s easy for the industry to monitor, as opposed to Cannes or Venice. It has great amenities — beautiful hotels, swimming pools, golf clubs — and the setting offers a sense of romance to the films themselves.

Rear View - Life of a Cowboy

Johnny Boyle sang his way into local hearts
It’s 1939 and you’re shivering in a gray, eastern city when into town rides a tanned cowboy with a gap in his teeth. His name is Johnny Boyle; his sidekick is a lanky cut-up named Frank Bogert. They drag a barbecue out of their woodie station wagon and pretty soon the steaks are on and Johnny is tossing the lariat and singing in his heavenly baritone about finding cool water in the desert.
