TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3222:

Yes...It's THAT TIME of Year Again!

Tina and I are excited to plan our calendars around the upcoming Leo Carrillo Film Festival that starts August 27th in Carlsbad, California for five consecutive Friday Nights!

That's because being proud residents of Carlsbad ourselves...we know there's more here than just LegoLand for entertainment!

Here's what the City of Carlsbad and the Friends of Leo Carrillo Ranch, Inc. are showing this year, along with some helpful tips on how YOU can attend this fun film festival:

Five consecutive Friday evenings, beginning Aug. 27

Nostalgic entertainment under the stars at a real movie star retreat.  Admission is free.  Movies start promptly at sunset.  Grounds open at 5 p.m. for picnics and tours.  Complementary tour of the hacienda is offered one hour before sunset.

Guests should bring low-back chairs, blankets, and a flashlight.  Warm clothes and appropriate shoes are recommended for uneven terrain throughout the park.  An episode of “The Cisco Kid” precedes the film screening.  Films are not rated.  Parental discretion is advised.  Closed captioning is not available unless otherwise indicated.

2010 Films Schedule

•Aug. 27 – Moonlight and Cactus (1944) run time: 60 minutes.  Naval officer and owner of a western rancho comes home to find his rancho is being run by women, and to his surpsie, run well--with the exception of some mysterious cattle wranglers (Leo Carrillo).  Featuring the Andrews Sisters.  Starring: Leo Carrillo, the Andrews Sisters and Elyse Knox.

•Sept. 3 – City Streets (1938) run time: 65 minutes.  The story of an orphan who finds support in a kindly storekeeper who loves her.  To help her, the older man must deal with a well-intentioned welfare representative who is constantly interfering with their lives.  Starring: Leo Carrillo, Edith Fellows and Tommy Bond.

•Sept. 10 – Sin Town (1942) run time: 73 minutes.  After being conned himself into buying a bunch of dry oil wells, conman Duke decides to lead the town's businessmen in an effort to take the law into their own hands.  When his plan backfires, Duke finds himself at the mercy of the town.  Starring: Leo Carrillo, Constance Bennett, and Broderick Crawford.

•Sept. 17 – Lillian Russell (1940) run time; 127 minutes.  Closed captioning will be available for this film.  A musical biopic of the legendary 19th century musical comedy star.  Discovered in 1880 by bandleader Tony Pastor (Leo Carrillo), Lillian Russell (Alice Faye) wastes no time rising to fame and fortune on the Broadway stage as well as attracting a flurry of eligible bachelors.  Starring: Leo Carrillo, Alice Faye and Don Ameche.

•Sept. 24 – Honululu Lu (1940) run time: 70 minutes.  Upon arriving in Hawaii with Don Esteban Cordoba (Leo Carrillo), Consuelo Cordoba (Lupe Velez) finds herslef in a risque nighclub and due to her involvement with a group of sailors has a chance to become a beauty queen.  Starring: Leo Carrillo, Lupe Velez and Bruce Bennett.

With all that's going on with Tina's and my own personal work schedules, we are still attempting to to take in most of these evenings, like we have done for the past several seasons.

BTW, I blog about this Film Festival every year because there is a comic book connection as well!  There were 40 issues of the Cisco Kid comic book title from Dell Comics, starting in January of 1951 and ending with the Oct/Dec 1958 issue!  Here's a link to all of those covers!

Here's a link to the blog posts that we've blogged about in the past to show you what's at the Leo Carrillo Ranch, as well as what fun we had at the Leo Carrillo Film Festival in recent years:  Click here for the link!

Thanks again to the City of Carlsbad and to the LeoCarrilloRanch.org people, and the FriendsOfCarrilloRanch.org folks for making the Ranch Docent Tours and the Film Festival possible this year!

Oh, and if YOU are attending and see Tina and myself there...Stop by and say hello!

And if you can't make it to this Film Festival any of the 5 Friday Nights...We don't have any Cisco Kid DVDs for sale, (we are keeping ours for our own collection!), but here's a link to one of the better Cisco Kid Collections! Best of The Cisco Kid (35 Episodes)!
