What if we explained to you that in just a several months, you could go to a screening of the 1994 comedy-cult common Clifford in Los Angeles, then check out Martin Shorter, Richard Variety, director Paul Flaherty, and other exclusive attendees discuss about it later on with recognised Clifford superfan Tom Scharpling serving as moderator? That would be rather cool, proper? You’d in all probability freak out like a 10-calendar year-old boy, indeed?

Properly, guess what? The movie Vulture honored in 2021 by supplying it the lengthy, in-depth, Nic Cage–cameo–featuring oral heritage it so richly deserved is now getting double-honored at Dynasty Typewriter in L.A. on Saturday, December 17, thanks to oral-history writer Rob Turbovsky and new film-screening nonprofit Hollywood Entertainment. Right here are all the information for the occasion, titled “A Quick Night time With Clifford”:

On December 17th, be a part of us for the to start with-ever significant retrospective of Clifford’s genesis and legacy. In-human being, star Martin Quick, co-star Richard Kind, director Paul Flaherty, and to-be-announced special attendees will examine the film’s hard-gained fight into the comedy pantheon through cable screenings, term-of-mouth, and its legion of perfectly-recognised evangelists from Elizabeth Taylor to Nicolas Cage. Some of all those supporters (such as Tom Scharpling) will surface in person to examine the film’s affect and ecstasy. 


In 1994, Clifford, the wild and amazing comedy about a pretty lousy 10-calendar year-old performed by then-40-year-outdated Martin Short, was launched to crucial and industrial indifference. It has gone on to become just one of the definitive cult comedies of its period. To quotation observed Clifford lover David Letterman, “It’s not a common motion picture … I really do not know what they considered when they had been generating it. It is a piece of wonderment now.”
