Episode #55: Bunker Hill: Noir, Doomed and Still Relevant
Join us this week as we talk with historian Jim Dawson about his book “Los Angeles’s Bunker Hill: Pulp Fiction’s Mean Streets and Film Noir’s Ground Zero!” and how this lost neighborhood has infiltrated the collective consciousness of film buffs the world over. We’ll also visit with Navajo photographer Pamela J. Peters, whose most recent project focuses on the legacy of relocated Native Americans in mid-century downtown Los Angeles, evoked through contemporary images in the spirit of Kent McKenzie’s 1961 film, “The Exiles.”
We’ll also discuss the closure of the Los Angeles Police Revolver and Athletic Club Cafe, sharks in the Venice canals, an overdue revamp of the L.A. Times comments policy, Geoff Palmer’s non-Tuscan development at 9th and Broadway, the Dal Rae steakhouse's destruction of its vintage neon sign, historical programming at Sycamore Grove and possible alternatives for California’s redevelopment agencies. All this and more as Kim & Richard usher in the week of March 3rd, 2014
