Director Michael Winner and American Cinematheque retrospective this weekend.

If you're in Los Angeles this weekend, you have the opportunity to see a miniretrospective of films from the now-retired British director Michael Winner at American Cinematheque's Aero (Santa Monica) and Egyptian (Hollywood) theaters.

Winner's now primarily remembered for his numerous action films with Charles Bronson (DEATH WISH screens at the Aero on Friday, March 11th), but he was also renowned for his 60s Swinging London comedies.  I haven't seen THE JOKERS (with a pre-PHANTOM=and-HELLO DOLLY Michael Crawford), but I did see (and enjoy) I'LL NEVER FORGET WHAT'S 'IS NAME a few years ago at the Egyptian.

Here's a link to Sunday night's screening of the latter two films (at the Aero) from the American Cinematheque's website:
