'RIO BRAVO' AND 'DRESSED TO KILL' REMAIN TWO FILMS SHE SEEMS ESPECIALLY PROUD OF
Variety's Todd Gilchrist spoke with Angie Dickinson ahead of her appearance tonight at the TCM Film Festival, where she was to introduce a 4K restoration of Howard Hawks' Rio Bravo. Toward the end of the conversation, Dressed To Kill comes into the picture:
Are there other films from your career you’re especially proud of?
I don’t know. “Rio Bravo” is one that just holds up no matter when. “Dressed to Kill,” I would like to have been in it just a little bit more before they knocked me off.
Audiences have embraced that film more in recent years. How was Brian De Palma to work with?
He was great and he [allowed] no fussiness. It was hard work because he was a very serious filmmaker, and then he took on serious subjects, so you have to do it that way. But he was a master director — oh, my God.
