Podcast: Dallas Noir Film Fest

David Hale Smith has got something for your eyes and ears on May 17.
By |

We’re going to take a second to get to the point of this podcast. First, we had to talk about Candy Evans and her third failed effort to get elected to the Dallas City Council. Then we had to talk about why she blocked me on Twitter. That’s your amuse bouche.

Then we go hard on a cool film festival upcoming at the Violet Crown (formerly Magnolia). Literary agent to the stars David Hale Smith joins us to talk about, in no particular order: how much he earns every year, how a class project in DISD’s K.B. Polk Elementary led him to his career, when he stopped taking drugs, hamburgers, and, finally, the film festival he helped launch, along with Steve Stodghill and Paul Coggins. The Dallas Noir Fest runs May 17–19 at the Violet Crown (formerly the Magnolia). It opens with the great Hell or High Water.
