Life’s flotsam and jetsam turn up at late 1930’s Holloywoodland’s door, once more, in this insightful tale of wannabes and desperadoes. Tod Hackett, artist, has inspirations to become noticed until he meets Faye Greener, blonde bombshell, and is immediately smitten. She has other ideas. She has Homer Simpson, victim, in her sights and cruelty and loneliness takes new meaning as all three are slowly sucked into the Hollywood system of sycophants, liggers and parasites, sucking the life from others as the life, and soul, is slowly sucked from them. The Day of the Locust, the 1975 John Schlesinger Los Angeles Hollywood California corruption horror thriller (“By Train, By Car, By Bus They Came To Hollywood… In Search Of A Dream.”; “The day of the locust is coming!”; “Based on the novel by Nathanael West”) starring Donald Sutherland, Karen Black, William Atherton, Burgess Meredith (in his nominated for Best Supporting Actor Academy Award role), Richard Dysart, John Hillerman, and Geraldine Page (“as Big Sister”)
