I have two new recent events of Keir’s to post. Both have to do with the TCM Classic Film Festival. In the first Keir is alone in a discussion panel on the screening of DAVID AND LISA held on April 08, 2017. The other is an event both Keir and Mia attended celebrating the TCM Film Festival. Keir looked very dapper and Mia looked very elegant in black.

M.I.A. – Missing in Action, Not Mia Dillon
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      3 Comments

Like the title says I’m sorry I’ve been MIA-Missing in Action, and not Mia Dillon, but there has been a lot going on in my life of late. Too many personal issues going on for my liking. I want to say thanks to Emily for pointing out the Keir Dullea Wikia has been officially spammed. I’m investigating how to keep the site spam free. Sorry for that guys. I also know the header looks a little wonky. For some reason when I add audio files the thumbnailer in the header that displays the last uploads to the gallery isn’t displaying the MP3 icon in the box. I’m trying to find out why. I’ll have that remedied soon. I’m also trying to get some of the things Frank and Emily have provided me, but the process is taking longer than I’d hoped, the aforementioned personal issues plus I’m trying to get going on my novel OUBLIETTE in which I’ve created a character that is to be a composite of Keir. Emily has provided some of Keir’s films for screencapping but the issue is the caps will end up a little on the small size and I’m trying to find out how to convert the films into a Bluray format or at least an HD version that will result in larger caps but not blow the frames all out of proportion. I’ve been struggling with this since I began capping Keir’s film DAVID AND LISA. Most of the videos I have won’t allow for resizing of the images due to the frame sizes, thusly blowing the pixels out so the images are severely distorted. The only way to fix this is to have a frame size in the same size as I want the screencaps. This process takes a little time to complete. So please be patient. I’m hoping to have some other things of Keir’s up tonight so I can fix the last uploads box in the header. Thanks for understanding.

Keir To Attend Special Screening Of “David & Lisa”
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

Just got a news alert about this:

David & Lisa, an unusual love story, will be screened at The Ridgefield Playhouse

A stark and spare look at the world of the mentally disturbed, David & Lisa was one of the beacons of the American independent film movement in the early 1960s and was nominated for an Academy Award in 1963. Shot in black + white, it is a poignant story about two adolescents who connect in a home for emotionally disturbed youngsters. The screening of David & Lisa at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, July 6, at 7:30 p.m. is a presentation of The Ridgefield Playhouse Film Society Lost & Found Film Series. Actor Keir Dullea will be on hand for a Q&A with hosts Ira Joe Fisher and Morton Dean, Emmy Award-winning television journalists. This event is sponsored by Cohen and Wolf, P.C., HB Group, The Ridgefield Press and Sony XDCAM HC.

Directed by Frank Perry and written by his wife Eleanor Perry, the groundbreaking independent film David & Lisa earned each of them Academy Award nominations for “Best Director” and “Best Adapted Screenplay”. In 1962, David & Lisa was nominated for the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival where it won the Opera Prima award for “Best New Work.” For his sensitive portrayal in David & Lisa, Keir Dullea received a Golden Globe Award and the San Francisco International Film Festival’s Golden Gate Award for “Best Actor“.

Actor Keir Dullea plays the role of David who is placed in the home by his mother because of his constant fear of being touched. While in the company of others who have mental and emotional problems, David begins to understand his own psychosis and soon develops a relationship with Lisa (played by Janet Margolin), a 15-year old girl suffering from schizophrenia, who develops a strange attraction to David.

Known primarily as a stage actor, Keir Dullea made a critically acclaimed film debut in 1961’sThe Hoodlum Priest, playing a born-to-hang juvenile delinquent. After working on the original 1964 version of The Thin Red Line, Dullea starred with Laurence Olivier in Otto Preminger’s Bunny Lake Is Missing in 1965. Based solely on Dullea’s work in these four films, including David & Lisa, Stanley Kubrick cast him in the lead role of David Bowman, the astronaut in 2001: A Space Odyssey, the seminal 1968 classic science fiction film. In 1984, Keir Dullea repeated his award-winning role in director Peter Hyams’ 2010: The Year We Make Contact, the sequel to Kubrick’s epic 2001: A Space Odyssey.

For reserved seating, ($10 adults, $7.50 seniors, $5 students), call or visit the box office at (203) 438-5795, or go to The Ridgefield Playhouse is a not-for-profit performing arts center located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street, Ridgefield, CT.
