Rosemary’s Baby Turns 40

As part of their tribute to producer Rober Evans, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will presents a 40th anniversary screening of ROSEMARY’S BABY.

The film was actually produced by William Castle, with Roman Polanski writing and directing, but according to the AMPAS website, Evans brought the property to Paramount and “oversaw” its production.

There will be a discussion panel featuring a rather odd assortment of guests. Besides Robert Evans, there will also be Peter Bart (former Paramount producer and editor of Variety), Brett Ratner (director of summer popcorn movies), and Slash (of Guns and Roses fame). What they could have to say to each other is hard to imagine.

If you are not so fortunate as to live in Los Angeles, the film will also screen on June 6 and 7 in San Francisco, as part of the Landmark After Dark festival. More info here.

NOTE: The film got a mention in our list of the Top 20 Chick Flick Horror Movies.
