Trailers from Hell: Larry Karaszewski on Jacques Demy's Ode to 1968 Los Angeles, 'Model Shop'

To Live and Shake and Die in LA! kicks off this week at Trailers from Hell, with screenwriter Larry Karaszewski introducing Jacques Demy’s first American production, “Model Shop.”

Shot a year after his homage to Hollywood musicals, “The Young Girls of
Rochefort,” “Model Shop” stars Gary Lockwood, just coming off of 2001: A Space Odyssey. But
the real star of Model Shop is LA itself; the film is a veritable time capsule
of the city in the late sixties (Demy had wanted to title the film “Los
Angeles-1968″). As Lockwood’s star-crossed lover, Anouk Aimée reprises her
title role from Demy’s bittersweet romance, 1961′s Lola.
