Mystery of "The Black Dahlia" Solved
"The Black Dahlia" hasn't even hit theaters yet, but a sequel of sorts is in the works. A sequel to a decades old noir-ish tale? Actually, an LA homicide detective many years after the crime occurred became obsessed with case, explored its many angles and decided that the killer was...his father. James Ellroy (the author of the novel "The Black Dahlia") gave the author's analysis his blessing. Now the guy's tale of fingering his dad is becoming a movie too. If either of them are half as good as "LA Confidential," we'll be lucky indeed.
