From January 25-27, the Museum of the Moving Image (36-01 35th Avenue in Astoria, Queens) will be presenting a series devoted to singer/songwriter/actor Paul Williams, with the man himself present at all but one of the screenings. Leading off on Friday, Jan. 25 at 7 p.m. is a showing of Brian De Palma’s cult classic Phantom Of The Paradise, in which Williams plays Swan, a Mephistophelean record mogul who betrays songwriter Winslow Leach (William Finley), and becomes the target of the now scarred-and-helmeted tunesmith’s revenge. Williams also wrote the songs for Phantom, which co-stars Suspiria’s Jessica Harper and Gerrit Graham as “Beef.” For more on the Williams series (which also includes the excellent documentary Paul Williams: Still Alive) and ticket information, click on the link above; see Phantom's trailer below and go here to read words from Williams about his coming collaboration with Guillermo del Toro »
