In Next BOOBS & BLOOD: Brian De Palma’s Assistant Reveals All About Making DRESSED TO KILL

Sam Irvin [Featured Image with Angie Dickenson], director of Elvira’s Haunted Hills, co-executive producer of Gods and Monsters, and former personal assistant to Brian De Palma, celebrates the 40th Anniversary of De Palma’s Dressed to Kill, with the publication of his personal experiences during the making of this classic horror-thriller, starring Michael Caine, Angie Dickinson, and Nancy Allen.

Synopsis:
When Liz Blake (Nancy Allen), a prostitute, sees a mysterious woman brutally slay homemaker Kate Miller (Angie Dickinson), she finds herself trapped in a dangerous situation. While the police think Liz is the murderer, the real killer wants to silence the crime’s only witness. Only Kate’s inventor son, Peter (Keith Gordon), believes Liz. Peter and Liz team up to find the real culprit, who has an unexpected means of hiding her identity and an even more surprising motivation to kill.

Having been De Palma’s personal assistant during the late-70s and early-80s, Irvin definitely has a story or two to tell about Hollywood’s last golden age. This special issue of Boobs & Blood magazine is entirely devoted to Irvin’s definitive behind-the-scenes account of Dressed to Kill. In addition to this game-changing fan favorite, Irvin also writes of his time working on other De Palma features such as The Fury, Homes Movies, Blow Out, and several unmade De Palma projects. Packed with photos and artwork (many previously unpublished), the issue comes out just in time for the Holidays.

As Irvin says, “Working intimately with De Palma on Dressed to Kill allowed me to see his unique filmmaking process unfold before my very eyes in real-time. Despite my formal education in cinematic arts, my real film school was the time I spent with De Palma. Every riveting minute of it.”

B&B editor-publisher Miles Flanagan states, “We’re so proud to have Sam donate his services for free as a writer for this very special issue. As someone who was De Palma’s personal assistant, Sam’s insightful account of the making of Dressed to Kill and De Palma’s work during this time is invaluable.”  

Continued Flanagan, “We hope this will be our biggest seller to date and be a big fundraiser for the Keep A Breast Foundation. That would definitely make my Christmas.”

All profits from Boobs & Blood magazine are donated to the Keep A Breast Foundation. So if you buy this, it truly is the gift that keeps on giving.
