Parallel Stories Lecture: Geoff Dyer

Friday, May 31, 2019, 12:30 AM - 2:00 AM

Geoff Dyer’s earlier book on film, "Zona," was about Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker, so it was perhaps inevitable that he should next devote his unique critical and stylistic energies to Brian G. Hutton’s "Where Eagles Dare"—a thrilling 1968 Alpine adventure starring a magnificent, bleary-eyed Richard Burton and a dynamically lethargic Clint Eastwood. "Broadsword Calling Danny Boy" is Dyer’s hilarious tribute to a film that he has loved since childhood, including a scene-by-scene analysis that takes the reader from its snowy, Teutonic opening credits to its vertigo-inducing climax. In this special 50th-anniversary celebration of the movie, Dyer explains why it is indelibly imprinted on his consciousness and that of almost all British males of a certain age. This event includes film clips and, if watches can be synchronized correctly, perfectly matched readings from the book.
