'Dukes' gets governor's nod; McCarthy film unspools

HOLLYWOOD — There was a time when the arrival of a California governor at a movie premiere was, to say the least, not a crucial moment for the photogs. But gone are the days of Deukmejian, Wilson and Gray.

Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s attendance at Monday’s DGA special screening of his friend Robert Davi‘s “The Dukes” set the cameras flashing.

The pair co-starred in 1986 crime-thriller “Raw Deal.”

“Robert was always interested in the business of making a movie, not just the acting,” said the governor, who hosted the screening. “For him to have the guts to raise the money, do the work and go shoot it, I find that admirable.”

Men of “Cinema”

Variety chief critic Todd McCarthy chatted with French cinephile Pierre Rissient, the subject of McCarthy’s docu “Man of Cinema: Pierre Rissient”, at the film’s bow Tuesday at the Landmark in L.A.

Also onhand was Variety’s editor-in-chief Peter Bart.
