“HOLLYWOOD & VINE” is the third installment of “The Twisted 50’s: A Trilogy of Exploitation Films”, a mysterious Hollywood noir haunted by the presence of the silent film era. A strange, nameless woman (Asia Walker) dressed all in black with a black veil over her face wakes up from a nightmare in the Los Angeles bungalow of Lula (Mandy Kahlmeier), a struggling blonde actress desperate for fame and fortune. Without a memory of who she is, the “madame X” gets given the name “Scarlett” by Lula and tries to piece together the enigma of her identity. Lula, excited that it is New Year’s Eve 1958, shows off her acting skills by performing a classic line from Gone With the Wind and says she met “Scarlett” at the premiere of the new motion picture starring Cliff Hunter (Tyler Onassis), Hollywood’s biggest male movie star that she is obsessed with, and brought her back home with her. Possessed by strange visions involving an eerie “woman in black”, an Academy Awards ceremony and the iconic Rudolph Valentino, “Scarlett” begins to unravel the banished truths of her existence as the evening moves along, and Lula uncovers that she has some dark secrets of her own… and a motive that unbeknownst to her puts her fate in the palm of someone’s hand. After all, Hollywood is a realm of lost souls cursed by the condemned power of their dreams. “Bless me Father for I have sinned… I have done the Devil’s duty yet again… and am in most need of your blessing.”
