Lesley Ann Warren was big hit at LA LGBT Center’s screening of ‘Clue’ at Hollywood Forever Cemetery
Some people came dressed as Mrs. Peacock and Mrs. White but the real Miss Scarlett—Lesley Ann Warren—was actually in attendance.
These fictional murder suspects were among the more than 2,000 people who filled the Fairbanks Lawn, an open grassy field inside the iconic Hollywood Forever Cemetery, on Friday, August 11, for the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s fun-filled outdoor screening of the 1985 cult classic Clue.
Before the screening of the murder comedy began, the crowd was treated to an appearance by Warren who shared some of her memories from the making of the movie which co-starred Tim Curry, Martin Mull, Eileen Brennan, Madeline Kahn, and Christopher Lloyd.
“When the film first came out people didn’t know what to make of it. But since then there’s been a wave of adoration for these characters. It’s amazing. I can go to a restaurant anywhere in the country and some young person will walk up to me and start reciting lines from the movie.”
