Chris Knight Val Kilmer Will Receive A Dallas Star Award on November 16
The Dallas Film Society has announced that it will present Val Kilmer, who played Chris Knight in Real Genius , with a Dallas Star Award during its fall fundraising event, The Art of Film , on November 16. It's slated as a night of intimate conversation and dinner, so you should ask him how they pulled off that popcorn gag and learn the exact coordinates of where Lazlo is currently residing.
The Juilliard drama program alum reached super stardom through his portrayal of Jim Morrison in The Doors, Doc Holliday in Tombstone and the Caped Crusader in Batman Forever, but for many his era of most heightened creativity spanned '84 and '85 when he starred in Top Secret! and Real Genius and again in '88 with Willow.
The Dallas Film Society will screen a retrospective of two Kilmer classics the following day, November 17, which Art of Film ticket holders may attend for free. Single passes for the event begin at $500 dollars. Call 214-720-0555 or visit dallasfilm.org.
