James Franco attends the Frameline 34 Film Festival

HollywoodNews.com: Actor Vincent De Paul, who starred in many independent films and played various roles in several blockbusters including “Poseidon,” “Hitch,” and “Hairspray,” arrived at Frameline 34, San Francisco’s annual international LGBT film festival, to support the Castro Theater’s packed house screening of the comedy “Baby Jane?” Also in attendance were his co-stars Matthew Martin, J. Conrad Frank, Heklina, Mike Finn, Ethel Merman, Ron Herman Symansky, Drew Todd, Sandy Schlechter, and Jeff Dylan Graham.

Directed by the talented Billy Clift, the drag-studded recreation of the 1962 black-and-white classic “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” drops us back into the wacky depths of sisterly rivalry. De Paul plays the well groomed MAD MEN-esque Detective Bill Kovacks who investigates the strange, yet amusing, happenings at the home where former child star Baby Jane Hudson, who was overshadowed by her more famous sister Blanche, now holds the frail wheelchair-bound star prisoner following a mysterious automobile accident.


“I very much enjoyed working with Billy Clift and an amazing cast,” De Paul said. “Clift has such a vision in recreating meticulously the essence of the original “Baby Jane” while creating a current spin to the story. The spirit of independent filmmakers are when actors, directors, and screenwriters come together to collaborate on a project for the sheer purpose of creating poignant, thought provoking, and art worthy features. Also we all work together because we so believe in more than the blockbuster commercial products, but our individual contributions to film world.”

Also among the notable films at FRAMELINE 34 in San Francisco was Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s “HOWL” starring James Franco who played 1950’s poet/author/revolutionist Alan Ginsberg. Both films were shot in an artistic film noir format using black and white footage.

“While at the festival, it was also very nice to see again fellow actor James Franco and his work in the period piece narrative ‘HOWL,'” said De Paul. “His cadence and delivery of the poem was outstanding and he embraced the role of Ginsberg with such honesty. I am very pleased that audiences are discovering these artistically historical films.”
