License to Kill, Mumford, MallRats, Devil's Rejects had a great time meeting
fans and signing autographs at our store Friday, June 21st.
Barnes demonstrated her depth of talent by acting in every genre from
comedy to drama on the big and small screen. Appearing in Rob Zombieâs
highly anticipated sequel to House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil's
Rejects. Critics wrote, ăPeople will be shocked by the amazing
performance given by Priscilla Barnes's in The Devil's Rejects,ä a
testament to her ability as a talented actress and her performance will
resonate in the minds of viewers for years to come. Rumor has it that
when Rob Zombie saw Priscilla Barnesâs audition tape; he commented ăI
want her in this movie ö even if I have to fire someone·ä Little did
she realize that in a few weeks she would be shooting the infamous
scene just a few blocks from where she grew up.

Smith. Barnes recently finished filming Tom 51 with Michael Rapaport and fellow Devil's Rejects co-star Geoffrey Lewis. She
currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband Ted Monte.
WAREHOUSE SALE / NOVEMBER
PAM GRIER IN-STORE APPEARANCE A HIT!
Grier was a terrific first guest at our Reel Art Collectibles retail
store. There were people crowding to see her for the full 2 hours of
the event, and we had a wonderful time..
Grier became famous in the early 1970s, after starring in a string of
successful women in prison and blaxploitation films such as 1974's Foxy
Brown. Her career was revitalized in 1997 after her appearance in
Quentin Tarantino's film Jackie Brown. She received a Golden Globe
nomination for Best Actress. She has also been nominated for a SAG as
well as a Satellite Award for her performance in the iconic film Jackie
Brown. She received an Emmy Award nomination for her work in an
Animated Program Happily Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child.
Rotten Tomatoes has ranked her as the second Greatest Female Action
Heroine in film history. Director Quentin Tarantino remarked that she
may have been cinema's first female action star.
Grier came to Reel Art through a special arrangement with the HOLLYWOOD
SHOW autograph and collectible show where she was appearing. They have
2 shows a year at the Hilton Rosemont / Chicago O'Hare Airport Hotel,
5500 North River Road, Rosemont IL 60018. For more info: http://www.hollywoodshow.com/mainchicago.php
