"James Ellroy Presents: Elizabeth," at LA Police Museum
"When Ellroy, a long time supporter of the LAPD, proposed the museum open up and exhibit the LAPD's deep 'Black Dahlia' file, the department agreed to share case materials never before seen in public, hoping to shed light on the real nature of the decades-long investigation.
'There's nothing gruesome. It's not a ghoul show,' said Glynn Martin, the museum's executive director. 'We want to restore integrity to a record that has drifted off track.'
The exhibit, 'James Ellroy Presents: Elizabeth -- LAPD's 65-year crusade to capture Beth Short's killer,' opens Friday with a sold-out evening of conversation and hors d'oeuvres with Ellroy himself, who will take ticketed guests for a personal tour of the exhibition."
