“Veronica Cartwright, who played Lambert in Alien (1979), is scheduled to appear at the 2014 Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention, Hunt Valley, Md., at the Hunt Valley Wyndham Hotel, Sept. 18-20. There is supposed to be a screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, one of the other great films in which Cartwright was featured. More info http://midatlanticnostalgiaconvention.com” read more
