Ellroy has the last word

This weekend, The Black Dahlia opens in theaters. Directed by Brian DePalma, the movie is based on the classic James Ellroy novel about the famous unsolved 1947 murder. Ellroy talks to Pasadena Weekly about the case, the murder of his own mother, and his book tour for the movie and novel:
"This is my farewell tour to two things: my mother's death and the Black Dahlia. It's over. After this tour, I will never answer another question about these things. It's an idea whose time has come and gone."
