Now, back to the Dallas International Film Festival's initial list of offerings, which includes an Indonesian actioner called Blood of Eagles. Look at the names of the co-directors: Yadi Sugandi and Conor Allyn. "Allyn"? As in ... Rob Allyn of Allyn Media? Yup -- Conor's his son, a Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas grad. And Rob co-wrote the movie, matter of fact, his second credited screenplay. I was reminded of this fact this morning, by one of Allyn's colleagues, who confirms "this is his full-time gig now" and only getting fullerer.
