|I ask you...who can be more Fassbinderian than Fassbinder himself? Guesses for last week's quiz were all over the map, but a select few of you were able to recognize Hanna Schygulla from The Marriage of Maria Braun. For those who asked about the alt-text clue -- Mrs. Braun (Brown) has got a lovely daughter, or at least so sayeth Peter Noone from that twee 60s pop song by Herman's Hermits. Sorry.|
Mid-way into week two of NYFF press screenings, and at the moment Stellet Licht is easily the best film I've seen by far, with Redacted holding the honor as the worst. On Tuesday afternoon I had the opportunity to see the restored print of Leave Her to Heaven, a film I'd never seen on the big screen. Wow. Just....wow. And you know what? I realized for the first time that Jeanne Crain is every bit as beautiful as Gene Tierney.
Well here we are at the end of Round 13. My, how times does fly. With Leave Her to Heaven still on the brain, I'll close out the round with another Gene Tierney film, but I warn you...this is a tough one. While the actors pictured might not ring a bell, take a close look at the portrait on the wall. Seem familiar? Name the film. Be sure to check back next week for the winners. Good luck!
