Classic Links

I thought I’d heard all I cared to about Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961), but this review presents an interesting point of view-- The Guardian

A Psycho-era Hitchcock biopic is in the works.-- Cinematical

R.I.P. silent movie actress Eva von Berne, 100—at least that may be the case. Her death was originally reported in 1930, which definitely wasn’t true. Interesting story.-- Alt Film Guide

A Bob Fosse biopic? Didn’t he already kind of do that himself? I feel like All That Jazz (1979) told me all I need to know about the man. I’m sure the filmmakers are aware of this challenge-- /Film


  1. I really enjoyed the article about Audrey (and the comments below), thanks for sharing it, KC.

  2. I thought the same thing about Fosse. Once you hear it from the horse's mouth, so to speak, the rest tends to be just fan fiction.

  3. Hi Clara--wasn't that an interesting take on that movie? I feel like the classics come alive when I get a new point of view like that.

    I agree Java--I'd love to hear more about Fosse, but he was so refreshingly blunt and humorous about who he was in in All That Jazz that I'd be surprised to see a more interesting version. I'm up for being surprised though.
