[quote=“cyber-lili”]Do watch those movies if you’re interested in horror/fantastic movies like Cat People :
- From Jacques Tourneur : I walked with a zombie ; The Leopard Man ; Night of the Demon. Watch also Out of the Past, this is a film noir, not a horror film though it’s his best movie with Cat People.
- From Robert Wise : The Body Snatcher ; The Haunting
- Gaslight by George Cukor (if you have never seen The Women he directed, you might love it).
- Village of the damned by Wolf Rilla
- Invasion of the Body Snatchers by Don Siegel
Tell me what you’re interested in european cinema if you want any other recommandations.[/quote]
I love Cukor, I love Gaslight!
Angela Lansbury! Ingrid Bergman!
There’s a funny story surroungding Cukor and Bette Davis. As you may or may not know, Cukor used to be a stage director long before he became a respected filmmaker, anyways, Bette was auditioning for a play, and Cukor told Bette she did not have the talent to become a good actress. So Bette went to Universal, where she started her career - and that’s where the whole “Slim Somerville” line arose -
Anyway, my favorite Cukor film is “A Star Is Born” with Judy Garland and james Mason, the best musical for my money. He also directed Katie Hepburn, Joan Crawford, Norma Shearer - he was great. And gay. He was gay. I read that Clark Gable was uncomfortable with him in Gone With The Wind so they brought Victor Fleming. Ha!
You gotta love Gable! :laugh:
