burt & gina

 Posted by Picasa


camera work by robert krasker, directed by carol reed, worked together on the third man

starring burt lancaster, gina lollobrigida, tony curtis, and a beautiful circus

pure red-in-the-tooth melodrama, but i gaped at the magnificent camera work

exemplary story-telling and the dialogue is 110% distilled emotional blackmail

if you love beauty, and circuses, and beginners-level mind-games, it really is great fun !
