Ingram stopped making films when sound came in. Francis , Rossellini asked, what would a modern-day saint be like? I think they based it on Simone Weil, and Ingrid Bergman played the part. The character tries everything, because she has a tragedy in her family that really changes her, so she tries politics and even working in a factory, and in the end it has a very moving resolution.
And when Faces showed at the New York Film Festival, it absolutely trumped everything that was shown at the time. Cassavetes is the person who ultimately exemplifies independence in film. And it failed miserably at the box office. The Flowers of St. Rossellini used real monks for this movie.
She plays a bad-ass cattle rancher with a soft spot for a local lawman.
The Rossellini Family Series
He was the first one to go there after the war, to say we all have to live together. And he felt cinema was the tool that could do this, that could inform people. Can you imagine? Gilda at age We went to the movies. And now audiences accepted it, and went along with it, and every director of photography and now every director of photography of the past 40 years owes him the greatest debt, for changing the style completely—until now, of course, with the advent of digital.
Gun Crazy: A romantic example of film noir, this one features a gun-toting husband and a sharpshooting wife. Health: This Altman movie came out at the same time as King of Comedy. They were both flops, and we were both out.

The age of the director was over. House of Wax: This was the first 3-D movie produced by a major American studio. It starred Vincent Price as a wax sculptor whose sourcing was, shall we say, unusual. No words. The Hustler: Scorsese liked the Paul Newman character Eddie Felson in this movie so much that when Newman came calling about a possible update of the movie, he agreed to direct The Color of Money. Melies, a French director of silent films, is at the center of the plot of Hugo. And I discovered it was a masterpiece! Jason and the Argonauts: As part of his film education of his daughter, Scorsese screened a bunch of Ray Harryhausen classics, including this one.
Instead he made these intimate stories that had a great deal to do with a certain intellectual mysticism, a sense of cultural power. In Viaggio [ Viaggio in Italia is the Italian title], for example, the English couple played by George Sanders and Ingrid Bergman are traveling in Naples on vacation while marriage is falling apart, but the land around them—the people the museums, and especially their visit to Pompeii, these thousands of years of culture around them—work on them like a modern miracle. The film is basically two people in a car, and that became the entire New Wave.
If you could hang on with Altman, you were going to go on one of the great rides of your lives. Kiss Me Deadly : A great example of the noir genre that so inspired Scorsese. This one stars Ralph Meeker as detective Mike Hammer. And then he made up this story, taking elements of Moby Dick , where he talks about the sharks, and the whole mirror sequence in that picture is unsurpassed. Visconti went a different way from Rossellini.
He made this movie, which is one of the greatest films ever made. He shot it in 27 days. And Rossellini is the key to everything.

She is so huggable in this movie, so funny, so sweet, that she brings sunshine into scenes that might otherwise seem contrived. She has one moment almost impossible to describe, when she and Danson have agreed to meet "accidentally" at a restaurant by bringing their families there. And as she looks up and is "surprised" to see Danson there, her joy and embarrassment and good humor all bubble up at once, and she almost breaks out laughing as she tries to go through with the charade.
Rossellini has the role in "Cousins" that was played by Marie-Christine Barrault in "Cousin, Cousine," the warmhearted French comedy that inspired this Hollywood remake. Both actresses share some of the same qualities: sunny good humor and instinctive warmth in a merry, zaftig package. And they both have particularly winning smiles. Rossellini has been in only six or seven movies, and the one that made the biggest impression the gothic comedy " Blue Velvet " was scarcely designed to bring out her warmth.
But "Cousins" could make her into a real movie star; she has the kind of qualities that audiences really respond to. Danson is less perfectly cast as her lover. This is his most believable and likable role, and yet there is a certain reserve about him that never quite seems to lift, and maybe Petersen, who plays the other man, would have seemed warmer.
Still, the material is so strong that we're inclined to believe that if Rossellini likes him, she must know what she's doing. Petersen is very good as the womanizing salesman, tormented by guilt but a sinner anyway. Young, as Danson's wife, is brittle and distant; we never really get to know her.
