Brigitte Bardot, Kirk Douglas, Cannes (1953)

Slightly less violent than “A Serbian Film” (yesterday’s post) are these gorgeous photos of Brigitte Bardot & Kirk Douglas. Apparently, they met up in Cannes in 1953, where these photos were shot.

During that year, they both starred in a film called “Un acte d’Amour”/“Act of Love” (1953, directed by Anatole Litvak). Douglas had the starring role of Robert Teller, a soldier looking to change his life after the liberation of Paris. Bardot had the small role of Mimi.

These photos are a generous contribution of Mr. Jose Salvador Gallegos. Many thanks to him!

Don’t answer that phone !!

A brilliant Anatol Litvak film- noir, made in 1948, starring Barbara Stanwyck & Burt Lancaster, set in Manhattan:
“SORRY, WRONG NUMBER”.

The pieces of the story are beautifully put together by other people’s reconstruction & reportage over the phone.
The spoiled character of Stanwyck finds herself randomly at the center of a conspiracy connected together by a very ominous object, a phone. This depiction of the object later made it through American Slasher films like the “Scream” series.
