Bette Davis, all macabre, for “Dead Ringer” (1964)

Perhaps one of Bette Davis‘ lesser known works is “Dead Ringer”(not to be confused with Dead RingerS by David Cronenberg). This film is directed by Paul Henreid and dates back to 1964. It’s a little gem worthy of viewing, in which Davis plays both a wealthy woman AND her twin sister who murders her as the noir thriller unravels alongside Karl Malden. Check out this beautiful still shot from the film! Unknown photographer.

This is a portrait of director Sergei M. Eisenstein (1898 – 1948 ) by Agustin Jimenez (1901-1974).

The director is holding up a sugar skull. It was taken while Eisenstein was filming his unfinished masterpiece Que Viva México, which would have outlined Mexican culture and politics from pre-conquest civilisation to the Mexican revolution.
