Movies last week

a good variety last week:

Film Noir series from George Eastman House Dryden: A Double Life. This movies is about an actor who becomes so involved with his role that he goes crazy and cannot always separate his work from his life. Not the first movie or story to deal with this theme. I liked it, though of course to see white actors put on blackface for Othello is at best curious and worrisome for us in this day and age. In the 1940s it was normal course of theater.

Netflix / DVD: To Kill a Mockingbird, Young Victoria, OSS 117
