Favorite Photo of the Week #3

Alla Nazimova costumed for the 1921 film Camille.  The settings were designed by Natacha Rambova and the co-star was Rudolph Valentino.  In this portrait the photographer is Arthur Rice, who was enormousely talented and died far too young in 1923.

There is nothing in the world like silent era glamor photographer which is why I am very much looking forward to David S. Shields' forthoming book "Still: American Silent Motion Picture Photography." publishing June 14th.  Amazon linkage for the book here to pre-order

RIP Roger Ebert

This is how I first came to know of Roger Ebert, film critic, writer par excellance and incredible human being, Sneak Previews circa 1978 on my local PBS station.  How would I know then it would be the begining of a long journey agreeing, disagreeing and reading some of the most acid, wicked, beautifully crafted, laudatory, personal and wonderful prose ever dedicated to the art of cinema. 

Rest in peace Roger Ebert.  You left us far too soon, you left us with so many wonderful books, articles, thoughts for which I thank you.  You were a brave soul, a wonderful writer, a terrific observer of life and the cinema.  You appreciated film and wrote so eloquently about a subject I love.  I'll had so hoped we'd have you around for a little while longer.  Thanks for everything and say hi to Gene.
