If you haven’t read My Family and Other Animals, do so – preferably with a child

It’s great that ITV is showing The Durrells so a new generation can meet this family of talented oddballs but read the book before you watch it

Growing up in America, my only association with the Durrell family involved Lawrence and a beautiful set of The Alexandria Quartet on my parents’ bookshelves. In the 1960s, when my family moved in moderately intellectual Boston circles, I spent a bookish childhood nosing into novels I couldn’t possibly understand.

I picked up Justine when I was 12, about the time the Anouk Aimée/Dirk Bogarde film came out. Book and film both promised sexual enchantment, risque pleasures, the sultry mysteries of Cairo. So I dived in, expecting enlightenment, titillation, adult pleasures – all of which failed to materialise. I remember the frustration of trying to make sense of Durrell’s adult prose. Worse, this sexually progressive (ie, obscene) novel seemed to have no sex scenes in it. »

Classic French Films Continue to Influence Popular Fashion

2 March 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“The film fashions of today are your fashions of tomorrow.” That prediction came courtesy of Elsa Schiaparelli, whose rival, Coco Chanel, was one of the first designers to capitalize on the image-making potential of the silver screen when she began designing costumes for Hollywood stars in 1931 at the request of MGM boss Samuel Goldwyn.

Few epochs have informed fashion more than France’s New Wave Cinema of the 1960s and ’70s, which spawned such enduring icons as Catherine Deneuve, Brigitte Bardot, Jean Seberg, Romy Schneider, Jeanne Moreau and Anouk Aimee.

“At that time — Nouvelle Vague (New Wave) — cinema was really considered an art,” says Camille Seydoux, sister and stylist to thesp Lea Seydoux. “Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol, all those directors were really inspired by fashion. When you see ‘Belle de Jour,’ you can see that fashion is a really important aspect of the movie,” says Seydoux of Luis Bunuel’s masterpiece. »

From the Terrace

19 January 2016 9:24 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This is as sexy as Hollywood pix got in 1960. John O'Hara's novel about class snobbery and the drive for success posits Paul Newman as a moody go-getter. In glossy soap opera fashion, his silver spoon-fed bride Joanne Woodward morphs into an unfaithful monster. Some adulterous relationships are excused and others not in this glossy, morally rigged melodrama. In other words, it's prime entertainment material. From the Terrace Blu-ray Twilight Time Limited Edition 1960 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 144 min. / Ship Date January 19, 2016 / available through Twilight Time Movies / 29.95 Starring Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Myrna Loy, Ina Balin, Leon Ames, Elizabeth Allen, Barbara Eden, George Grizzard, Patrick O'Neal, Felix Aylmer. Cinematography Leo Tover Art Direction Maurice Ransford, Howard Richmond, Lyle R. Wheeler Film Editor Dorothy Spencer Original Music Elmer Bernstein Written by Ernest Lehman from the novel by John O'Hara Produced and directed by Mark Robson
