Directed by Max Ophüls

Written by Arthur Laurents

USA, 1949

Max Ophüls’ third feature in America, Caught, from 1949, is an evocative amalgam of a domesticated melodramatic tragedy and a dynamic film noir sensibility. The picture stars Barbara Bel Geddes as Leonora Eames, a studious adherent to charm school principles who dreams of becoming a glamorous model, or at least marrying a young, handsome millionaire. She gets the latter when she meets Smith Ohlrig (Robert Ryan), a wealthy “international something” who gives her the superficial materials she desires but little else. Their marriage is an arduous sham. He works late hours on unclear projects while she is left to dwell uselessly in their extravagant mansion. He’s cruel to her and careless. A way out of the stifling relationship comes in the form of a job as a doctor’s receptionist. Leonora leaves Ohlrig and moves into Manhattan, where she eventually »

Interview with Annette Bening, Arie Posin, Ed Harris and Annette Insdorf about The Face Of Love

The Face Of Love is the story of a man and his double and questions what it is that we love in another's face. Annette Bening plays Nicki, a woman whose job it is to stage houses in Los Angeles so that they seem lived in for prospective buyers. Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo casts long shadows over the scenery and director Arie Posin, with deft strokes, uses them as mirror and deceit.
