My highlight: Mad Men by Bee Wilson

16 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Eames chairs and hour-glass dresses are a visual treat, but it’s really all about Jon Hamm’s performance as a man sickened by his womanising and in thrall to his own pretty lies

Many complained that Mad Men, which concludes this week, was style over substance: all those Eames chairs and hour-glass dresses. The writer Daniel Mendelsohn dismissed it as nothing but “a soap opera decked out in high-end clothes”. Even if this were true – and it’s not – the visuals alone were reason enough to watch. Over seven seasons, designer Janie Bryant proved herself the greatest screen costumier since Edith Head. The outfits were perfectly matched both to period and character, whether it was Joan sashaying in pneumatic-green satin, or Pete’s ever-changing but never-dignified hairstyles and lapels.

But this show isn’t really about the clothes. Nor is it, as some have said, just an exercise »

Making magic by Anne-Katrin Titze

CinéSalon Haute Couture on Film opening night - Stanley Donen's Funny Face starring Audrey Hepburn in Givenchy, Fred Astaire and Kay Thompson.

Delphine [Selles-Alvarez] has chosen the perfect movie to open the Haute Couture on Film series. Stanley Donen, who previously co-directed On The Town and Singin' In The Rain, both with Gene Kelly, is a specialist in connecting painted picture book backgrounds, still objects, colours, patterns, studio sets or actual city streets and making them come alive more vividly than any realism could accomplish. The power of fashion as moving art is a part of it. You remember what people are wearing in a Donen film.

Embryo Concepts - Marion (Dovima) with Jo Stockton (Audrey Hepburn) as "atmosphere"

Hubert de Givenchy had been contacted by a Miss Hepburn to make a wardrobe for Billy Wilder's Sabrina (1954) and had initially thought the Miss Hepburn in question was Katharine, not Audrey. »

New on Video: ‘A Hole in the Head’

2 February 2015 7:21 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A Hole in the Head

Written by Arnold Schulman

Directed by Frank Capra

USA, 1959

As the opening credits soar across the sky, shown as flapping aerial announcements pulled along by the Goodyear blimp, the talent behind A Hole in the Head is clear. The major players in this Frank Capra film include Frank Sinatra, Edward G. Robinson, Eleanor Parker, Carolyn Jones, Thelma Ritter, and Keenan Wynn. Behind the scenes, shown in a more typical credit scrawl, there is renowned cinematographer William H. Daniels and the equally legendary costumer designer Edith Head. To say A Hole in the Head has much in its favor is quite the understatement. Yet while it may not live up to the expectations one associates with such individuals, the picture is nonetheless thoroughly enjoyable, even if it feels something like an effortless throwaway from these key contributors.

Written by Arnold Schulman, based on his own play, »
