Did You Know?
[on Joseph Losey
] Joe Losey's very good. The Servant
(1963) is very effective, very well done--for its subject, extraordinarily well-done--and it broke new ground and many new barriers in terms of morals and so on. But it left you small and mean and petty; it didn't release you from anything; it drove home the oppression and weight of its theme rather than bursting you out of it.
In the late 1930s Mann, who was a stage director, was hired by David O. Selznick
, who put him to work as a talent scout and casting director. In that capacity Mann directed screen tests for several of Selznick's films, including Gone with the Wind
(1939) and Rebecca
Liked to experiment with widescreen "scope" aspect ratios by placing major action on both the far left and right edges of the frame, often in the same shot.
