Another unfinished Kenneth Anger work, 8 August 2008
Author: Wayne Malin (wwaayynnee51@hotmail.com) from United States

This is a small 6 minute fragment of what was supposed to title "Puce Women". It was to be about the types of Hollywood actresses from the 1920s.

It begins with a series of beautiful, colorful gowns being shoved at the camera. They were actual gowns worn by 1920s actresses. It shows a woman (Yvonne Marquis) looking for a gown to go out in. She finally finds one that is puce-colored (hence the title). Then we have her lying on a couch which moves around. Next we see her walking four dogs in the puce gown.

There's no real point or story but it IS beautiful to watch and the gowns especially will be a treat to see in color for any fan of old Hollywood movies. It's an interesting short for fans of old Hollywood movies. I give it a 7.
