Short Experimental Film: Charade

Hollywood is a place where one can completely reinvent oneself for fame and fortune. Experimental filmmaker Salise Hughes plays with the entire notion of shifting one’s identity with another entry in her “erased film” entries: Her brilliant reworking of the classic screwball mystery romance Charade.

Little of the original film exists in Hughes’s piece, but she focuses her attention squarely on lead actor Cary Grant.

New on Video: ‘Sabrina’

Directed by Billy Wilder

USA, 1954

The Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, and The African Queen were recently rereleased and assembled for the Best of Bogart Collection, and now, Sabrina, one of the legendary star’s final films, has received its first American appearance on the format. Perhaps more importantly, if total number of titles available on Blu-ray is the basis for judgment, Sabrina also marks one of disappointingly few Billy Wilder titles available in the remastered form. That the film also stars the radiant Audrey Hepburn and the remarkably versatile William Holden confirms that the release is worth commending.

From about 1944, with Double Indemnity, to Irma la Douce in 1963, Wilder had an astonishing run in Hollywood, and Sabrina came roughly in the middle of that period. »
