Cph Pix will give William Friedkin a unique retrospective tribute on April 3, when Tangerine Dream will perform their score from 1977’s Sorcerer live at Tivoli’s Concert Hall in Copehnagen.

It marks the first time the influential band has played the score live, and the concert will also include 30 minutes of music that wasn’t included in the finished film. Tangerine Dream has never performed before in Scandinavia.

Friedkin’s 12-film retrospective at Cph Pix will also include The Exorcist, Cruising, The French Connection, To Life and Die In La, The Birthday Party, The People Vs. Paul Crump and The Night They Raided Minskys.

The restored Sorcerer premiered in Venice.

Cph Pix runs April 3-16 and will screen 150 features. »

Ten Miscastings That Worked – or Nearly Worked!

Miscasting in films has always been a problem. A producer hires an actor thinking that he or she is perfect for a movie role only to find the opposite is true. Other times a star is hired for his box office draw but ruins an otherwise good movie because he looks completely out of place.

There have been many humdinger miscastings. You only have to laugh at John Wayne’s Genghis Khan (with Mongol moustache and gun-belt) in The Conqueror (1956), giggle at Marlon Brando’s woeful upper class twang as Fletcher Christian in Mutiny on the Bounty (1962) and cringe at Dick Van Dyke’s misbegotten cockney accent in Mary Poppins (1964). But as hilarious as these miscastings are, producers at the time didn’t think the same way, until after the event. At least they add a bit of camp value to a mediocre or downright awful movie.
