When passion and hatred know no limits, expect no mercy.
Did You Know?
When a leading lady was on director Richard Pearce
and producer D. Constantine Conte
s' casting agenda, Conte thought that for this role, the film needed a totally modern equivalent of a great 1940s star in her most famous role - namely Rita Hayworth
(1946), maybe because the character of Michel Duval does a torrid dance at the Blue Parrot Club in No Mercy
(1986). Conte said: "And Kim Basinger
was the only actress who I felt could generate the kind of excitement that Hayworth did - and who could also meet the other demands of the part. Pearce outlines those demands: "Michel is a wonderful blending of innocence and experience, someone who has never been outside the control of a man, barely able to write her name or make a choice for herself. She is a pure creature of instinct in a world of sexual and emotional violence almost unimaginable to most of us. Kim Basinger
has a kind of feral, intuitive intelligence that was just right for Michel". See more
