Kim Novak
10 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

Kim Novak- the great star of Vertigo, Bell Book and Candle, Middle Of The Night, Strangers When We Meet, Of Human Bondage, The Mirror Crack'd- and looking beautiful returned to films as star of "The Children" shot in Europe and co starring Oscar Winner Ben Kingsley and featuring a strong supporting cast that includes, Robert Stephens, Joe Don Baker, and two lovely actresses Geraldine Chaplin and in a small cameo Karen Black.

Kim Novak was a fine actress but her films such as Just A Gigolo and Liebestram in the latter part of her career were not widely distributed, thus few saw this fine actress at work in her more recent films. I do not know if this film is even out on DVD. Kim Novak delivers one speech in The Children particular powerfully and shows the range of a fine actress whose work is now being re discovered.
