So much Wonder in one year at the movies 2017 had.... Wonderstruck is now on Amazon Prime streaming, so I should get around to it. Like Bogie, I did see Wonder, which is a lovely family film that is quite thoughtful. And as good as Jacob Tremblay was in the lead, I think that fellow juvenile Noah Jupe managed to steal the whole show.

The important thing here is that you liked Lee Remick's performance in Anatomy of a Murder.  But I have to disagree with your characterization of her role as supporting.  Yes, she is married to supporting star, Ben Gazzara but he spends much of the film incarcerated and out-of-sight.  Remick's character on the other hand is the subject of the investigation and the focus of the film.  Did she, or didn't she?  Thus, IMO she is clearly the lead actress in the film.

Now that I've just rewatched it, I believe it's clear that Remick is supporting.  The movie is 160 minutes long.  The first hour or so introduces the case and the characters.  Much of it is spent switching back and forth between Stewart talking to Remick and Gazzara.  Remick has four major scenes.  First, she talks to Stewart about taking the case.  Then there's her big scene, roughly lasting 0:22-032 where she tells Stewart about her rape.  There another conservation about forty minutes in, then there's a scene about fifty-three minutes in where Stewart meets he at a juke joint and warns her to dress conservatively and not be seen hanging out in such disreputable places.

The next hour consists of the trial, which is dominated by Stewart, Walsh and increasingly George C. Scott.  Gazarra and Remick are present in the court.  Remick whispers something to Stewart (1:13), and there's another scene once a witness mentions that Gazzara asked Remick to take an oath on her rosary (1:38).  but basically she doesn't do anything for an hour, before her big testimony scene (1:58-2:13).  Before and after that Gazzara testifies, the second time rebutting the jailbird witness.  We see Remick again briefly before the verdict is heard.

Screen time is not the only determining factor.  In my view she is the leading actress.  Of the actresses she is the lead.  No one else is.  But I tip my hat to your determination to voice your own opinion.

For years I had thought the release date of Orson Welles' The Tragedy of Othello: the Moor of Venice was 1952.  It premiered at Cannes that year.  Then the imdb announced that it had 4 screenings in Italy in 1951.  Wellesnet has a review of the October 2017 Criterion release of Othello which includes a 1952 version and a 1955 version.  It explains that the 1951 version was Italian dubbed which appears to be lost (to the marketplace).  This almost sounds like a work-in-progress cut and almost certainly does not contain ALL of the original performances.  For my purposes I think I will return to the 1952 release date.  It was my Best Picture of the Year.

Requiem for 1992 release of Orson Welles’ ‘Othello’

October 31, 2017 

Othello-1992.jpgBy RAY KELLY

The Criterion Collection's recent release of Othello on Blu-ray and DVD showcases two versions of Orson Welles' Shakespearean adaptation: His 1952 European cut and the slightly shorter edit he prepared for the United Artists release in the U.S. and Britain in 1955.

Lost to the mass market is the earliest known version, an Italian-dubbed Othello, which premiered at Barberini Cinema in Rome on November 29, 1951; and the 1992 release created by Michael Dawson with the backing of Beatrice Welles and Julian Schlossberg's Castle Hill Productions.

Dawson's restoration – which may not be an accurate description of the end result – rankled purists, most notably the Chicago Reader's Jonathan Rosenbaum. The release boasted the creation of a new stereo score and some attempts to force the dubbed audio of the actor's lines to better fit the screen image.

I was fortunate to attend a media screening in New York arranged by Castle Hill in early 1992 and was impressed by the glorious images that unspooled.

Frankly, I was not upset with the newly-created stereo score, though I agree it was unnecessary. (The critically and commercially successful restorations of Touch of Evil in 1998 and Chimes at Midnight in 2015 prove a mono score will not keep audiences away.)

Castle Hill's 1992 release was based on the 1955 U.S. edit of the film, which runs a second shy of 91 minutes. (Welles' earlier European edit ran 93 minutes and 31 seconds.)

Comparing a DVD of  Castle Hill's 1992 release with the new Criterion's issue of the 1955 edit is obviously unfair since there have been technological advances in the past quarter century. (Criterion undertook a 4K scan of a 35mm original camera negative.) For example, minor spots and blemishes visible in the opening minutes of the Castle Hill DVD are not present in the richer Criterion release, though the Castle Hill presentation still holds up very well. It should be noted the audio on the Castle Hill DVD release was tweaked following the theatrical run to correct some errors.

Criterion chose to ignore the 1992 stereo version, created seven years after Welles death, when it put out its two-disc set on October 10.

Since the Castle Hill version is out-of-print domestically, it will eventually be relegated to the dustbins of cinematic history. Criterion and Janus Films have acquired the rights to Othello from Beatrice Welles, who heads up her father's estate. It  is unlikely Criterion will embrace the 1992 reworking.

But the passing of Othello - 1992 should not be ignored. It deserves a round of applause for what it accomplished 25 years ago – sparking renewed interest in Welles post-Citizen Kane work and putting one of his overlooked films back in theaters nationwide.  Othello was lauded in 1992 by mainstream critics, who called the film a masterpiece.

And the Castle Hill release brought Othello back to the Cannes Film Festival in May 1992, 40 years after it won the prestigious Palme d'Or there.

Not too shabby.

Actor



Supporting Actress

Ruth Gordon, Rosemary's Baby
Vera Galatikova, The Valley of the Bees
Delphine Seyrig, Stolen Kisses
1965 movie nominated in 1968 Samia Kerbash, The Battle of Algiers

Anne Wiazemsky, Teorema

Substitute for Kerbash


Sofiko Chiaureli, The Color of Pomegranates



Runner-ups:  Shanni Wallis (Oliver!), Lynn Carlin (Faces), Akiko Koyama (Death by Hanging)

 

I think this choice for 1968 Best Supporting Actress needs some revision.  (1) Having recently rewatched  both Oliver! and The Battle of Algiers it's clear that Wallis and the actress from The Battle of Algiers should switch places.  (2) Leaving aside which year The Battle of Algiers should be considered in, it's clear that I've muddled the actress I was thinking of.  The most dramatic scene involving women in that movie involves three young militants who adapt French fashions so that they can place bombs in revenge for a settler atrocity.  The first one is named, according to a script of the movie I found online, is named Djamila and she appears earlier in the movie as part of the recruitment of Ali La Pointe, the main Algerian character.  The second is named Zohra and she appears later when Ali's superior, El-Hadi Jaffar (played by an actual high ranking FLN militant) is arrested by the French.  The third is Hassiba, who bleaches her hair, and is later caught with Ali in his final standoff with the French.  She is played by Fusia El-Kader.  Who played the first two women is not clear at all, and Kerbash, who I chose because she was the first women's name I found when I looked up the cast, plays a comparatively minor character named Fathia. To complicate things even more, El-Kader's character is called Halima in other places.  (3) It now appears that The Color of Pomegranates is actually a 1969 movie, so Chiaureli would end up being number eight for that year.

There were quite a few nominated films in 2017 that missed the mark for me, and Florida Project wasn't quite the worst one, but I still did not care for it. Willem Defoe was quite good in a very low key part, and there was one more performer in a very small part who worked well, but nothing else gelled about it for me. Indeed, while it played, I was mostly peeved and irritated. I saw where people stated it was a masterpiece, a stunning achievement, a shameful snub for Best Picture. Nothing could be further from the truth....

Can't this thread cover a longer time-period?

:huh:

When the thread was 'active' it spent one week on each individual year as the current Favorite FF thread does.  When we got to the present I opened it up to include all the years we discussed (by changing the thread title).  There are a lot of pages to go through if you are inclined but there were some pretty good posts.
