Aro Recommended Fedora

 

USA 1978, 109 minutes
Dir. Billy Wilder
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Drama, Classics

Topics: Showbiz.

 

Aroview: Fascinating later work from dir. Wilder, in which an impoverished film producer travels to the Greek islands to track down an elusive European star (modelled on Greta Garbo).

Reusing some of the elements of SUNSET BOULEVARD (including actor William Holden), this relates a contrasting, though equally dark fairytale of show business. Gripping throughout and despite the eventual unveiling of grotesque secrets more in keeping with a horror film, its atmosphere is soft, romantic and mysterious.
