Adore 60’s!

Nisam sigurna kako je moguće da osećam nostalgiju prema vremenu u kom nikad nisam živela. Ali eto, iz nekog razloga zavidim ljudima čija se maldost odigravala baš tada 🙂 Veliki su mi fetiš tadašnji filmovi pa sam izdvojila neke i poželela da sa vama podelim zanimljivosti o njima.

I’m not sure how come that I can feel nostalgic about the times I’ve never actually lived in. However, for some reason I feel jealous of the people who were young in 60’s 🙂 Movies from that era are my huge fetish, so I chose some of them and wanted to share with you some trivia about them.

1.BREATHLESS

– Jean-Luc Godard je, kako bi doprineo spontanosti filma saopštavao tekst glumcima tek u trnutku snimanja scena.
-Jean-Paul Belmondo je bio prijatno iznenadjen reakcijom koju je film izazvao. Rekao je da odmah nakon snimanja toliko bio pesmističan da je sumnjao da će film uopšte biti prikazivan.
– Jean-Luc Godard nije završio scenario za vreme snimanja već su svakod dana snimane scene koje je tog jutra napisao.

-To give a more detached, spontaneous quality, Jean-Luc Godard fed the actors their line as scenes were being filmed.
-Jean-Paul Belmondo was very surprised by the warm reception the film received. Immediately after production he was convinced it was so badthat he thought the film would never be released.
-Jean-Luc Godard did not have finished script at the begiinning, instead writing scenes in the morning and filming them that day.

 

 

 

 

2.WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE

-Film je trebalo da bude snimljen u boji, ali se Bette suprotstavila tome uz objašnjenje da će to priču samo učiniti lepšom.

-U svojoj knjizi Bette govori da je imala potpunu kontrolu u pogledu kako šminka treba da izgleda. Ona je Jane zamislila kao nekog ko nikad ne pere svoje lice i samo dodaje nove slojeve šminke. Kada je ćerka videla u svom potpunom “Jane” izgledu rekla joj da je ovog puta otišla predaleko.

-U sceni kada Jane imitira glas Blanche, glas koji se čuje je zapravo Joan Crawford jer Bette nije umela dovoljno dobro da izveded to.

-The film was originally going to be shot in color. Bette opposed this, saying that it would just make a sad story look pretty.

-In her book “This N’ That”, Bette Davis said she had a lot of control over how her makeup should be done for the film. She imagined the older Jane as someone who would never wash her face, just put on another layer of makeup. When her daughter, Barbara Merrill, first saw her in full “Jane” makeup, she said, “Oh, mother, this time you’ve gone too far”.

-In scenes where Jane imitates Blanche’s voice, the voice heard is actually Joan Crawford’s voice, and not Bette Davis’s, as Bette could not master Joan’s voice properly.

 

 

 

 

 

3.THE CHILDREN’S HOUR

-Poslednji crno-beli film Audrey Hepburn.

-U poslednjoj zajedničkoj sceni obe nose džempere na kopčanje. Karenin je ženski a Martin muški.

-Miriam Hopkins koja je u originalnoj verziji  “These three”(1936) glumila Martu, u ovoj glumi njenu tetku Lily.

-Ketrin Hepburn je razmatrana za neku od dve glavne uloge, ali je bila definitivno prestara.

-Doris Day je takodje razmatrana za neku od vodećih uloga.

-Audrey Hepburn’s final black and white film.

-In the last scene together they are both wearing button down sweaters. Karen’s is ladies and Martha’s men’s.

Miriam Hopkins who played Martha in the original film These Three (1936) played the part of Martha’s Aunt Lily.

Katharine Hepburn was sought for one of lead roles. By early Sixties, Hepburn was far too old for either role, definutely.

Doris Day was considered to play one of two female leads, too.

 

 

 

4.EXODUS

-Mnogi kritičari su smatrali da nije dobra ideja da Paul Newman glumi  Ari Ben Canaana ali je Otto Preminger rekao da je samo njega mogao da zamisli u toj ulozi od prvog puta kad je pročitao knjigu.

-Na premijeri filma, kada se približio treći sat komičar Mort Sahl je ustao i viknuo Otto, pusti moje ljude da idu. Ta izjaava je postala popularna u Holivudu.

-Ovo je prvi film Jill Haworth.

-Although many critics felt that Paul Newman was miscast as Ari Ben Canaan, director Otto Preminger maintained that he had envisioned only Newman playing the part from the time he read the novel.

-At the film’s premiere, as the movie neared its third hour with the end not yet in sight, comedian Mort Sahl stood up from his seat in the packed theater and shouted, “Otto, let my people go!” The incident quickly became a popular piece of Hollywood lore.

-First film of Jill Haworth.

 

 

 

 

5.JULES ET JIM

-Francois Truffaut je bio toliko nervozan pre premijere filma da je odlučio da pogleda Marx Brothers film, umesto svog 🙂

-Francois Truffaut je mrzeo da snima ljubavne scene pa je zato scena sa Jim i Catherine snimana u polu mraku.

-U filmu Jean-Luc Godarda “Une femme est une femme” Jeanne Moureau glumi sebe. To je očigledno jer je Jean-Paul Belmondo pita “Kako napreduju Jules et Jim”. Truffaut i Godard su bili prijatelji tada pa su sarađivali.

-Ovaj roman je baziran na iskustvima mladog čoveka pa je originalna Catherine još uvek bila živa kada je film sniman. Prisustvovala je premijeri.

-Jeanne Moureau je morala da skače u reku jer je kaskader bio pijan. Posle toga je dva dana bila bolesna.

-Henri Serre je bio nepoznati komičar kada je izabran da glumi Jim-a. Njemu je pripala uloga prvenstveno zbog fizičke sličnosti sa Henri Pierre Roche-om.

-Kada Jim prvi put dođe u posetu Jules-u u Austiji,Ctherine mu pokazuje Jules-ovu sliku na kojoj je obučen kao Mocart. Ta slika potiče iz njegovog prethodnog filma.

-Truffaut je bio slomljen kada je Roche umro pre objavljivanja filma.

-Oscar Werner je izabran za ulogu Jules-a zbog toga što je usporeno govorio francuski.

-Francois Truffaut was so nervous on the opening night, he decided to see a Marx Brothers film instead of his own.

-Francois Truffaut hated filming love scenes, which is why Jim and Catherine’s big scene is shot in half darkness.

-In Jean-Luc Godard’s picture “Une femme est une femme”, Jeanne Moureau appears as herself. This becomes obvious because Jean/Paul Belmondo’s character, while meeting her at a café, asks her: “How is ‘Jules And Jim’ coming?” Truffaut and Godard were friends at the time, and often collaborated in each other’s movies.

Original novel was based on his own experiences as a young man. The original Catherine was still alive when the film was released and even attended the premiere incognito.

-Jeanne Moureau had to jump into a river because her stunt double turned up drunk. Moreau then had to spend 2 days ill in bed.

-Henri Serre   was an unknown actor performing comedy in a club when he was cast as Jim. He was cast because of his physical resemblance to Henri Pierre Roche.

-When Jim first visits Jules’ home in Austria, Catherine shows him a picture of Jules costumed as Mozart. Oskar Werner, the actor who plays Jules, also portrayed Mozart in an earlier film.

Truffaut was greatly saddened when Henri-Pierre Roché died before he could see how Truffaut filmed his novel.

-Oscar Werner  was cast because Truffaut wanted someone who spoke French with a slow delivery.

7.CHARADE

-Mnogi su mislili da je ovo Hitchkokov film, iako on nije imao nikakve veze s njim. Zato je nekoliko puta proglašavan najboljim filom Alfreda Hitchkoka koji on nikada nije snimio 🙂

-Prema Audrey, scena u kojoj Regina prosipa sladoled po Adamovom odelu je zasnovana na anegdoti koje se stvarno dogodila. Audrey je prosula vino po odelu Carry Grant-a na večeri.

-Carry Grant, koji je za vreme snimanja proslavio 59 rođendan je odlučio da više neće da snima ljubavne scene. Na to ga je navela razlika od 26 godina između njega i Audrey.

-Nakon završetka snimanja filma Carry Grant je izjavio “Sve što želim za božić je da snimim još jedan film sa Audrey Hepburn”. Nažalost to se nikada nije dogodilo.

-U sceni u kojoj Audrey umaže Carry-ja sladoledom upotrebljava izraze “assasin” i “assassination”. S obyiromd a je film objavljen malo posle ubistva Kennedy-ja producenti su bili zabrinuti za reakciju publike.

-Many people believe that this is an Alfred Hitchckok’s film. He was not involved in the making of the film at all. This confusion has prompted fans of the film to call it “the best Hitchcock film that Hitchcock never made”.

-According to Audrey Hepbrun, the scene where Regina spills ice cream on Adam’s suit is based on a real-life accident where Hepburn spilled red wine over Carry Grant’s suit at a dinner party.

-Cary Grant, who celebrated his 59th birthday during filming, decided it was time to stop playing the romantic lead after reviews focused on the 26-year age difference between him and Audrey Hepburn.

-After finishing this film, Cary Grant was quoted as saying, “All I want for Christmas is to make another movie with ,” Although this Audrey Hepburn sadly never happened.

-It was agreed that Cary Grant would not remove his shirt in the shower scene since he was nearly sixty and slightly overweight.

-During the dance game in the nightclub you see briefly in the background smoking a cigarette Audrey Hepburn’s husband Mel Ferrer.

-The character of Peter Joshua was named after director’s two sons: Peter and Joshua.

-Filmed virtually back-to-back with Paris-when it sizzles.

-In the scene in which Audrey Hepburn spills ice cream on Cary Grant’s suit, she uses the term “assassination” and he uses the term “assassin.” The movie was in release shortly after the Kennedy assassination in Dallas and Universal was so worried about audience reaction to this dialog.
