Since I am not able to edit my former post:
Please use this still for Brothel No. 8. I think it’s better than the one I posted before.
Vanessa A. Williams:
“Vanessa A. Williams (born May 12, 1963) is an American actress who has appeared in several television series such as Melrose Place and the Showtime cable television series Soul Food. In 1996, she was featured in the television series Murder One. In 1988, she appeared in the music video for “Parents Just Don’t Understand” sung by rap duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince.
“Williams was born in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, New York City. While not related, she is sometimes confused with singer-actress Vanessa L. Williams, who starred in the original film version of Soul Food.”
DT: Hmm…why is it that movie still suggestions always take longer to process, if at all? What exactly is the process there?

Profile Information for : Maroun Bagdadi – Director
Maroun Bagdadi (Arabic: مارون بغدادي) (January 21, 1950 – December 11, 1993) was a Lebanese film director known for his vivid portrayal of Lebanon’s civil war. Bagdadi was internationally the best-known Lebanese filmmaker of his generation. He worked with American producer/director Francis Coppola and made several films in French that became hits in France.
Maroun Bagdadi was arguably Lebanon’s most prominent filmmaker, one whose work has been seen all over the world. One of his best-known films, “Houroub Saghira” (Little Wars), was shown at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival, drawing this comment from a prominent film critic: “To make a film about Beirut that eschews polemics for more universal, more human issues is an achievement.” His first Lebanese production was for television, an educational program called “7½.” In 1975, he directed his first feature film, Beyrouth Ya Beyrouth. Koullouna Lil Watan, a 75-minute documentary produced in 1979, won the Jury Honor Prize at the International Leipzig Festival Documentary and Animated Film . – Wikipedia

Born in Sydney, Watt completed a Graduate Diploma of Film and Television (Animation) at the Swinburne (now VCA) School of Film and Television, Melbourne in 1990. Her student film “Catch of the Day” was to reflect the style of future work. In 1995, she directed a short film, Small Treasures, which won Best Short Film at the Venice Film Festival.

During the post-production of Look Both Ways, Watt was diagnosed with cancer. Her second film My Year Without Sex was released in 2009.
She died on 4 November 2011 after suffering for six years with breast and bone cancer, aged 53. –Wikipedia
james wong howe
James Wong Howe, A.S.C. (Chinese 黃宗霑; pinyin: Huáng Zōngzhān) (August 28, 1899 – July 12, 1976) was a Chinese American cinematographer who worked on over 130 films. A master at the use of shadow, he was one of the first to use deep-focus cinematography, photography in which both foreground and distant planes remain in focus. Although the film technique of deep focus is most associated with cinematographer Gregg Toland, Howe used it in his first sound film, Transatlantic, ten years before Toland made the technique famous on Citizen Kane.
During the 1930s and 1940s he was one of the most sought after cinematographers in Hollywood. He was nominated for ten Academy Awards for cinematography, winning twice. Howe was judged to be one of history’s ten most influential cinematographers in a survey of the members of the International Cinematographers Guild.
Won Oscars: Best Cinematography for The Rose Tattoo (1955) and Hud (1963)

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner
A short bio and picture for Pierre Perrault, who should be listed as a Director.
And a quote: “My films are not political. They are tools of reflection, the materials needed to know ourselves.”
“Pierre Perrault had initially intended to be a lawyer. After classical studies, he enrolled in the law faculty of the University of Montreal in 1948 and continued at the University of Paris. He then studied international private law at the University of Toronto. He practised law in Montreal from 1954 to 1956, when he was hired as a writer for the French-language network of CBC Radio. Over the years, he would also write television dramas.
In his films, Perrault concentrated on men who reveal themselves through their language, and through their acts primarily having to do with daily life, work and survival. He often uncovered the myths underlying their activities, including hunting: The Shimmering Beast (La Bête lumineuse) (1982) takes us into a fantastic world, giving us a glimpse of the fear that underlies the boasting of hunters. More than a hunting trip, this film is a voyage into the heart of men and of self, a voyage beyond life too, a confrontation with death. There followed four more films in which man pursues a quest into the future or back to his roots. This would lead in 1994 to two complementary films: Cornouailles, in which the filmmaker observes the muskoxen’s merciless combat to dominate the herd, and L’oumigmag ou L’objectif documentaire, a documentary maker’s reflections on his art, writing, nature and life.
Perrault’s highly poetic and philosophical work enjoys retrospectives held regularly all over the world. Along with his filmmaking, he has produced a remarkable literary oeuvre: collections of poetry, plays, annotated transcriptions of his films, etc.
Throughout his career, Perrault received numerous awards and honours for both his writing and his films. He was made Honorary Doctor of Letters by Laval University in Quebec City in 1986 and received the Albert Tessier Award from the Government of Quebec in 1994. In 1997, the Université de Sherbrooke made him Honorary Doctor of Letters."
A small but much-appreciated edit to the bio of Antonio Margheriti:
Antonio Margheriti (19 September 1930 – 4 November 2002), also known under the pseudonym Anthony M. Dawson, was a prolific Italian filmmaker. He was born in Rome and died in 2002 from a heart attack in Monterosi, Viterbo, near Rome at the age of 72.
Margheriti started out in the Italian film industry in 1956 as a screenwriter. He started directing in 1960, his first film being “Assignment Outer Space”. Margheriti is known for his science fiction, horror, spaghetti western and action movies. He was the director of such cult movies as Cannibal Apocalypse, Castle of Blood, The Virgin of Nuremberg, Assignment Outer Space, Wild Wild Planet, Naked You Die, Mr. Super Invisible, The Last Hunter, Battle of the Worlds and numerous others. Most of his films were directed under the pseudonym of Anthony M. Dawson. He stopped using his real name in the USA early in his career, when he realized the English translation of the name “Antonio Margheriti” was “Anthony Daisies”, and he thought it sounded too effeminate.
He was the only Italian director who worked directly for American production companies like MGM, United Artists, 20th Century Fox, Columbia Pictures, etc. with films like: Yor, the Hunter from the Future, Take a Hard Ride, Killer Fish, etc. Margheriti said his action/adventure films were his favorites, and his least favorite movies were the sword-and-sandal peplum films he made in the early 1960s (such as “Devil of the Desert” and “Giants of Rome”).
For years, director Richard Morrissey disputed Margheriti’s claim that he had directed “Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein” in the early 1970s, saying that Margheriti was mostly just a technical advisor on that film. Morrissey said Margheriti did however direct a very, very brief segment of the movie (mostly the scenes involving the two children roaming around in the lab).
Margheriti worked with many well-known genre actors such as Lee Van Cleef, John Saxon, Claude Rains, John Morghen, Klaus Kinski, Barbara Steele, Reb Brown, Donald Pleasence, Yul Brynner, David Warbeck, Luciano Pigozzi, Marvin Hagler, Terence Hill, Fred Williamson, Christopher Lee and many others. Most of his later films were shot in the Philippines (especially his war films). Margheriti also collaborated on the special effects in two Italian cult films which he did not direct, Sergio Leone’s “Fistful of Dynamite” (1971) and Aldo Lado’s “The Humanoid” (1979).
Margheriti retired from filmmaking in 1996 at age 66. He died in 2002 of natural causes. Margheriti’s son Edoardo and daughter Antonella are both also involved in filmmaking. Eli Roth’s character in the 2009 Quentin Tarantino film Inglourious Bastards took Margheriti as his namesake. —Wikipedia

Correction in title needed: http://mubi.com/films/samand-and-foolad-zereh-the-ogre
The name of the main comic character -played by Parviz Sayyad – who appeared in a series of films is Samad, not Samand. So the title should be modified into “Samand and Foolad Zereh, the ogre”

For the tenth time, Tight Little Island is exactly the same film as Whisky Galore! The former is just the inferior American release title.
Why on earth would the yanks rename Whisky Galore? Would was the point in that? And why on earth Tight Little Island – it suggests the Scots are mean, which is racist.
