This HAS to be the still for Tetro. It’s just too cool to turn down.
Michael Reeves who had nothing to do with Batman: Mask of the Phantasm
It may be in B&W, but considering its quality I think this picture should replace the current Tecnica di un omicidio picture.

Paul Calinescu (23 August 1902 – 25 March 2000), known as the father of Romanian cinema and a winner of the top prize at the prestigious Venice Film Festival, was a Romanian film director and screenwriter. He directed 14 films between 1934 and 1964.
In the early 1930s, Calinescu made Romania’s first professional documentary films. In 1938 “Tara Motilor,” a production dedicated to the Romanians living in Western Carpathian Mountains, was awarded the top prize in the documentary section at the Venice Film Festival.
“He was the maestro, the respected and beloved colleague of all Romanian cinema artists,” the Sahiafilm Studio said.
Laird Cregar (July 28, 1913 – December 9, 1944) was an American film actor.
Samuel Laird Cregar was the youngest of six sons of Edward Matthews Cregar, a cricketer and member of a team called the Gentlemen of Philadelphia. They toured internationally in the late 1890s and early 1900s. Laird’s mother was the former Elizabeth Smith.
Laird Cregar was educated at Winchester College in England, spending his summers as a page boy and bit player with the Stratford-upon-Avon theatrical troupe. Upon completing his schooling, Cregar won a scholarship at California’s Pasadena Playhouse, supporting himself as a nightclub bouncer when funds ran out. So broke that at times he had to sleep in his car, Cregar forced Hollywood to pay attention to him by staging his own one-man show, in which he portrayed Oscar Wilde.
After a few minor film roles, Cregar was signed to a 20th Century-Fox contract; among his first major roles was the middle-aged Francis Chesney (at the age of only 24) in Charley’s Aunt (1941), the first of several showcases for the actor’s delightful comic flair. With his sinister portrayal of the psychopathic detective in I Wake Up Screaming (1941), he followed that up with the successful screwball comedy Rings on Her Fingers (1942) playing a con artist opposite Gene Tierney. Cregar became one of filmdom’s top “heavies” — both figuratively and literally. Seldom weighing less than 300 pounds (136 kg) throughout his adult life, Cregar became obsessed with his weight.
After top billing in The Lodger (1944), who may or may not be Jack the Ripper, the increasingly sensitive Cregar was growing tired of being thought of as merely a hulking villain.
When assigned the role of demented pianist George Bone in Hangover Square (1945), Cregar decided to give the character a “romantic” veneer, and, to that end, lost more than a hundred pounds on a crash diet which included prescribed amphetamines. The strain on his system resulted in severe abdominal problems; a few days after undergoing stomach surgery, Cregar died of a heart attack. He was 31 years old. Hangover Square was released two months after his death.
Cregar was laid to rest in a simple grave beside the road in the Eventide Section, at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California. —wikipedia

“I think that avant-garde art always has to be directly and belligerently dangerous, destructive, but not towards itself, rather, towards the collective inertia. The true aim of art should be to cultivate acts of war… it’s not enough to paint words on walls, these walls need to be torn down.”
Reginald C. Barker (April 2, 1886 – February 23, 1945) was a pioneer film director.
Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada his family moved to Scotland when he was an infant and then to the United States. Living in California, Barker wrote, produced, and acted in his first play at the age of sixteen following which he acted and handled stage manager duties with a traveling stock company. At age nineteen, he went to New York City where he worked as a stage manager for Henry Miller. Barker made his Broadway acting debut in 1910 in the Shubert brothers production of “Mary Magdalene” written by Maurice Maeterlinck.
Fascinated by the fledgling film business, Barker soon joined the Bison Motion Pictures division of the New York Motion Picture Company. At the company’s studio/ranch in California, he worked under film producer and screenwriter Thomas H. Ince. Acting was not Barker’s forte and he trained as an assistant director until 1912 when he directed his first film, a twenty minute western titled “On the Warpath” starring Art Acord. Barker went on to direct more than eighty films, including the acclaimed 1915 American Civil War drama The Coward. That same year he directed The Italian but because Thomas H. Ince was notorious for credit-grabbing, Barker originally went uncredited on this film. “The Italian” has been selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. The following year, with the United States still not involved in World War I, Barker co-directed the famous anti-war feature, Civilization.
During his career, Reginald Barker directed early stars such as Geraldine Farrar, William S. Hart, Sessue Hayakawa, Gladys Brockwell, Hoot Gibson, Willard Mack, and Myrna Loy. In his first talkie, “The Toilers” (1928) he directed Douglas Fairbanks Jr.. Barker made his last film in 1935. Titled “The Healer,” it starred Ralph Bellamy, Karen Morley and Mickey Rooney.
Reginald Barker retired to Pasadena, California where he and his wife operated a gift shop until his death from a heart attack in 1945. He is interred in the Inglewood Park Cemetery in Inglewood, California.—Wikipedia
Judith Malina (born June 4, 1926) is a German-born American theater and film actress, writer, and director. She was one of the founders of The Living Theatre, a radical political theatre troupe that rose to prominence in New York City and Paris during the 1950s and 60s.
Malina was born in Kiel, Germany, the daughter of Jewish parents: her mother, Rosel (née Zamora), was a former actress, and her father, Max Malina, a rabbi in the Conservative denomination. In 1929 at the age of three, she immigrated with her parents to New York City. Her parents helped her see how important political theatre was, as her father was trying to warn people of the Nazi menace. Except for long tours, she has lived in New York ever since. Interested in acting from an early age, she began attending the New School for Social Research in 1945 to study theatre under Erwin Piscator. Malina was greatly influenced by Piscator’s philosophy of theatre which was similar to Bertolt Brecht’s principles of “epic theatre” but went further in departing from traditional narrative forms. Piscator saw theatre as a form of political communication or agitprop (“Theatre interests me only when it is a matter of interest to society.”; Malina, unlike Piscator, was committed to nonviolence and anarchism.
Malina met her long-time collaborator and husband, Julian Beck, in 1943, when she was 17 and he was a student at Yale University. Beck, originally a painter, came to share her interest in political theatre. In 1947 the couple founded The Living Theatre, which they directed together until Beck’s death in 1985. Malina’s and Beck’s marriage was as unconventional as their work: Beck was bisexual and had a male partner, and Malina was involved with a series of men. The couple had two children: a son Garrick and a daughter Isha.
In 1963 they had to close the Living Theatre because of IRS charges (later proved false) of tax problems, and Malina and Beck were convicted of contempt of court. They received a five-year suspended sentence, and decided to leave the U.S. The company spent the next five years touring in Europe and creating increasingly radical works, culminating in Paradise Now. They returned to the US in 1968 to present their new work. In her book The Enormous Despair (1972), part of her series of published diaries, Malina expressed the sense of danger and unfamiliarity she felt on returning to the U.S. in the midst of the social upheavals of the late 1960s.
In 1969 the company decided to divide into three groups. One worked on the pop scene in London, another went to India to study traditional Indian theatre arts, and the third, including Malina and Beck, traveled in 1971 to Brazil to tour. They were imprisoned there on political charges for two months by the military government.
After Beck’s death from cancer in 1985, company member Hanon Reznikov, who had become Malina’s lover (they married in 1988), assumed co-leadership of the company. In 2007 it opened its own theater at 21 Clinton Street in Manhattan. In April 2008 Reznikov suffered a stroke, and while hospitalized, he died of pneumonia on May 3 at the age of 57.
Malina appeared occasionally in films, beginning in 1975, when she played Al Pacino’s mother in Dog Day Afternoon. Other roles include in Pacino’s Looking for Richard. She played Grandma Addams in The Addams Family (1991), and had major roles in Household Saints (1993) and the low-budget film, Nothing Really Happens (2003). She appeared in an episode of long-running TV series The Sopranos in 2006.

Quote for ISTVÁN SZABÓ:
“I don’t think that you can separate art and politics because politics is life, and if you separate art and politics it means that art has nothing to do with life.”
Quote for SLAVKO VORKAPIĆ:
“Most of the films made so far are examples not of creative use of motion-picture devices and techniques, but of their use as recording instruments only. There are extremely few motion pictures that may be cited as instances of creative use of the medium, and from these only fragments and short passages may be compared to the best achievements in the other arts.”
Quote for TAGE DANIELSSON:
“One thing you must appreciate with small children is that they don’t walk around showing pictures of their parents.”
