I just adore Faye in her late 60s goddessy period. Glamour with a capital G ! I used to have a still of her from De Sica's dreadful A Place For Lovers (1969) on my wall then. (She is dying of a rare disease in this one but at least gets Marcello Mastroianni!).
Wasn't she involved with Marcello at the time? I'm getting my late '60s blonds all mixed up.I watched the original Thomas Crown Affair not too long ago and was just amazed by her hair and wardrobe. But the '60s were a different time, of course. One in which an insurance investigator would wear couture daywear and spend hours a day having an elaborate updo concocted, the better to charm her quarries with.
Gorgeous apart from a mouth like a racehorse.
She even managed to look elegant in "Network" where everyone else looked as if they were wearing polyester-covered sheetrock.
Michael - I've always wanted to see that, and Puzzle of a Downfall Child. The latter had a screening here in NYC last month, and I didn't know about it until after the fact!Topaz - She was like a living, breathing edition of Women's Wear Daily, vintage 1968, in that film, wasn't she?Rose - I'll still take Faye's thoroughbred mouth over, say, Julia Roberts' plow horse one.marksparky - Yes... what the hell happened afterwards?!
True Story: my favorite film of all time is Chinatown.
Such a shame she disfigured that fabulous face...
