On the list of the best movies about making movies – Minnelli’s The Bad and the Beautiful, Cukor’s A Star is Born, Fassbinder’s Beware of a Holy Whore, Fellini’s 8½ – François Truffaut’s DAY FOR NIGHT invariably lands near the top.
(The title refers to the practice of shooting a night scene during daylight hours, using a blue filter to screen out the brightness.)
This week, at Laemmle’s 45th anniversary screening of the film, Jacqueline Bisset will talk about her work with Truffaut on the picture.
DAY FOR NIGHT, Thursday, May 10, at 7:30 pm.
LAEMMLE ROYAL, 11523 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Los Angeles.
