Let’s all look at PHANTOM OF THE OPERA again for evidence of Godard’s authorship.

“Film is truth at twenty frames per second. Less if you undercrank.”

Thanks to Mark Medin for the image.

    The Godard-Chaney artistic collaboration also included such neglected gems as:

    Mr Wu, Le Chinois
    Contempt 2: Mockery
    Tell it to the Carabiniers
    Pierrot Gets Slapped
    and the sequel, Laugh Pierrot Laugh

  5. Not to mention

    Paris After Midnight
    Two or Three Unholy Thing I Know About Him

    and
    West of St.-Germaine-des-pres

  6. The Hunchback of Notre Musique
    Where East is East, a Woman is a Woman

  8. I do like film combos. For some reason, Raoul Walsh’s films fold in very nicely with each other, eg They Drive with their Boots On.
