Let’s Get Late
Regular blogathon participant and Shadowplayer Gareth’s Movie Diary considers “A picture that counts double in the late film stakes: director Jean Girault died during filming of star Louis de Funès’s swansong” — here. Makes me wonder what the MOST late late film is? I want to suggest Robert DeNiro as a great late actor, since he appears in the last Kazan, the last Leone, the last Brando, John Frankenheimer’s penultimate cinema film, and a film that was both Gregory Peck’s last and a posthumous outing for Bernard Herrmann. I’m probably missing a few others.
And at Limerwrecks, a nod to John Ford’s last in verse.
