It’s the end of the year, almost, and the end of Forgotten By Fox. I’d have liked to bring it right up to date, but I spent too long in the 1930s, as usual. I may do some follow-ups here. Did you know SILKWOOD is unavailable to buy, rent or stream?

Anyway, the aptly-titled END OF THE GAME is a good strange one, Maximilian Schell returning to his native Switzerland to film a work by one of that country’s greatest writers, with the writer himself (above) participating as co-scenarist and actor, and a cast featuring Martin Ritt as leading man, Jon Voight as stooge (a role which would become familiar), Jackie Bissett, Donald Sutherland as a corpse, and Lil Dagover, in line with Schell’s interest in screen goddesses.
