The many faces of Claude Chabrol, but which are deliberate funny faces and which are just Claude? And which is your favourite?

Claude

Three jobs on the go now, and it’s marking time at college. I quite like being busy, though, and the marking is a short, intense burst (or it better be, otherwise it won’t happen on time). The projects are a documentary on a British filmmaker, a video essay on a silent film, and a text essay on a Hollywood classic. I can say no more.

Might be able to blog something this evening, but in case I don’t, here is an amusing photo of Claude Chabrol. Claude usually pulled a funny face when being photographed, but this one seems fairly natural. But still funny. Maybe the funny faces were a reaction against the fact that he tended to look funny even when he wasn’t trying.

The other funny face guy, of course, is camera-shy Mario Bava.
