Truman Capote photographed by Richard Avedon.
Capote was an American author and comedian, many of whose short stories, novels, plays, and nonfiction are recognized literary classics, including the novella Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1958) and In Cold Blood (1966), which he labelled a “nonfiction novel.” At least 20 films and television dramas have been produced from Capote novels, stories and screenplays.

from the readers on this site but publish it here as a record of all

My first months at university were quite dark and horrible, cold and lonely. Simply awful. Continue reading
Josephine Baker c. 1933.
My one criticism of Midnight in Paris was the Baker character was only referenced fleetingly.
Wait, I have another criticism that just occurred to me. The end where he meets Gabrielle played by Léa Seydoux (with a golden glow around her hair) on the bridge? You know, where she says she doesn’t mind walking in the rain. With hair like that, in real life she would hate to get it wet in the rain.
Yes, I am not in a romantic mood at the moment. When I am in a romantic mood, Midnight in Paris is flawless and I imagine running away with Marion Cotillard or Léa Seydoux. Can never decide which as they both have their attractions.

Leo Fuchs is a Hollywood veteran who shot some of the most moving and memorable images of 50s and 60s film icons ever made. Fuchs’ introduction to moviemaking came as one of the world’s leading “special photographers” on movie sets in Europe and North America. Starting as a freelance magazine photographer, he was one of the rare outsiders invited onto movie sets, where he often developed life–long relationships with the actors and filmmakers and captured candid shots both during shooting and after hours while socializing with the stars.
With the support of his dear friend Cary Grant, Fuchs left photography behind in 1964 and spent the next 20 years as a motion picture producer.
