I swear it, a Clown came out of nowhere and messed me about!


Someone ought to report it to the police.


Can you see it! The old--hiding behind the bass fiddle trick!


Will you forget about those clowns and pay attention to me!


Maybe if I sit like this, they won't bother me anymore.


If vaudeville didn't die, we wouldn't be having this kind of a problem today.


You talking to me?


Yeah, You! You got something to say!


OH! MY! GOD! They're in the back of the bus!
Off the bus, on the bus....it's all part of the problem.


Something creepy about clowns, always smiling and cracking jokes...


That's Maddy, and her Evil Clowns.


Evil Laughter can be heard....


Stay back! I'm warning you!


And now, for a Classic Profile of the Hellenistic Era...

There comes a time in a man's life when he has to stand up
and say No to a clown.


But first, a nice glass of wine.....


I never said clowns weren't funny...


Time for a smoochie break and then a spin on the dance floor.


This step is sometimes referred to as The Lindsaygirl Tango Twirl


Where's Titus Pullo when you need him to rip someone's fake face off?

Ah Josef Raz. One of my favorite characters!!! Nice rewrite of the script there DE. You did a Hey, Jude on this... took a sad song and made it better. Wink

This story just breaks my heart every time I watch it.

Is it me or the pictures, but do his eyes look light brown in this movie?

Contacts, perhaps!? Although it is possible, I suppose that Josef, being of European descent rather than Middle Eastern, may have blue eyes.

Ah, who knows. I'm looking too closely.

They do look hazel or green if anything. Not blue at all.
The original that I have has a reddish, brownish, yellowish tinge to it.

Perhaps the director gave it the color cast of what he thought a Middle Eastern subject matter movie should have.
Interesting.
Or maybe the film print it came from, lost it's blue dye. They do break down, so the film people say, even after a few years.
That's why you hear about recent movies being digitally remastered.
In Seduction, I think he wore brown contacts for some scenes, but not in others.
I don't think he wore contacts for this one, but you never know.
Even in that pic where he wears the tan shirt, and he's looking up all innocently gorgeous, his eyes look greenish hazel.

I watched this again last night. Damn, why do I cry every time Amin's sister (can't remember her name, LOL) confronts Raz by the phone booth? Why? Is it the look on Raz's face that just gives the entire game away, or is it her forgiveness?

And then in the next scene in the Olympic Stadium --- OMGTEHSTRUT! Taken to the extreme!

Damn, I love this movie. I just love it.

Yes, it's a film that holds up well today.

Given that it's based on a Joseph Conrad story about betrayal and political intrigue.

Under Western Eyes (1911) This novel depicts the 19th century Russian police state and extremist revolutionaries. Razumov betrays to the authorities his fellow student Haldin, who has assasinated an official. Sent to Geneva as a government spy, Razumov falls in love with Haldin's sister Nathalie. He confesses the truth to the revolutionaries and is beatne, defened, and run over by a tram car; finally he returns to Russia. "the Western eyes" are those of an Englishman who reads and comments on Razumov's journal. --Very much like Conrad, he often has a narrator, commentator.

I think the color dyes of the original print must be fading.
Hopefully the director will have it digitally remastered someday.
