EYES OF LAURA MARS
1978, Sony Repertory, 104 min, USA, Dir: Irvin Kershner

Fashion photographer Laura Mars (Faye Dunaway) can see through the eyes of a wanted serial killer as he commits crimes. When she proves her unbelievable ability to Detective John Neville (Tommy Lee Jones), the two join forces to find the murderer - before the murderer finds Laura. A fascinating thriller from director Irvin Kershner. Theoni V. Aldredge’s late 1970s glamour costumes have become legendary, and designer Marios Schwab cited the film as an influence for his fall 2010 collection for Halston.


THE GREAT GATSBY
1974, Paramount, 144 min, USA, Dir: Jack Clayton

“Gone is the romance that was so divine.” Director Jack Clayton (THE INNOCENTS) directs Francis Ford Coppola's screenplay adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel about the tarnished and tragic American dream, Robert Redford excels as the ill-fated, hopelessly determined Jay Gatsby, while Mia Farrow plays the sweet but poisonous Daisy Buchanan, with Bruce Dern as her bullying husband, Tom. Theoni V. Aldredge received an Oscar for her glittering 1920s costume design, while Nelson Riddle received an Oscar for Best Original Score.
