Kim Hunter is dead. So is Katrin Cartlidge. Hunter played “Stella!” in A Streetcar Named Desire. Katrin Cartlidge was a Mike Leigh regular. The last film I saw her in was No Man’s Land (which beat out Amelie for best foreign film last year because before casting its vote, the Academy had been smoking crack en masse.) She played the gutsy British journalist. She was rather young. Add these two to J. Lee Thompson (who directed The Guns of Navarone, among other things) and you’ve got your troika.
No time to get into the script ideas this morning, just because I slept past seven. That’s bordering on LATE for me. But the night before I couldn’t fall asleep until 5:15 for some reason, so I suppose that’s understandable.
