Entertainment Review
This article presents information on motion pictures. When the motion pictures themselves are made abroad, the exotic fascination is doubled, and the credibility of fancy is enhanced. "The Earrings of Madame De," for example, comes from France, directed by Max Ophuls, who made "La Ronde" and "Le Plaisir." Ophuls' last concern is mere realism, and yet his evocation of life in the Parisian haute-monde in the 1890's is marvelously vivid. Luis Bunuel is best known for transporting audiences into fantastic, surrealistic worlds on the screen--as in "Un Chien Andalou."
