Starring Faye Dunaway - 4/3
We'll also be screening four of Dunaway's outstanding movie performances including her Oscar®-winning vehicle, Network (1976), which she introduced at a screening during the festival. In this satire of the television industry, written by Paddy Chayefsky and directed by Sidney Lumet, Dunaway is the ruthless programming head Diana Christensen who will go to any lengths to ensure high ratings. Arthur Penn's Bonnie and Clyde (1967), which gave Dunaway her breakthrough role as gun moll Bonnie Parker, brought her first Oscar® nomination. In The Arrangement (1969), directed by Elia Kazan and based on his novel of the same name, Dunaway plays the mistress of a troubled ad executive (Kirk Douglas). The sentimental drama The Champ (1979), directed by Franco Zeffirelli, sees Dunaway as the wife of an ex-boxer (Jon Voight) who is attempting a comeback.
