Movie Clip

All That Jazz (1979) — (Movie Clip) A Better Dancer Another pass at director Bob Fosse’s “It’s Showtime” montage with dexedrine leads to a rehearsal where the Fosse figure Joe Gideon (Roy Scheider) shreds dancer Victoria (Deborah Geffner), whom he hired in exchange for sex, who then earns some redemption, in All That Jazz, 1979.
Carnal Knowledge (1971) - A Special Quality Jonathan (Jack Nicholson) makes a play for his best friend's girl Susan (Candice Bergen) while on a contrived visit to Smith College in director Mike Nichols' Carnal Knowledge, 1971.
Carnal Knowledge (1971) - Do You Have A Name Or Something? After a dialogue prologue under the credits, the car confirms the late 1940's period suggested by the music, as two Amherst men (Jack Nicholson and Art Garfunkel as Jonathan and Sandy) assess then approach Smith College co-ed Susan (Candice Bergen), in director Mike Nichols' Carnal Knowledge, 1971.
Carnal Knowledge (1971) - What's In It For Her? In the shower at the dorm, Jonathan (Jack Nicholson) presses Sandy (Art Garfunkel) to get more aggressive with his girlfriend, with plenty cursing, in Carnal Knowledge, 1971, from Jules Feiffer's screenplay.
Carnal Knowledge (1971) - You Have A Long Life Line... The first appearance of Bobbie (Ann-Margret) features her on a date with accountant Jonathan (Jack Nicholson), first in a dimly-lit restaurant, with a deliberate artificial technique by director Mike Nichols and cinematographer Giuseppe Rotunno, then in a Manhattan taxi, in Carnal Knowledge, 1971.
Carnal Knowledge (1971) - Your Life's Work With an artful edit from director Mike Nichols, Jonathan (Jack Nicholson) and Sandy (Art Garfunkel) meet at Central Park about ten years after their college days and resume conversation about females in Carnal Knowledge, 1971, from Jules Feiffer's screenplay.
Carnal Knowledge (1971) - You Never Said That Before! Saved for the ending, Rita Moreno as, we presume, sex-worker Louise receives divorced accountant Jonathan (Jack Nicholson), in what looks like contemporary New York, ending screenwriter Jules Pfeiffer’s story that began in college back in the 1940’s, in director Mike Nichols’ Carnal Knowledge, 1971.
I Compagni (The Organizer) -- (1964) - I Know All Your Faces Turin, Italy, striking factory workers stealing coal, their ringleader the professor (Marcello Mastroianni, title character) seeking support, hungry teenage Bianca (Raffaella Carra`) winning the sympathy of a young policeman, in Mario Monicelli's I Compagni, a.k.a. The Organizer, 1964.
I Compagni (The Organizer) -- (1964) - Rice And Turnips Again After a domestic opening, director Mario Monicelli's sequences depicting the working day in a turn-of-the-century textile factory in Turin, worker Pautasso (Folco Lulli) visiting his child, in I Compagni a.k.a.

I Compagni (The Organizer) -- (1964) - But That Would Be A Strike Just arrived in Turin, the professor (Marcello Mastroianni) inserts himself into a spat between semi-organized factory workers led by Pautasso (Folco Lulli), and hesitant Raoul (Renato Salvatori), early in Mario Monicelli's I Compagni a.k.a. The Organizer, 1964.
Man Of La Mancha (1972) - It's All The Same! Sophia Loren in her first scene as "Aldonza," the "serving wench," hard to imagine another actress doing better, with It's All The Same by Mitch Leigh and Joe Darion, her own vocal, in Alberto Grimaldi's production of Man Of La Mancha, 1972.
Man Of La Mancha (1972) - A Monstrous Giant Fully into their fictional roles for the first time, Peter O'Toole (as Don Quixote) and James Coco (as Sancho Panza) in their defining assault on a windmill, in Man Of La Mancha, 1972, directed by Arthur Hiller.
