What's The Matter With Helen? - Moppets With Ambitious Mothers Moved from Iowa, partners and mothers of convicted murderers, now in Hollywood making a go of their new talent school, nervous Helen (Shelley Winters) revealing some history to Adelle (Debbie Reynolds), when a new character (Michael MacLiammoir) appears, in What's The Matter With Helen, 1971.
Games (1967) - For Two Years We Have Been Dead Contemporary Manhattan as a guest (Antony Eustrel) enters a party hosted by Paul (James Caan) and Jennifer (Katharine Ross, in her first lead role) Montgomery, George Furth and Kent Smith prominent in attendance, opening director Curtis Harrington's Games, 1967, also starring Simone Signoret.
Games (1967) - I Tend To Be Too Mystical Foreigner Lisa (Simone Signoret) has just wheedled her way into the Manhattan home of Jennifer (Katharine Ross) by pretending she was sent by a college friend, but applies another twist when she's found out, early in director Curtis Harrington's Games, 1967, also staring James Caan.
Games (1967) - Two Lovers Of Mine Having established some rapport after insinuating herself into the home of adventurous Manhattaners Paul (James Caan) and Jennifer (Katharine Ross), French Lisa (Simone Signoret) raises the stakes in the adult play arena, in Games, 1967, by the enigmatic horror director Curtis Harrington.
