Review: The Woman in The Window (1944)

By 4 Star Film Fan on Jun 5, 2019 From 4 Star Films

The first time I ever saw The Woman in The Window it always struck me as odd. Here was the fellow who was known as a gangster through and through and yet he was playing a bookish professor buried in his work and obsessed about psychoanalytic theory. His idea for a fine time is conversing with his in... Read full article

The Other Side of the Wind (2018, Orson Welles)

Facts about

The wind in the film was created by the propellers of eight aircraft stationed on location in the Mojave Desert.
The airplane propellers blowing hot air, sand and smoke were so dangerous that crew members were forced to wear long-sleeved clothing (in 120-degree weather), eye goggles, bandannas around their necks and greasepaint on their faces whenever the machines were being run.
The film's artificially happy ending was insisted upon by the studio after test audiences balked at the original ending, where the insane Letty wanders into the desert, certain to die. This more appropriate ending reportedly still exists in Europe.
