  • The Barkleys of Broadway

    The Barkleys of Broadway

    ★★½

    Not the swan song I may have hoped for, but has a few interesting moments (including Astaire's Red Shoes-style number with a possessed pair of kicks). A brief review here.

  • Diary of a Chambermaid

    Diary of a Chambermaid

    ★★★½

    "Celestine seems to have expected that her employers were mostly hiring her for their personal pleasure. At times she plays along; at other times she teases them to the point of vexation. It doesn’t take long for us to realize that the chambermaid is really running the household. (The dark-eyed Moreau, also the engine of Francois Truffaut’s Jules and Jim, brings the sting of vindictiveness to the part.)"
