THE BAREFOOT CONTESSA (1954) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Humphrey Bogart, Edmond O'Brien, Ava Gardner, Valentina Cortese, Rossano Brazzi, Marius Goring
Directed By:  Joseph L. Mankiewicz
Composed By:  Mario Nascimbene

“A heady Mankiewicz brew of Hollywood trash and wit.”
– Time Out London

“A caustic and cynical report on the glittering and graceless behavior of the Hollywood-international set. This vivid and withering illustration of a set and a general atmosphere is the chief fascination of this picture…sharp wit and surprise.”
– Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

Writer-director Joseph L. Mankiewicz gives us a bitter tale of stardom won and wasted in The Barefoot Contessa (1954), a film à clef about a Rita Hayworth-style Spanish dancer (Ava Gardner) who becomes an international movie star. Her sympathetic guide is a writer/director/ Mankiewicz surrogate (Humphrey Bogart); Edmond O’Brien won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar® playing the public relations lackey of a Howard Hughes-like mogul (Warren Stevens); and the film is stunningly photographed by the one and only Jack Cardiff (The Red Shoes, Black Narcissus).
