    Excellent photos. Who could ever forget the '77 World Series and Reggie Jackson's 3 home runs in game 6.

    The film seen on the Selwyn marquis circa 1970 is being shown this weekend
    as part of the ongoing "To Save and Project" film series at MoMA ...



    L'Uccello dalle piume di cristallo (The Bird with the Crystal Plumage).

    Saturday, November 15, 2008, 6:00 p.m., Theater 1, T1
    Sunday, November 16, 2008, 1:00 p.m., Theater 1, T1


    The Bird with the Crystal Plumage.
    1970. Italy/West Germany.
    Written and directed by Dario Argento

    1970. Italy/West Germany. 97 min. Written and directed by Dario Argento.
    With Tony Musante, Eva Renzi. Argento's directorial debut is a masterpiece
    of suspense, as famous for its voluptuous and symbolic use of color
    (unforgettable shades of red and yellow) and music (a brilliant score by
    Ennio Morricone) as it is for its blend of surreal violence, mystery, and
    eroticism. Set in a modernist Rome drawn entirely from Argento's uncanny
    imagination, and evoking a sense of urban alienation through shadow and
    reflections, the film centers on an American writer who witnesses a brutal
    assault and must uncover the identity of the assailant to prove his own
    innocence. Preserved by Cineteca Nazionale, Rome. In Italian; English subtitles.

    It was -- rough around the edges and not nearly so corporately clean.

    The city had a different, exciting kind of charm back then...well into the 80's. That said, beneath the veneer, it was also a bit sleazy. I remember wandering into some of those Broadway dives with friends in the mid-late 80's back when we were curious and newly legal. There were some characters in there.

    Hot mop to booth #6..........

    ^Well, not that there's anything wrong with that

    Every now and then I'll come across some pics that I just love. These are from Tony Redhead/Flickr, though I adjusted the contrast & exposure to minimize haze. These are all from 1979.
