Happy Birthday Jack Cardiff: 18th September 1914 - 22nd April 2009

For his inventions, imagination and sheer audacity, there has never been another colour cameraman like Jack Cardiff…Jack’s lighting and composition in Black Narcissus and The Red Shoes would have infuriated Delacroix, because he couldn’t have done any better himself, in imagination or in chiaroscuro. - Michael Powell.

You begin to see flourishes, with a camera cut, or a piece of composition, or the length of a shot; you begin to realise that he’s using the lens like brushstrokes. It’s a painting he’s made…Paintings that moved, extraordinarily, moved not only visually, but emotionally and psychologically also. - Martin Scorcese.

I wouldn’t start to dare to compare myself to what Turner did, but I’ve learnt a lot of lessons from Turner. You should be bold, and you should go out and do something that’s different and bold, and that’s the whole essence of photography in a sense. - Jack Cardiff

The best way of seeing how fabulous Jack’s work is - other than watching it of course - is to watch Cameraman (2010) Craig McCall’s documentary about him, filmed when Jack was still around and working, in the mid 2000s. Not only is is informative and entertaining, you also get to meet Jack, who is bloody lovely.

Silent movie fans often mope about the death of the art. Well, here’s our chance to get a silent movie made.
London Symphony Kickstarter Campaign

I love this idea because it is all about the visual essence of silent film.
I know we are all on budgets but do consider contributing because:
a) You are supporting independent film
b) You are supporting silent film
Pretty noble causes.

These are some of the rare-to-me photos of Lauren Bacall I’ve come across lately. Her birthday isn’t actually until tomorrow but TCM’s tribute starts tonight at 8p Eastern
