Faye Dunaway

Faye Dunaway? From Puzzle of a Downfall Child and Chinatown? Yep! An official poster for the 64th Cannes Film Festival, which is coming up in just a month running from May 11th to 22nd in the south of France, has been unveiled. The poster features a photo of actress Faye Dunaway that was taken by filmmaker Jerry Schatzberg in 1970. In the early 70s Schatzberg directed his first film, Puzzle of a Downfall Child, which starred Dunaway in one of her early roles. This was produced by the H5 design agency, which is also providing the graphics for the 2011 Festival. I'm excited to be returning to the festival for my third year!

64th Cannes Film Festival

"Model of sophistication and timeless elegance, it is an embodiment of the cinematic dream that the Festival de Cannes seeks to maintain." Cannes also adds via their official website: "Puzzle of a Downfall Child, in which Faye Dunaway has the starring role, has been restored by Universal Pictures. Rarely seen on the big screen the film will be distributed in France by Carlotta in the fall and the restored print will be screened in Cannes in the presence of the director and his actress." I always love the graphics and designs Cannes uses around the fest and this is another sleek, unique poster. I can't wait to find out the line-up of films this year.

    I really like that a lot. Classy, elegant, timeless. Just like they wanted.

    Is it just me, or are the smoking hot babes from 1950-1970 much, much, much more attractive than the smoking hot babes we have now? I'll take a Dunaway or a Bardot over a Megan Fox (or whatever) any day of the week.

      why throw Fox under the bus? plenty of other starlets out there...I mean Fox isn't some dumb drunk bimbo, I would have gone with Lohan or Paris...not Fox. I'd take Audrey Hepburn any day of the week, by the way.
      • Lebowski
        Good choice on Hepburn. And I chose Fox because she seems to qualify as a smoking hot babe. Lindsey and Paris qualify as mid-range escorts at best, definitely not babes.

          oh, well I apologize for snapping at you, I thought you were implying that she was like Lohan and Paris i.e. an idiot that provided nothing...even though I would love to see Lohan and Paris surprise the world with a change of attitude.
    • I was always into Devine from Pink Flamingos, she was a whole lotta woman.
      • Lebowski
        You'd probably ask her to brush her teeth before the date though

    Cool poster! I love it.

    A really nice poster. Faye, you were once the trendsetter. Please stop starring in B-movies anymore; stop playing diva attitude to the journalists. And don't blame "Mommie Dearest" ruined your career, you were awesome in it !
