Friday Follies: Hair

There is no identifying information for this photo at all. I have no real idea what’s going on other than it has something to do with film. I don’t know who they are.

But look at all that glorious hair!

Bonus: Is it just me or is this a little unnerving?

    Looks like Santa is giving blood. What happens when you press the button?

    The guy in the wild sweater and great hair is James Blue, former professor of film and a really good film maker in his own right. The photo is in the editing room at the media center. James died a rather premature death several years ago, a great loss to everyone who knew him. He was instrumental in attracting and keeping (while he was still alive) Dominique de Monil interested in working with Rice’s Art Department. He also attracted many of the top documentary film makers to come to campus and meet with his classes. It is too bad that you did not get to know him. I once had a part in one of his films where I was required to drink beer in Kay’s while the scene was shot over and over until I too was shot.

    Pinned to the shelf with the cans of film is a sheet of paper that seems to be entitled, “A Free Woman.” On November 26, 1976, as part of a series of women’s films, the Rice Media Center showed a film called “A Free Woman: A Sad Comedy” (also called “A Free Woman” or “Strohfeuer”). This film by Volker Schlöndorff and Margarethe von Trotta was made in 1972 and released in 1974. It was about a women in her thirties getting a divorce and struggling through menial jobs in a male-dominated world.

    On the wall is an intriguing poster. The visible letters seem to be: “WOMEN ARE N… D….”
