Faye Dunaway loses her mind in 1970 cult film ‘Puzzle of a Downfall Child’

In Puzzle of a Downfall Child, Faye Dunaway plays a neurotic, spaced-out, emotionally unstable model by the name of Lou Andreas Sand living in a remote beach house, trying to recover from a nervous breakdown that saw her institutionalized.
 

 
The script for the film was inspired by the life of iconic 1950s fashion model Anne Saint Marie. Director Jerry Schatzberg (Panic in Needle Park) taped hours worth of interviews with Saint Marie—who suffered a nervous breakdown at the height of her career—and these sessions became the basis of the film. Actor Barry Primus plays a photographer who is interviewing Dunaway’s character. The conceit of the interview gives the almost cinéma vérité-ish film a non-narrative structure that allows for an effective use of the jarring flashback and flash-forward editing style popular at the time, and contributes viscerally to explaining how truly disconnected from reality Lou has become.
 

 
The film provides quite a good showcase for Dunaway as an actress, it’s raw at times. She’s stunning in it, too. What a great beauty she was then. Puzzle of a Downfall Child is also beautifully shot. First-time director Schatzberg was a noted photographer—he snapped Dylan for the Blonde on Blonde album cover and the Rolling Stones in drag—who worked for Vogue and other major magazines. It was when he shot Dunaway for Esquire that he pitched her the idea. The two became lovers and Schatzberg’s wife of 18 years divorced him, although Dunaway would leave him in 1969 for Marcello Mastroianni.


 
Sadly Puzzle of a Downfall Child has never come out on home video and so is not widely known. It was restored by Universal in 2011 and shown at the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival with Faye Dunaway and Jerry Schatzberg in attendance, but it’s still unavailable (except in France)

Lucky for you, if you’ve read this far, some kind soul has posted Puzzle of a Downfall Child, in its entirety and in great quality, on YouTube:

After a flood of letters from Star Trek fans, NASA named its first Space Shuttle Orbiter “Enterprise”. On September 17, 1976, Enterprise made its’ media debut at the Rockwell’s plant in Palmdale, California, as the Air Force band fired up the Star Trek theme music. The show’s cast was naturally invited, although somehow William Shatner missed it.

Surely he owned a fabulous leisure suit? He’s Bill Shatner!

I honestly thought Paul and Linda’s matching mullets were the be all and end all of bad hair, but George Harrison and Pattie Boyd’s matching perms totally give them a run for their money.

What say you? Which couple chose the most unfortunate coordinated coif?

I’ve been under-the-weather for the past week (not checking out the Internet much), so this Pee-wee Herman-inspired cycling skinsuit by Podium is new to me. I know it’s been posted on several websites, blogs and Twitter, but I wanted to share it here anyways for its sheer brilliance and for those of you, like me, who haven’t seen it yet.

If you’re a comedic lover, this Skinsuit is the right fit for you! Here at Podium we not only aim to meet the need of professional cyclists, but to give them a special edge, like distracting the guy behind you, and making the spectators love you. This skinsuit is made of the best quality polyester fabric mix, allowing for durability, flexibility and style…

 
You can order it at Podium for $149.99.

Joe Barber of San Antonio, Texas is a regular Leonardo da Vinci when it comes to creating art with a pair of Wahl clippers, some dye and eye liner. Unlike da Vinci though, Joe uses no paint.

Check out some of his work on his YouTube channel. Better than velvet paintings.
