Happy Birthday Jacques Tourneur

November 12, 2009



I wasn't actually planning a post today but when I remembered that it's Grace Kelly's 80th birthday I thought that director Jacques Tourneur's 105th might get lost in the shuffle so I just wanted to give him a quick shout out...

Happy Birthday Jacques Tourneur!!

If he'd only ever directed 3 films (Cat People, I walked With a Zombie and Out of the Past) he'd still be a legend.

yay - He's one of my favourite directors - both on Film and on TV...

Great image; that's one of the most indescribably creepy sequences in cinema. For his Lewton work alone he's one of the greats, nevermind that he also made Out of the Past.

I desperately need to see more Tourneur films! Great that you highlighted him on his birthday!

He wasn't my favourite director to emerge from Val Lewton's team, but I still love a lot of his films! Happy birthday to Jacques!

And happy birthday to you too, Kate!
