"THE TIME OF CRAZY: THE DUEL FACTORY IN THE SUN"
WRITTEN BY PIERRE BERTHOMIEU
“The tragic contradictions of this prestigious meteor dazzling with eroticism continue to disturb today – the strength of classicism. - Pierre Berthomieu
Le Temps des folies is a dive into the making of Duel au soleil , dominated by the audacious producer-author David O. Selznick. From unexplored archives, multiple scripts and deleted scenes, the baroque Duel au soleil reveals itself to be the work of Selznick, King Vidor, William Dieterle or Josef Von Sternberg – harbinger of the future excesses of New Hollywood. An unpublished work accompanied by more than 50 archive photos.
