Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Re: Lady Chatterley

I'll take back some of what I said in my previous post. While we did read D. H. Lawrence in Lit class, it was not his Lady Chatterley's Lover, but his somewhat less controversial Sons and Lovers, which itself was made into a film in 1960.

D. H. Lawrence was twice depicted on film in the 1980's.
1st 1981 in Priest of Love with Ian McKellen as Lawrence.
2nd 1985 in Coming Through with Kenneth Branagh as Lawrence.

I have not seen neither film, nor have I ever seen 1960's Sons and Lovers.

5. Eat and drink
4 times so far + 6 previous times = 10 times we have people eating and drinking.

6. Fireplace
He just realized that's a gas log fireplace, but, it certainly burns whatever you toss into it.

7. Hard hats
Better safe than sorry, when spelunking. Wear a hard hat, but why is it only the men who are wearing them? Is that because the women in the film have harder heads?

8. Housecoat
"Where's the housecoat?" As Kevin steps out of the tub. "That's okay. I'll just wrap a towel around me."
One does not see any sign of the housecoat, that Kevin was wearing, earlier in the film, when he's in the tub.
And note that as the film progresses, Kevin gets more and more naked.
From scout uniform with hat and knapsack,
To scout uniform without hat and knapsack,
To housecoat, with Kevin probably naked underneath it,
To totally nudity, while he is in the tub.

To be continued . . .

Well, how was it? And how faithful was it to D. H. Lawrence's novel?

As part of the course on D. H. Lawrence in college, we read his Lady Chatterley's Lover, but, I have never seen any of the adaptations onto film. Not even Ken's.

1. Bed site light next to James' bed. Note that it is in the shape of a sexual object.

2. Bust in the hallway. It is not that of the Rebel Roman Emperor. It is probably that of the 1st Roman Emperor Augustus Caesar.

3. Candles. How many times does the power go out at D'ampton Manor? Not only a bed site light by James' bed, but also candles. Or, is James a belt and braces man?

4. Earrings. Sylvia, when in James' dream sequence on the plane, changes her earrings from what she was wearing to something more similar to what Eve and Mary are wearing.

Eve and Mary, Amanda and Ken

Eve and Mary
1. He has always been confused in the scene where both Eve and Mary are flight attendant--till now. Mary is the 1st one seen wearing a flight attendant uniform, and then we have Eve in a flight attendant uniform.

Amanda and Ken
1. Even with the sound muted, Amanda turns in a tour de force performance as Sylvia in the film, especially in her scenes with James.
2. Which shows that Ken can get a performance out of the unlikeliest actors, such as Amanda. Which is why Lisztomania is such a disappointment, as of all this films to date that I have seen, I consider that to be the one with the worst acting.

As a side note . . .
The scene with Lady Proxima, the Grandalid, in Solo : a Star Wars Story is inspired in part by both the book and the film "Lair of the White Worm."

Next time: a miscellany of observations.
