IN A LONELY PLACE (1950): This heartbreaking noir revolves around an alcoholic screenwriter (Humphrey Bogart) and the woman who loves him but also fears that he may be a murder (Gloria Grahame). This film is both a bitter commentary on Hollywood and on the impossibility of romance. Very loosely based on Dorothy B. Hughes’s novel—an intense thriller with a chilling examination of post-WWII misogyny. Shot by the esteemed cinematographer, Burnett Guffey. Dir. Nicholas Ray

CITY OF FEAR (1959): Vince Ryker (Vince Edwards) breaks out the big house taking along what appears to be a container of heroin. Must be his lucky day. Except it’s not heroin; it’s Colbat 60 which is radioactive and his exposure to it will eventually kill him. As he tries to find a buyer for his ‘heroin’, two detectives (John Archer and Lyle Talbot) try to find him before he dies and/or cause a civil disaster. Lensed by the renowned cinematographer Lucien Ballard.  Dir. Irving Lerner

« Ce qu'il aimait par-dessus tout dans la nature, c était la mer », a dit un jour de Picasso son ancienne compagne, Françoise Gilot. Cet ouvrage témoigne de sa passion pour la mer Méditerranée et retrace la vie de l artiste sur la Riviera française où il vécu dans les années 1950 et 1960. On y retrouve des clichés de Picasso dans sa vie quotidienne sur la Côte, là où il s amusait, flirtait, peignait, faisait de la poterie.
Un volume réunissant quelques unes des plus belles images prises par les grands photographes de l époque. Parmi eux, Man Ray, Robert Capa, Edward Quinn, Lucien Clergue, Lee Miller, Robert Doisneau ou bien encore Henri Cartier-Bresson.
