Minnelli Marathon #3 : The Bad and the Beautiful


Take a quick look through Vincente Minnelli's directing credits and one thing becomes clear: he only worked with the best. In his 1952 Hollywood melodrama THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, Minnelli gets a simultaneously charming and sinister performance from Kirk Douglas as a movie producer who'll do anything for his art. And - even better - Lana Turner as a starlet struggling with drink and depression.

Up next: Minnelli's "The Band Wagon" (1953)
And coming Friday, March 16th Sacred Cow - Miller's Crossing / FS Madness
