  Grace Kelly - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Her next film, Mogambo (1953), was a drama set in the Kenyan jungle which centers on the love triangle portrayed by Kelly, Clark Gable, and Ava Gardner.
While it was being filmed, she engaged in a brief affair with co-star Bing Crosby, which was kept quiet to protect both their reputations.
In the 1956 film The Swan, Kelly starred in the role of a princess, alongside Alec Guinness and Louis Jourdan.

 UCLA Film & Television Archive - Collections - Jean Renoir
His first film, LA FILLE DE L'EAU (1925) THE WHIRLPOOL OF FATE, and other silent films display early signs of what was to become characteristic of Renoir's work--a sense of visual realism, the love of nature and the poetic representation of the physical environment.
Film theorist Andre Bazin praised Renoir's early works for their modest use of camera movement and editing and emphasis on deep focus photography.
The film was made in Technicolor, and Renoir used this to explore the texture of the Indian landscape and culture.

Kodak discontinued the manufacture of nitrate base in 1951, and the industry transitioned entirely to safety film in 1951 in the United States and by 1955 internationally.
Film is also classified according to its width and the arrangement of its sprocket holes—a range of gauges from 8mm to 70mm or more, single-perf or double-perf configurations.

 National Review: The way they are - House Un-American Activities hearings of 1951 in film; new liberal Hollywood
Guilty by Suspicion is the first film that uses the Committee hearings as emblematic of the indignities that Washington inflicts on Hollywood.
In 1951 Polonsky had been a screenwriter-with Body and Soul, starring John Garfield, to his credit-and a Communist Party member who chose to plead the Fifth Amendment.
By 1951 so many Communists had already been named that it was highly unlikely that Merrill could come up with a fresh face to add to the roster.

 Knock / Guy Lefranc / Louis Jouvet / 1951 / Film review
Jouvet had previous played the part of Knock in a film of 1933 (which the Jouvet co-directed) and also on stage in 1923 and 1933.
The film’s most noticeable weakness is its static feel, making it resemble little more than a filmed play.
Fortunately, the calibre of Jouvet’s performance and the quality of the script more than compensate for that and the end result is a deliciously cruel satire on the mutually parasitic relationship between the doctor and his patients.

 The Hindu : dated May 9, 1951: Film on Gandhi
McEldowney said he might still do the film but build it around the almost legendary Gandhi personality showing his effect and impact on India's millions and on the course of world history.
One well-known film actor wrote and pleaded for the part, explaining that he had studied Mahatma Gandhi's teaching for many years and would be willing to appear in the picture for a minimum salary.
The producer was presently engaged in a wide hunt to find colour film showing the Mahatma in the years before the assassination.

 Amazon.com: DVD: Show Boat (1951)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
This 1951 version cuts down the role of Joe and all but eliminates the Queenie character (who actually had a fairly substantial role on stage).
The film does not concentrate too much on the miseries of the South, but happens to lightly touch upon miscegenation that occurred in American society during the nineteenth century.
After that scene, we do not hear from Julie again until near the end of the film where she is unfortunately and ironically portrayed as a fallen star that gains comfort with alcohol.
