‘The Tarnished Angels’
January 23, 2013 – January 25, 2013, 1:30 pm
The closest that cultivated emigré Douglas Sirk would come to making a European art film in Hollywood was The Tarnished Angels (1958), a svelte adaptation of William Faulkner’s Pylon. This tale of itinerant stunt fliers is iconic, morbid, and stocked with symbols—it’s a shadowy danse macabre rather than Written on the Wind’s gaudy mambo of desire.
