LETTER FROM AN UNKNOWN WOMAN (1948)
"By the time you read this letter I may be dead." Having longed for Viennese concert pianist Louis Jourdan from afar for many years, headstrong young Joan Fontaine enjoys one night of passion with her idol, followed by a lifetime of melancholic remembrances and heartbreaking missed connections. As recounted in her letter, their paths crossed many more times than the callow maestro ever knew. One of Max Ophüls' true masterpieces: hypnotically constructed, achingly romantic and impressively tragic. DIR Max Ophüls; SCR Howard Koch, from the novel by Stefan Zweig; PROD John Houseman. U.S., 1948, b&w, 86 min. NOT RATED
