Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben November 10, 2018

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!

November 10, 2018

The Drama League's Annual Benefit Gala at the Plaza is one of the highlights of the season. This year they honored Nathan Lane and Fran WeisslerMatthew Broderick was the host, and many distinguished guests attended. Among them were Bonnie Comley, Stewart F. Lane, Susan Stroman, Christine Baranski and many others too numerous to name. It is always a delightful evening.

MoMA is presenting Modern Matinees: Douglas Fairbanks Jr. November 1-December 28. I saw Chances, by Allan Dwan, USA, 1931, about two English brothers (Douglas Fairbanks Jr is one of them) who go off to war in 1914. They are both in love with the same lady, and we see how it is resolved. I became a friend of  Douglas Fairbanks Jr, who was charming and a perfect gentlemen; in fact, he invited me to photograph his last wedding and I attended the reception afterwards. I am delighted that MoMA is honoring him with this film series.


MoMA is presenting Catalan Cinema's Radical Years 1968-1978 through November 10. I saw L'orgia (The Orgy), by Francesc Bellmunt, Spain, 1978. It takes place in Barcelona, where a group of young people in their twenties gather together in a girl's home that she inherited from her grandmother for a weekend dedicated to smoking marijuana, drinking and an orgy of the title.

They are all attractive, and are not reluctant to bare their souls and their bodies, now that they have freedom from the repressive regime after the death of the dictator Francisco Franco. Unfortunately, they are an aimless group, and I would have liked to see them in a sequel 40 years later in their sixties ,and see how their lives turned out. It is an interesting film, with fine dialogue.


The 53rd Street Library presented  Julie and Julia , written and directed by  Nora Ephron , USA, 2009. It tells two true stories. One is how  Julia Childs  ( Meryl Streep ) went to Paris, when her husband was posted to the American Embassy. She loved to eat, and became a marvelous chef, and wrote a bestselling cookbook about French cooking. The second story in which in alternating scenes,   Julie Powell  ( Amy Adams ), inspired by Childs, begins writing  a blog, which also becomes a bestselling cookbook. The two actresses are superb. It is a funny film that will stimulate your appetite.

Founding Artistic Director Susan Charlotte presented The Lottery, by Shirley Jackson, as a Food For Thought Production at Chez Josephine, 414 West 42nd St. After a delicious lunch at the wonderful restaurant, Louise Lasser and Michael Citriniti (photo below of the two actors) headed the four member cast, directed by Antony Marsellis. It was a delightful afternoon.
