Dear Shaded Viewers,
I was lucky enough to attend a private screening of the documentary on Robert Mitchum directed by Bruce Weber. “Nice Girls Don’t Stay for Breakfast“. It is a portrait of the classic Hollywood antihero, Robert Mitchum. Tonight was a book signing and a photo installation but by the time I got to Agnes B the books were sold out. I did have a few minutes to chat with Bruce and, like I said, I loved the documentary and I think you will too.
For those of you that don’t know who Robert Mitchum is, I bet you know the famous tattoo from Charles Laughton’s film The Night of the Hunter: the letters “L-O-V-E” are tattooed on the fingers of his right hand, and the letters “H-A-T-E” are on the fingers of his left hand.
Watch the teaser “Nice Girls Don’t Stay for Breakfast” and enjoy the photos. February 27th the film will be released in France and this is the first theatrical release in the world.
