A wonderful Q&A with Keir and Gary at the TIFF for a retrospective on the films of Stanley Kubrick focusing in on 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. I love the interplay between them. It’s so natural and so cute of two men who have been friends forever. Once again Keir tells us about his airlock scene, and the dialogue Stanley didn’t use in the film. I loved Keir’s comment about Alzheimer’s. Proves at 78 he’s still got his faculties all in place. I just adored this talk. Thanks to my home country of Canada and the great city of Toronto for hosting this and for inviting two of the most underrated actors alive to discuss this great film. Now if they could only do a respective of the films of Ridley Scott, I’d be real happy. The did briefly mention Keir’s reprisal of Dave Bowman in the Peter Hayams sequel 2010: ODYSSEY TWO. My only gripe would have to be the Q&A wasn’t long enough. Of course I’m a little bit selfish. I could listen to Keir speak non-top. I love his voice.

BLACK CHRISTMAS as been chosen by The Chicago Film Critics’ Association as one of the scariest films of all time. It made number 49 in the list, though I would have placed it higher due to how much it influenced films in the genre such as Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, Saw, etc. For me personally, I’d have put it higher on the list. But then no one asked me, right?

This is exciting. Keir’s films are slowly coming out on Blu Ray. This time it’s BUNNY LAKE IS MISSING. The extras are a bit thin, but the real bummer is there’s an audio commentary that Keir is not on. I loved his and Gary Lockwood’s (Frank Poole) on 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Too bad they couldn’t get him for this one. Read on.

Blu-ray Release: Bunny Lake is Missing

Blu-ray Release Date: Nov. 11, 2014
Price: Blu-ray $29.95
Studio: Twilight Time

The mystery-thriller movie Bunny Lake is Missing (1965) offers viewers director Otto Preminger’s (Skidoo) dark view of a London less swinging than it is sinister.
Bunny Lake is Missing movie scene

Carol Lynley in Bunny Lake is Missing

Bunny’s script by John and Penelope Mortimer presents a dodgy kind of thriller, in which the central damsel in distress (Carol Lynley, Harlow)—a mother who claims that her child has been snatched from school—may be mad, joining the ranks of eccentrics who surround her.

The film also stars Keir Dullea (2001: A Space Odyssey) as the heroine’s devoted brother, and Laurence Olivier (Richard III) as a steady-on police inspector, giving one of the more sneakily larcenous performances of his illustrious career. The whole movie is wrapped in a seductive score by Paul Glass, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

This Twilight Time is the Blu-ray debut of Bunny Lake is Missing and contains the following special features:

• Isolated score track
• Audio commentary with film historians Lem Dobbs, Julie Kirgo, and Nick Redman
• Original theatrical trailers
• Liner notes by Julie Kirgo

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, the time to order your Blu-ray discs directly from distributor Screen Archives is NOW!

I’ll just repost the article. No sense in a preamble when the article says it so much better. Wait! Wasn’t this a pramble? Nevermind.

Black Bear Fest welcomes Keir Dullea

By GREG WATRY
gwatry@njherald.com

MILFORD, Pa. — The lineup for the 15th annual Black Bear Film Festival, which kicks off Friday, Oct. 17 and ends Sunday, Oct. 19, promises to provide attendees with a variety of film choices. From science fiction selections, such as “Under The Skin” starring Scarlett Johansson, to comedy-dramas, such as Jon Favreau’s “Chef,” attendees are sure to find something to satiate their film tastes.

But the festival is also a venue for guest speakers from the film and entertainment world. Both the main stage, and the free Black Bear Film Festival Salon, which will be held Oct. 18 and 19 at the Pike County Public Library, will feature speakers and give attendees a glimpse into the world behind the screen.

Following a showing of the 1965 film “Bunny Lake Is Missing,” at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, an interview will be held with one of the film’s stars Keir Dullea.

Well-known for his role as David Bowman in Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey,” Dullea plays Steven Lake, the uncle of a four-year-old girl who goes missing in the film. With the assistance of Inspector Newhouse, played by Laurence Olivier, the group searches for missing Bunny Lake, whose very existence comes into question.

“You find out that my character is a bit of a nutcase,” Dullea teased when reached by phone on Thursday.

The film was shot in London, a city that Dullea expressed an affinity for. However, filming was a different story.

“It was one of the worst experiences I ever had with a director,” Dullea said of working with Otto Preminger. “He loved to scream at people and humiliate them.”

On a day off from shooting, Dullea went to a funfair close to the River Thames. He decided to get his palm read. The palm reader asked if Dullea was an engineer or a mathematician because he saw a rocket ship in his future.

About a week later Dullea’s wife told him to call his agent, who had some big news. He’d just been offered the lead in Kubrick’s newest film.

At the time, “I was a Kubrick fan,” Dullea said. “I just couldn’t believe it.”

He described Kubrick as the quiet type, who never raised his voice. “When you were around Kubrick, you knew you were in the presence of genius,” he said. “It was magical.”

While he doesn’t consider 2001 the peak of his career, Dullea said, “I’m an important cog in a beautiful piece of machinery.”

He still attends many events focused on the film. In November, Dullea will travel to Toronto for a special showing of the film by the Toronto International Film Festival. On Nov. 28, the British Film Institute will re-release the picture nationwide, and Dullea is traveling to London for the event. “It seems to have a never-ending life,” Dullea said of the film many people call a masterpiece.

Dullea first became interested in acting as a young boy. Stricken with rheumatic fever, he couldn’t participate in sports. Instead, he focused inwards.

Acting “gave me the opportunity to escape from myself into various roles,” he said. Eventually, he began to appreciate acting as an art form.

He pursued roles while he attended the George School, a boarding school in Bucks County, Pa.

“The human persona is like a rainbow,” Dullea said. Acting gives you “the opportunity to explore a different color than you usually have.”

Eventually, Dullea hitchhiked from the East Coast to San Francisco, where he worked as a carpenter while attending San Francisco State College. A visit from his parents prompted Dullea to consider pursuing his passion of acting, which they supported. He moved to New York City where he was told the best acting teachers were. His lead role in the 1962 film “David and Lisa” launched his career, Dullea contends.

This isn’t Dullea’s first time attending the Black Bear Film Festival. Last year he attended the event because he was in the film “Isn’t It Delicious,” which was part of the festival’s lineup.

“We enjoyed the people very much at this particular film festival,” he said.

“Out of the blue, they invited me back this year,” Dullea said. “It’s kind of like coming back to a familiar place.”

Jerry Beaver, founder of the festival and part-time Milford area resident, can’t help but wonder at the growth of his festival as it hits a milestone 15th year.

“It’s quite amazing that in a small town things last more than one or two years,” Beaver said during a recent press event to announce this year’s films. “In my mind, the Black Bear Film Festival is now a regional film festival. It’s not a local film festival, because the people coming from 100 miles away spend the weekend here. They’re staying in hotels, or bed and breakfasts; they are eating in the restaurants.”

The Black Bear Film Festival kicks off on Friday night with a gala at 6 p.m., at St. Patrick’s Church in Milford, Pa. The film “Chef” will be shown at 8 p.m.

Main stage films will be shown at the Milford Theatre, located on Catharine Street.

A complete schedule for the film festival can be found at www.BlackBearFilm.com. Tickets can also be bought on the website. Individual film tickets cost $10. A gold pass costs $150.

“There is a lot to be said about this being our 15th year,” Beaver said in a statement. “We are fortunate enough to be able to continue to celebrate the art of independent film — from the writers and actors to directors and the producers — and this year we really wanted the films to be special. We truly hope that festival-goers enjoy this year’s festival as much as we have had putting it together.”

This film sort of slipped in under the wire, though I know all us Keir Dullea fans knew of it. SPACE STATION 76 is a farcical look at the space opera. It pulls from various sources including most of the science fiction films and television series of the era including my favourite show Space: 1999, Buck Rogers, Star Wars, and likely even Keir’s films 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY and 2010: ODYSSEY TWO where he played the part of Commander Dave Bowman. Here Keir’s part is largely a cameo playing Liv Tyler’s father, Mr. Marlowe. His scene comes about forty minutes into the film where he’s only seen on a small monitor attached to a contemporary touch-tone phone. It’s really kind of funny. And the part that gets me is his appearance is reminiscent of his first scene in the Peter Hyams aforementioned film 2010: THE YEAR WE MAKE CONTACT. Yeah, I know I called it Odyssey Two, but that’s the title I like to call it by. Below is a side-by-side comparison of Keir then and now.
