"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious - the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science."
-- Albert Einstein

(This is an image I found a few hours ago of an empty street outside the Rivoli Theater in New York at the time Ophuls' "Letter from an Unknown Woman", one of the most beautiful films ever made in this country, opened in April, 1948. I've been feeling extremely depressed today, I'll confess, but seeing this has relieved it slightly. And I don't know why. I thought I'd share it with you all nevertheless)

Cheer up, bunky! I agree, a wonderfully filmed masterpiece, with Fontaine's performance a huge plus. Was she ever better?
