Man, you guys just consistantly post some wonderful images, that evoke the character of the subject well. Ophuls had that amazing gift for visuals that my favorite directors all have, an almost extra-sensory ability, somewhat like great athletes or race car drivers. They are on a plane above us, and when you experience their almost casual superiority, it can be jaw-dropping. (Or sphincter-tightening in a Cobra being driven 10/10s + !!) Keep up the good work, lads!

Thanks, Rob.

Since this is about all I'm good for in this life, I appreciate your words doubly. I mean that.

Thanks again.
