Adventures in European Filmmaking #49


On the set of The Passenger, Maria Schneider stares ahead and Jack Nicholson hangs his head low, humming one of the five easy pieces for piano he knows, while Michelangelo Antonioni gives the two direction down to the last detail. Jack asks Maria, "What'd he just say?" She responds, "Drive, he said."

And let me guess, they had Iggy Pop's The Passenger on the 8-track? (

And before anybody busts me for posting an anacronism, I am aware that the Passenger film was made in 1975 while the Passenger song wasn't released until 1977).
