hall of dames - faye dunaway
i would like to take this opportunity to induct the sultry and savvy miss Faye Dunaway into my Hall of Dames, as much for her intelligent, often brave performances as an actress, as for her undeniable and interminable vivacity as a human being. Dame Faye brought sizzle and spark to several of the greatest films of the 60s & 70s, starting with her breakout role in Bonnie & Clyde. her performances in films like Chinatown, Network & Barfly remain distinct and meaningful in the memories of many, and some of her more recent roles shine just as brightly for those who search them out (Arizona Dream being my personal favourite, a film i highly recommend to anyone who hasn't yet had the pleasure).
