what goes around
in the performance of a lifetime, dirk bogarde brought as much class and emotional stress to 'death in venice' as director visconti brought beauty to every detail. in the painful scene of the ailing musician giving himself up to the administrations of the hairdresser, dirk exited the parlour with great dignity, his pleasure mixed with bafflement.
i am not the least bit surprised that fashion designer john galliano was inspired by that movie.
