The ac­tress play­ing an ac­tress

Pasatiempo - - NEWS -

At seventy-two, Bri­tish ac­tress Jac­que­line Bisset is cel­e­brat­ing over 50 years of moviemak­ing, in­clud­ing films with di­rec­tors Ge­orge Cukor, John Hus­ton, and François Truf­faut. The Santa Fe In­de­pen­dent Film Fes­ti­val hon­ors Bisset with a Life­time Achieve­ment Award at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter on Satur­day, Oct. 22. The fest also screens two films in which she plays, of all things, an ac­tress: Truf­faut’s comedic love poem to movies, Day for Night (1973), and a spoof, The Last Film Fes­ti­val (2016). While pre­par­ing for a role, “You have to learn to for­get about your­self to a large de­gree,” Bisset told Pasatiempo. But Jac­que­line, how could we ever for­get you? On the cover is an im­age of the ac­tress in the late 1960s.
