Truf­faut, one of the founders of French New Wave, on the set of 1973’s Day for Night, with his star Jacque­line Bis­set. 2 Mar­lon Brando with Ber­tolucci on the set of 1972’s Last Tango in Paris. The erotic film landed an X rat­ing (for an in­fa­mous rape scene), and it was a hot topic from the mo­ment the pro­duc­tion be­gan. Long lines formed at ev­ery art house cin­ema where it played, and critic Pauline Kael wrote, “This is a movie peo­ple will be ar­gu­ing about for as long as there are movies.” 3 Mike Ni­chols di­rects Art Gar­funkel in a scene from the 1970 black com­edy Catch-22— Sereny’s first job as a set pho­tog­ra­pher.

4 Werner Herzog in the Dutch city of Delft, dur­ing the film­ing of 1979’s Nos­fer­atu the

Vampyre. Truf­faut had pro­claimed Herzog “the most im­por­tant di­rec­tor alive.” He posed with a hawk. “I have no idea why,” says Sereny. “He was much more into mice.” 5 Fellini him­self ap­plies makeup to Don­ald Suther­land, the star of his 1976 film

Casanova, as the makeup artist ob­serves. “His at­ten­tion to de­tail was as­tound­ing,” says Sereny of the leg­endary film­maker.
