LUST FOR LIFE, the 50s movie now on video was purchased from Baker and
Taylor, book vendors. The movie was based on a novel by Irving Stone I
think. There was another historical novel about the same time, THE AGONY
AND THE ECSTACY, about Michelangelo. This was the source of another movie
which I think 9th graders would enjoy, but I haven't been able to find it
on video. If anyone knows where to get it, please, let me know. (I'm
almost afraid to write what I have to tell you next because I'm unsure of
spelling and I'm not going to search around for the correct ones now. Oh,
what the heck, here goes...) My advanced students have benefited from
SURVIVING PICCASO, in French but with subtitles-CAMILLE (I can't remember
if Claudell was part of the title), and BASQUIOTTE. They also were
thrilled to get to see a live version of Steve Martin's play about a
fictious meeting between Piccaso and Einstein with a little Elvis on the
side. I can't seem to remember the title now. There best event this year
was when all 130 got to spend the day at the High Museum's Piccaso Exhibit.
