51st Directors’ Fortnight May 15-25, 2019


Fortnight 1973, Feature film, 102'


A cynical look at the life of a not so nice country-western singer, Maury Dann – played by Rip Torn in one of his most memorable performances. He ruthlessly manipulates every one around him to suit his selfish needs…he even gets his limo driver to take the blame for the death of a fan which he stabbed.


Daryl Duke

Member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (Directors Branch). As a TV director he worked with Canada’s CBC station. Began career as an editor with Canada’s National Film Board in the early 50s.
