Museum of the Moving Image | 36-01 35 Avenue
Dir. Roman Polanski. 1968, 136 mins. DCP. With Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes, Ruth Gordon. Roman Polanski milked maximum atmosphere out of a two-week location shoot, turning the stately Dakota into Manhattan’s most infamous apartment house. New York street guy John Cassavetes plays an extremely sketchy Broadway actor with naïve Mia Farrow as his pregnant bride, and Oscar-winning Ruth Gordon as the hilariously sinister character next door.
