  • A Bill of Divorcement

    1940. USA. Directed by John Farrow. With Adolphe Menjou. In Dalí's 1937 essay "Surrealism in Hollywood," he writes, "Adolphe Menjou's moustache is Surrealist." Dalí considered Menjou to be a "spectre"—a figure that does not absorb light, but shines with inherent luminosity. Menjou's own well-waxed moustache denoted his specific cinematic persona and did not require further identification. Dalí applauded such standardization in popular culture. 74 min.
