  • Bunny Lake Is Missing

    1965. Great Britain. Directed by Otto Preminger. Screenplay by John Mortimer, Penelope Mortimer, based on the novel by Evelyn Piper. With Keir Dullea, Carol Lynley, Noel Coward, Martita Hunt, Laurence Olivier. While the Viennese-born Preminger was not a native-born Yank, few directors had so successfully negotiated the American moviemaking system. In keeping with Preminger’s peripatetic reputation, this film shows him to be a master at extracting extraordinary performances from a wide range of British acting talent. Although Bunny Lake anticipates Clint Eastwood’s The Changeling, it is first and foremost a reminder of Preminger’s brilliant noir period at Twentieth Century-Fox. 107 min.
