Olivia Hussey Mark Lester

Actress Olivia Hussey is making a return to the big screen after a five-year hiatus to play Oliver! star Mark Lester's mother in medieval epic 1066.

The Argentina-born star, who shot to fame after playing Juliet in Franco Zeffirelli’s 1968 classic Romeo & Juliet, has been brought out of semi-retirement to play Countess Gytha in the star-studded period war film.

Announcing the casting news on Monday (21May12), 1066 director Robin Jacob tells WENN, "We are extremely happy to announce the attachment of Ms Olivia Hussey to the 1066 Project. Countess Gytha was the wife of Earl Godwin, the powerful leader of the Godwin dynasty and mother to future King Harold ll; she was an immensely strong woman who had some incredible life experiences that shaped her character.

"I believe that Olivia will bring Gytha to life, she is a tremendously versatile actress with the depth and substance that is essential to the role."

Black Christmas (1974) Review


Good
"If this picture doesn't make your skin crawl... it's on too tight!"

So went the promo tagline for Black Christmas, the 1974 cult horror classic which might have had epidermal layers on the go 30 years ago... but which feels pretty tame today.

ROMEO + JULIET star Olivia Hussey has received the coveted Mother Teresa Award for her portrayal of the late Indian humanitarian in a new film.
The actress, who also played the VIRGIN MARY in TV miniseries JESUS OF NAZARETH, received her honour from the St Bernadette Institute of Sacred Art after her new film MOTHER TERESA OF CALCUTTA was screened in Thousand Oaks, California last week (ends22SEP06).
Mother Teresa's niece, AGI BOJAXHIU, flew in from Italy to present Hussey with her award.
Bojaxhiu admits the actress' honour was well deserved: "Olivia has really expressed the spirit of Mother Teresa."

Romeo And Juliet (1968) Review


Very Good
Franco Zeffirelli's rendition of Shakespeare's classic tragic love story gets off to a slow and rocky start but eventually takes hold once its titular leads take over. The introduction of musical numbers isn't bad, though it severely dates this production to the '60s, however faithful it otherwise is as a period piece. Olivia Hussey's Juliet is the show stealer and would go on to modest success as an actress; Leonard Whiting (as Romeo), however, would quickly fade into obscurity in the following years. Winner of two Oscars and a Best Picture nominee.

The Man With Bogart's Face Review


Weak
I suppose you're either in to the Bogart private eye era or you're not, and if you're not, The Man with Bogart's Face is not going to hold a hell of a lot of appeal. Face features Sacchi, a well-known Bogart impersonator, as a retired cop who opts for cosmetic surgery to look like his matinee idol, opening a P.I. business as "Sam Marlowe." Marlowe is quickly drawn into a web of deceit involving two giant sapphires ("thaffires," as Bogie would say), including the cast of sordid characters you'd find in a certain Sam Spade mystery. What the purpose for a lifeless homage like Face is remains unclear, but the late-1970s production values, music, and costumes will probably have you giggling more than recalling your fond memories of The Maltese Falcon or The Big Sleep.
