In Memoriam

Joel Schumacher, 1939-2020

The New York-born filmmaker worked in costume design and screenwriting before directing films that drew a wide variety of reactions but nonetheless became part of pop culture, from his campy Batman installments to St. Elmo's Fire, The Lost Boys, Falling Down, and The Client.

Nicholas and Alexandra

Directed by Franklin J. Schaffner

Historical Epic, Biopic [feature] - Rated PG - 190 Minutes - 1971

In this 1971 Academy Award-winning film, the cinematography of Freddie Young contrasts the pomp and ceremony of the Russian court of Czar Nicholas II and his beloved wife, Czarina Alexandra, with the misery and despair of the czar's poverty-stricken subjects. Although the film's three-hour length and methodical development displeased many critics, aficionados of history, epic spectacle, and larger-than-life characters may find this production an exciting journey through an age in turmoil.
