Briget Bardot's wig:
Laura Harring's (on your right) wig:
The shadow dancing in Contempt:
The shadow dancing in Mulholland Drive:
Three other, more obvious, similarities:
1. Both films end with the word "silencio" spoken.
2. Both films have a fractured love story at the center.
3. Both films are about Hollywood.
However, like most of my self-excited revelations... somebody else got there before me.
From the Lost on Mulholland Drive web site:
*Camille (in Contempt) gets into an early 60's convertible with a film producer who makes a pass at her - Camilla (in Mulholland Drive) gets into an 40's convertible with a film director who kisses her.
*Contempt is a French film, partly made by American money - Mulholland Dr. is an American film, partly made by French money.
*The Contempt poster is reminiscent of Camilla's photo résumé.
*Camille wraps herself in large red towel after her bath just as Rita does after her shower.
*Both, Camilla and Camille get into a near-to-impossible car crash.
So... if you get bored this Easter weekend, pop in both films and see for yourself... or, don't see, and laugh me off as a idiot with too much time on his hands!
I LOVE MOVIES!!!!
