Kenneth Anger, “Puce Moment” (1949)

A lavishly colored evocation of the Hollywood now gone, as shown through an afternoon in the milieu of a 1920’s film star. “Puce Moment” is a fragment from an abandoned film project entitled “Puce Woman.” The soundtrack used here is the second one: the first was the overture to Verdi’s “I Villi.” The film reflects Anger’s concerns with the myths and decline of Hollywood as well as with the ritual of dressing with the movement from the interior to the exterior and with color and sound synchronization.
