The Cinema Of Juliette Gréco - Juliette Gréco

The Cinema Of Juliette Gréco

Bohemian, existentialist, Left Bank and cafe society, Juliette Gréco has no real counterparts in English and American culture. She is one of the few genuine icons of popular music - one who speaks across the generations to anyone who struggles beneath the dead weight of orthodoxy and convention.

Figures from our own culture who seem to share something of Gréco’s dark, mysterious and sensuous relationship with the world mostly singers from a later period such as Nico, Scott Walker and even Tom Waits - artists who observed and celebrated society s outsiders and were sensitive to both the romance and the tragedy of their plight. Beginning in 1950 in Cocteau’s surrealist masterpiece Orphée, the young Gréco distinguished herself as both an actor and singer in a broad range of films on both sides of the Atlantic; Darryl F. Zanuck s production of Ernest Hemmingway’s The Sun Also Rises, Bonjour Tristesse directed by Otto Preminger (starring David Niven, Deborah Kerr, and Jean Seberg), Jean Renoir s Elena et les homes and John Huston s The Roots of Heaven with Orson Welles, filmed on location in the terrible 140 degree heat of French Equatorial Africa.

Our edition includes the themes sung by Juliette Gréco and the complete soundtracks of both The Sun Also Rises by Hugo Friedhofer and Malcolm Arnold s outstanding score for The Roots of Heaven; the original recordings which are here made available on a digital format for the first time.
