    Deborah Kerr choses freedom

    Translated from Spanish article from Fotogramas magazine – Feb. 12th 1960 For Deborah Kerr, 1960 marks the beginning of a new stage in her life. She will stay in London for about six months before making a final move to Switzerland. This summer, the actress will wed Peter Viertel, a writer. She’s made the decision to experience life in a different way and change her attitude toward her work. Deborah has returned to London from Australia where she just finished filming “The Sundowners”. We met with her in her flat in London-Square, Knightsbridge. In a room with high ceilings in which we talked about the past, the present and the…

    New DVD/ Blu-ray releases

    Always a happy surprise when I find new movie releases online. Makes me all mushy inside to think someone might discover Deborah for the first time… Someone might re-discover a film they haven’t seen in ages… Someone out there is as crazy as me and simply enjoys to collect them all adn has a new one!

    Unknown magazine – Clippings series (Incomplete)

    Unknown magazine. 60’s. Part of the “clippings series”: Articles of which I only have found random pages and are incomplete. DEBORAH KERR, like Ingrid Bergman before her, won a place in the heart of the public as a ladylike, regal human being who would never in the world violate an Emily Post dictate, let alone one of the commandments. This star won this place by virtue of the movie roles which were given to her-nuns, society matrons, teachers. She always seemed above reproach in the movies. And the public accepted this image of the woman. Now there is growing disillusionment with Deborah, who is actually an attractive, statuesque, lady-like actress who has recently found herself bogged down in a marital scandal that, considering the real…

    Confessions of a Saint and Sinner

    Movie Life – Somewhere in the 50’s. The saint or sinner question about Deborah Kerr was first raised when stories of her discovery conflicted. One account of her first meeting with Gabriel Pascal, who put her before her first movie audience in Major Barbara, has him saying, “You have a spiritual face-like a lovely Virgin!” The other has him exclaiming, “That hairdo! You look like a fallen woman!” A succession of sweet-and-pure parts — on both sides of the Atlantic — soon settled the matter for her growing public. She is, they figured, a saint. But one day a revolution struck. Deborah’s necking scenes in “From Here to Eternity” had a…
