Fedora - The Masters of Cinema Series Blu-ray
Starring William Holden, Marthe Keller, José Ferrer, Mario Adorf, Henry Fonda, Michael York
Directed by Billy Wilder
Billy Wilder co-writes and directs this drama starring William Holden and Marthe Keller.
The film follows Hollywood producer Barry 'Dutch' Detweiler (Holden) as he tries to persuade the reclusive, Polish actress Fedora (Keller) to come out of retirement to star in his adaptation of Tolstoy's 'Anna Karenina'.
Two weeks later she commits suicide leaving Dutch to reminisce over the short time he spent with her in her remote villa in Corfu where she lived with Countess Sobryanski (Hildegard Knef), her assistant Miss Balfour (Frances Sternhagen) and plastic surgeon Dr Vando (José Ferrer).
Although he was unsuccessful in his attempts to draw the ageing star out of retirement, Dutch isn't able to bury the matter and accuses the Countess and Dr Vando of driving Fedora to despair and attempts to uncover the true reasons behind her death.
