" Oh, you remember the awful things they said about what’s-her-name before she jumped out the window? There. You see? I can’t even remember her name so who cares?"

What appealed to me in the idea of Summertime? Loneliness. Why? Because I think that loneliness is in all of us, it is a more common emotion than love, but we speak less about it. We are ashamed of it. We think perhaps that it shows a deficiency in ourselves. That if we were more attractive, more entertaining and less ordinary we would not be lonely.
The film is about a lonely woman who falls in love, and as I know no better remedy for the complaint I hope you will find it sympathetic.

For any Anton fans who live in and around New York, MOMA’s upcoming Vienna Unveiled: A City in Cinema has screenings of three (THREE!!!) Anton films set in Vienna: La Ronde, Maskerade and Oh…Rosalinda!!
That sound you hear is us sobbing into our tea because we don’t live in New York.
Maskerade on the big screen! *flails*. OH ROS! OH ROS ON THE BIG SCREEN!
Anyone lucky enough to go, if you survive, let us know what kind of print Oh Ros is, would you? (They’ve borrowed it from the BFI who do tend to have some really shabby prints in their archive).
