Another movie & music paring projects.The Barefoot Contessa is a 1954 drama film written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz about the life and loves of fictional Spanish sex symbol Maria Vargas. It stars Humphrey Bogart, and in my opinion the most beautiful film actress of all time Ava Gardner. Hope you like it. If you get the chance to watch the actual film and just mute the sound and play this mix as the score instead. It is how it was recorded and I had a blast doing it live at BLUE FOX THE BAR, KEMPINSKI HOTEL BUDAPEST.
THE FILM: Down on his luck movie director and writer Harry Dawes (Humphrey Bogart) is reduced to working for abusive, emotionally stunted business tycoon Kirk Edwards (Warren Stevens), who has decided he wants to produce a film to stroke his big ego. Looking for a fresh leading lady, they discover, in a Madrid night club, stunning dancer Maria Vargas (Ava Gardner). She goes to Hollywood and becomes a star & marries a Count but is there happily ever after?
