"Ah, Sharon. The word ‘exquisite’ perfectly sums up this lady. Almost otherworldly, so beautiful and sensitive, a truly gentle soul. But in no way wishy-washy, she was smart and not taken in by the shallowness of the industry. Well-grounded and natural, she was very much in tune with her life and really happy when I last saw her in London in 1969. She was such an innocent, and unspoiled by her success."
— George Harrison

"Starting in 1970 with Even Dwarfs Started Small – an anarchic tale of rebellion by a group of little people — Werner Herzog unleashed a torrent of ten films, including Nosferatu and Fitzcarraldo, that remain the heart of his achievement.
All those movies, and six later ones, are included in the tremendous new boxed-set, Herzog: The Collection. Some of them are great, others are good, and a couple are truly terrible. Yet every single one has something going on. Herzog has never been limited by anybody else’s idea of propriety, good sense, or artistic neatness. He pushes us into unsettling mental spaces that make the strange familiar and the familiar strange.”
- John Powers, reviewing Herzog: The Collection
How the “I believe in Werner Herzog” grafiti started
Words cannot explain how sad I am right now. The final link of my personal ‘Holy Classic Hollywood Trinity’ has passed away - Betty Perske, AKA, Lauren Bacall. I looked up to Lauren so much in order to be a better, stronger person. Not even Gene or Rita could fill that role for me and whenever I was feeling down and angry, I always thought of Lauren and what she would do in that situation. I take comfort in knowing that she’s with Bogie at least and that she’s so happy to be with him again and forever. I love you, Betty. May you rest in Peace 🌹❤️👑 #HelloBaby
