Friends at Harper’s Bazaar had their skates on this morning. On the heels of Michel Hazanavicius beating Martin Scorcese at last night’s Academy Awards for Best Director bragging rights for his equally praised “The Artist,” which took the ceremony’s top honor as Best Film of the year, the magazine unveiled just minutes ago a portfolio appearing in the April issue inspired by the film and created in collaboration with Michel.
The newly minted Oscar-winning French director conjurs a narrative where love casts a spell in a feature called “What’s In a Mime?” Photographed by Max Farago in black and white, it “stars” Georgia May Jagger and Jean Reno.
Another tie-in that the folks at Bazaar didn’t consider this morning? The show’s host Billy Crystal’s line in “This is Spinal Tap”—hands down one of my favorite quotes ever, undoubtedly, when it comes to the this particularly silent theatrical medium: “Mime is money.”
