Letter from an Unknown Woman [16mm]

directed by Max Ophüls starring Joan Fontaine, Louis Jourdan (1948)

In perhaps the finest American film from the famed European director Max Ophüls, Joan Fontaine and Louis Jourdan star in this lush romantic tragedy of a Viennese woman’s lifelong infatuation with a callous concert pianist.

Set in 1900, Fontaine plays a young girl who falls in love with her neighbor, a budding pianist. Years later she meets again her only love, but he fails to remember her. Ophüls crafts a moody atmosphere rich in period detail while Fontaine and Jourdan fascinate onscreen.
