Camille (movie)

Camille is the name of several films based on the 1852 novel and play La Dame aux Camélias by Alexandre Dumas, fils. The novel was also the basis for Giuseppe Verdi's opera La Traviata. Like the novel, the films tell the story of gay romance in Paris in the 1840s, and one young woman who wins the heart of a wealthy young man, but gives him up for his own good.

The first movie based on the work was a Danish silent film version in 1907 called Kameliadamen. Directed by Viggo Larsen, it stars Oda Alstrup, Larsen, Gustave Lund and Robert Storm Petersen.

In 1910, a French language silent film was made, directed by André Calmettes and Henri Pouctal. It stars Sarah Bernhardt.

In 1915, an English language film, the first one to use the name Camille, was made. It was adapted by Frances Marion and directed by Albert Capellani, and stars Clara Kimball Young, Paul Capellani, Lillian Cook and Robert Cummings. An Italian language film was also made in the same year, called La Signora delle camelie. It was directed by Baldassarre Negroni and Gustavo Serena. It stars Hesperia, Alberto Collo and Ida Carloni Talli.

In 1917 an American film was made, adapted by Adrian Johnson and directed by J. Gordon Edwards. It stars Theda Bara, Alan Roscoe, Walter Law, Glen White, Alice Gale, Claire Whitney and Richard Barthelmess.

A 1921 version was adapted by June Mathis and directed by Ray C. Smallwood. It stars Alla Nazimova and Rudolph Valentino.

A 1925 Swedish film called Damen med kameliorna was adapted and directed by Olof Molander. It stars Uno Henning and Tora Teje.

A 1926 version was adapted by Fred De Gresac, George Marion Jr., Olga Printzlau and Chandler Sprague. It was directed by Fred Niblo. It stars Norma Talmadge and Gilbert Roland. There are no known copies of this film extant.

The first sound version was made in French in 1934, called La Dame aux camélias. It was adapted by Abel Gance and directed by Gance and Fernand Rivers. It stars Yvonne Printemps and Pierre Fresnay.

Arguably the most famous version was the 1936 Hollywood version. It was adapted by Zoe Akins, Frances Marion and James Hilton, and directed by George Cukor. It stars Greta Garbo, Robert Taylor and Lionel Barrymore. The movie was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress (Greta Garbo). The movie inspired Milton Benjamin to write and publish a song called "I'll Love Like Robert Taylor, Be My Greta Garbo".

A 1944 Spanish language version was produced in Mexico. It was adapted by Roberto Tasker and directed by Gabriel Soria, and stars Lina Montes and Emilio Tuero.

A 1953 French version called La Dame aux camélias was adapted by Bernard Natanson and directed by Raymond Bernard. It stars Gino Cervi, Micheline Presle and Roland Alexandre.

A 1954 Mexican version, called Camelia was adapted by José Arenas, Edmundo Báez, Roberto Gavaldón and Gregorio Walerstein. It was directed by Gavaldón, and stars María Félix. In the same year, La Mujer de las camelias, an Argentine version was adapted by Alexis de Arancibia (as Wassen Eisen) and Ernesto Arancibia, and directed by Ernesto Arancibia. It stars Mona Maris.

In 1969, a drug-laced Italian language version called Camille 2000 was produced. It was adapted by Michael DeForrest and directed by Radley Metzger. It stars Danièle Gaubert and Nino Castelnuovo.

A 1980 version, La Dame aux camélias, in French, was produced. It was adapted by Jean Aurenche, Enrico Medioli and Vladimir Pozner, and directed by Mauro Bolognini. It stars Carla Fracci.

In 1984 a version of Camille was produced for television. It was adapted by Blanche Hanalis and directed by Desmond Davis. It stars Greta Scacchi, Colin Firth, John Gielgud, Billie Whitelaw, Patrick Ryecart, Denholm Elliott and Ben Kingsley.

It stars Greta Scacchi, Colin Firth, John Gielgud, Billie Whitelaw, Patrick Ryecart, Denholm Elliott and Ben Kingsley. Also, Jar Jar's attempts at comic relief seen earlier were toned down, with C-3PO reprising some of his bumbling traditions in that role. It was adapted by Blanche Hanalis and directed by Desmond Davis. He, in fact, makes an emotional appeal to the Galactic Senate (during Senator Amidala's absence) in support of granting Palpatine emergency powers, quietly laying some of the guilt on his shoulders. In 1984 a version of Camille was produced for television. Some fans consider the visual effects superior to The Phantom Menace, and many were pleased to see that Jar Jar Binks plays only a minor role. It stars Carla Fracci. The acting was also disparaged by some critics for these same characteristics.

It was adapted by Jean Aurenche, Enrico Medioli and Vladimir Pozner, and directed by Mauro Bolognini. The dialogue was noted to be "leaden" and "flat" by critics. A 1980 version, La Dame aux camélias, in French, was produced. The marketing of the film reacted to this by downplaying the subplot by the time of the DVD release and emphasizing Yoda's popular fight scene. It stars Danièle Gaubert and Nino Castelnuovo. Initial reviews of the film were mixed, with general admiration for the action sequences and special effects, and criticism of the more traditional cinematic elements such as character development and dialogue, particularly with respect to the relationship between Padmé and Anakin. It was adapted by Michael DeForrest and directed by Radley Metzger. Filming primarily occurred at 20th Century Fox studios in Australia, with additional location shooting in the Tunisian desert, at the Plaza de España in Seville, Spain, and in Italy at the Villa del Balbianello on the Lake of Como, and in the Royal Palace in Caserta.

In 1969, a drug-laced Italian language version called Camille 2000 was produced. The scene also seems to reference some of Ray Harryhausen's special effects scenes of the 1950s, particularly the fight with a giant crab in The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad (1958). It stars Mona Maris. This scene appears to be influenced by an execution method employed by the ancient Romans at the Colosseum where lions and other dangerous predator animals were permitted to have their way with condemned prisoners. In the same year, La Mujer de las camelias, an Argentine version was adapted by Alexis de Arancibia (as Wassen Eisen) and Ernesto Arancibia, and directed by Ernesto Arancibia. However, the executions were nullified by the timely arrival of Jedi reinforcements, led by Jedi Master Mace Windu. It was directed by Gavaldón, and stars María Félix. Count Dooku sentenced Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Padmé Naberrie Amidala to be executed in this method.

A 1954 Mexican version, called Camelia was adapted by José Arenas, Edmundo Báez, Roberto Gavaldón and Gregorio Walerstein. The beastlike creatures approach from the arena door, and attack and eat the condemned persons in the manner of a wild beast. It stars Gino Cervi, Micheline Presle and Roland Alexandre. The scene depicting this method takes place in the Geonosian arena with the condemned chained to a pole, awaiting execution. A 1953 French version called La Dame aux camélias was adapted by Bernard Natanson and directed by Raymond Bernard. The origin of the term is that it was originally employed by the Geonosians. It was adapted by Roberto Tasker and directed by Gabriel Soria, and stars Lina Montes and Emilio Tuero. Within the movie, Geonosian style execution is a form of capital punishment practiced on the planet Geonosis.

A 1944 Spanish language version was produced in Mexico. Octavian was responsible for the deaths of several hundred political opponents well before he was granted tribunician powers, and the civil war between Palpatine and the Republicans in the Galactic Senate vaguely resembles the civil war between the Triumvirs, although the former is less morally ambiguous. The movie was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress (Greta Garbo). The movie inspired Milton Benjamin to write and publish a song called "I'll Love Like Robert Taylor, Be My Greta Garbo". Parallels also exist to Octavian, who became Augustus, the first emperor of Rome. It stars Greta Garbo, Robert Taylor and Lionel Barrymore. Lucas himself points this fact out in the DVD commentary of the film. It was adapted by Zoe Akins, Frances Marion and James Hilton, and directed by George Cukor. Other observers believe that Palpatine's power grab is very similar to Hitler's climb to power in Nazi Germany, since he, as Chancellor of Germany, was granted "emergency powers" like Chancellor Palpatine of the Republic.

Arguably the most famous version was the 1936 Hollywood version. Since the original drafts for Star Wars were written in the 1970s, this could have been a political statement as to what a nuclear war would mean. It stars Yvonne Printemps and Pierre Fresnay. The political atmosphere in Attack of the Clones is similar to the Cold War, except that it eventually escalates to a real war. It was adapted by Abel Gance and directed by Gance and Fernand Rivers. The composition of the group of C-3PO, R2-D2, Anakin and Padmé on the balcony at the end of Attack of the Clones is similar in nature to the end of The Empire Strikes Back. The first sound version was made in French in 1934, called La Dame aux camélias. The artificiality of Anakin's hand may have at least partly been a personal choice.

There are no known copies of this film extant. It is worth noting that Luke's electronic hand is far more sophisticated than Anakin's, which is perhaps due to development of technology between the two movies, although it seems that most major medical advances would have been made long before during the 25,000 year history of the Republic. It stars Norma Talmadge and Gilbert Roland. This dual hand severing becomes important later on in Return of the Jedi, when Luke fails to kill Vader when he sees they both have a cybernetic hand. It was directed by Fred Niblo. Anakin has his right forearm cut off by Count Dooku, just as Luke has his hand cut off by Darth Vader (who is Anakin) in The Empire Strikes Back. A 1926 version was adapted by Fred De Gresac, George Marion Jr., Olga Printzlau and Chandler Sprague. Back on Naboo, Anakin (with a new mechanical hand) and Padmé hold a secret wedding, with only C-3PO and R2-D2 as witnesses.

It stars Uno Henning and Tora Teje. At a large landing field, Palpatine, Bail Organa, and the other Loyalists watch as clone troopers and weapons of war board their starships, moving off to fight the Separatists. A 1925 Swedish film called Damen med kameliorna was adapted and directed by Olof Molander. But, he and Windu also agree that the Dark Side is now clouding everything, and that they should closely monitor the Senate. It stars Alla Nazimova and Rudolph Valentino. Yoda is hesitant to believe this, stating that the Dark Side is capable of creating fear and mistrust. Smallwood. Back in Coruscant, Obi-Wan informs the Jedi Council of Dooku's warning that Darth Sidious is controlling the Senate.

A 1921 version was adapted by June Mathis and directed by Ray C. He meets up with his master, Darth Sidious, who is pleased that the war has begun -- as planned. It stars Theda Bara, Alan Roscoe, Walter Law, Glen White, Alice Gale, Claire Whitney and Richard Barthelmess. When Yoda responds, focusing his attention on using the force to slow and divert the plummeting structure certain to kill them both, Dooku uses the distraction to quickly hop into his ship and escape. Gordon Edwards. Dooku seems to sense he may be outmatched, so he uses the force to topple a massive pillar onto the incapacitated Obi-Wan and Anakin. In 1917 an American film was made, adapted by Adrian Johnson and directed by J. Yoda appears just as Dooku is about to finish them off, and the two masters of the Force go head-to-head in lightsaber combat.

It stars Hesperia, Alberto Collo and Ida Carloni Talli. Unfortunately, they are no match for Dooku's mastery of the Force and the lightsaber, and in short order he injures Obi-Wan and cuts off Anakin's right arm. It was directed by Baldassarre Negroni and Gustavo Serena. Count Dooku attempts to escape, but Obi-Wan and Anakin track him to a secret hangar, where they engage him in combat. An Italian language film was also made in the same year, called La Signora delle camelie. A large battle ensues between the Republic's clone army, and the Separatist's droid army. It was adapted by Frances Marion and directed by Albert Capellani, and stars Clara Kimball Young, Paul Capellani, Lillian Cook and Robert Cummings. Luckily Yoda unexpectedly arrives with the Republic's new clone army.

In 1915, an English language film, the first one to use the name Camille, was made. Even though Windu kills Jango Fett, defeat for the Jedi seems imminent. It stars Sarah Bernhardt. During their struggle, Mace Windu arrives with his Jedi, and they battle Dooku's droids on the field. In 1910, a French language silent film was made, directed by André Calmettes and Henri Pouctal. Anakin and Padmé arrive on the planet, but are quickly captured and also sentenced to death, joining Obi-Wan in an arena-like complex where three huge lizard creatures are unleashed on them as sport for the local population. Directed by Viggo Larsen, it stars Oda Alstrup, Larsen, Gustave Lund and Robert Storm Petersen. Obi-Wan refuses to believe him, saying that the Jedi would have known if that was the case, which is a death sentence.

The first movie based on the work was a Danish silent film version in 1907 called Kameliadamen. Back on Geonosis, Count Dooku tries to persuade Obi-Wan to join him, warning him that Darth Sidious is now in control of the Senate. Like the novel, the films tell the story of gay romance in Paris in the 1840s, and one young woman who wins the heart of a wealthy young man, but gives him up for his own good. Meanwhile, a suggestible Representative Binks calls for Chancellor Palpatine to be given emergency powers, with which he can call the recently discovered clone army into battle. The novel was also the basis for Giuseppe Verdi's opera La Traviata. Unbeknownst to them, Anakin and Padmé also make their way to rescue Obi-Wan. Camille is the name of several films based on the 1852 novel and play La Dame aux Camélias by Alexandre Dumas, fils. Now that the Jedi Council knows of Dooku's army, Jedi Mace Windu leads a team to Geonosis.

Afterward, he confesses to Padmé that he is consumed with confusion with what he has done since he is filled with guilt, but also satisfaction. Anakin brings his mother's body back to her home, where her funeral is held. Back at Coruscant, Yoda senses a terrible darkness in the Force coming from Anakin. In a fit of rage, he slaughters the entire Tusken community -- including the women and children.

Within moments she dies in his arms after only a few words. Anankin travels through the night to track her down, and finds her in very poor condition in the Tusken caravan camp. But, he also finds that she was kidnapped one month earlier by local Tuskens. Upon arriving, he tracks down his mother and learns from her new family that she is no longer a slave and is married.

Anakin is also troubled by a newfound sense that his mother is in grave danger, and he beckons for Padmé to accompany him to his home planet of Tatooine (disobeying Obi-Wan's orders to remain on Naboo). Eventually, however, both are embracing, unable to deny their love. Anakin is angered by this, and experiences inner conflict between his strong desires for her and his duties as a Jedi. However, Padmé resists, explaining that it would be impossible for the two of them to be together, since she is a Senator and he is a Jedi.

Meanwhile, Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala have been spending much time together on Naboo, and Anakin reveals his deep love for her. Obi-Wan sends a recorded message to the Jedi Council to inform them of his recent findings just before being captured. He also learns that it was the Federation that ordered the assassination of Amidala, as revenge for the Battle of Naboo (see Episode 1: The Phantom Menace). On Geonosis, Obi-Wan overhears conversations between Count Dooku and the Trade Federation, and learns that they are behind the separatist movement and have built up a new droid army.

After unsuccessfully trying to capture Jango Fett, Obi-Wan places a tracking device on his ship and follows him to the planet of Geonosis. Obi-Wan meets Jango on Kamino, and believes him to be the killer he has been tracking. A bounty hunter named Jango Fett was hired to be the template for the clones. He is told by the natives that the army was ordered some ten years ago by a Jedi named Sifo-Dyas-- believed by the Jedi Council to have died around the same time.

During the investigation, Obi-Wan is led to a mysterious planet called Kamino (missing from the Republic’s archives), where he discovers a secret clone army being developed for the Republic. Representative Jar Jar Binks assumes the Senator's duties in her absence. Anakin welcomes the opportunity, as he often becomes angry and frustrated by Obi-Wan's criticism, and is glad to have an opportunity to be on his own. Meanwhile, Anakin is given the assignment of protecting the Senator and escorting her back to her home planet of Naboo.

That night, a mysterious bounty hunter makes another attempt on Amidala's life, and the Jedi Council asks Obi-Wan to track down the killer. As a result, Chancellor Palpatine requests that Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and his apprentice, Anakin Skywalker protect her. Upon her arrival at Coruscant, she narrowly escapes an assassination attempt. Senator Padmé Amidala, former Queen of Naboo, returns to the Galactic Senate to offer a vote against the creation of a Republic Army, even though there are no longer enough Jedi to maintain peace and order in the galaxy.

A separatist movement (secretly led by former Jedi Count Dooku) has threatened the peace. The Galactic Republic is in crisis.
. That film turned out to be Spider-Man which also enjoyed a more favourable critical reception.

The film grossed over $300 million in United States box office, a financial success which nevertheless was overshadowed by the even greater box-office success of The Phantom Menace. However, it was not the top grossing film of the year, the first time a Star Wars film has not had that distinction. It is the first Star Wars film which used a high definition digital 24 frame system for most of the movie's live action scenes.[1] (http://www.starwars.com/episode-ii/news/2000/04/news20000409.html). Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones is the fifth Star Wars science fiction movie released and the second part of the prequel trilogy which began with Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and ends with Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Characters from the original trilogy that make their first chronological appearance in this movie include Boba Fett (A New Hope Special Edition, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi), Beru Lars (A New Hope), and Owen Lars (A New Hope). In The Empire Strikes Back, Han lands the Millennium Falcon on the conning tower of the Avenger to evade the Imperial fleet. Obi-Wan lands on an asteroid to evade Jango Fett.

In The Empire Strikes Back an asteroid is actually a potato. As an in-joke an asteroid is shaped like a cow. In "Star Wars" Leia's blaster can be heard to make a gun shot due to a mistake in sound editing. As an in-joke Padme's blaster makes the sound of a .44 Magnum.

As an in-joke Jango Fett hits his head on the entrance to Slave I, a reference to the goof in "Star Wars" when an Imperial Stormtrooper hits his head. Owen asked Luke the same question in A New Hope when he got up from the table at dinner, and Luke had been sitting in the same place that Anakin had been in Episode II. Owen Lars asks Anakin where he is going when he gets up from the table at the Lars farm after talking with Cliegg about his mother. R2-D2 repairs C-3PO (The Empire Strikes Back).

The hero hides from an enemy in an asteroid field (The Empire Strikes Back). Obi-Wan Kenobi travels to a floating city where he is met by a seemingly benign administrator who gives him a tour of facilities but an enemy is nearby (The Empire Strikes Back). Kenobi uses Jedi Mind Trick (A New Hope). In "A New Hope" Kenobi tells Luke to "trust your feeling".

In "The Empire Strikes Back" Darth Vader uses a similar phrase; "Search your feelings," when he is revealing to Luke that he is his father. Anakin is told by Palpatine to "trust your feelings". A character says "I have a bad feeling about this" - Anakin in the Geonosis colosseum (all Star Wars films). A character has an arm amputated by a lightsaber (all Star Wars films).
