“This Is No Dream” James Munn/ Bob Willoughby
This Is No Dream: Making Rosemary’s Baby is a definitive, illustrated history of Roman Polanski’s great 1968 film, from director and casting choices to the kudos and condemnation it received upon its release. During its making, Polanski fell seriously behind schedule and was almost fired; star Mia Farrow faced an ultimatum―career or marriage―from husband Frank Sinatra; and actor John Cassavetes nearly came to blows with his genius director. Photographer Bob Willoughby―a veteran special set photographer who shot for such movies as Ocean’s 11 (1960), Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) and The Graduate (1967)―captured it all, along with other studio photographers.
ROSEMARY’S BABY- Director Roman Polanski
A young wife comes to believe that her offspring is not of this world. Waifish Rosemary Woodhouse (Mia Farrow) and her struggling actor husband Guy (John Cassavetes) move to a New York City apartment building with an ominous reputation and odd neighbors Roman and Minnie Castavet (Sidney Blackmer, Ruth Gordon). When Rosemary becomes pregnant she becomes increasingly isolated, and the diabolical truth is revealed only after Rosemary gives birth.
