Jean-Luc Godard

  1. Roger Vadim, Into The Night, 1984.   Loudmouth director John Landis had his fetishes. Certain phrases (“See you next Wedneday” - it’s from 2001) and cameo roles for director buddies. (Remember Spielberg at the very end of The Bluse Brothers?)  Now he had invited M Nouvelle Vague, himself, to join the latest party.  “Everything was fine,” recalled Landis in 2015.  “Then two weeks before we started, he called to say he couldn’t come - he had to make a film.” Said Landis: “How do you say ‘Fuck you!’ in  French?” He already had cameos for Jack Arnold, Paul Bartel, David Cronenberg, Jonathan Demme, Richard Franklin, Amy Heckerling, Jim Henson, Colin Higgins, Lawrence Kasdan, Jonathan Lynn, Paul Mazursky, Daniel Petrie, Don Siegel… and himself. But he  insisted on one more - and French. But who? That’s when  someone said Roger Vadim was living in Santa Monica. “He agreed and he was great, a very good actor.” Landis remembers it well. Of course, he does.  After the dizzy heights of An American Werewolf In London, Animal House, The Blues Brothers, Trading Places, etc., this was his first flop. 
  2. François Borleand, Romance, France, 1999.   Like Godard,  Catherine Breillat  feels it would be impossible to make a real porno film. She comes as close as she dared and wanted Godard along for the ride - as the S&M lover of young Caroline Ducey.
