Earlier this summer, I mentioned Luchino Visconti's 1960s film, The Leopard, in conjunction with billowing white curtains and decorator Michael Smith. Since then, I actually made time to see the entire visual feast. Even had an opportunity to chat about it with New York Times writer, Steven Karutz. The always enlightening Emile de Bruijn weighed in, too, along with Michael and another enthusiastic Visconti fan, Charlotte Moss. Check out Steven's terrific piece here. It's very timely because The Leopard airs tonight on Turner Classic Movies.
