Into The Pantheon

Andrew Sarris RIP — the only critic to note SKIDOO’s “widescreen tolerance” and place it in his Best Of 1969:

Of the American classicists and semi-classicists, I have a specially soft spot in my heart this year for George Cukor (“Justine”), John Frankenheimer (“Gypsy Moths”), Elia Kazan (“The Arrangement”), Otto Preminger (“Skidoo”), John Huston (“A Walk With Love and Death”), and I don’t care if they’re relevant or not.

 That’s a true visionary.
