Marina City stars in its first movie
Goldstein was Philip Kaufmans first film and it included scenes at Marina City. Kaufman would go on to direct Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Right Stuff, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, and Henry & June. He would also write for the Raiders of the Lost Ark films.
But in 1964, he made a low-budget, 85-minute black-and-white film about a prophetic old man that won the Prix de la Nouvelle Critique award at Cannes Film Festival in May 1964. The film was released in the United States on May 7, 1965.
It starred Lou Gilbert (1909-1978) as the old man, Ellen Madison (1937-1987), Ben Carruthers (1936-1983), Second City alumni Del Close (1934-1999), Severn Darden (1929-1995), Anthony Holland (1928-1988), and Jack Burns, a comedian and voice actor who co-hosted The Burns and Schreiber Comedy Hour on TV in 1973.
