Weegee aka Arthur Fellig (June 12, 1899 – December 26, 1968) Weegee worked in the Lower East Side of New York City as a press photographer during the 1930s and ’40s, – he developed his signature style by following the city’s emergency services and shooting the outcome. Fellig earned his nickname, a phonetic version of Ouija, because of his frequent, seemingly prescient arrivals at scenes only minutes after crimes, fires or other emergencies were reported to authorities. In the sixties he would give up street photography and work with Stanely Kubrick as the still photographer for Dr. Strangelove.
Isabelle Yasmine Adjani (born 27 June 1955) Isabelle Adjani is near perfect. Incredibly beautiful, incredibly talented and incredibly smart. She has won more Caesers – 5 (French Academy Award equivalent), then anyone else, she is fluent and acts in French, English and German and she’s cut an LP with Serge Gainsbourgh. She first came to fame staring in Francois Truffaut’s – Story of Adele H. for which she was nominated for best actress for both the American Academy Award and the Caeser (she lost both). She has worked w/ Roman Polanski, Luc Besson and Werner Herzog, among others. She still continues to act, albeit rarely and still looks pretty damn good.
