One of the screen earliest depictions of the painting is in the 1936 biopic “Rembrandt”, while Jean-Luc Godard made use of it in his film “Passion” (1982), where the painting is enacted by actors in one of the scenes. In the movie Godard asks the viewers to focus on the faces of the actors and not the composition, similar to what they would have done with a painting of Rembrandt. It was a visual delight, winning the Technical Grand Prize for cinematography at Cannes. “Night Watch” (1995) is a made for television film by David Jackson that stars Pierce Brosnan and Alexandra Paul, who play UN agents sent to investigate the theft of the artwork which leads them to a series of art forgeries. As a digression: Rembrandt's paintings were extensively forged, including by his own students as practise and otherwise, leading to art historian and curator, Wilhelm von Bode, to state, “Rembrandt painted 700 pictures.

One critic said that “The Taking of Pelham 123 (2009) represents typical Hollywood action from a director who knows how to push all the right big screen buttons. Unfortunately, once you’ve seen one police car smash into something at breakneck speed, you’ve seen the lot.” I have not watched the first (1972) film adaptation nor the television film (1998) so I have no words to say about this and the right to compare and comment. But, personally I quite admire the 2009 version of the movie.

Although individual products had shown evidence of drastic increases, they were incapable of meeting the overall goal that Stalin had set. Due to this unrealistic goal setting, the developments of industrial output were largely failure because they did meet their planned amounts. Historian Michael Kort also notes the difference between the planned output of cast iron and the actual production. Only 6.2 million metric tons of cast iron were actually produced in 1932 compared to the desired amount of 17 million (Khlevniuk). The actual production of cast iron by the declared end of the First Five-Year plan was not even close to the planned amount.

We learn about the failures of Hollywood through the outsider perspective of Todd.
Romanticism symbolized an important step towards a more liberated way of writing, where an author could express his or her feelings through a story as freely as wanted. The movement saw its brightest point towards the end of the eighteenth century. Edgar Allan Poe was the epitome of romantic writing. He was characterized by dark stories and poems.
