|Ed Harris directed, starred in, and did all the painting |
himself in making Pollock. Squeeze, drip, and dry.
|Harris, like many directors when they are unsure |
of a scene, film it first in 16mm or digital video.
|Pollock popularized "gestural" painting in the 1950s|

|Casting is one of the|
most critical roles of
|The wealthy (also very angry) heiress and art dealer |
who "found" Jackson Pollock. She'd just climbed five
flights of stairs only to be kept waiting to see the artist.
|The two-page spread in Life which outraged readers, |
but changed everything for Pollock.
|The place where paintings|
worth millions originated.
|The physical resemblance of the movie's cast to|
the actual people in Pollock's life is amazing.

|Jackson Pollock's studio floor. I wonder how|

|Jackson Pollock's shoes--ought to |
be worth about a million dollars each.
