Synopsis:
'Always on Sunday' (1965), a dramatised exploration of the naif painter Henri Rousseau, sees Russell reunited with Melvyn Bragg and Oliver Reed in one of his most charming and delightful documentaries. 'Isadora'(1966), Russell's exuberant study of the outrageous American dancer Isadora Duncan, is probably the film that best encapsulates the director's attitude to art and creativity. In 'Dante's Inferno' (1967) Oliver Reed gives a smouldering performance as the Pre-Raphaelite poet and painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti. This startling and bold film is one of the most ambitious that Russell made for the BBC.
