And the award for coolest chess set in a motion picture goes to... "Pandora and the Flying Dutchman"
Watched a movie called "Pandora and the Flying Dutchman" this weekend. Ava Gardner and James Mason directed by Albert Lewin. It was extraordinarilly poetic, usually to non-realistic, even absurd, effect, but I kinda like that. Love is portrayed quite a bit like insanity in it (the big theme is "The measure of love is what one is willing to give up for it") and all the dudes have cool professions like race car driver, matador or archeologist. If you enjoy big beautiful pretentious old film classics I highly recommend it.
