‘Who are you Polly Magoo?’

I saw this black and white, curious masterpiece at the Cine Lumiere at The French Institute in London many years ago. It was made in 1966 by William Klein and stars a studio full of iconic 60′s fashion models such as Peggy Moffitt (left) and Donyale Luna.

Who are you Polly Magoo?  doesn’t make much sense but that was never the point of this surreal, satirical and stylish curio.

Here are 2 of the best clips but do try to see it in full one day…

The incredible opening scene……….

And another FABULOUS scene of the models putting on eye make-up starring Peggy Moffitt, her eyeliner and her eyelashes
