The image of the 2011 Cannes Film Festival? It’s Faye Dunaway, in a photo taken by Palme d’Or-winning Scarecrow director and photographer Jerry Schatzberg in 1970. The relevance to this year’s festival: Schatzberg’s first film, the Dunaway-starrer Puzzle of a Downfall Child, has been restored by Universal Pictures, and the barely seen film will be screened at Cannes before it is distributed in France by Carlotta in the fall. Dunaway will be on hand for the festival screening as will Schatzberg, who went on to direct Panic in Needle Park with Al Pacino the following year.
