It's 1929 and avant-garde magazine Varits has a cash crisis. To the rescue, Man Ray and his muse, Kiki de Montparnasse. John Baxter lifts the lid on one of bohemian Paris's better-kept secrets

‘It is said,’ Jacqueline Goddard conceded to me circumspectly, ‘that Man Ray started with pornography. And I have seen recently a photograph of Kiki’s mouth on Man Ray’s private parts.’

Beyond this detail the last survivor of Man Ray’s models from the 1920s – and the one who perhaps knew him best – was not prepared to go. Sitting in a hotel room in the sixieme arrondissement of Paris, she and I were picking over the bones of Ray’s career, a carcass from which much meat remains to be scavenged. For successive waves of scholars, the methods by which Brooklyn-raised Emmanuel Radnitski hustled himself into a new existence as Man Ray, photographer by appointment to the Surrealists, have proved a little too close to the bone. Indeed, to pursue the metaphor to its conclusion, these methods are proving to be the skeleton in Man Ray’s closet.

Our belief that film has the power to change people’s attitudes is no more hopeful than in Steven Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan.”  The spiritual insights with which Spielberg presents his stories are not only illuminating about humanity as a whole, but also reach into the depths of each of us as individuals.

At first, the opening scenes of the D-day invasion of Normandy he presents are so horrific as to be abhorrent.  It is not the film which is repulsive, but the war the film is depicting.  And though the film catches the sense of panic and shock through both the techniques of the camera-as-actor and the fear on the actors faces, they are not exaggerating the carnage it reveals.

This is the power of Spielberg’s work.  In such masterpieces as, “Schindler’s List,” “Amistad” and now “Saving Private Ryan,” the power is in the humanity presented without embellishment or avoidance.  We see ourselves more clearly when we’ve seen humanity through Spielberg’s eyes.
