(1983) Filming (for the first time in color) at Dallas’ Nieman Marcus was “like being handed a $20 million set.” Shoppers, backstage workers, diamond rings, sable coats, a man in a chicken suit, elevators opening and closing like Kurosawa wipes, closing with the 75th anniversary party. 16mm. Approx. 118 mins.
“Captures those tiny, illuminating surprises.”
“… a two-hour immersion in the eerily cool-posh world of the grandiose Neiman-Marcus emporium in Dallas.”
– Tom Shales, The Washington Post
