Redgrave and Nero — Then and Now

posted by Nell Minow

In 1967, Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero co-starred in the movie musical “Camelot,” the Lerner and Lowe version of the story of King Arthur, Guenevere, and Lancelot. Off-camera, Redgrave and Nero fell in love and they had a child, director Carlo Nero. They parted and then got back together more than 30 years later. This week, they co-star again — as long-parted lovers — in “Letters to Juliet.” So, let’s take a look at the two of them on-screen in “Camelot,” singing about how much they love each other.

    I noticed in the preview that Redgrave was costarring with her “Lancelot” from “Camelot,” but I had forgotten that they were an item, Nell. Redgrave looks amazing – I saw her in “A Month by the Lake” in the 1990’s, and she doesn’t look much different today.
    This seems like it might be a fun movie.

    Redgrave is the reason to see the movie. She is radiant!

    Actually, I like Vanessa Redgrave better now than I did when she was young. She gave many fine performances, but her atrocious French accent in “The Seven Percent Solution,” had me on the floor. She seemed very “mannered.” She did give some brilliant dramatic performances, but I really responded to her for the first time in “A Month by the Lake,” because she seemed to be at her most relaxed. And very much the heir of Kate Hepburn.
