      October 2007

    • Added review of Hamlet and the increasingly hard to find double Dvd. Added alot of reviews and options to buy the UK Dvds to alot of Julie Christie films. They can be find on the left hand side. Buying direct from the site sure does help with the cost of running the site. Probaly the best value for money is the 2 disc special of the classic Doctor Zhivago. What comes across when doing these film pages is that she has never been the most prolific of actors and has made relatively few films in a long career.

    • Added details of the first UK Julie Christie Dvd boxset (2007). It's ok but could have been better.

    • Added pages of fascinating & random facts about Julie Christie.

      October 2004

      Julie Christie Julie Christie has left Los Angeles where she has lived for the past few years and taken up residence in Bethnal Green in East London in a flat that was bought by her brother in 1989. She also retains the farmhouse at Cefn-y-coed near Montgomery in North Wales where she retreated in 1978 with friends Jonathan and Lesley Heale to escape public life.

      This month sees the release of Finding Neverland, the story of Scottish playwright J.M. Barrie, which is widely tipped for Oscar success.

      Christie plays Mrs du Maurier, the grandmother of the Llewelyn Davies boys who were the real-life inspiration for Peter Pan, and stars alongside Kate Winslet, Johnny Depp and Dustin Hoffman.


      b i o g r a p h y

      One of the most luminous actresses to grace the British screen, as well as those of the rest of the world, Julie Christie is known for both her onscreen magnetism, which has not faded as she has grown older, and her so called offscreen reclusiveness. The daughter of an India-based British tea planter, she was born in Chukua, Assam, India on April 14,1941, and grew up on her father's tea plantation. Educated in England and on the Continent, she planned to become an artist or a linguist before she altered her life's goals by enrolling in the Central School of Speech Training in London. In 1957, she first stepped onstage as a paid professional with the Frinton Repertory of Essex.

      Julie Christie - 1960s

      Celebrated less for her stage work than for her continuing role in a popular British TV serial, A For Andromeda, Christie made her film debut in a small role in Crooks Anonymous (1963). After a rather charming ingenue stint in The Fast Lady (1963) (the lady was a car, not the ingenue), she received her first prestige part in Billy Liar (1963), gaining critical acclaim for this and her subsequent supporting part in Young Cassidy (1965). Thus, Christie was not the "newcomer" that some perceived her to be when she shook film audiences to their foundations in Darling (1965), a poignant time capsule about a stylishly amoral sexual butterfly. Christie won numerous awards for Darling, not the least of which were the British Film Academy award and the American Oscar.

      Her star further ascended into box-office heaven when she was cast in the big-budget Doctor Zhivago (1965), in which she gave a radiant performance as the tragic Lara. She followed this with a dual role in Truffaut's Fahrenheit 451 (1967) and a starring turn in John Schlesinger's acclaimed 1967 adaptation of Thomas Hardy's Far From the Madding Crowd. Roles of wildly varying quality followed, until in 1971 Christie began a professional and romantic liaison with Warren Beatty.

      The romance was over within a few years, but Beatty and Christie ultimately worked together on three major films of the 1970s: McCabe and Mrs. Miller (1971), Shampoo (1975), and Heaven Can Wait (1978).

      Julie Christie - 1970s

      Christie's films of the 1970s and 1980s including The Go-Between (1971), the classic Don't Look Now (1974) and her cameo in Nashville (1975) were juxtaposed with her campaigning for various social and political causes. Christie's performance in the British TV movie The Railway Station Man (1992), was a choice example of her devotion to social issues -- in this case, the ongoing ideological (and shooting) war in Ireland. Far more than any other actor of her stature she used her position to bring even the most unfashionable causes to the public eye. Few of her critics could understand her sincerity and brushed her aside or pigeon holed her as an 'enigma' which said far more for the cynics writing these pieces than their subject.

      But the lazy journalism stuck and the 'enigma' tag stuck to such an extent that it was a surprise to many audiences when she turned up as Gertrude in Kenneth Branagh's adaptation of Hamlet (1996). She won acclaim for the role, embellished the following year with her portrayal of Nick Nolte's estranged wife in Afterglow.

      Julie Christie Nominated for her third Best Actress Oscar for her performance, Christie convinced many that, although she had chosen to neglect the limelight for awhile, she hadn't chosen to neglect her talent.

      In 1999, Christie made The Miracle Maker.

      In the late 90s Christie relocated to the west coast of US and continues in films with her appearance in No Such Thing (2002).
