Debra Paget was a contract player for 20th-Century Fox, whom they groomed and coached for stardom. But she never quite caught on. May- be the movies weren’t interesting enough. Or maybe she didn’t stand out from the rest of the pack. Or the studio didn’t take enough care in shaping her image. She had a ten-year run during the 50s as an above-the-title star, but left it all at the age of 29, never to return to the screen. A reconsideration of her career and the fetishistic aftershock of some of her films. Even the memory and essence of minor stars can affect people’s lives…

The 9th Athens Avant-Garde Film Festival is carried out in the context of “Cinephilia in the New Age II” which is funded by the European Union — European Regional Development Fund (Operational Programme ROP ATTIKI of NSRF 2014-2020).
