Lessons of Misfortune

By Henkel and Hooper.

I revert back to the Texas Chain Saw script itself to make clear that, from the beginning, the cinema held a pedagogic function for these two young creatives.  This is extremely rare for the mainstream cinema, at least in so pure a form.  It was a mode that was lost since the days of Hawks, Ray, Curtiz, Borzage, Henry King, Vidor, Wyler, Tourneur (Renoir, Ozu).
