And stay tuned for more Warren Beatty classics all next week as we celebrate the Hollywood legend's 75th birthday.
Each sunset Navarre becomes a wolf and each sunrise just as he's human again, Isabeau becomes a hawk.
Consider the hawk's wings touching water, the sunlight, and the way the actors are interacting with real stone and wood and the great outdoors.
I miss trained animal actors and real location shoots both of which have been replaced by CGI and green screens.'s grand romantic gestures would never work today if you replaced this physicality with weightless special effects.
The hawk will lift off and the captain of the guard will scream, collapsing with agony in the snow.
Who wouldn't howl and weep for the eternal loss of this woman?
