1981 • 7th edition

From 5th to 13th Sep­tem­ber 1981.
Lana Turn­er, Joseph Mankiewicz, Arthur Penn, Sean Con­nery and Gene Hack­man hon­oured Deauville with their pres­ence, reflect­ing the trib­ute offered to them by the Fes­ti­val. The not­ed absence from the new Min­is­ter of Cul­ture Jack Lang sparked con­tro­ver­sy. Fes­ti­val­go­ers greet­ed Raiders of the Lost Ark with enthu­si­asm – in the pres­ence of Har­ri­son Ford – as they did Mar­tin Scors­ese’s New York, New York, but lost the plot amidst the swirling vapors of Poly­ester, the first (and only!) film pre­sent­ed in «Odora­ma».
