Smash His Camera (Movie Watch)

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis sued him, Marlon Brando broke his jaw & Steve McQueen gave him a look that would have killed, if looks could kill. To the celebrities he pursued, photographer Ron Galella was the beast who threatened beauty. As it turned out, he gave them a strange & lasting beauty they might never have known without him. Inherent in the story of this notorious paparazzo are the complex issues of the right to privacy, freedom of the press & the ever-growing vortex of celebrity worship. He sneaked around& invaded, bribed & held up his camera & shot till he dropped (or someone dropped him). His was the artistry of the sniper. Yet Galella found something essential in his real-life subjects, and he gave it permanence.
