Montage from Closer, starring Clive Owen and Natalie Portman.

Closer is a 2004 American drama film written by Patrick Marber, based on his award-winning 1997 play of the same name. It was produced and directed by Mike Nichols and stars Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts, Jude Law and Clive Owen. The film, like the play on which it is based, has been seen by some as a modern and tragic version of Mozart's opera Così fan tutte, with references to that opera in both the plot and the soundtrack.[2] Owen starred in the play as Dan, the role assumed by Law in the film.

The film was recognized with a number of awards and nominations, including Oscar nominations (and Golden Globe wins) for both Portman and Owen for their performances in supporting roles.

Genia, it is thrilling to know he was named after the singer :-) As for Body And Soul, it was composed in 1930, at a time when Elmer was particularly busy in the recording studio, so it is not even unlikely he recorded a version. Unfortunately, I have been unable to retrieve one - which is not excluding he did record it with the bands of Ed Kirkeby or Freddy Martin.

Patrick,
He knows. :-) His mother named him after Russ. He is in with the mob. I think he is in jail now.
He is very good looking, like a young John Gotti.
I made a CD for him with every Body and Soul I could find. :-)
He was very grateful.....:-).
I wonder if Elmer ever recorded this, he may have been gone before it was written.
I think his version would have been DIVINE!

Today is disastrous... so many comments keep disappearing... I'm sure you sadly lost a bunch of comments too as I did.
