You've summed Mulligan's virtues very well Blake. To the films you
mentioned let me add THE OTHER where Uta Hagen gave a fine performance.
John Belton discusses THE OTHER in a very good essay he wrote about
Mulligan published at www.thefilmjournal.com, part of a larger overview
of Mulligan's career edited by Peter Toungette.
