The Color of Evening

Roddy McDowall, Andrea King, and Martin Landau (standing in back) in “The Color of Evening,” 1994.

Andrea King has a small but lovely role as a very chic and wealthy gallery customer opposite Roddy McDowall in the opening scene for “The Color of Evening” (Christara Pictures, 1994). The two veteran actors play off of each other brilliantly in a game of cat-and-mouse persuasion while the film’s lead, Martin Landau, and Andrea’s character’s chauffeur look on from the doorway.

This independent film is based on a Robert Nathan novel, and it has a first-rate cast. In addition to Andrea, Roddy, and Martin, it features Ellen Burstyn, Ione Skye, Kyle Chandler, Stuart Whitman, and Bill Irwin.
