It's always a pleasure to see a new post from the hilarious bookbinder. This is 7,000 word piece* is incredibly concise. All further comments I will have to make face to face.

The second face from the top, below Plainview's daguerreotype; the face of a woman looking off camera.

What actress is that? And from what film?

Don't know the actress off hand; it's from Cassavete's Faces—I didn't want to use the obvious Gena; and I like the way, in this shot, she's looking off camera rather than at the camera.
