Strictly Come Dancing: the quarter-final – as it happened

4 December 2016 11:57 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It’s Musicals Week! Was Claudia able to pull off a Lion King salsa? And how did Judge Rinder fare as a Jersey Boy?

7.57pm GMT

So that’s it for another Strictly week, and only two to go! Thank you all for joining in, and I’ll see you next Saturday at 6.50pm for the semi-final, which involves Two Dances. It’s the final push, so let’s make it count. See you next week! Hx

7.57pm GMT

Judge Rinder thanks the judges, because he knows how difficult it is to be a judge. He then makes Oksana cry by being entirely lovely.

They dance their final dance to Defying Gravity from Wicked, and I am already missing Rinder’s sense of fun (a lot), his latin hips (a bit) and his dancing sex face (less so). Rinder has without doubt been on the biggest journey of this year’s Strictly quarter finalists, »

Sudden Fear

3 December 2016 10:16 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Joan Crawford controls every aspect of this glamorous, Oscar nominated noir about a murderous marriage double-cross. Good acting enlivens a by-the-book, gimmick-laden plot, with every moment designed to flatter the star. Sudden Fear Blu-ray The Cohen Film Collection 1952 / B&W / 1:37 flat Academy / 110 min. / Street Date December 13, 2016 / 34.99 Starring Joan Crawford, Jack Palance, Gloria Grahame, Bruce Bennett, Virginia Huston, Touch Connors, Bess Flowers, Taylor Holmes, Lewis Martin, Arthur Space.

Reviewed by Glenn Erickson

The Joan Crawford movie Sudden Fear is an efficient and stylish thriller. Although it's technically film noir, its story of a two-way murder frame-up is sublimated to the actress's overpowering personality. It's the first movie where Crawford was able to swing her considerable »

Robert Vaughn, ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ Star, Dies at 83

11 November 2016 9:53 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Robert Vaughn, who starred as Napoleon Solo on TV’s “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” from 1964-68, died Friday morning of acute leukemia, his manager Matthew Sullivan told Variety. He was 83.

Vaughn began undergoing treatment for the illness this year on the East Coast.

The James Bond-influenced “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” in which Vaughn’s Solo and David McCallum’s Illya Kuryakin battled the evil forces of T.H.R.U.S.H. around the globe (thanks to the glories of stock footage), was quite the pop-culture phenomenon in the mid-1960s, even as the show’s tone wavered from fairly serious to cartoonish and back again over its four seasons.

It spawned a spinoff, “The Girl From U.N.C.L.E.,” starring Stefanie Powers, as well as a few feature adaptations during the run of the TV series — “One Spy Too Many,” “One of Our Spies Is Missing,” and “The Karate Killers” — that starred Vaughn and McCallum. »

7 Famous People Who Crossed Paths with Charles Manson and His ‘Family’

12 October 2016 8:54 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

//players.brightcove.net/416418724/default_default/index.min.js

Before Charles Manson and his murderous “family” embarked on a plan to kill famous people, the group sought out celebrities as friends, roommates and professional connections.

Manson was drawn to the famous and glamorous, Manson biographer Jeff Guinn explains to People: “Manson fully intended to become the most famous rock ’n’ roll star in history” — and he worked to connect with famous people who he believed could aid his career.

The time period is also important, Guinn says: From the mid- to late-‘60s, many celebrities embraced an egalitarian idea that they »

Toronto: 'Lion' Has Potential to Become Major Oscar Player for The Weinstein Co.

Harvey Weinstein has more lives than all of Doris Day's cats combined. Just as many were beginning to count out the co-chief of The Weinstein Co. (again), he has pulled a rabbit out of his hat (again) — this time not a blockbuster from Quentin Tarantino, his frequent savior, but rather Lion, a drama that came into the Toronto International Film Festival largely under the radar. The film, which The Weinstein Co. is slated to release on Nov. 25, premiered on Saturday night at the Princess of Wales Theatre and generated a prolonged ovation — standing, after the filmmakers

Films For Labor Day Weekend

3 September 2016 5:32 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Labor Day celebrates working people and the labor unions that brought working people the 40-hour work week, the 8-hour day, overtime pay, work-place safety, paid holidays and vacations, and a host of other protections and benefits. To honor those hard-working people and organized labor, here is a list (in no particular order) of a dozen worthy narrative films for Labor Day.

Norma Rae (1979)

For many people, the words “labor union” bring to mind the image of Sally Field standing up in defiance in “Norma Rae.” Field won an Oscar for her unforgettable, inspiring character, a worker in a Southern textile factory who becomes involved in labor organizing and stands up to management after the factory workers’ health is threatened in the workplace. This stirring drama, based on a true story, also stars Beau Bridges as Norma Rae’s husband Sonny and Ron Leibman as an union organizer from the Northeast. »

Jackie Chan. Sorry, Academy, but this was not an appropriate choice

2 September 2016 11:48 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Michael Russnow “Consider superstars such as Warren Beatty, Robert Redford, Debbie Reynolds, Annette Bening, Harrison Ford, Albert Finney, Kim Novak, Doris Day, Samuel L. Jackson, Glenn Close, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp, just some of the performers already past fifty who have never won an acting Oscar, nor have they received the honorary award, which has always been a way for the Academy to recognize these oversights, despite their having also appeared in any number of important movies. I’m not sure why the Academy leaders felt moved to award Chan with this honor, but giving them the benefit of the doubt, perhaps they were drawing attention to a genre of the cinema world that has popular favor and entertains a large audience, in spite of the absence of critical acclaim.” To read more Jackie Chan Gets Oscar Michael Russnow Read his new book, “Hollywood on the Danube, »

Beach Boy Mike Love Reveals One of Manson's 'Girls' Was His Babysitter

1 September 2016 10:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Beach Boy Mike Love's new memoir, Good Vibrations, marries his recall of the group's rise to success with detours into the 1960s Southern California counterculture that thrived as the band emerged and climbed the musical charts. One of the darkest twists in that story is Love's brush with the "family" of Charles Manson, who is still serving time in prison along with his followers for a Los Angeles killing spree in August 1969. Among Love's connections to Manson: One of his "girls" babysat Love's kids, Love writes in Vibrations. Love, now 75, writes in an exclusive memoir excerpt in this week's issue of People, »

Mel Brooks: Why 'Blazing Saddles' Is the 'Funniest Movie Ever Made'

He's just been informed that, as preparation for getting the 90-year-old filmmaker on the phone, the interviewer he's speaking to has consumed a large amount of black coffee and baked beans — the same combination that fuels the notorious, and extremely noisy campfire sequence in Blazing Saddles.

The Top Ten Funny Ladies of the Movies

7 August 2016 10:29 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The recent box office success of The Boss firmly establishes Melissa McCarthy as the current queen of movie comedies (Amy Schumer could be a new contender after an impressive debut last Summer with Trainwreck), but let us think back about those other funny ladies of filmdom. So while we’re enjoying the female reboot/re-imagining of Ghostbusters and those Bad Moms, here’s a top ten list that will hopefully inspire lots of laughter and cause you to search out some classic comedies. It’s tough to narrow them down to ten, but we’ll do our best, beginning with… 10. Eve Arden The droll Ms. Arden represents the comic sidekicks who will attempt to puncture the pomposity of the leading ladies with a well-placed wisecrack (see also the great Thelma Ritter in Rear Window). Her career began in the early 1930’s with great bit roles in Stage Door and Dancing Lady. »

Who Should Receive Honorary Oscars Next?

19 July 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We're about one month away from the announcement of this year's Honorary Oscar recipients. They're usuallly announced at the end of August for a November Governor's Awards ceremony. This year's ceremony will be on November 12th. Last year rumors circled that it was Doris Day's turn but that didn't turn out to be accurate. For the past two years, The Film Experience has tried to make up for the dearth of movie site reporting about the Oscar Honorary careers (beyond the sharing of press releases / YouTube videos of their speeches) with mini-retrospectives so we're always hoping they'll choose well to give us wonderful careers to discuss right here. 

Let's reprint a list of worthies we shared a year or so ago, with a few adjustments, in case any of the elites in the Academy are undecided about who to put forth or get behind for these coveted honors.

Mike Gold: Muhammad Ali… and Me?

8 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I had a close friend and brother-in-arms named Larry Schlam, an attorney who specialized in juvenile rights. He later became a law professor and a lecturer on that same issue. He had been a doo-wop singer in Brooklyn, but that has no relevance to this topic. As it comes to us all, Larry died last year.

Back in 1971 or 1972, I was with Larry at his office in downtown Chicago. We were working late – to the extent that we were actually working – and I left around 10 Pm. As I walked towards the elevators, I saw one about to close and, like many late-evening neurotics, I was convinced that was the last elevator for the night. I shouted “Please hold the elevator!” and a giant mitt popped out to hold the door open. I trotted into the booth, turned to thank my benefactor, and found myself face-to-face with Muhammad Ali.
