An Intimate Conversation With Mike Nichols

20 November 2014 2:52 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Two years ago, on the eve of his eagerly awaited Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman, I sat down with Mike Nichols to look back on his remarkable career. During those two-plus hours together at the Mark Hotel in Manhattan, the legendary director, then 80, reminisced about a life of highs and lows that began as a bright-eyed young boy who fled Nazi Germany for America. "I remember everything about getting on the boat in Germany in 1939," Nichols said. "I was 7, my brother was 3, and my father was already in New York setting up his practice as a doctor. German Jews couldn't leave the country, »

Doris Day Sings By The Light Of The Silvery Moon Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

3 November 2014 10:18 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

By the light of the silvery moon, I want to spoon! / To my honey, I’ll croon love’s tune / Honey moon, keep a shining in June! / Your silvery beams will bring love’s dreams / We’ll be cuddling soon, by the silvery moon”

By The Light Of The Silvery Moon Screens Saturday November 8th at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo) at 10:30am.

By The Light Of The Silvery Moon is a sequel to On Moonlight Bay and features Doris Day and Gordon MacRae returning as sweethearts in the early 1900s who get to croon some pretty wonderful songs of that period. It’s strictly family stuff, nostalgic and as prettily pictured as a postcard of an Americana that never really existed except in Hollywood’s imagination and Norman Rockwell paintings.

The story takes place just after the end of the first World War »

Jennifer Lawrence and What It Means to Be Hollywood’s Top Female Star

29 October 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As we revealed on Monday, Jennifer Lawrence topped Vulture’s Most Valuable Stars List this year, and although we only started compiling these lists in 2012, the fact that a woman has topped it for the first time this year seems like cause for rejoicing. How often has an actress been perceived as the biggest star in Hollywood? Not that often. Look to a more established metric: The Quigley Publishing Co. has been publishing its Motion Picture Exhibitors’ Poll of the Top 10 Box-Office Draws since the early 1930s. Since 1967, a woman has topped it only three times — Lawrence in its most recent poll, Sandra Bullock in 2009, and Julia Roberts in 1999. That’s a lot of dudes.Of course, once upon a time, actresses were typically bigger ticket-sellers than men: In the 1930s, Shirley Temple regularly topped the Quigley poll, while Julie Andrews and Doris Day pretty much split the 1960s »

An interview with Roxanne Pallett, star of Wrong Turn 6

22 October 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paul Risker chats with Wrong Turn 6 actress Roxanne Pallett

Ahead of the home entertainment release of the sixth instalment of the Wrong Turn franchise, Flickering Myth had an opportunity to speak with actress Roxanne Pallett.

In a conversation that took us from incomplete movies on a Saturday night to taking a perilous Wrong Turn, Roxanne took us behind the scenes of her craft as she reflected on the art of performance on stage and screen.

Why a career as an actress? Was there that one inspirational moment?

I have never had a defining moment – it was who I was from day one. I was never one of those kids that had to sit down with a teacher and discuss what they could be.

I was an only child, and so I was a constant exhibitionist. I was always pretending to be dead at the bottom of the stairs, and my »

L.A. Film Critics to Honor Gena Rowlands

18 October 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. will present Gena Rowlands with its career achievement award, the group announced on Saturday.

An 84-year-old veteran of film, TV and theater, Rowlands is particularly celebrated for helping to usher in a bold new commitment to realism in American screen acting in the 1960s and ’70s, never more so than in her grittily layered, emotionally fearless performances for the writer-director John Cassavetes. Their 10-picture collaboration, which included such films as “Shadows” (1959) and “Faces” (1968), earned Rowlands two Oscar nominations for best actress, in “A Woman Under the Influence” (1975) and “Gloria” (1981).

Cassavetes received the L.A. critics’ career achievement award in 1986, making him and Rowlands the first husband-and-wife duo to be so honored in the group’s nearly 40-year history.

Over her 60-plus years as an actress, Rowlands has won four Emmys, for “The Betty Ford Story” (1987), “Face of a Stranger” (1991), “Hysterical Blindness” (2003) and “The Incredible Mrs. Ritchie »

Polly Bergen dead at 84: ‘First woman president of the U.S.A.,’ former mistress of Tony Soprano’s father Emmy Award-winning actress Polly Bergen — whose roles ranged from the first U.S.A. woman president in Kisses for My President to the former mistress of both Tony Soprano’s father and John F. Kennedy in the television hit series The Sopranos — died from "natural causes" on September 20, 2014, at her home in Southbury, Connecticut. The 84-year-old Bergen, a heavy smoker for five decades, had been suffering from emphysema and other ailments since the 1990s. "Most people think I was born in a rich Long Island family," she told The Washington Post in 1988, but Polly Bergen was actually born Nellie Paulina Burgin on July 14, 1930, to an impoverished family in Knoxville, Tennessee. Her father was an illiterate construction worker while her mother got only as far as the third grade. The family »

Wrapping up this four-part "Honorary Oscars Bypass Women" article, let it be noted that in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' 85-year history there have been only two women presidents: two-time Oscar-winning actress Bette Davis (for two months in 1941, before the Dangerous and Jezebel star was forced to resign) and screenwriter Fay Kanin (1979-1983), whose best-known screen credit is the 1958 Doris Day-Clark Gable comedy Teacher's Pet. Additionally, following some top-level restructuring in April 2011, the Academy created the positions of Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer, with the CEO post currently held by a woman, former Film Independent executive director and sometime actress Dawn Hudson. The COO post is held »

Honorary Award: Gloria Swanson, Rita Hayworth among dozens of women bypassed by the Academy (photo: Honorary Award non-winner Gloria Swanson in 'Sunset Blvd.') (See previous post: "Honorary Oscars: Doris Day, Danielle Darrieux Snubbed.") Part three of this four-part article about the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Honorary Award bypassing women basically consists of a long, long — and for the most part quite prestigious — list of deceased women who, some way or other, left their mark on the film world. Some of the names found below are still well known; others were huge in their day, but are now all but forgotten. Yet, just because most people (and the media) suffer from long-term — and even medium-term — memory loss, that doesn't mean these women were any less deserving of an Honorary Oscar. So, among the distinguished female film professionals in Hollywood and elsewhere who have passed away without »

Oscars: Season’s First Academy Award Winners A Worthy Group Who Represent Moviemaking At Its Best

28 August 2014 6:42 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

For the first two or three years of the now six-year-old Governors Awards, I regularly wrote a column “suggesting” who I considered to be a deserving choice for Honorary Oscars, people who have been overlooked in their fields over the years.

Related: Big Names, Deserving Recipients For 2013 Governors Awards

On every one of those lists, three names would appear: Angela Lansbury, Maureen O’Hara and screenwriter Jean-Claude Carriere. Last year, thankfully, the Academy finally got around to recognizing Lansbury with an Honorary Oscar, and now with today’s earlier announcement the AMPAS Board Of Governors has wisely chosen Carriere and O’Hara along with the great (but already Oscar-winning) Japanese animation director Hayao Miyazaki and Harry Belafonte, the way-overdue Jean Hersholt Humanitarian honoree this year. This is an excellent list for an award that is given for an entire career. Some might quibble about Miyazaki because he actually won an »

Two Left Feet: How “El Tango de Roxanne” Represents Everything Wrong with Baz Luhrmann

23 August 2014 8:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Moulin Rouge! is a mixed bag. It’s an idea that looks good on paper, but looks horrendous in execution. It’s a film where it should have the ability to make all the right emotional pivots, but succumbs to an ostentation that exists in its final product, making this a hallmark for director Baz Lurhmann’s career. I appreciate him, in an odd way, for injecting a very strange version of romance in his films, one that, in Moulin Rouge!, is wonderfully cynical and melancholy. In almost all of his work, his maximalism overshadows some of the most interesting aspects of the films (the sole exception being Strictly Ballroom, his first feature): the post-modern comments on capitalism in William Shakespeare’s Romeo+ Juliet, the inherent frivolity of “freedom, beauty, truth, and love” in Moulin Rouge!, and the hollow decadence of the parties in The Great Gatsby. But everything »

Lauren Bacall was a wonderful and generous friend of ours at TCM, and a great connection to the ‘golden age of cinema,’” said TCM host Robert Osborne. “Personally, I have to admit that she never failed to make my heart beat faster and my voice to stammer when we spoke. Talk about true star quality – that was Bacall. We are truly blessed to have had her as an integral part of our TCM family.”
