Frank Mazzola, Film Editor and ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ Actor, Dies at 79

21 January 2015 12:02 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Frank Mazzola, longtime film editor and actor and technical consultant for the James Dean classic “Rebel Without a Cause,” died Jan. 13. He was 79.

The Hollywood native began his career as a child actor, with parts in films including “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” “Always in My Heart,” “Casablanca” and “The Boy with the Green Hair.” After an extra role in Elia Kazan’s “East of Eden,” Mazzola worked in the most high-profile film of his career, “Rebel Without a Cause.”

In addition to playing the character of Crunch, Mazzola provided technical assistance on the film, advising director Nicholas Ray on creating the reality of rebellious teens from middle class families. He aided in the choosing of the film’s 1949 Mercury 8 Coupe as well as the red jacket worn by Dean in the film, and even helped stage the knife duel between Dean and Corey Allen.

Martin Scorsese On Anita Ekberg And A “Legendary” Moment In Movie History – Video

12 January 2015 5:23 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Anita Ekberg, who died Sunday, emerged from Sweden during the 1950s and eventually made dozens of films. But we’ll let Martin Scorsese talk about the single scene from 1960 that made her a legend:

“There are certain movie images that come to stand for more than just the picture itself — they come to define an entire era, and it seems to happen instantaneously: Humphrey Bogart waiting at the bar for Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca, James Dean in his red jacket in Rebel Without A Cause and, of course, Anita Ekberg in the Trevi Fountain in Fellini’s La Dolce Vita. This brief moment conjures up a vast universe that’s gone now — the international ‘jet set’ of the 60s and 70s, the world of international moviemaking, the very special cinematic world of Federico Fellini. He and Marcello Mastroianni and Ekberg made magic together. It was her one great moment in movies, »

Mindy Newell: Je Ne Suis Pa Charlie Hebdo

12 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

Yesterday I had a thought – which I do have on occasion.

I have always considered myself a “socially conscious” comics writer. This means that, if you look over my body of work, you will notice that I have told stories that, in one way or another, reflect “real world” events and the consequences of those events on my characters. Notably, of course, in my 1986 Lois Lane mini-series about child abduction and abuse, “When It Rains, God is Crying” (coincidentally edited by ComicMix’s Robert Greenberger when we were both working for DC, he an editor and me a freelancer), but also as far back as “Moon River,” my first story in New Talent Showcase, an admittedly tyro effort to portray the outcome of a closed, dictatorial society on an individual. And of course there was “Chalk Drawings,” which I co-wrote with George Pérez for Wonder Woman, which was a story about suicide. »

Rebel Without A Cause Screens in 35mm January 16th at Webster University

8 January 2015 8:43 AM, PST | | See recent news »

“Why did you shoot those puppies, John?”

Rebel Without A Cause will screen in 35mm at Webster University’s Moore Auditorium Friday January 16th at 7:30pm. The screening will be introduced by We Are Movie Geek’s own Tom Stockman (aka: me)

The theme of teen-age alienation received brilliant treatment in 1955 at the hands of director Nicholas Ray and stars James Dean, Natalie Wood and Sal Mineo. Rebel Without A Cause was a poignant melodrama that made James Dean a household word. Back in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s I saw Rebel Without A Cause several times on 35mm at The Tivoli (usually double-feature with East Of Eden) back when it was a true repertory cinema, showing different classic double-bills every night. Movie lovers will get a chance to experience Rebel Without A Cause in all of its 35mm glory when it screens next Friday, January 16th at »
