Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The 95-year-old Wallach had received an Honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November 2010. See also: "Doris Day Inexplicably Snubbed by Academy," "Maureen O'Hara Honorary Oscar," "Honorary Oscars: Mary Pickford, Greta Garbo Among Rare Women Recipients," and "Hayao Miyazaki Getting Honorary Oscar." Delayed film debut The Actors Studio-trained Eli Wallach was to have made his film debut in Fred Zinnemann's Academy Award-winning 1953 blockbuster From Here to Eternity. Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine. For his bloodied efforts, Sinatra went on »

Delphine [Selles-Alvarez] has chosen the perfect movie to open the Haute Couture on Film series. Stanley Donen, who previously co-directed On The Town and Singin' In The Rain, both with Gene Kelly, is a specialist in connecting painted picture book backgrounds, still objects, colours, patterns, studio sets or actual city streets and making them come alive more vividly than any realism could accomplish. The power of fashion as moving art is a part of it. You remember what people are wearing in a Donen film.

While Stanley Kubrick gave us thirteen features, there’s also a handful of projects he developed that will never see the light of day under his direction. A few are featured in a recently shared documentary, and easily the closest to coming together was Napoleon. The meticulously researched war epic was courting Audrey Hepburn and Jack Nicholson, who would go on to […] »

Like the best horror and opera, "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" is always stylish and always grim. In the pantheon of essential movies you only need to see once because their impact is so specific and traumatizing, "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" is my ultimate recommendation. It's a movie that promises cynicism from the get-go, accumulates snideness and rancor with each step of its harrowing Depression-era dance marathon, and -- without ever straying from its blatant nihilism -- offers up something beautiful: a story as carnivalesque as a Hitchcock thriller but as prescient as "Network." I refuse to tell you much more about it. I guarantee you will not regret watching it, and I promise you will wonder why its message, power, and performances aren't more vaunted. If you're not gasping at Susannah York's Oscar-nominated unraveling, you're shrieking at Gig Young's Oscar-winning lunacy. If Michael Sarrazin's plummy-eyed innocence isn't breaking your heart, »

Vanessa Hudgens previewed her upcoming role in the Broadway revival of iconic musical Gigi in a role once played by acting legend Audrey Hepburn. The performance on ABC’s “Good Morning America” sparkled, boding well for the show. Hudgens, who broke out as an actress in Disney movie “High School Musical,” and its sequels has solid skills that should translate well to the stage. The new musical, adapted by Heidi Thomas and directed by Eric D. Schaeffer, played the Kennedy Center for a month in January and February with Hudgens in the lead role. [...] »
Teresa Wright: Later years (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon.") Teresa Wright and Robert Anderson were divorced in 1978. They would remain friends in the ensuing years. Wright spent most of the last decade of her life in Connecticut, making only sporadic public appearances. In 1998, she could be seen with her grandson, film producer Jonah Smith, at New York's Yankee Stadium, where she threw the ceremonial first pitch. Wright also became involved in the Greater New York chapter of the Als Association. (The Pride of the Yankees subject, Lou Gehrig, died of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis in 1941.) The week she turned 82 in October 2000, Wright attended the 20th anniversary celebration of Somewhere in Time, where she posed for pictures with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. In March 2003, she was a guest at the 75th Academy Awards, in the segment showcasing Oscar-winning actors of the past. Two years later, »

These hairstyles really pop! Want to try out a new 'do without committing to it at the salon? Look no further than your bathtub. Kid-friendly toiletry brand Paddy's Bathroom put a fun new spin on some iconic celeb hairstyles by recreating them on little kids — with bubbles! Not surprisingly, the results are utterly adorable. To complete the project, the company first polled Americans around the country to choose the most iconic celeb manes of all time, from Audrey Hepburn's chic Breakfast at Tiffany's updo to Jennifer Aniston's [...] »
When the conversation turns to Hollywood fashion icons, the same examples come up again and again: Audrey Hepburn in her stripy tops and ballet flats, Katharine Hepburn in her town-and-country tweed pants. They were great women, in great clothes, but our rush to reduce whole lifetimes of style down to a clickable shopping list only diminishes them. If this is what we do to icons, no wonder the word has become meaningless.
So let's not call Lauren Bacall, who died last August at age 89, a Hollywood fashion icon. There really is no convenient label for her, as you can see at "Lauren Bacall: The Look," a small but rigorously curated exhibit on display at the Museum at Fit through April 4. The sultry, flirty Bacall who captivated filmgoers in Howard Hawks's 1944 To Have an »
Happy Birthday, Barbie! Everyone's favorite doll is celebrating her 56th birthday today, and as we well know, she's been many a fabulous thing: a doctor, a vet, a rock star, and, perhaps most frequently, a celebrity! While the blonde beauty is quite the superstar in her own right, in honor of her special day, Us Weekly rounded up her best celebrity incarnations, from Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's to the just-released Shailene Woodley as Tris from The Divergent Series: Insurgent. Scroll down to see Us' [...] »
How do you solve a problem like Maria? For the producers of The Sound of Music, which hit theaters fifty years ago this week, the solution turned out to be Julie Andrews. Other actresses were considered for the part of the free-spirited nanny whose effervescence overcomes not only the grumpiness of Captain von Trapp but also the tyranny of the Nazis. Among those rumored to have been in the running for the role were Grace Kelly, Doris Day, Audrey Hepburn and Anne Bancroft. But in the end, even the producers who wanted a bigger, more marquee-friendly name agreed that Maria should be played by Andrews. »

I could tell you that American Idol giveth and American Idol taketh away, but then I’d have to immediately link to a Gif of Kathy Bates in American Horror Story: Coven screaming “Liiiiiiiiiiiiies.” (Go ‘head, click it — you can thank me down in the comments.)
Nope, if we don’t like the voting results inside The House That Is Trying to Evict Caleb Johnson, we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Marc Allégret: From André Gide lover to Simone Simon mentor (photo: Marc Allégret) (See previous post: "Simone Simon Remembered: Sex Kitten and Femme Fatale.") Simone Simon became a film star following the international critical and financial success of the 1934 romantic drama Lac aux Dames, directed by her self-appointed mentor – and alleged lover – Marc Allégret. The son of an evangelical missionary, Marc Allégret (born on December 22, 1900, in Basel, Switzerland) was to have become a lawyer. At age 16, his life took a different path as a result of his romantic involvement – and elopement to London – with his mentor and later "adoptive uncle" André Gide (1947 Nobel Prize winner in Literature), more than 30 years his senior and married to Madeleine Rondeaux for more than two decades. In various forms – including a threesome with painter Théo Van Rysselberghe's daughter Elisabeth – the Allégret-Gide relationship remained steady until the late '20s and their trip to »

Vanessa Hudgens is proof that vacation does a body good. The actress showed off her fit physique in a nude-colored bikini in an Instagram photo of her trip to New Zealand, which she posted on Wednesday. "New Zealand I will miss you. It's been such a beautiful adventure," she captioned the photo of her wading in the water at Bethells Beach.

Every now and then, Hollywood is graced with a truly standout individual who, for whatever mixture of reasons, stands head and shoulders above the rest. They are the enduring icons, and the ones who remains classics of the silver screen even decades after their departure.
No other actress fits the role more definitively than Audrey Hepburn. Despite her diminutive stature, she made an enormous impact on the film industry from the outset, receiving equal billing alongside already established star Gregory Peck in her first starring role in Roman Holiday. For an actress who wasn’t even first choice for the role, it was a hell of an entrance to make.
But even though she may be renowned for genre-defining roles like socialite call-girl Holly Golightly and Cockney flower seller Eliza Doolittle, there remains far more to her character than what is seen on screen. A humanitarian, artist and dancer, »

I’m at a demographic disadvantage regarding The Duff, being neither an adolescent girl nor someone who enjoys comedies that aren’t funny. Based on the ads, you might expect this new teen clique comedy to have some bite – a Mean Girls for a new generation. Duff is an acronym for ‘Designated Ugly Fat Friend’, someone that more attractive girls let hang around with them for contrast – a “gatekeeper to better-looking friends” – which gives it about the most mean-spirited movie title of late. The title role is played by Mae Whitman, who is short, has distracting eyebrows, and is too old for the role, but she’s neither fat nor ugly, not anymore so than Audrey Hepburn was street trash because her face was dirty in My Fair Lady or Rachel Leigh Cook couldn’t get noticed because she wore glasses in She’S All That. Just once I’d »
