See This or Die: 'They Shoot Horses, Don't They?'

23 March 2015 1:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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 Exuberant in Gigi Sneak Peek on ABC’s Gma (watch!)

16 March 2015 8:57 AM, PDT | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

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. [...] »

Wright Was Earliest Surviving Best Supporting Actress Oscar Winner

15 March 2015 12:05 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

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.[1] 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.[2] 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, »

Lauren Bacall's Grown-Up Fashion on Display in Rigorously Curated New Show

10 March 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

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 »

From Julie Andrews to Carrie Underwood, 50 Years of Solving a Problem Like Maria

6 March 2015 4:25 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

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. »

Starmaker Allégret: From Gay Romance with 'Uncle' (and Nobel Winner) Gide to Simon's Movie Mentor

27 February 2015 9:46 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

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.[1] 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 »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Audrey Hepburn

21 February 2015 7:26 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

AP/AP

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, »

The Duff – The Review

20 February 2015 6:01 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

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.

Oscars: Red Carpet Has its Own Share of Surprising Turns

17 February 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From navel-grazing necklines (Jennifer Aniston’s vintage John Galliano at the Screen Actors Guild Awards) to thigh-grazing hemlines (Madonna’s Givenchy bodysuit at the Grammys), the stars have been pulling out all the stops. If this year’s awards season offers any clues as to what we can expect on Oscar’s big night, it’s that we should expect the unexpected.

“Everyone is doing something different,” says Brit designer Emilia Wickstead, who created Diane Kruger’s stunning Golden Globes gown. “There are so many stories being told on the red carpet.”

From Kubrick to Marilyn Monroe, Oscar Has a Stellar List of Shut-Outs

13 February 2015 4:54 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are 195 individuals nominated for Oscar this year. And when the winners are named Feb. 22, they will become part of film history, joining such greats as Billy Wilder, Ingrid Bergman, Ben Hecht and Walt Disney.

But 80% of the contenders will go home empty-handed. However, there is good news: They are in good company as well.

Here is a sampling of nominees that didn’t win: “Citizen Kane,” “Chinatown” and “Star Wars”; directors Alfred Hitchcock, Howard Hawks, Stanley Kubrick and Ingmar Bergman; writers Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller, Dashiell Hammett, John Steinbeck, Graham Greene, Harold Pinter and David Mamet; actors Gloria Swanson in “Sunset Blvd.”; Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”; and Peter O’Toole in “Lawrence of Arabia.”

They managed to do Ok, though.

It’s hard to say why they didn’t win. Sometimes tastes change. Sometimes there’s too much competition in one year. Frank Capra’s 1939 “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Cinderella’

13 February 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In Disney’s new live-action “Cinderella,” four mice are ballooned into elegant white horses, two lizards are forced to serve as makeshift footmen, and an oblivious old goose gets zapped into driving a pumpkin carriage. But as the American Humane Assn. can attest, no animals were harmed in the making of this delightful if overly safe update of the gold-standard toon classic. More importantly, the underlying property emerges untarnished, as director Kenneth Branagh reverently reimagines Charles Perrault’s classic fairy tale for a new generation the world over, spelling countless opportunities to exploit fresh interest in the story throughout the Disney universe.

The latest in a trend to rework the most precious treasures in the Mouse House vault, “Cinderella” is by far the studio’s most calculated retelling yet, to the extent that those who know the toon by heart may find Chris Weitz’s serviceable script a wee bit dull. »
