All Bets Are Off: Top Ten Films About Las Vegas

1 March 2015 9:19 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Las Vegas…the hotbed haven where dreams of high rollers are realized among the glitzy bright lights, the element of chance and luck and the adrenaline for instant fortune. But there is a deception to Sin City that is overlooked–the isolation of a gambler’s anxiety and desperation, the false sense of confidence at the craps table and the swinging doors of the psychological lows more so than the rewarding highs.

Still, Las Vegas has its excitable aura–both innocence and guilt–where one arrives to skillfully manufacture their financial profile or go bust. In some instances, the hedonistic expectations are defined in other fun, precarious ways. It is no wonder that Hollywood has come calling to put its distinctive spin on the capital city of adult entertainment. For decades, the movies have made Las Vegas its backdrop for wonderment, degradation, intrigue, comical curiosity and soul-searching revelations.

Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me documentary review: music hath power

17 February 2015 4:40 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A harrowing yet also inspiring portrait of the American pop music icon as he copes with the rapid deterioration of Alzheimer’s. I’m “biast” (pro): grew up listening to Campbell’s music

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

If you’re under 40, you’re too young to remember that it was Glen Campbell who made country music cool in the 1970s with melodic and melancholy pop-infused tunes such as “Rhinestone Cowboy” and “Southern Nights.” Previously, in the 60s, he’d been a session musician who can be heard — although he wasn’t always credited — on some of the biggest and best known songs ever from artists including Bobby Darin, The Monkees, Nat King Cole, Phil Spector, and Elvis Presley. He was even a touring member of the Beach Boys in the mid 60s. His impact on American pop music is probably incalculable. »

Lizabeth Scott, Film Noir Star, Dead At Age 92

7 February 2015 9:38 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Lizabeth Scott, the sultry blonde who epitomized cinematic "bad girls" in film noir productions, has passed away at age 92. Scott specialized in playing hard-bitten, self-confident femme fatales usually from the wrong side of the tracks. Her leading men included Robert Mithchum, Burt Lancaster, Michael Caine, Charlton Heston, Elvis Presley, Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis and Kirk Douglas. Her film credits include "Loving You", "Dark City", "I Walk Alone", "Too Late for Tears", "Pitfall" and "Scared Stiff". Her last screen appearance was in director Mike Hodges' acclaimed 1972 cult movie "Pulp", which was a send-up of the film noir genre. Scott's career began to fade in the late 1950s though she did make occasional appearances in TV series in the following years. In more recent years, she occasionally appeared at film festivals to discuss her work and career. Click here for more.  »

Lizabeth Scott, Husky-Voiced Film Noir Stalwart, Dies at 92

6 February 2015 8:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Lizabeth Scott, the blonde, husky-voiced actress who was a staple of film noir films such as “The Strange Love of Martha Ivers,” “Dead Reckoning,” “I Walk Alone,” “Dark City” and “The Racket,” died on Jan. 31 in Los Angeles. Cedars-Sinai Medical Center confirmed the death, the New York Times said, but would not provide details. She was 92.

Scott also starred in the the 1957 Elvis Presley film “Loving You.”

With her blonde tresses but throaty voice, she was often compared to Lauren Bacall and Veronica Lake, but she did not have quite the presence or the acting skills of either. Nevertheless, she did not deserve her treatment at the hands of then tabloid Confidential, which published a story in 1955 implying sexual improprieties, though her career was already on the wane at that point. She sued, and a high-profile trial resulted but ended in a mistrial.
