Elsa Martinelli obituary

14 July 2017 10:34 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Versatile star of Hollywood’s international years whose work spanned romantic comedies, period epics and spaghetti westerns

For more than a decade from the mid-1950s, the film star Elsa Martinelli, who has died aged 82, was one of the most prominent female Italian exports to Hollywood, along with her compatriots Sophia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida and Claudia Cardinale. In addition, Martinelli’s appearance seemed to be the sine qua non of Italian co-productions of period epics, romantic comedies, erotic sketch movies and spaghetti westerns.

It was during Hollywood’s international years that Martinelli starred opposite Kirk Douglas, John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Charlton Heston and Anthony Quinn, and, both in the Us and Italy, worked with directors such as André De Toth, Guy Hamilton, Dino Risi, Howard Hawks and Orson Welles. Her slim, elfin looks led to her being described by one newspaper in the 1950s as a “kind of Audrey Hepburn with sex appeal”.

Book Claims Anthony Quinn Predicted 9/11 in 1985 Painting

6 July 2017 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Many know actor Anthony Quinn for his indelible portrayals ranging from the title role in Zorba the Greek to his Oscar-winning takes on artist Paul Gauguin in Lust for Life and Mexican revolutionary Eufemio Zapata in Viva Zapata! What few know is that Quinn, who died in 2001, was a prolific sculptor and painter throughout his lifetime, selling a portrait to Douglas Fairbanks Sr. when he was just a teenager and later studying with legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Even fewer are aware of the notion that Quinn was clairvoyant — at least according to his onetime art dealer, Glenn Harte, whose »

The Savage Innocents

27 June 2017 9:08 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The original Quinn the Eskimo (no kidding) is another life-loving rough portrait from Anthony Quinn, in Nicholas Ray’s rather successful final spin as a writer-director. Despite some technical awkwardness, Ray’s sensitivity to outsider souls finds full expression. Humans don’t get any more ‘outside’ than Inuk, a primitive unequipped to deal with the modern world.

When In Disgrace With Fortune and Men's Eyes: Close-Up on Nicholas Ray's "In a Lonely Place"

2 June 2017 4:39 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Close-Up is a column that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Nicholas Ray's In a Lonely Place (1950) is playing  June 2 - July 2, 2017 on Mubi in the United Kingdom as part of the series The American Noir.Although mostly remembered now by the public for his 1955 classic Rebel Without a Cause, Nicholas Ray left behind him a legacy of over twenty feature films. A veritable cinematic explorer, Ray traversed genres ranging from noir, western (most notably his 1954 gender-bending cult Trucolor extravaganza Johnny Guitar), melodrama, epic and experimental film. He dared as few would to shoot in remote and forbidding locations such as the Arctic and Everglades National Park.  What are Ray’s films about? As in his signature piece Rebel, despite Ray’s wide-ranging endeavors in genre and subject matter we are often met with anti-hero protagonists who struggle and rail against authority while lamenting their meaningless and circumscribed existences. »

Willem Dafoe as Vincent Van Gogh in ‘At Eternity’s Gate’: Julian Schnabel Gives Us An Exclusive First Look

23 May 2017 2:37 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If anyone can show us something we haven’t seen before about Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh, it’s Oscar-nominated painter-filmmaker Julian Schnabel, who announced at Cannes that he will direct “At Eternity’s Gate” starring Willem Dafoe (who also stars in Director’s Fortnight entry “The Florida Project”) as the world’s most acclaimed Post-Impressionist painter, who died at age 37 before he was recognized for his gifts.

“I’ve been working on it for a couple of years,” said Schnabel on the phone from Montauk. “It has to do with trying to make a work of art. By making a film about him, I might shed a little light on what it is to be doing what he’s doing, who he really was, and what his issues were, what somebody needed to do to do what he did, and what he’s not going to do.”

Movie Review – La Strada (1954)

23 May 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

La Strada, 1954.

Directed by Federico Fellini.

Starring Giulietta Masina, Anthony Quinn, and Richard Basehart.

Synopsis:

A care-free girl is sold to a traveling entertainer, consequently enduring physical and emotional pain along the way.

Entire essays could be written on Giuletta Masina’s face alone. There’s a childlike quality to her puppy dog eyes, her ability to express such sadness with a simple tilt of the head, or exuberance with a blink. If there was ever a face for the big screen, it was hers, and with the re-release of Federico Fellini’s tragic masterpiece, La Strada, once again she can be celebrated.

Although married to Fellini, he never found a role more purely “Masina” than that of doleful reluctant clown Gelsomina. When news of the death of her sister reaches Gelsomina and her poverty stricken family, she is forcefully sold for 10,000 lire to manipulative, drunken strongman Zampano (an indelible Anthony Quinn). The two travel, »

La Strada review – Fellini masterpiece hits the road again

17 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The heart-wrenching story of a young woman sold by her mother to a strolling player is infused with humanity, theatricality and operatic pathos

It is 16 years since Federico Fellini’s 1954 masterpiece La Strada was last rereleased in British cinemas and now is another chance to be blown away by this film’s power, its simplicity, its humanity, its theatricality, its heart-wrenching operatic pathos. The crowd scenes are extraordinary: simply, the faces Fellini finds to put on screen, children and animals coming serendipitously into shot.

Guilietta Masina gives an artlessly Chaplinesque performance as Gelsomina, the elder daughter of a poor family – simple, solemn, bordering on what might today be called learning difficulties – who is sold by her mother for 10,000 lire to a lumbering, hatchet-faced strolling player called Zampanò, unforgettably played by Anthony Quinn. He intends to train her as his assistant for his cheesy “strongman” act, taking to the road, sleeping in his rackety caretta motorbike-van, »

Chuck: Director Philippe Falardeau On The Liev Schreiber Boxing Drama

8 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

French-Canadian filmmaker Philippe Falardeau has actually been making movies for almost twenty years, but it wasn’t until about 2011 when he first started getting attention for his drama Monsieur Lazhar, which was nominated for a foreign language Oscar. Falardeau’s 2014 movie The Good Lie, didn’t get much notice despite starring Reese Witherspoon and being released by Warner Bros. Therefore, he hasn’t quite made the waves into Hollywood as his country-mates Denis Villeneuve or Jean-Marc Vallée (Wild).

Undaunted, Falardeau decided to take on the story of Bayonne, New Jersey boxer Chuck Wepner, who famously went up against Ali at the height of his success in the ‘70s and managed to go 15 rounds before the fight was called due to Wepner’s famed “bleeding” during fights.  Wepner was alternately known as “The Bayonne Brawler” and “The Bayonne Bleeder.”

Scott’s TCM Fest Dispatch, Part Two: Economics

12 April 2017 9:22 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

The 1930s – more films about women, more films about working life. And often the two overlapped. You watch a film made today, it’s brutally clear that the people who made it rarely have to be anywhere In the ‘30s, at the height of the studio system, the entire creative force behind a picture worked 9-5 on the studio lot, just like anyone else. They had a workplace. And while many made a great deal more money than the characters they were depicting, they knew what it was to hold a job. That mindset, that constant awareness of money and office work and routine, bleeds into the pictures of the period.

Take a film like Rafter Romance, which played at TCM Classic Film Festival Friday morning. Ginger Rogers and Norman Foster star as two broke strangers living in the same apartment building (and they say people knew their neighbors back »

Oscars 2017: Michelle Williams in ‘Manchester by the Sea’ — How Rare Is a Nom Or Win For Short Screen Times?

2 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Manchester by the Sea’ (Courtesy: Amazon Studios)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

A fourth chance at an Oscar is right around the corner for Michelle Williams — despite how little screen time the actress racked up in Manchester by the Sea. Should the stars align, Williams will score a best supporting actress nomination at the 2017 ceremony. After you hear just how little of the film featured the 36-year-old, it might shock you — but let us just assure you that this isn’t a new accomplishment.

This site’s namesake, The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg, lists Williams as a frontrunner in the best supporting actress category this year alongside Viola Davis (Fences), Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Nicole Kidman (Lion), and Greta Gerwig (20th Century Women). The Montana-born actress has already scored three Oscar nominations: in the best supporting actress category for 2005’s Brokeback Mountain as well as in the best actress category »
