Throwback Thursday: Shirley MacLaine's 'What a Way to Go!' Premieres at 1964 New York World's Fair

18 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the May 2 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Hollywood's glitziest contribution to the 1964 New York World's Fair was staging the black-tie premiere of What a Way to Go! on its 646-acre grounds. It was quite the production: Stars and guests passed through turnstiles at the Times Square subway station, then were serenaded by a guitarist/bassist/bongo drummer trio as they boarded a specially outfitted Irt 7 Flushing Express to Queens.  Photos: Unseen Photos of Young Michael Douglas, Shirley Temple, Elvis Presley The bouffant hairdo of star Shirley MacLaine, then 30, rose so high it brushed against the balloons floating on the ceiling

Movie News: Classic Movie Star Mickey Rooney Dies at 93

7 April 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Hollywood – He was the biggest star the world, the box office champion from 1939 to 1941. “Wow, spanning two decades,” Bart Simpson said. Mickey Rooney lived long enough to work on silent films, be the biggest star in the world and do a voiceover on “The Simpsons.” Not bad for one lifetime. Mickey Rooney died of natural causes in his North Hollywood home on April 6th. He was 93.

Rooney was a actor who worked nearly his entire life in film, television and stage. His active career as a performer spanned 92 years, and he was one of the last few in history to have worked in the silent film era. His filmography lists over 200 roles, and he also appeared in vaudeville, on Broadway and several television series. He outlived and outperformed virtually all the classic movie stars from Hollywood’s golden era of the studio system from the 1930s to the 1950s.

The Best of “Movie Poster of the Day,” Part 6

4 April 2014 8:56 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: German poster for Last Year At Marienbad (Alain Resnais, France, 1961), artist: Tostmann.

Over the past three months of Movie Poster of the Day, the two most popular posters by far were two beautiful (each in their own very distinct way) posters that I posted in memoriam of two dearly departed auteurs: Alan Resnais and Harold Ramis. And two other posters among the most popular (i.e. most liked or reblogged) were those posted in celebration of Philip Seymour Hoffman, including Chris Ware’s lovely 2007 design for The Savages, one of my favorite posters of last decade. So, if nothing else, Movie Poster of the Day has recorded the saddest losses of the year. (Not forgetting the adorable Swedish poster I posted for Shirley Temple which didn’t make the Top 20.)

I’m happy to see a number of new posters here: a very popular Dutch Wolf of Wall Street, »

A Story of Children and Film review 'Mosaic chosen with masterly care'

3 April 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Gentle and ruminative, this documentary from Mark Cousins takes a rich and clever look at how children appear on screen

This utterly beguiling and idiosyncratic cine-essay by critic and film-maker Mark Cousins is a personal journey through the subject of children on film. It was first shown at last year's Cannes film festival and is now on release here: a brilliant mosaic of clips, images and moments chosen with masterly flair, and accompanied by Cousins' own gentle, ruminative, almost murmured voiceover. Just as in his mighty television series, A Story of Film, Cousins dances nimbly between films old and new, cleverly intuits the connections, and digresses into the history of art, as well as into that of his own family.

A Story of Children and Film could be read as simply the story of Cousins himself, through film, and his own refusal to reproduce the cynical/knowing tone of modern grownup criticism. »

'Mixology' stars Vanessa Lengies, Craig Frank respond to critics and preview their 'fun' episode

19 March 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

ABC's new comedy "Mixology" has received more than its fair share of negative reviews, but that hasn't affected two of its stars. Vanessa Lengies (Kacey) and Craig Frank (Cal) are okay with some of the heat their series has been getting.

In fact, it doesn't bother them at all. "Hey, people have opinions. That's why they were hired, to have opinions," Frank tells Zap2it. "Whether they went one way or the other, if you find the show to be something you like, that's fine, or if it's not something you like, that's fine too."

Lengies hopes that viewers stick through some more episodes to truly get a feel for what they're trying to achieve. "I think our whole show is like a movie. It's like an epic adventure that's split into 13 episodes," Lengies tells Zap2it. "It's a different format than other shows and I like that it's different. »

Bob Thomas, Veteran Entertainment Journalist, Dies

Bob Thomas, the tireless, longtime Associated Press reporter who kept the world informed on the comings and goings of Hollywood's biggest stars, from Clark Gable to Tom Cruise, died Friday. He was 92. Thomas died of age-related illnesses at his Encino, Calif., home, his daughter Janet Thomas said. A room filled with his interview subjects would have made for the most glittering of ceremonies: Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe, Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, Groucho Marx and Marlon Brando, Walt Disney and Fred Astaire.

Harold Lloyd And The Birth Of Romantic Comedy: A Conversation With Suzanne Lloyd

11 March 2014 3:29 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Cinema Retro is pleased to announce the premiere of a new column: Criterion Corner, which will highlight reviews and interviews pertaining to new Criterion video releases. For our debut column, we are honored to have Raymond Benson's exclusive interview with Suzanne Lloyd, granddaughter of legendary comedy star Harold Lloyd.

By Raymond Benson

On the advent of The Criterion Collection’s upcoming release of Harold Lloyd’s The Freshman on Blu-ray and DVD, it’s high time that the silent film star gain some recognition from at least two generations that missed out on seeing this master comedian in action. Last year’s release of Safety Last! certainly got the ball rolling, and with Lloyd’s granddaughter, Suzanne Lloyd, working as the trustee to his film library and head of Harold Lloyd Entertainment, Inc., the goal is to bring the pictures of the “third genius” (after Chaplin and Keaton) to a wider audience, »

While we celebrated film's crowning achievements at the 2014 Oscars last night, it's important to remember the talents that we've lost over this past year. Last night's Academy Awards In Memorium Tribute featured 47 names, including James Gandolfini, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Peter O'Toole, Paul Walker and Shirley Temple. Read More: Sarah Jones, Crew Member Killed on Set, Honored at Academy Awards In many ways, it was a tragic year for film, with a number of artists leaving well before their time. It was certainly a poignant moment as the tribute closed with lingering portrait of Phillip Seymour Hoffman. A few notable names didn't make it into the piece. 'Glee' star, Cory Monteith, former 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' star, James Avery, and the prolific author, Tom Clancy went unacknowledged.  Watch the full tribute below: »

The death of Shirley Temple, one of the last great stars of Hollywood's Golden Age, came soon after the passing of two other classic actors, Joan Fontaine and Peter O'Toole. While we mourn their losses, there are still more actors from that era alive than you may realize, including Fontaine's older sister Olivia De Havilland, the oldest living Oscar winner, Luise Rainer, and "Vertigo" star Kim Novak -- who you may have seen at the Oscars this year.

Let's celebrate the handful of tough guys, musical dames and at least one last living child star from the early days of Hollywood that are still with us: We found 25 stars over age 80 in all, many of whom are still very busy acting. »

Bette Midler'.s '.Wind Beneath My Wings'. Performance Receives Standing Ovation At The Oscars

2 March 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Better Midler appeared on stage at the 86th Academy Awards following the show’s annual In Memoriam segment to sing her heart-wrenching classic, “Wind Beneath My Wings.”

Bette Midler's Oscar Performance

Midler, as elegant as ever, graced the Oscars with her legendary talent. The 68-year-old singer and actress took to the stage in a custom Alaia gown paired with Christian Louboutin shoes. Belting out the emotional ballad, Midler appeared to tear up, while leaving few dry eyes in the audience. At the end of the performance, she received an enthusiastic standing ovation.

The standing ovation caused Midler, a three-time Grammy winner and two-time Oscar nominee, to feel like an Olympian.

Everyone wants to know what I said off mic at the end of the song. I said "I feel like I just won the Olympics!"...

Thanks to an online campaign drawing attention to her death, Sarah Jones, who died in a tragic accident last week on the set of 'Midnight Rider,' was memorialized during tonight's Academy Awards show. Though her photo wasn't featured during the In Memoriam montage that included Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Walker, Peter O'Toole, James Gandolfini, Shirley Temple, Harold Ramis and others that Hollywood last this year, Jones' name was listed on a bumper at the end of Bette Midler's performance. Viewers were directed to a gallery of photos on the Oscar website, which featured Jones. Jones, 27, a camera assistant on the production, was killed during production of the Greg Allman biopic. Six other crew members were also injured. The production has been halted while an investigation can take place. An online petition to have her featured during the Academy Awards Memoriam Tribute collected nearly 62,000 signatures. The Slates for Sarah Facebook page, »

Shirley Temple: Academy pays tribute at 2014 Oscars

2 March 2014 7:56 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Child star of 1930s and 40s remembered at Oscars ceremony after her death earlier this year

• Xan Brooks liveblogs the ceremony

• Full list of winners as they're announced

The Oscars paid tribute to Shirley Temple, the Oscar-winning child star who died last year – devoting part of its traditional In Memoriam section to the actor.

Temple was given an honorary juvenile Oscar in 1935 at the age of six, after a string of box-office successes including Bright Eyes and Baby Take a Bow helped to distract America in the throes of the Depression. Her screen career flourished during the 1930s, before taking a downturn during the second world war, followed by her official retirement in 1950. Apart from a few subsequent TV appearances, Temple turned to a political career, and served as Us ambassador to both Ghana and Czechoslovakia, among other high-profile posts.

Temple, who used the name Temple Black after her 1950 marriage to Charles Alden Black, »

Oscars Facts: 23 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Academy Awards

1 March 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The 86th Academy Awards are this Sunday evening, and we're counting down the minutes!

We've already given you our Oscar predictions, and now we're bringing you a few of the best (and craziest) Academy Awards facts. From the first Best Actor winner to the "one dollar" Oscar rule, here are 23 things you (probably) don't know about the Oscars.

1. The youngest Oscar winner was Tatum O'Neal, who won Best Supporting Actress for "Paper Moon" (1973) when she was only 10 years old. Shirley Temple won the short-lived Juvenile Award at 6 years old.

2. At 82, Christopher Plummer became the oldest person to win an Academy Award. He received the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his work in "Beginners" (2010) opposite Ewan McGregor.

3. After winning Best Actress for "Cabaret" (1972), Liza Minnelli became (and still is) the only Oscar winner whose parents both earned Oscars. Her mother, Judy Garland, received an honorary award in 1939 and her father, Vincente Minnelli, »

Oscars 2014: The 18 Things You're Most Likely to See at This Year's Academy Awards

27 February 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

I don't envy Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, the producers of Sunday's Oscar telecast. They have an impossible job, with a variety of incompatible constituencies to please -- the Academy old guard, ABC executives, fans of the competing movies, people who didn't like any of the competing movies, the young, the old, the domestic audience, the foreign audience, and the TV critics. Last year, they came up with one of the higher-rated Oscar shows in recent years, but they also took flak for the often deliberately tasteless antics of emcee Seth "I Saw Your Boobs" MacFarlane.

This year, they've gone the opposite way, hiring Ellen DeGeneres, who proved she can be blandly inoffensive to a worldwide audience when she hosted the show in 2007. Of course, the show will still be a Frankenstein-monster of parts that don't really fit together, there will be too many awards given to too many people you've never heard of, »
