The Furniture: Decorating Madness in A Streetcar Named Desire

6 June 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"The Furniture" is our weekly series on Production Design. Here's Daniel Walber...

The 70th Tony Awards are in just a few days. I certainly can't be trusted with predictions, but I’ll make one guess. The award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play probably won’t be split three ways. That sort of near-impossible result has only occurred once, all the way back in 1948. The 2nd Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play was shared by Judith Anderson, Katharine Cornell, and Jessica Tandy. Tandy won for the original broadway production of A Streetcar Named Desire.

Of course, she didn’t get to be in the movie and so we will leave her behind. Elia Kazan’s film of Tennessee Williams’s masterpiece premiered less than two years after its Broadway run ended. Its success was that instant. It won four Oscars, though all but one was for acting. »

Retrospective: Looking at the Loss of Innocence in Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca

2 June 2016 2:34 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This is a Cinderella story about a girl who could never quite shake off the soot from her heels. The girl who found her prince, made her way to the kingdom, but still couldn’t fit into her glass slipper—at least, not the way the old princess did, not like Rebecca.

It may seem like Alfred Hitchcock’s 1940 murder mystery, Rebecca, is nothing more than a story about a jealous woman succumbing to her insecurities, but the truth is that Hitchcock wasn’t just a master of suspense—he was also the master of subtly injecting deeper layers of meaning into his movies. Yes, it’s true that the second Mrs. de Winter lets her obsession with her husband’s first spouse take over her life, but there’s something else at work here. It isn’t just envy that drives the second Mrs. de Winter mad, as in addition to her identity issues, »

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Hopes to Join Long Legacy of Aussies at the Oscars

11 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

With Mad Max: Fury Road in a great position to earn the most Oscar nomination of any film this year when the Academy announces its nominations this Thursday, director George Miller and crew look to join the long legacy of Aussies at the Oscars.

In addition to Miller, the film’s producer Doug Mitchell, co-writer Nico Lathouris, and cinematographer John Clement Seale all hail from the land down under and have high Oscar hopes when nominations are announced this Thursday as the film has been a massive success with critics and audiences alike and earned two Golden Globe nominations for best picture and best director.

Miller and company would hardly be the first Aussies to be noticed by the Academy. Massive stars such as Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman, and Cate Blanchett all call Australia home and have taken home Oscars, and Blanchett seems likely to »

The Red House

Written and directed by Delmer Daves

U.S.A., 1947

*It should be noted that in order to properly analyze the heart of the picture’s themes, certain important plot points are divulged in the review below. 

Sequestered away from most of the town they live in, the Morgan’s operate a modest but efficient little farm. Patriarch Pete (Edward G. Robinson), slightly handicapped by a wooden leg resulting from an incident many years ago, remains hard at work but evidently could use some assistance. Enter young Nath Storm (Lon McCallister), a boy from school that Pete’s shy adopted daughter, Meg (Allene Roberts) befriends and fancies. Meg introduces Nath to Pete, the latter reluctantly agreeing to give the youth a job. Whilst the first day goes swimmingly, that evening proves the fire starter that complicates each of their lives. Nath insists on taking a short cut through the woods, »
