‘Conan the Barbarian’ at 35: How Darth Vader Helped Arnold Schwarzenegger Beat the Muscle Man Stereotype

‘Conan the Barbarian’ at 35: How Darth Vader Helped Arnold Schwarzenegger Beat the Muscle Man Stereotype
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s films have grossed $1.9 billion in North America. Among his classics are James Cameron’s 1984’s “The Terminator”; 1991’s “The Terminator 2: Judgment Day”; and 1994’s “True Lies,” as well as such hits as 1987’s “Predator” and 2012’s “The Expendables 2.”

His movie catch phrases such as “I’ll be back”; “Hasta la Vista, Baby”; and “Get to the chopper” have become part of the pop culture lexicon.

Schwarzenegger even served as the Governor of California from 2003 to 2011. And has recently has gone mano y mano in a Twitter feud with President Trump. Guess who won?

But would he have been as big a star — let alone as governor — without his breakout role in John Milius’ “Conan the Barbarian”? The violent, erotic R-rated sword-and-fantasy adventure based on the stories of 1930’s pulp fiction writer Robert E. Howard opened in 1,400 theaters on May 14, 1982. Though reviews were decidedly mixed — Variety

Burt Reynolds Really Hates His Infamous Nude Cosmopolitan Photo Shoot: ‘What An Egomaniac’
Burt Reynolds‘ infamous 1972 nude photo shoot for Cosmopolitan may have flown off newsstands, but the star isn’t exactly proud of the spread.

During an appearance on Yahoo!’s The Katie Couric Interview to promote his new film, Dog Years, Reynolds said of being a centerfold, “I look back on it and shudder. I just shudder.”

Riverdale: the long, strange history of Archie Comics on TV

Chris Cummins Jan 24, 2017

A look-back at the previous attempts to bring Archie to TV before they got it right with Riverdale...

When Riverdale premieres on the CW on January 26th, it will mark a milestone for Archie Comics - the first time in the company's 75-year history that its characters will truly shine on television. A mix of gleefully ridiculous kitsch with standout performances and some truly smart writing, the series is poised to be 2017's breakout TV hit.

That said, it took a while for Archie to get to this point. There have been many attempts to bring Archie and his friends to TV before, but these all suffered for either being shoddily animated (the various 1960s cartoons), misguided (1990's Archie: To Riverdale and Back Again), or just plain, um, weird (the X-Files cash-in Archie's Weird Mysteries

Burt Reynolds' Ex-Wife Reveals Why She's Selling Everything He Gave Her
Loni Anderson and Burt Reynolds had one of the nastiest splits in Hollywood history, and now they're both selling off some very personal items. Loni told Et why she's auctioning off all the stuff Burt gave her.

"About a year ago we were having dinner with our son," said Loni, who adopted a 26-year-old son with Burt. "Jon Voight was at the dinner with us, and we were all talking about all the stuff that you accumulate over the years. We'd been thinking about scaling back: 'What are we gonna do with all this stuff? Do you have a museum for yourself? No.' And so what are you gonna do with it? Share it."

Before their split in 1994, Burt spent millions showering Loni with gifts, including diamonds, paintings and furs, but Loni's most cherished item from the collection is her 1988 wedding dress.

Burt Reynolds reacted Tuesday to speculation that his upcoming Las Vegas auction of more than 600 personal items -- including his 1998 Golden Globe for his role in Boogie Nights -- is a sign that the 78-year-old actor is in serious financial need.

I am simply selling some of my memorabilia that I have enjoyed for so many years but do not have use nor room for them anymore."

"Quite frankly, I am sick of so many pictures of myself in my own home," he adds.

According to Museum of Television president James Comisar, Reynolds is sitting on a gold mine of Hollywood memorabilia.

"I have been in the auction community for 25 years and I've never seen an opportunity like this," Comisar told us. "My guess is that these artifacts offered in the auction will go for ten times their estimate."

The auction will take place at The Palms in Las Vegas on Dec. 11 and 12 and will include not only his awards but his personal wardrobe and Western-themed decorative arts such as an embroidered Western shirt from his role in Smokey and the Bandit II.
