Oscar Winner Went All the Way from Wyler to Coppola in Film Career Spanning Half a Century

11 March 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright and Matt Damon in 'The Rainmaker' Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright vs. Samuel Goldwyn: Nasty Falling Out.") "I'd rather have luck than brains!" Teresa Wright was quoted as saying in the early 1950s. That's understandable, considering her post-Samuel Goldwyn choice of movie roles, some of which may have seemed promising on paper.[1] Wright was Marlon Brando's first Hollywood leading lady, but that didn't help her to bounce back following the very public spat with her former boss. After all, The Men was released before Elia Kazan's film version of A Streetcar Named Desire turned Brando into a major international star. Chances are that good film offers were scarce. After Wright's brief 1950 comeback, for the third time in less than a decade she would be gone from the big screen for more than a year. »

Interview with Author Slide: Was There a 'Sunset Blvd.' Auteur?

10 February 2015 11:44 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Billy Wilder screenwriter-producer partner Charles Brackett remembered: Q&A with film historian Anthony Slide (photo: Charles Brackett ca. early 1940s) Six-time Academy Award winner Billy Wilder is a film legend. He's renowned for classics such as The Major and the Minor, Sunset Blvd., Some Like It Hot, and The Apartment. The fact that Wilder was not the sole creator of these movies is all but irrelevant to graduates from the Auteur School of Film History. Wilder directed, co-wrote, and at times produced his films. That should suffice. For auteurists, perhaps. But not for those interested in film history facts. That's why the Charles Brackett diaries offer such a refreshing glimpse into his and Billy Wilder's moviemaking process. Now, Charles who? Oscar winner Charles Brackett Charles Brackett (1892-1969) just happens to be the – largely forgotten – guy who co-created with Billy Wilder (and, at times, with a third screenwriting partner) classics »

5 Easy Ways "Magic Mike Xxl" Could Be Better Than the First

4 February 2015 10:56 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The first trailer for "Magic Mike Xxl" is here, and it turns out we may be in for a stunning and smutty treat. But are we? Check out the promising trailer above. But I demand that the "Magic Mike" sequel trump the first in a bunch of key ways. Here are five easy steps the movie can take to really own us.  5. Keep most of the melodrama inside the strip club. Not that I don't appreciate drug-fueled party scenes with the most symmetrical male strippers in cinematic history, but the "drama" of the first "Magic Mike" movie seemed awfully staid and expected when juxtaposed with its fresh take on male objectification. If you've read "Candy Girl," Diablo Cody's book on stripping, you'd know there's plenty of dicey activity in the stripping world that went unreported in the first film. What about the requirement of strippers to use their own tips to pay the DJ? »

Matt Bomer To Play Montgomery Clift

8 January 2015 7:09 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"White Collar" and "The Normal Heart" star Matt Bomer is set to play hunky 1950s actor Montgomery Clift in an HBO TV movie.

Set after he broke through to stardom in the John Wayne western "Red River" the story centers on the complicated life of Clift (Bomer) as he becomes deeply involved with a young Elizabeth Taylor following the filming of "A Place in the Sun".

The closeted Clift went on to an iconic role in "From Here to Eternity" in 1953, but was caught up in a car crash in 1956 (at the age of 35). He survived, but was partly paralysed and he became an addict. Ultimately he died of a heart attack at 45.

"Love is Strange" duo Ira Sachs and Mauricio Zacharias are set to pen a re-write of a script by Christopher Lovick, but no director is attached as yet. Tony Lipp, Alix Madigan, Michael Din and Larry Moss will executive produce. »

Many of TVLine’s regulars were on-site this year, from the stars of Once Upon a Time (that’d be real-life Prince Charming and Snow White, Josh Dallas and Ginnifer Goodwin) to some of our relatively newer faces like Faking It‘s Rita Volk. »

Matt Bomer's long-rumoured Montgomery Clift biopic has been picked up by HBO.

The movie will mark Bomer's latest collaboration with the pay channel following his Emmy-nominated performance in The Normal Heart.

Bomer had been attached to star as Hollywood legend Clift dating back to when the project started as a possible independent film.

Monty Clift will be directed by Larry Moss (The Syringa Tree) from a script by Christopher Lovick, reports Deadline.

Love Is Strange duo Ira Sachs and Mauricio Zacharias have been brought in to re-work Lovick's screenplay.

Clift became one of Hollywood's brightest stars in the 1950s through critically-lauded performances in A Place in the Sun, From Here to Eternity and The Young Lions.

The actor's career spiralled as his descent into substance abuse worsened in the wake of a 1956 car crash that caused partial facial paralysis.
