Valley of the Dolls

20 hours ago | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

High camp or just plain trash? A cultural-cinematic swamp in perfectly rotten taste, this adaptation of Jacqueline Susann's supermarket 'dirty book' seeks out tawdry sleaze like no American movie had before.

Emmys 2016: How the Awards Show Managed to Not Suck This Year

19 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Now there's something you don't see too often — an Emmy night that actually makes good television. The Emmys are usually one of those pop-culture Zen koans: Why is an award show for TV such a painful little hate-watch? But this year's model was easily the most entertaining Emmy bash since Conan O'Brien hosted in 2008, a welcome change after last year's debacle. Jimmy Kimmel kept things moving and got the whole event done and dusted in three hours — with a minute or two to spare, actually. Yes, there was still plenty »

Garry Shandling, Gene Wilder and Anton Yelchin were among several late celebrities that received a touching tribute at the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday. Henry Winkler - the Fonz himself - introduced the emotional segment, honoring director and Happy Days creator Garry Marshall before a slideshow of names flickered across the screen."He was alive, he was a generosity of spirit and knowledge. I should know - he gave me my career. And I will tell you that anybody who was lucky enough to meet him, he changed their life," shared Winkler of Marshall, who died in July.

It Came From The Tube: Ghost Story / Circle Of Fear (1972)

11 September 2016 10:06 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

There’s the usual stockpile when we mention horror anthology TV series. Twilight Zone sits firmly on top for most, and then follows Outer Limits, Thriller, Tales from the Crypt, Masters of Horror, Night Gallery, and on and on. (The rankings are up to you.) And sometimes, way down in the pile of yellowed TV Guides lays one that time forgot (and Nielsen killed). Witness NBC’s Ghost Story/Circle of Fear (1972), a one season and done series that provided solid stories well told over 23 episodes.

If the title seems confusing, it’s because it was known as Ghost Story for the first 13 episodes (plus pilot), and then Circle of Fear for the last 9. Low ratings prompted the name change, which proceeded when the show returned from the Christmas break. Rotund host Sebastian Cabot also didn’t survive the retooling.

So what sank the show? ABC aired Room 222/The Odd Couple opposite it, »

Remembering Michael Cimino, Dead at 77

2 July 2016 2:47 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It had been a long time since I was in the same room with director Michael Cimino. My first job out of Nyu Cinema Studies was in the publicity department at United Artists in New York, where I witnessed the long delays on Cimino’s follow-up to his Oscar-winning 1978 anti-war diatribe “The Deer Hunter,” the period western “Heaven’s Gate.”

The director got caught up in chasing authenticity in the myriad details of the production, training for weeks the cast led by Kris Kristofferson and Isabelle Huppert to roller-skate for one scene — and demanding endless retakes until he shot more feet of film, over 1 million, than even Francis Coppola did on another memorably out-of-control UA movie, “Apocalypse Now.” The original $11 million budget bloated to $32 million (Cimino’s figure), as recounted in Steven Bach’s “Final Cut: Art, Money and Ego in the Making of ‘Heaven’s Gate.’

Kieslowski, ‘Cat People,’ and the Coen Brothers Lead The Criterion Collection’s September Line-Up

16 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

September tends to be the time of year that movie studios start busting out the big guns, and 2016 finds the Criterion Collection following suit, as the boutique home video label will be releasing one of the most significant cinematic landmarks on which they’ve yet to put their stamp.

Krzysztof Kieślowski’s mammoth “Dekalog” makes the company’s September lineup something of a bumper crop in and of itself, but — lucky for us — it’ll be accompanied by an essential Kenji Mizoguchi classic, two ample doses of Jacqueline Susann-inspired campiness, some old school Coen brothers and much more. Check out the full release slate below, listed in rough order of our excitement for each title.

1.) “Dekalog” (dir. Krzysztof Kieślowski, 1988), Spine #837

This would be at the very top of the list regardless of what else Criterion is releasing in September. One of the greatest achievements in all of film (though »

10 May 2016 3:11 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

William Schallert and Patty Duke.

 

Popular character actor William Schallert has died at age 93, having been active in the acting community right up through recent years. Schallert was a familiar face to retro movie and TV fans, even if his name was not as well known. He is remembered by many for playing the harried father of teenage Patty Duke in the 1960s sitcom "The Patty Duke Show". (In a tragic coincidence, Ms. Duke also recently passed away.) Schallert was much beloved by science fiction and horror fans for his appearances in TV series such as "Commander Cody", "Space Patrol", "Men Into Space" and "The Twilight Zone".

Artist Pete Emslie's tribute to Schallert. (For more of Emslie's artistic creations, visit The Cartoon Cave.)

In feature films Schallert appeared in the cult classics "Them!", "The Incredible Shrinking Man", "Colossus: The Forbin Project" as well as the 1983 feature film "Twilight Zone: The Movie »

William Schallert, Former SAG President and ‘Patty Duke Show’ Star, Dies at 93

9 May 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Former SAG president William Schallert, best known as TV dad Martin Lane on “The Patty Duke Show,” died Sunday in Pacific Palisades, Calif. He was 93. His son Edwin confirmed his death.

His most memorable role was as beloved TV dad Martin Lane on “The Patty Duke Show” (1963-66). The performance still resonates: TV Guide slotted him at No. 39 on its list of Greatest TV Dads of All Time in 2004.

Schallert would be familiar to many for his memorable appearance on the famous “The Trouble With Tribbles” episode of the original “Star Trek” series: He played Nilz Baris, the agriculture undersecretary who is outraged to discover that the furry, endlessly reproducing aliens have devoured all the grain.

Schallert served as SAG president from 1979-81 and oversaw a three-month strike in 1980 that centered around rates and residuals for pay TV, videocassettes and videodiscs and included a successful boycott of the year’s primetime Emmy Awards. »

27 April 2016 12:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Screenwriter A. Martin Zweiback died last Saturday in Santa Monica, Calif. He was 85.

Zweiback got his first big break in Hollywood with the 1984 film “Grace Quigley,” starring Katharine Hepburn and Nick Nolte. Hepburn was visiting the home of George Cukor when Zweiback threw the film’s script over Cukor’s fence. By the time he made it home, he had a call from Hepburn waiting on his answering machine.

Directed by Tom Harvey, “Grace Quigley” was the first film where a director and writer edited a release of the finished film.

Zweiback’s other works include “Cactus in the Snow” (1971), which he directed, and “Gorp” (1980). He wrote screenplays for multiple TV series in the ’70s such as “Kung Fu,” “James at 16” and “The Paper Chase.”

He also wrote “Me Natalie,” Al Pacino’s first film, starring Patty Duke, who received a Golden Globe for the role.

On Saturday, the world said goodbye to Patty Duke. The Oscar-winning actress, who died in late March at 69, was honored at a memorial service in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, where she had built a peaceful life over the last 30 years alongside husband Mike Pearce and their four dogs (and where she was known, simply, as Anna, her birth name). The public service, at Lake City Church, was attended by friends and family alike. Melissa Gilbert, who starred alongside Duke in 1979's The Miracle Worker, said, "From the moment we met, we were thick as thieves and we remained that way for 40 years. »

Beauty vs Beast: Weimar Memories

11 April 2016 11:44 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here, willkommen and bienvenue, happy to see you! I trust you've all left your troubles outside? Today is the 84th birthday of the Master of Ceremonies himself, Herr Joel Grey, and so we're feeling frisky for some time inside the Kit Kat Club. As an aside, have any of you read Grey's recent autobiography? I highly recommend it if you haven't -- he's lived a hell of a life and doesn't hold back. (I recently shared my favorite tidbit from the book over at my site.)

Grey originated the role of the Mc on stage (and won a Tony for it) and was the only person carried over from the cast to the film (much to Bob Fosse's chagrin), which led to him also winning the Oscar for the role. (This came up recently when Patty Duke, who also won both a Tony and an Oscar for the same role, »
