Remembering Mary Tyler Moore: Not Only ‘Brilliantly Funny,’ but Vulnerable

31 January 2017 10:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

About halfway through the seven-season run of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” a week came when Moore had to spend a few days in the hospital for a minor procedure.

Work on the CBS comedy continued Monday through Thursday, with co-star Betty White subbing for Moore during the table read, script revisions, and blocking. By Friday, Moore was back on the CBS Radford lot for the final run-through and taping — and she nailed every line and set-up with ease.

“She was perfect,” recalls Jay Sandrich, who directed 119 of the 168 episodes of “Mary Tyler Moore” during its 1970-77 run.

Sandrich says his memory of that week came back to him as he grappled with the news of her death Jan. 25 at the age of 80.

The depth of Moore’s understanding of her TV alter-ego, the plucky Mary Richards, was a gift to everyone who worked on the show. “Everybody loved her,” Sandrich »

31 January 2017 8:33 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Which actress is blazing a trail for those who follow her? (Editor’s Note: This question was inspired by the recent loss of Mary Tyler Moore.)

Mindy Newell: Utopia, Dystopia, Death…and Riverdale

30 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Sir John Hurt died a few days ago. One of Great Britain’s finest actors, his rise started with his turn as Robert Rich, a courtier and lawyer in Henry VIII’s court, in Fred Zimmerman’s A Man for All Seasons. The movie, based upon Robert Bolt’s play about the fall of, British Lord Chancellor Thomas More, could be considered a science fiction story as it deals with a perfectly harmonious island society that was nowhere to be found in More’s 16th century – or in the 21st, for that matter.

Sir John, in his long and brilliant career, was no stranger to our brand of cultural pop geekdom. Besides his outstanding turn as the War Doctor on the 50th anniversary special Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor – he recreated the War Doctor on four sets of audio plays for Big Finish; three are already out, »
