1941: A Great Comedy For Slim Pickens Day

27 August 2017 11:12 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

On Monday, August 28, 2017, Turner Classic Movies will devote an entire day of their “Summer Under the Stars” series to the late, great Louis Burton Lindley Jr. If that name doesn’t sound familiar, well, then just picture the fella riding the bomb like a buckin’ bronco at the end of Dr. Strangelove…, or the racist taskmaster heading up the railroad gang in Blazing Saddles, or the doomed Sheriff Baker, who gets one of the loveliest, most heartbreaking sendoffs in movie history in Sam Peckinpah’s Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.

Lindley joined the rodeo circuit when he was 13 and soon picked up the name that would follow him throughout the length of his professional career, in rodeo and in movies & TV. One of the rodeo vets got a look at the lank newcomer and told him, “Slim pickin’s. That’s all you’re gonna get in this rodeo. »

Michael Douglas to Star in Netflix Comedy Series From Chuck Lorre

14 August 2017 11:17 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

In what would mark his first regular TV gig in more than four decades, Oscar and Emmy winner Michael Douglas is eyeing a starring role in a Netflix comedy series from sitcom titan Chuck Lorre.

According to Deadline, the streamer is close to finalizing a 10-episode order for The Kominsky Method, a half-hour, single camera comedy penned by Lorre that centers on Sandy Kominsky (Douglas), an actor who years ago had a brief fling with success and is now a revered Hollywood acting coach. Alan Arkin would co-star as his long-suffering agent and friend, Norman.

John Bailey Elected President of the Motion Picture Academy

8 August 2017 11:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a surprise victory, cinematographer John Bailey has been elected the 36th president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the organization that annually presents the Oscars for excellence in filmmaking. The decision was made Tuesday night at a monthly meeting of the AMPAS board of governors.

The new Academy leader will succeed exiting president Cheryl Boone Isaacs, who served a maximum four-year term in the role and, along with CEO Dawn Hudson, oversaw many dramatic shifts in the movie monolith’s demographical makeup and procedural status quo.

Bailey, 74, is a dark-horse winner. His credits include “Ordinary People,” “American Gigolo,” “The Big Chill,” “Groundhog Day,” “As Good as It Gets,”  “The Anniversary Party,” “The Way Way Back” and “A Walk in the Woods.” In 2014 he received the American Society of Cinematographers Lifetime Achievement Award, but he has never received an Oscar nomination.

More Gay Stars and Directors and Screenwriters on TCM: From psychos and psychiatrists to surfers and stage mamas

22 June 2017 6:51 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

On the day a U.S. appeals court lifted an injunction that blocked a Mississippi “religious freedom” law – i.e., giving Christian extremists the right to discriminate against gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgender people, etc. – not to mention the publication of a Republican-backed health care bill targeting the poor, the sick, the elderly, and those with “pre-existing conditions” – which would include HIV-infected people, a large chunk of whom are gay and bisexual men, so the wealthy in the U.S. can get a massive tax cut, Turner Classic Movies' 2017 Gay Pride or Lgbt Month celebration continues (into tomorrow morning, Thursday & Friday, June 22–23) with the presentation of movies by or featuring an eclectic – though seemingly all male – group: Montgomery Clift, Anthony Perkins, Tab Hunter, Dirk Bogarde, John Schlesinger, Tennessee Williams, Gore Vidal, Arthur Laurents, and Jerome Robbins.

Laura Dern in the Mix for Film Academy President (Exclusive)

28 April 2017 11:56 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With current president Cheryl Boone Isaacs set to term out at the end of July, the board of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will soon be voting on new leadership. A handful of contenders have been bubbling up, but one particularly compelling name has just been tossed into the hat: two-time Oscar nominee Laura Dern.

Sources tell Variety the actress is interested in taking the reins after being elected to the board of governors last July. If she runs and wins, it would be a splashy choice, not least of all because Dern is Hollywood royalty, the daughter of Oscar-nominated actors Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd. She would also be the fourth woman to hold the office, after Isaacs, Bette Davis and Fay Kanin — not an incidental footnote given the organization’s push for diversity as of late.

Dern did not respond to a request for comment. »

Bones Round Table: Who Is Next To Die?

18 March 2017 6:21 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Blood, bikinis, and neon panthers made for a B-movie gone wrong murder mystery on Bones Season 12 Episode 10. 

Our TV Fanatics Ashley Bisette Sumerel and Christine Orlando are joined by Pam, a Bones fan, to debate Aubrey leaving for La, Wendell’s lack of passion, and if anyone will die before the series is over.

Do you think Aubrey should take the job in Los Angeles?

Pam: Yes, he can go far, and he should. He can still be friends with everyone, but he needs to grow and experience what he can do in other departments.

Ashley: Yes, absolutely. I love that he's being offered a promotion, and I think he deserves it. 

Christine: Aubrey has really grown on me. If the show were continuing, I’d want him to stick around, but since it is ending, I’m happy he’s getting a promotion and moving on; he deserves it. »

Kiss of Death

28 February 2017 2:45 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This is the ultimate in screen sadism circa 1947, and it’s all in the debut film performance of Richard Widmark as a too-nasty-for-words hood who likes to shoot people in the stomach. Actually, Victor Mature is not bad in a grim story of a stool pigeon that tries to square himself with the law, and finds himself a target for mob murder.

Hotel

5 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

As the manager of a sprawling New Orleans hotel, Rod Taylor has his hands full in this all-star soap opera from 1967. Written by Airport scribe Arthur Hailey, Hotel follows a similar boilerplate as the trials and tribulations of our beleaguered cast come to a head under claustrophobic conditions. Karl Malden and Kevin McCarthy play two of Taylor’s more unscrupulous guests while Hollywood stalwart Richard Quine (Bell, Book and Candle) handles the directing chores.

One of the Greatest Film Noir Stars of Them All? Four Crime Classics to Remember

21 January 2017 11:36 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Dana Andrews movies: Film noir actor excelled in both major and minor crime dramas. Dana Andrews movies: First-rate film noir actor excelled in both classics & minor fare One of the best-looking and most underrated actors of the studio era, Dana Andrews was a first-rate film noir/crime thriller star. Oftentimes dismissed as no more than a “dependable” or “reliable” leading man, in truth Andrews brought to life complex characters that never quite fit into the mold of Hollywood's standardized heroes – or rather, antiheroes. Unlike the cynical, tough-talking, and (albeit at times self-delusionally) self-confident characters played by the likes of Alan Ladd, Edward G. Robinson, James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, and, however lazily, Robert Mitchum, Andrews created portrayals of tortured men at odds with their social standing, their sense of ethics, and even their romantic yearnings. Not infrequently, there was only a very fine line separating his (anti)heroes from most movie villains. »
