My Favorite Scene: Past and Current Producers Look Back on ‘Law & Order: Svu’

8 February 2017 9:18 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

No one loves a great scene more than the person who first dreamed it up -- the writer. We're asking iconic shows' creators and writers to tell Et all about getting to see their most cherished moment on their series make it from script to screen.

On Wednesday, Feb. 8, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit will reach a major TV milestone when it airs its 400th episode, a feat only previously achieved by eight scripted series over the past four decades. While a lot of credit for the show’s success and stamina is given to the cast led by Mariska Hargitay, who has won an Emmy for playing Det. Olivia Benson, it’s hard to ignore the writing, which has earned several Edgar Allen Poe Award nominations over the course of its run.

Cinematography: William C. Mellor

Film Editor: Leonid Azar

Art Direction: Alexandre Trauner

Written by: Billy Wilder, I.A.L. Diamond from a novel by Claude Anet

Produced and Directed by Billy Wilder

A favorite of Billy Wilder-philes, Love in the Afternoon is a strong expression of the ‘romantic-Lubitsch’ vein in Wilder’s work. It’s essentially a return to the early ’30s Lubitsch comedies with Maurice Chevalier, but played in a more bittersweet Viennese register. It’s also Wilder’s first collaboration with the comedy screenwriter I.A.L. Diamond. Together they fashion the predominantly verbal comedy machine that will carry them through three or four big hits, and a few losers that have become classics anyway. »

Looking back at Funny Bones

30 January 2017 1:37 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Robin Bell Feb 2, 2017

Blackpool, Lee Evans, Jerry Lewis and Oliver Platt converge in Funny Bones. Here's why it's a film worth seeking out.

"Why do all the best things in life belong to the past?"

It seems a strange thing to be obsessed about, it wasn't a franchise, and didn't come with much buzz, but when Peter Chelsom's Funny Bones was released in 1995 I instantly latched on to it. It didn't even receive a general release in the cinemas around my area. It was released during that period when you had to check the local newspaper adverts to discover the cinema times. Disappointingly it didn't appear, not until a few weeks later when it had just one showing, on a Thursday night. I'd been talking about the film for ages to my brother, who was now at university, and once I found that it was screening I practically begged »

I Remember Debbie

17 January 2017 12:50 AM, PST | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

A friend of mine told me this story about her memories of Debbie Reynolds, and I was so touched that I am writing it here:

Of course I saw “Singing in the Rain”, Debbie Reynolds’ first film. I don’t think anyone could ever forget that movie. And I loved “Tammy and the Bachelor” and can still sing “Tammy’s in Love” by heart. But the one that I loved the most was the one I most identified with when I was 10 and saw “Susan Slept Here”. I was struggling with my own pre-teen “jv” secret wishes. Growing up in what was a pretty anti-semitic Culver City neighborhood, I really wanted to be a “pachuca.” And with my own lack of a father-figure since my father died when I was eight, I fell in love with Dick Powell. And I fell in love with the green dress Tammy wore as »

William Peter Blatty, Author of ‘The Exorcist,’ Dies at 89

13 January 2017 8:29 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

William Peter Blatty, the novelist and Oscar-winning screenwriter most famous for landmark horror film “The Exorcist” as well as the director of two films, “The Ninth Configuration” and “The Exorcist III,” has died. He was 89.

“Exorcist” director William Friedkin announced the news on Twitter Friday morning: “William Peter Blatty, dear friend and brother who created The Exorcist passed away yesterday,” Friedkin wrote.

Blatty’s 1970 novel “The Exorcist” remained on the New York Times bestseller list for 57 weeks, and he subsequently adapted it for the 1973 bigscreen version directed by William Friedkin. That film was not only an enormous box office success, playing in theaters for months, but was Oscar nominated for best picture (becoming the first horror film ever so nominated) and won for Blatty’s adapted screenplay.

The film won several polls for scariest horror movie ever, and the Library of Congress designated “The Exorcist” for preservation as part of »
