Zelda Fitzgerald Biopic In The Works From Director Ron Howard Starring Jennifer Lawrence

21 October 2016 2:28 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

If you’re a book whore like me, one of the most prominent names in literature is Zelda Fitzgerald. No, she’s not a character in a book, nor was she an author of a generally accepted “great American novel” (her work was largely overshadowed by that of her husband), but she was the wife of novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald, the man behind such classic books as The Great Gatsby and This Side of Paradise.

She was often cited as Fitzgerald’s muse, though history has proven that their love affair wasn’t as picturesque one would think. Writer Ernest Hemingway thought Zelda interfered too much with F. Scott’s work, and Zelda in turn disliked Hemingway right back, but this wasn’t the only wrench in their relationship. F. Scott was a textbook alcoholic, and Zelda was diagnosed with schizophrenia, and as such, spent a decent amount of time in mental facilities. »

13 October 2016 4:43 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bob Dylan has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, becoming the first American to win the top honor since Toni Morrison in 1993 and the first musician to be recognized.

The 75-year old singer-songwriter was honored for his intricate, evocative lyrics, and for his alternately political and phantasmagoric anthems such as “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “Forever Young,” “Like a Rolling Stone,” “Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands,” “Rainy Day Women#12 & 35,” and  “The Times They Are a-Changin’.” He joins the ranks of William FaulknerGabriel García Márquez, Saul BellowWilliam Butler Yeats, and Ernest Hemingway —  all previous laureates.

In selecting Dylan, the Nobel committee praised the singer and songwriter “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.” His prize comes with 8 million Swedish kronor, which roughly equals $900,000. He will be honored in Stockholm, Sweden, in December.

Silent Star King Baggot from St. Louis Starred in Absinthe – A Look Back at 1914

12 September 2016 7:03 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The King Baggot Tribute will take place Wednesday September 28th at 7pm at Lee Auditorium inside the Missouri History Museum (Lindell and DeBaliviere in Forest Park, St. Louis, Missouri). The 1913 silent film Ivanhoe will be accompanied by The Rats and People Motion Picture Orchestra and there will be a 40-minute illustrated lecture on the life and career of King Baggot by We Are Movie Geeks’ Tom Stockman.

While cleaning out an old barn in New Hampshire recently, a man named Peter Massie discovered an old silent film projector and seven reels of nitrate films hidden in the shadows of a corner of the structure. Among these old reels was a 30-minute 1913 film titled When Lincoln Paid starring Francis Ford (older brother of director John Ford). It was one of six silent films, all presumed lost, in which Ford played Abraham Lincoln. It is stories like this that give hope to silent film fans. »

Lee Marvin Died 29 Years Ago Today – Here Are His Ten Best Films

29 August 2016 7:32 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

Lee Marvin rose through the ranks of movie stardom as a character actor, delivering mostly villainous supporting turns in many films before finally graduating to leading roles. Regardless of which side of the law he was on however, he projected a tough-as-nails intensity and a two-fisted integrity which elevated even the slightest material. Born February 19, 1924, in New York City, Marvin quit high school to enter the Marine Corps and while serving in the South Pacific was badly wounded in battle when a machine gun nest shot off part of his buttocks and severed his sciatic nerve. He spent a year in recovery before returning to the U.S. where he began working as a plumber. The acting bug bit after filling in for an ailing summer-stock actor and he studied the art at the New York-based American Theater Wing. Upon making his debut in summer stock, »

Interview with Mike Birbiglia, writer/director/star of Don’t Think Twice

9 August 2016 11:22 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

For years, an improve group called The Commune have been the stars of their small New York improv theater. The members of the group, Mile (Mike Birbiglia), Samantha (Gillian Jacobs), Jack (Keegan-Michael Key), Allison (Kate Micucci), Bill (Chris Gethard), and Lindsay (Tami Sagher) entertain audiences night after night by performing as a finely-tuned troop. But, by day, they have to support themselves by working soul-crushing menial jobs.

Then, after they learn that their beloved theater is closing down and a hit comedy television show, ala Saturday Night Live, is looking for talent, the group dynamic begins to fracture and it may be time for the group to stop dreaming and get on with their lives.

Such is the premise of writer/director/star Mike Birbiglia’s new film Don’t Think Twice. While Birbiglia’s first film, Sleepwalk with Me (2012), was based on his work as a stand-up comedian, his »

Best Shot 1977 Party, Finale

Julia Cinematography by: Douglas Slocombe (2nd of 3 nominations)

Close Encounters of the Third Kind Cinematography by: Vilmos Zsigmond (1st of 4 nominations. His only win)

In case you missed our little Cinematography 1977 party we previously looked at the Oscar nominees Looking for Mr Goodbar, The Turning Point, and the little seen Ernest Hemingway inspired drama Islands in the Stream. Now that we're entirely out of time (Supporting Actress Smackdown Of 1977 Is Tomorrow!) here's a quick look at our final two nominated pictures. This time we'll do it in the abbreviated spirit we always intended for the series but could never manage due to longwindedness: a single image and why we claim it as "best".

Hmwybs: "Islands in the Stream"

25 July 2016 6:52 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Best Shot 1977 Party. Chapter 1

Islands in the Stream (1977)

Directed by: Franklin J Schaffner

Cinematography by: Fred J Koenekamp

No, dear readers, quit humming.

Though this post is retro it is not about Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers' classic Grammy-winning 80s duet. Islands in the Stream is also the name of a 1977 movie very loosely adapted from a collection of possibly unfinished Ernest Hemingway stories which were released after his death under this title. I regret to inform that I had not even heard of it, the film or the book. The three sections of Hemingway's posthumous book include his previously published "The Old Man and the Sea," something I had heard of. (I'm not an animal.) 

The poster to your left begins with the tagline:

How long has it been since you've seen a really good movie?

Which was maybe not the best marketing tactic in March of 1977 considering what »
