White Christmas Screens Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

15 December 2014 6:37 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“I wanna wash my hands, my face, my hair with snow!”

The spirit of Christmas is alive and well at The Hi-pointe Theater here in St. Louis. It”S A Wonderful Life played last weekend to a nearly-sold out crowd – and that’s a big theater!

This Saturday, December 20th at 10:30am, head over to the Hi-Pointe for a White Christmas

White Christmas was made in 1954 (exactly 20 years before Black Christmas!) and was directed by Michael Curtiz. Bing Crosby teamed up with madcap funny man Danny Kaye and partnering with those two show biz pros as sisters were Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen. One of the most popular films of 1954, White Christmas opens and closes with the title song, while in between it’s filled with one great musical number after another. Crosby and Kaye play entertainers who went through W.W.II together and decide to host a fundraising »

TV Review: American Masters’ ‘Bing Crosby Rediscovered’

1 December 2014 7:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Among music, radio, movies and (eventually, and grudgingly) TV, Bing Crosby crammed two or three careers into a single lifetime, which makes him prime fodder for “American Masters” treatment — representing, as he’s noted here, the “first multimedia star” of the 20th century. Still, the crooner’s personal life poses a hurdle that “Bing Crosby Rediscovered,” a generally first-rate documentary from writer-producer-director Robert Trachtenberg, struggles to clear. Ultimately, the mix feels about right, spending most of its time on why Crosby is worth remembering without ignoring his troubled children and allegations that he was an abusive father.

Drawing from access to Crosby’s archives granted by his estate, Trachtenberg weaves in some remarkable audio — from the singer arguing with Decca Records founder Jack Capp, to dictated messages about what to do regarding his children. It was a 1983 book by Crosby’s son Gary, accusing his father of abusive behavior, which clouded his father’s legacy, »

26 August 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Seth MacFarlane may be famous for creating irreverent comedies like Family Guy and Ted, but he takes crooning very seriously. Holiday for Swing, his Christmas-themed follow-up to 2011's Grammy-nominated Music Is Better Than Words (due this fall via Republic Records), finds him tapping a 65-piece orchestra and veteran arranger-producer Joel McNeely to perform a handful of well-known ("Let It Snow," "Baby It's Cold Outside") and semi-obscure yuletide chestnuts (Frank Sinatra's "Christmas Dreaming," Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney's "Snow"). MacFarlane called Billboard from the Boston set of Ted 2 to reflect on

1 July 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sure, it would be easy to rattle off all sorts of movie titles that feature the name of colors. Go ahead and knock yourself out: The Pink Panther, Red Dawn, Yellow Submarine, Purple Rain, Blue Velvet, Goldfinger, etc. The listing seems rather endless. However, can one come up with color-contained movie titles that also carry some messaging of substance and contemplation?  Maybe films such as Fried Green Tomatoes or Steel Magnolias are color-coated entries that carries some relevance in its messaging about feminine empowerment for instance. In Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color and Substance let us look are the leading selections that have both color (in title) and substance (in thematic forethought) attached to its skin. Hey, maybe one can make a case for Pink Flamingos but The Blue Lagoon might be stretching things a bit…don’t you think? The Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color »

21 June 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Long before his hair went gray or he owned a pot-bellied pig or was named People's Sexiest Man Alive, George Clooney was just another teenager growing up in Lexington, Kentucky. Or was he? As these newly discovered vintage photos of a 17-year-old Clooney show, even back then he stood out in a crowd. The ageless Hollywood hunk, 53, who's engaged to British attorney Amal Alamuddin, shows off his enviable physique (and movie-star hair) as he holds a trophy after a tennis competition in Augusta, Kentucky, in 1978. Clooney, whose grandparents owned a tobacco farm in Kentucky, would make money in the summers cutting and chopping tobacco, »

Okay so he's not perfect! George Clooney usually has a Midas touch, but during a recent interview he admitted that there's one thing he isn't good at: singing! On Popcorn With Peter Travers, the Hollywood star explained how he discovered that he couldn't carry a tune despite the fact that Rosemary Clooney was his aunt. "Here's the thing, when I did O Brother, Where Art Thou?

George Clooney on the Epic Battle to Make ‘Monuments Men’

4 February 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The walls of his rustic chic home, tucked away on a quiet wooded street in Studio City, are graced with framed black-and-white photographs of gorgeous leading men from a bygone era: Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Gregory Peck and Paul Newman, among them. In his living room, next to all the regal portraits, there is a snapshot of him and then-Sen. Barack Obama side by side at a 2006 Washington, D.C., press conference concerning the genocide in Darfur. The walls of George Clooney’s abode — once owned by Gable himself — speak volumes about the man who is at once a charismatic star craving legendary fame and someone who thinks beyond the borders of insular Hollywood.

Meet Citizen Clooney.

The 52-year-old actor-director-producer is among a small group of celebrities, including power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, as well as Oprah, and Bono, who can shine a global camera on significant »
