(Samuel Fuller, 1952, Eureka!, PG)

Maverick writer-director Sam Fuller (1911-97) had three careers and was dedicated to each of them. First as a newspaperman, he progressed from teenage copy boy to ace crime reporter. Then as an infantry sergeant in north Africa and Europe. Third, he became a writer-director of mostly low-budget pictures, many of them now cult classics. In Jean-Luc Godard's Pierrot le fou (1965), Jean Paul Belmondo asks Fuller to explain what film is. Chewing on his cigar, Fuller says: "Film is like a battleground – love, hate, action, violence, death. In one word, emotion."

His first two films were westerns, the next two war movies and the fifth was this paean to American journalism and press freedom, set in the 1880s in Park Row, New York's equivalent of Fleet Street. The central character is a crusading journalist (played by Fuller regular Gene Evans) who's setting up his own paper, »

Jane Fonda As Nancy Reagan?

26 March 2012 4:17 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Somewhat ironically, Jane Fonda, well known for her liberal politics, may end up playing Nancy Reagan, known for her marriage to a right-wing president, in Lee Daniels' White House-set film project The Butler. According to Variety's Jeff Sneider, the Oscar-nominated Precious director has asked Fonda to join his all-star ensemble. Oscar winner Forest Whitaker will likely play butler Eugene Allen, who served an array of U.S. presidents, from Harry Truman in 1952 to Ronald Reagan in 1986. Co-written by Daniels and Danny Strong, The Butler is based on Wil Haygood's report for the Washington Post. Among The Butler's other stellar possibilities are The Color Purple / Beloved's Oprah Winfrey as the butler's wife (Winfrey was one of Precious' credited executive producers), Rise of the Planet of the Apes / The Help's David Oyelowo as Allen's son, Schindler's List / Kinsey's Liam Neeson as Lyndon B. Johnson, and 2012 / The Grifters »
