Happy birthday to Best Actress winner Joan Fontaine (Suspicion, 1941), also known as the second Mrs. DeWinter. She turns 93 years young today. What on earth was she thinking about when she won the Oscar. This photo to your left fascinates me on account of "who knows?" It seems so much more candid than many Oscar night photos.
I keep the following "still with us!" list, not from any morbid curiousity but from a genuine happiness that some legendary screen stars are still walking the earth even though most of them aren't walking the screens these days. This year has been rough with the losses so maybe I'm going to stop keep this list. My heart was in the right place! We want the following to know that their past accomplishments are acknowledged by new generations.

I.m a pretty serious goy. When the Coen Brothers latest offering arrived at the office it was delivered by a Korean kid and was accompanied by a white envelope stuffed with one hundred dollar bills. So I knew I was going to like it. In the old country (and entirely in Yiddish), Velvel (Allen Lewis Rickman) has had some trouble on the road during a snowstorm. He arrives home late to his wife (Yelena Shmulenson) to tell of his troubles, but says that he got help from a friend of hers, Reb Groshkover (Fyvush Finkel). She says that can.t be because Reb died three years ago and that what Velvel encountered on the road was a dybbuk. »

Chicago – One of the byproducts of expanding the Best Picture nominees has been that half of the most notable films of the year in the eyes of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are now available on Blu-ray and DVD including “District 9,” “The Hurt Locker,” “Up,” “Inglourious Basterds,” and now “A Serious Man”.
Blu-Ray Rating: 4.5/5.0
The Coens third Best Picture nominee (also nominated for Best Original Screenplay and stupidly snubbed in Best Cinematography considering the beauty of Roger Deakins’ work) is also their most biographical, a period piece about the tough predicament of keeping the faith when hardships befall us for no appraent reason. Is it some higher plan? We are asked to live good, moral lives but sometimes it feels like it gets us nowhere.
A Serious Man was released on Blu-ray and DVD on February 9th, 2010.
