So it’s fortunate that we have a general logline for the film as a whole. In The Way, Way Back, Liam James (The Killing) stars as a teenager whose irresponsible mother (Toni Collette) and stepfather (Corddry‘s Seeking a Friend co-star, Steve Carell) drive him to find a job working at a water park, whereat
There are three new packs available, and I want to not only let you in on a discount code, but I have one of the packs available for you to win.
I know a lot of people may be quick to overlook these packs, and not every movie included stands out as a major value, but there are some great titles in each of them, and fans of the genres will be pleasantly surprised by what they get out of the deal. I have to admit that there is something about seeing a 50-movie pack, especially when it doesn’t cost a couple of hundred dollars, or more,
New York -- You gotta love Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin. No, really, you gotta absolutely love them to be anything but underwhelmed by this lazily conceived valentine. As generic as its title suggests, An Evening With Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin coasts along on the two performers’ relaxed humor and genuine fondness for each other. But it rarely goes anyplace personal or revelatory. Directed by Patinkin and hatched by the performer with music director Paul Ford, the show was first staged in 2002. It has been playing stops in U.S. cities and abroad in various incarnations on and off

François "Papa Doc" Duvalier was elected president of Haiti in 1957. His unrestrained brutality and embezzlement, combined with a personality cult based around Haiti's folk religion, Voodoo, made him one of the most notorious dictators of his time. Novelist and screenwriter Graham Greene based The Comedians on his experiences in Duvalier's Haiti.
Mr Brown (Richard Burton) arrives back in Haiti after failing to sell his Port-au-Prince hotel. For this production, Port-au-Prince was recreated in Dahomey, now Benin. Most Haitians are descended from slaves transported from that part of west Africa: there are similarities of culture, religion and, sadly, underdevelopment. "I've worked in many worse places," said Burton cheerfully in the making-of documentary. "Like the Sahara desert, and south Wales."
Filming in Haiti was not an option.
The series was originally called You'll Never Get Rich but in less than two months after its September 20, 1955 premiere, it was renamed The Phil Silvers Show and was subsequently syndicated as Sgt. Bilko. It won the Emmy Award for best comedy three seasons running with
Much of the film’s success must be attributed to the work of director Morton DaCosta and star Robert Preston. DaCosta directed Preston in the musical’s 1957 Tony-winning Broadway production, and insisted that his lead actor be cast in the 1962 cinematic adaptation, rather than the studio’s preferred star, Frank Sinatra. It’s impossible to imagine anyone but Preston in the role of “Prof. Harold Hill,” a charismatic con artist who seduces the simple citizens of River City, Iowa into financially supporting his
The Music Man may be the ultimate con man flick of all time. Paper Moon is good, mind you, but it never touches that zest which comes with Robert Preston’s delivery of Harold Hill’s well-practiced smooth talking. You may think the two are incomparable, after all one’s a musical, the other isn’t, and one focuses on the relationship between a man and a con artist, the other doesn’t. However, like every movie about grifters, it’s all about the con, even if The Music Man’s ultimate swindle is set to catchy tunes. The Music Man has given so much to popular culture, so taking a look
