Cult Horror, Film Noir, and Sci-Fi Movies Tonight on TCM: Ulmer Remembered

Edgar G. Ulmer movies on TCM: 'The Black Cat' & 'Detour' Turner Classic Movies' June 2017 Star of the Month is Audrey Hepburn, but Edgar G. Ulmer is its film personality of the evening on June 6. TCM will be presenting seven Ulmer movies from the mid-1930s to the mid-1960s, including his two best-known efforts: The Black Cat (1934) and Detour (1945). The Black Cat was released shortly before the officialization of the Christian-inspired Production Code, which would castrate American filmmaking – with a few clever exceptions – for the next quarter of a century. Hence, audiences in spring 1934 were able to witness satanism in action, in addition to other bizarre happenings in an art deco mansion located in an isolated area of Hungary. Sporting a David Bowie hairdo, Boris Karloff is at his sinister best in The Black Cat (“Do you hear that, Vitus? The phone is dead. Even the phone is dead”), ailurophobic (a.

New York's "Essential Pre-Code" Series: Week 2

  • MUBI
Each year New York residents can look forward to two essential series programmed at the Film Forum, noirs and pre-Coders (that is, films made before the strict enforcing of the Motion Picture Production Code). These near-annual retrospective traditions are refreshed and re-varied and re-repeated for neophytes and cinephiles alike, giving all the chance to see and see again great film on film. Many titles in this year's Essential Pre-Code series, running an epic July 15 - August 11, are old favorites and some ache to be new discoveries; all in all there are far too many racy, slipshod, patter-filled celluloid splendors to be covered by one critic alone. Faced with such a bounty, I've enlisted the kind help of some friends and colleagues, asking them to sent in short pieces on their favorites in an incomplete but also in-progress survey and guide to one of the summer's most sought-after series. In this entry: what's playing Friday,

Actress Tia Carrere gets seven-year itch, files for divorce

  • Pop2it
Tia Carrere has filed for divorce from Simon Wakelin, her husband of seven years, reports People. Now that's a crucial taunt.

She is citing "irreconcilable differences" and is seeking sole custody of their 4-year-old daughter Bianca. The 43-year-old Hawaiian actress married the British photojournalist in 2003, just a few years after her divorce from her first husband, producer Elia Samana. Her first marrige ended after eight years.

Carrere is perhaps best known for her role as Wayne Campbell's girlfriend Cassandra in the "Wayne's World" movies and as archaelogy professor Sydney Fox in "Relic Hunter." She is also a Grammy-winning recording artist specializing in Hawaiian music.
