These Three

9 August 2016 9:49 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Radical changes were required to adapt Lillian Hellman's Broadway play for post-Code Hollywood, to eradicate a theme that in 1934 was entirely taboo. But were audiences really unaware of the subject matter switch? William Wyler excels with this bowdlerized, yet curiously near-perfect, story about the power of scandal. These Three DVD-r The Warner Archive Collection 1936 / B&W / 1:37 flat Academy / 93 min. / Street Date February 9, 2016 / available through the WBshop / 21.99 Starring Miriam Hopkins, Merle Oberon, Joel McCrea, Catharine Doucet, Alma Kruger, Bonita Granville, Marcia Mae Jones , Carmencita Johnson, Mary Ann Durkin, Margaret Hamilton, Walter Brennan. Cinematography Gregg Toland Film Editor Daniel Mandell Original Music Alfred Newman Written by Lillian Hellman Produced by Samuel Goldwyn Directed by William Wyler

Reviewed by Glenn Erickson

William Wyler directed half a decade's worth of silent westerns before his big break came. From that point on he made high profile dramas, almost all of which are excellent movies. »

18 April 2016 4:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Doris Roberts, a character actress who labored honorably both on stage and screen for years before finding the perfect vehicle for her talents, the hit sitcom “Everybody Loves Raymond,” died on Sunday. She was 90.

Her “Everybody Loves Raymond” co-star Patricia Heaton confirmed the news on Twitter.

A cause of death has not yet been released. According to TMZ, which first reported the news, Roberts died in Los Angeles. ABC and CBS also confirmed the news.

On “Everybody Loves Raymond,” Roberts’ almost omnipresent Marie Barone (she appeared on every episode of the show, which ran from 1996-2005) made life difficult for her son, Ray Romano’s Ray, and especially for his wife Debra, »

Berlin: Cynthia Nixon Waxes Poetic About Emily Dickinson, ‘A Quiet Passion’

14 February 2016 9:40 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The British team behind “A Quiet Passion,” the story of one of America’s most beloved literary icons, Emily Dickinson, exhibited nothing but passion for their story of a wonderfully talented yet introverted poetic genius who never enjoyed recognition in her lifetime.

Discussing the film at a press conference ahead of its premiere in the Berlin Film Festival’s Berlinale Special showcase on Sunday, director Terence Davies, a veritable expert on Dickinson, said he had envisioned actress Cynthia Nixon in the role of Dickinson since the start. Herself a lifelong fan of the poet, Nixon said she grew up watching Julie Harris in William Luce’s “The Belle of Amherst” and always heard Harris’ voice as Dickinson. “Julie Harris’ voice was in my head. I felt so much kinship to her. I had grown up watching her. But I was not intimidated.” Nixon added that the one-woman play in which »
