[Yuletide Terrors] Day 7: Home For The Holidays

7 December 2014 4:34 PM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Throughout the month of December, we will be highlighting a film a day that has some tie into the holiday somehow. Some titles will be obvious, others won’t be. Some films will be good and, again, others won’t be. However, we think all titles are worth your time whether to give you chills inside your home or to make you drink more eggnog until you puke laughing.

On Christmas Eve four daughters are summoned to the country home of their estranged father (Walter Brennan). He believes his new wife is slowly poisoning him. And he has one request: kill her before she kills him! A raging storm cuts the phone line and washes out the roads, not to mention a poncho wearing pitchfork wielding psycho running around. Will anyone survive the holidays?

Home for the Holidays premiered on ABC way back in 1972. And it’s a fun little thriller. »

Julie Harris, Liza Minnelli, Natasha Richardson, Michelle Williams. And now: Emma Stone.

The 26-year-old actress is the latest star to take on the famed role of Sally Bowles in Cabaret. On November 11, Stone made her Broadway debut replacing Williams, who kicked off the revival of the award-winning musical about the seedy nightlife of 1930s Berlin.

While many have only seen the first image of Stone as the British performer Sally, Playbill has an exclusive behind the scenes look at the show. In the video, the actress sings, dances, and struts her way into the hearts of theatre fans everywhere.

The Birdman actress was originally supposed to star in revival when it first opened in March of this year, but had to pull out to scheduling conflicts. Now she finally has her chance to leave her mark as one of the many Sallys to take the stage.

25 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

We were all hoping that the London production of Lillian Hellman's The Children's Hour would mark Keira Knightley's Broadway debut (she got great reviews in 2011 starring opposite Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss), but we'll take her however we can get her. Next fall, she will make her Broadway debut in Roundabout Theatre Company's adaptation of the tragic novel Thérèse Raquin, continuing with Knightley's affinity for period dramas.

'The Belle of Amherst': Theater Review

19 October 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

"Words are my life," declares Emily Dickinson, portrayed by Joely Richardson in The Belle of Amherst. And indeed, words are what you get in this Off-Broadway revival of William Luce's 1976 one-woman play, immortalized by actress Julie Harris in a Tony Award-winning turn that she later reprised for a PBS television production. Conveying the essence of the reclusive poet's life via an interweaving of her poems, letters, diaries and pure imagination, it's an incisive portrait that provides a marvelous vehicle for talented actresses. Richardson is accustomed to having big shoes to fill thanks to her lineage:

Honorary Award: Gloria Swanson, Rita Hayworth among dozens of women bypassed by the Academy (photo: Honorary Award non-winner Gloria Swanson in 'Sunset Blvd.') (See previous post: "Honorary Oscars: Doris Day, Danielle Darrieux Snubbed.") Part three of this four-part article about the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Honorary Award bypassing women basically consists of a long, long — and for the most part quite prestigious — list of deceased women who, some way or other, left their mark on the film world. Some of the names found below are still well known; others were huge in their day, but are now all but forgotten. Yet, just because most people (and the media) suffer from long-term — and even medium-term — memory loss, that doesn't mean these women were any less deserving of an Honorary Oscar.

Eli Wallach, ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ Star, Dies at 98

24 June 2014 10:07 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tony- and Emmy-winning actor Eli Wallach, a major proponent of “the Method” style of acting best known for his starring role in Elia Kazan’s film “Baby Doll” and for his role as villain Tuco in iconic spaghetti Western “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” died on Tuesday, according to the New York Times. He was 98.

On the bigscreen Wallach had few turns as a leading man, but none was as strong as his first starring role in 1956’s “Baby Doll,” in which he played a leering cotton gin owner intent on seducing the virgin bride (Carroll Baker) of his business rival (Karl Malden). But he appeared in more than 80 films, offering colorful turns in character roles in movies such as “The Magnificent Seven,” “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” “Nuts,” “Lord Jim,” “The Misfits” and “The Two Jakes.”
