The Breaking Point

You can tell it’s film noir — even the cabin cruiser has Venetian blinds. Ernest Hemingway’s favorite film adaptation of his work is this uncompromised story of a good man taking a criminal course on the high seas. John Garfield is again ‘one man alone’ against the system, and the moral quicksand all but swallows up Patricia Neal, Phyllis Thaxter and Wallace Ford.

Neal Doesn't Stand Still as Earth Stops, Fascism Rises: Oscar Winner Who Suffered Massive Stroke Is TCM's Star

Patricia Neal ca. 1950. Patricia Neal movies: 'The Day the Earth Stood Still,' 'A Face in the Crowd' Back in 1949, few would have predicted that Gary Cooper's leading lady in King Vidor's The Fountainhead would go on to win a Best Actress Academy Award 15 years later. Patricia Neal was one of those performers – e.g., Jean Arthur, Anne Bancroft – whose film career didn't start out all that well, but who, by way of Broadway, managed to both revive and magnify their Hollywood stardom. As part of its “Summer Under the Stars” series, Turner Classic Movies is dedicating Sunday, Aug. 16, '15, to Patricia Neal. This evening, TCM is showing three of her best-known films, in addition to one TCM premiere and an unusual latter-day entry. 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' Robert Wise was hardly a genre director.

Exploitation Alley: The Mini-skirt Mob!!

I was drawn to the film I chose for Exploitation Alley for two reasons: the poster looks cool, and the words “mini” and “skirt” are in the title. So my love for vicious, beautiful female motorcycle gangs sparked my curiosity and I caved in. I am glad I did. I expected a cheesy, over-acted, and hilarious film involving a group of pissed off ladies. I was wrong. I am glad I gave this one a chance, and you should too. So let us go back to a great era for psychedelic dancing, and tough women who know how to party. And while we are at it, we can applaud director Maury Dexter for making a great film…it is time for The Mini-skirt Mob!

For some reason, I am intrigued by movies that have their own theme songs. I am especially happy about the ones that have a theme song

Interviews: Classic TV Stars Hugh O’Brian, Sherry Jackson

Chicago – In the days when there were only three networks and less remote controls, TV stars were fewer and fame was rarer. Both Hugh O’Brian on “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp” (1955) and Sherry Jackson on “Make Room for Daddy“ (1953) achieved some notoriety in those early days of television.

O’Brian and Jackson appeared at the Hollywood Celebrities & Memorabilia Show (now called “The Hollywood Show”) in 2011, and HollywoodChicago.com was there to interview them, along with photographer Joe Arce, who captured both stars in Exclusive Portraits.

Hugh O’Brian, “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp

Hugh O’Brian, next to James Arness of “Gunsmoke,” was one of the biggest western TV stars in an era when the networks were flooded with horse operas. “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp” debuted in 1955 on ABC-tv, and ran for seven seasons as a top rated show. O’Brian also made movies,

Brenda Starr is yesterday's news

The nosey Chicago redhead who's been getting in everyone's hair since 1940 and spawned four screen adaptations is to file her last story on January 2nd 2011. Tribune Media Services have announced that the syndicated strip about an enterprising female journalist has had its day, and is closing her 70-year stint in over 250 newspapers.

Starr is the third female comic-strip character to get axed in recent times, along with 'Annie' and 'Cathy'. The cancellation of the strip is apparently due to the demise of comics as a marketable presence in newspapers (and in the decline of newspapers in itself...?) Tribune Media Services marketing director

Jan Guszynski says: "In its current form, and given the number of newspapers it is in, we chose not to go forward."

One argument for the increasing irrelevance of a 'goil reporter' comic strip is the public perception that women now form a majority in the ranks of
