Actress Who Leapt To Death From Hollywood Sign Finally Getting Her Movie

19 September 2014 12:14 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive: Arthur Sarkissian and writer-director Tony Kaye are teaming to bring the story of Peg Entwistle to light as a movie. She is the blond-haired, blue-eyed actress who committed suicide by jumping off the ‘H’ of the Hollywood sign in 1932 after she was cut out of the David O. Selznick film Thirteen Women. She was only 24.

Sarkissian (Rush Hour) will produce the picture, and Kaye will write and plans to direct.

The Wales-born Entwistle started her career on Broadway in several plays from 1925-32 including The Wild Duck and The Uninvited Guest and in J.M. Barrie’s Alice Sit By The Fire before marrying Robert Keith. They divorced after she discovered that Keith had been married before and had a 6-year-old son she was not told about. Oddly enough, that son was Brian Keith, who later became an actor best known for the popular TV series Family Affair.

DVD Review: "Ransom!" (1956) Starring Glenn Ford And Donna Reed

16 August 2014 3:43 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

The Warner Archive has released the classic 1956 film noir Ransom! as a burn-to-order title. The film is a textbook example of minimalist production values being overshadowed by a strong, intelligent script (co-written by future 007 scribe Richard Maibaum) and excellent direction, courtesy of Alex Segal.  Glenn Ford plays Dave Stannard, a highly successful owner of a major vacuum cleaner company. He lives an idyllic home life with his devoted wife Edith (Donna Reed) and their 8 year-old son Andy (Bobby Clark). Suddenly their peaceful, quiet life is sent into a tragic spin when Andy is kidnapped by persons unknown. Stannard alerts the local police chief and soon his house is swarming with cops while outside a circus-like atmosphere develops as ghoulish neighbors gather to sniff out any updates in the case. For long agonizing hours Stannard doesn't receive any word until the inevitable phone call comes in demanding that he get a $500,000 ransom together. »

Trailers from Hell Inspects 'The Lineup'

23 May 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Today on Trailers from Hell, Josh Olson takes a look at Don Siegel's savage 1958 thriller "The Lineup," the big screen adaptation of the 1950s TV series starring Warner Anderson. Warner Anderson, star of the long-running early fifties TV show "The Lineup," repeated his role in 1958's big screen version but the real stars of director Don Siegel's brutal thriller were Eli Wallach and Robert Keith as a pair of sociopathic crooks and, of course, Siegel himself who masterminded several lethal set pieces including the hair-raising climax (involving a chase on an unfinished freeway). Seasoned TV writer Stirling Silliphant ("Route 66," "Naked City") was responsible for the screenplay and cinematographer Hal Mohr ("The Wild One," "Destry Rides Again") lensed the appropriately gritty black and white San Francisco landscapes. »

New on Video: ‘Men in War’

1 May 2014 9:05 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Men in War

Written by Philip Yordan

Directed by Anthony Mann

USA, 1957

Director Anthony Mann was a specialist at genre filmmaking. From early crime dramas like T-Men and Raw Deal, to historical epics like El Cid and The Fall of the Roman Empire, he seemed to have a knack for working within — and working with — the conventions of a given generic formula. His Westerns, especially, are among the best that that particular type of movie has to offer. And when he set his sights on the war film, his natural aptitude for genre would be as prominent as it was anywhere. Men in War, from 1957, his second war film of the decade (released two years after Strategic Air Command), contains much of what makes Mann a distinct filmmaker, and reveals much of what makes the war film its own unique form of motion picture.

Woman on the Run

Written by Alan Campbell and Norman Foster

Directed by Norman Foster

U.S.A., 1950

It is a quaint evening as Frank Johnson (Ross Elliot) walks his dog in a San Francisco park. None too far away arrives a car with two occupants, one whose face seen and another the driver’s whose face is concealed from the viewer. The driver suddenly shoots and murders his companion and, upon noticing Frank’s presence, takes fire at the passerby before leaving the premise. Having taken refuge from the bullets, Frank security is short lived, as the police explain later on that the departed was none other but a key witness in a ongoing trial against a major local gangster. Frank is now an eyewitness to a murder and the new target of those who wish to see the infamous mobster walk away free. Perturbed by his predicament, the man flees the police, »
