Slideshow: Happy 50th Anniversary to the Chicago International Film Festival & Founder Michael Kutza

Previous | Image 1 of 4 | NextMichael Kutza, Founder and Artistic Director, Chicago International Film Festival.

Chicago – 50 years ago today – Thursday, November 4th, 1965 – a 22-year old filmmaker named Michael Kutza realized his dream of bringing the cinema world to Chicago, with the opening night of the first Chicago International Film Festival. 50 years later, founder Kutza just finished overseeing the 51st festival.

The dream began in 1964 with the backing of former silent-era movie comedienne Colleen Moore Hargrave, who opened the doors of contact for Kutza in the film and Chicago community. Michael Kutza then founded Cinema/Chicago, the organization that presents the Chicago International Film Festival each year, and remains so to this day. The first opening night took place at the old Carnegie Theatre in Chicago, at the corner of Rush and Oak Streets.

From Robinson's Toyboy to Intrepid Drug Smuggler: Fairbanks Jr on TCM

15 August 2015 11:31 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Douglas Fairbanks Jr. ca. 1935. Douglas Fairbanks Jr. was never as popular as his father, silent film superstar Douglas Fairbanks, who starred in one action-adventure blockbuster after another in the 1920s (The Mark of Zorro, Robin Hood, The Thief of Bagdad) and whose stardom dates back to the mid-1910s, when Fairbanks toplined a series of light, modern-day comedies in which he was cast as the embodiment of the enterprising, 20th century “all-American.” What this particular go-getter got was screen queen Mary Pickford as his wife and United Artists as his studio, which he co-founded with Pickford, D.W. Griffith, and Charles Chaplin. Now, although Jr. never had the following of Sr., he did enjoy a solid two-decade-plus movie career. In fact, he was one of the few children of major film stars – e.g., Jane Fonda, Liza Minnelli, Angelina Jolie, Michael Douglas, Jamie Lee Curtis – who had successful film careers of their own. »

Rare Black History Sample, Chinese Spider-Women, Capra Silent by Accident: Sfsff 2015 Highlights

16 June 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

African-American film 'Bert Williams: Lime Kiln Club Field Day.' With Williams and Odessa Warren Grey.* Rare, early 20th-century African-American film among San Francisco Silent Film Festival highlights Directed by Edwin Middleton and T. Hayes Hunter, the Biograph Company's Lime Kiln Club Field Day (1913) was the film I most looked forward to at the 2015 edition of the San Francisco Silent Film Festival. One hundred years old, unfinished, and destined to be scrapped and tossed into the dust bin, it rose from the ashes. Starring entertainer Bert Williams – whose film appearances have virtually disappeared, but whose legacy lives on – Lime Kiln Club Field Day has become a rare example of African-American life in the first years of the 20th century. In the introduction to the film, the audience was treated to a treasure trove of Black memorabilia: sheet music, stills, promotional material, and newspaper clippings that survive. Details of the »

The Hippodrome Festival of Silent Film runs until March 22 Photo: Amber Wilkinson The fifth Hippodrome Festival of Silent Film, which kicked off on Wednesday, enjoyed a gala evening to remember in Bo'ness, West Lothian, last night.

With a drinks reception and many cinemagoers taking up the invitation to wear "flapper glamour" for the evening, the atmosphere was perfect for the screening of comedy romp Synthetic Sin - a flapper film starring the sparkling Colleen Moore as an innocent determined to "suffer and sin right now!" in order to become a better actress. Audiences for the festival seem to grow year on year, with people who had come from as far afield as London and the Us mixing with an enthusiastic crowd of locals. Adding to the atmosphere was live music from Gladstone Bag.

Colleen Moore in Synthetic Sin. The evening was introduced by the chair of the Falkirk Trust Ian Scott »

On TCM: Conservative Actress Young in Audacious Movies

6 January 2015 12:59 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Loretta Young films as TCM celebrates her 102nd birthday (photo: Loretta Young ca. 1935) Loretta Young would have turned 102 years old today. Turner Classic Movies is celebrating the birthday of the Salt Lake City-born, Academy Award-winning actress today, January 6, 2015, with no less than ten Loretta Young films, most of them released by Warner Bros. in the early '30s. Young, who began her film career in a bit part in the 1927 Colleen Moore star vehicle Her Wild Oat, remained a Warners contract player from the late '20s up until 1933. (See also: "Loretta Young Movies.") Now, ten Loretta Young films on one day may sound like a lot, but one should remember that most Warner Bros. -- in fact, most Hollywood -- releases of the late '20s and early '30s were either B Movies or programmers. The latter were relatively short (usually 60 to 75 minutes) feature films starring A (or B+) performers, »
