"..121 year-old 'Jack Crabb' (Dustin Hoffman), recounts his colorful life story to a curious historian (William Hickey).

"Among other things, Crabb had been a captive of the Cheyenne, a gunslinger, an associate of 'Wild Bill Hickok' (Jeff Corey), and a scout for 'General George Armstrong Custer' (Richard Mulligan).

"Having been adopted by the Cheyenne and reared in their culture, Crabb has perspective on both Caucasian and Native American life in the 19th century..."

Dustin Hoffman (r.) goes native in Little Big Man.

The well-respected 1970 revisionist Western film Little Big Man, directed by Arthur Penn (Bonnie and Clyde) and starring Dustin Hoffman (Straw Dogs) and Faye Dunaway (Network), makes its Blu-ray debut under the auspices of Native American Heritage Month.

Stunningly restored so that Harry Stradling Jr.’s amazing cinematography is shown to best effect, the movie follows the life story of Jack Crabb (Hoffman), a white man raised by the Native American Cheyenne tribes. Crabb recounts his life, often comically, through flashbacks of the many historic events he witnessed — including the battle at Little Big Horn led by the egomaniacal General George Custer (Richard Mulligan, S.O.B.) — as the West was won as the bloody result of American imperialism and genocide of Native Americans.

So, You Wanna See Mr. Big’s Balls…

6 April 2011 8:30 AM, PDT | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

Ever pause an episode of Sex and the City halfway through, throw up all the ice cream you just ate, and think to yourself: “Man, you know what would make this episode exponentially better? A big steamin’ pile of Mr. Big’s Balls.” Followed by looking at your reflection in the bedside mirror, brushing your hair 900 times, and softly weeping yourself to sleep? We (I) know we (I) have! Well, start scratching those lotto tickets, world, because today is all about luck and balls. Chris Noth, nee Mr. Big, made an appearance at the 9th annual Dressed to Kilt charity fashion show. He joined the catwalk with a gaggle of other male celebrities in kilts, including Kiefer Sutherland and Jim Gaffigan. And then this happened: Let’s see: That’s Jason Patrick (far left), Jim Gaffigan (exhibiting restraint), Brian Cox (make it stop), Chris Noth (possibly half-horse), and Kiefer Sutherland »

'Empty Nest' star Kristy McNichol resurfaces in Hallmark Channel marathon

26 February 2011 4:08 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

It's easy to forget about "Empty Nest." The "Golden Girls" spin-off hasn't exactly thrived in syndication like so many of its contemporaries.

But The Hallmark Channel resuscitates the '80s/'90s comedy -- about a doctor whose two grown daughters move home -- with a Feb. 26 marathon.

Starring Richard Mulligan (R.I.P.), Dinah Manoff and Kristy McNichol, the show is perhaps best known for McNichol's sudden departure during the 1992.

So what happened to her? At the time, McNichol was becoming notorious for bad attendance and erratic behavior on the set of the show and several movies and she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and retired from acting altogether.

She returned for the series' finale in 1995, and it marked her last ever screen appearance -- though she did some voice work in the late '90s.

2001 was the last time she issued a public statement, offering some insight on »
