The Best Supporting Actresses of 1977

The Oscar went to the legendary but controversial Vanessa Redgrave for Julia and while she might be impossible to beat, the movies are all juicy in this category. Tuesday Weld co-stars in the provocative Looking for Mr Goodbar, Melinda Dillon was part of the fine cast of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Quinn Cumming charmed voters in The Goodbye Girl, and Leslie Browne, a dancer, debuted in Oscar's all time biggest loser The Turning Point (nominated for 11 Oscars but it lost every category! »

Bruce Dern, at 80, Reflects on His Career, Working With Clint Eastwood and Alfred Hitchcock

4 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At high school and college track meets, Bruce Dern was known as the guy who came from behind to win the race. Most actors who started out in the 1950s and ’60s faded away long ago, but Dern continues to be a runner — and continues to work as an actor, including his Oscar-nominated performance in “Nebraska” and in last year’s “Hateful Eight.”

Dern, who turns 80 on Saturday, got his professional start by working with Lee Strasberg and Elia Kazan, and his career is dotted with big names that he worked with: John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Robert Redford, Paul Newman, Bette Davis, Barbara Stanwyck, Roger Corman, Jane Fonda and Jack Nicholson, to name a few. He also had encounters with such diverse characters as notorious west coast mobster Mickey Cohen and noted pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy.

Dern recently told Variety, “I’ve worked with six geniuses as directors: Kazan, Alfred Hitchcock, »

Happy 86th Birthday Clint Eastwood! Here Are His Ten Best Films

31 May 2016 5:40 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

Happy Birthday to one of We Are Movie Geeks favorite stars. Clint Eastwood was born on this day in 1930, making him 86 years old. The actor and two-time Oscar winning director hasn’t let his age slow him down a bit. Sully, his new movie as a director, opens in September.

We posted a list in 2011 of his ten best directorial efforts Here

Clint Eastwood has appeared in 68 films in his six (!) decades as an actor, and here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are his ten best:

Honorable Mention: Honkytonk Man

By the 1980s, Clint Eastwood was one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars.  With his own production company, directorial skills, and economic clout, Eastwood was able to make smaller, more personal films.  A perfect example is the underrated Honkytonk Man, which also happens to be one of Eastwood’s finest performances. »

Visual Index: Best Shots from "Witness"

12 April 2016 9:05 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Hit Me With Your Best Shot revisited Witness (1985) this week to celebrate the continuing excellence of the Australian cinematographer John Seale. It was such an unexpected treat to see him doing ambitious ravishing and inspired work as a septugenarian (Mad Max Fury Road) that rivals anything he did in his 30s (Careful He Might Hear You), 40s (Rain Man) or 50s (The English Patient, The Talented Mr Ripley) and though he didn't win a second Oscar he did win our renewed ecstatic fandom. Seale's earliest Oscar nomination came for his work lensing the gorgeous moving cop drama Witness (1985).  Here are the results of our "Best Shot" challenge from the participants. The more eyeballs the merrier so join us one of these weeks alright?

Sofia Coppola To Direct Remake Of Don Siegel's "The Beguiled"

31 March 2016 3:17 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Sofia Coppola is said to be preparing a remake of director Don Siegel's "The Beguiled", a Gothic drama set during the American Civil War and set in a dilapidated school for young women in the war-torn South. Clint Eastwood starred in the original film which was released in 1971. It marked a rare boxoffice bomb for Siegel and Eastwood, who would team again for the smash hit "Dirty Harry" later that year. Eastwood played a wounded Northern soldier who is given shelter and care by the students in the school and their headmistress, played by Geraldine Page. Over a period of weeks, the Eastwood character realizes that the women around him are all sexually frustrated and that he can manipulate them into doing his bidding. Before long he is carrying on multiple affairs but jealousy inevitably rears its head and leads to some ghastly developments. The film »

Sofia Coppola Rumoured For A New Take On The Beguiled

30 March 2016 4:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it comes to potential Hollywood film projects, there are unsubstantiated rumours, and then there are rumours that increasingly look to be likelihoods. The Beguiled is becoming one such likelihood, as Indiewire report that the rumours surrounding the potential project are being supported by comments from people such as Kirsten Dunst. It seems that Academy Award winner Sofia Coppola could well be lining up a fresh version of The Beguiled, with Nicole Kidman, Dunst and Elle Fanning set to star.

First and foremost, The Beguiled is a 1966 novel by Thomas Cullinan, which was previously adapted for cinema in 1971, starring Clint Eastwood, Geraldine Page, Elizabeth Hartman and Jo Ann Harris. That version was directed by Don Siegel (Dirty Harry), and written by Albert Maltz, Irene Kamp and Claude Traverse. If it actually comes together, this new version by Sofia Coppola is expected to present a new adaptation of the source novel, »

The Beguiled being remade by Sofia Coppola, Nicole Kidman to star

Nicole Kidman stars in a remake of the 1971 Clint Eastwood and Don Siegel movie, The Beguiled...

The 1971 Clint Eastwood/Don Siegel movie The Beguiled looks like it’s next to get the remake treatment.

The original movie saw Eastwood star alongside Geraldine Page, and was set during the American Civil War. It told the story of a girl from a boarding school discovering an injured soldier, and duly taking him in to help him get better. But that’s where the problems begin.

Sofia Coppola is writing and directing the new take on The Beguiled, and already, she’s attracted quite a cast. Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning are headlining the movie, and the hunt is on for someone to take on the Eastwood role in the production. ‘A Chris Pratt type’ is being hunted for the part.

Sofia Coppola to Write and Direct Remake of Clint Eastwood’s ‘The Beguiled’

29 March 2016 5:45 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Sofia Coppola has found her next film after stepping away from a live action telling of ‘The Little Mermaid” at Universal.
