Home to Larry David, Giancarlo Esposito, Terrence Howard, Alicia Keys, Angela Lansbury, Alan Menken, Mickey Rourke, Christian Slater, Tennessee Williams, and more, Manhattan Plaza was a social experiment born in the 1970s.

‘Bonnie and Clyde’ at 50: A Revolutionary Film That Now Looks Like the Last Work of Hollywood Classicism

‘Bonnie and Clyde’ at 50: A Revolutionary Film That Now Looks Like the Last Work of Hollywood Classicism
Fifty years ago today, American movies were born again. That was the day “Bonnie and Clyde,” the lethally disruptive and exciting gangster saga that brought on the implosion of Hollywood — and the reinvention of Hollywood — was released in theaters. The gun-on-the-run magnetism of Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway; the ’30s desolation set to a jaunty bluegrass vibe; the bursts of violence and quick stinging death; the burnished colors; the screwball neurotic players (Gene Hackman, Michael J. Pollard, Estelle Parsons, Gene Wilder); the fantastic doomed recklessness of it all.

It took a while for “Bonnie and Clyde” to catch on. The picture stumbled out of the gate, and its studio, Warner Bros., had to reboot its opening. But once that happened, “Bonnie and Clyde” dunked the cinema in a baptism of style and blood and glamour and adulthood. It was a revolution both holy and unholy. From that moment on, American films would reach higher than they ever

7 Amazing Facts You Probably Never Knew About Florence Henderson (Photos)
Florence Henderson, who died of heart failure at age 82 on Nov. 24, had a long career on TV and Broadway. She’s best-remembered as housewife Carol Brady on the 1970s sitcom “The Brady Bunch,” but there was much more to her than that. Henderson was a Broadway star when NBC tapped her in 1959 as a “‘Today’ Girl,” the correspondent tapped to discuss fashion and other “light” topics. Gender roles were different then, but Henderson was in great company: Other “‘Today’ Girls” included Barbara Walters and Estelle Parsons. Henderson would later co-host “Today” in 1999-2000. In 1962, Henderson became the first...

Box Office: Ghostbusters, Sultan, Café Society

Though the new Ghostbusters couldn't defeat the very family friendly Secret Life of Pets to take the box office crown, it was still a win for Paul Feig & Melissa McCarthy company (their best opening yet, just beating their previous best for The Heat). Other winners this weekend: Sultan, the Bollywood sports drama starring Salman Khan, is now the #1 foreign language release of the year, jumping over the Chinese hits The Mermaid and Ip Man 3; Woody Allen's Café Society experienced more demand in its opening weekend than of his films since Blue Jasmine; and, finally, the provocative survivalist family drama Captain Fantastic led by a typically sterling Viggo Mortensen expanded fairly well. Next weekend will be key for Captain Fantastic with word of mouth; there's neither anything like it in the marketplace nor really anything to compare it to in ages (since maybe The Mosquito Coast in the Eighties?) but
