I was trying to figure out what genre Steven Spielberg's The Sugarland Express fits in while preparing today's Movie Club entry. It's definitely got drama as Lou Jean (Goldie Hawn), an ex-con, convinces her husband Clovis (William Atherton) to break out of pre-release four months before he's due to be released free and clear. Their goal is to make a run for Sugarland, Texas where they hope to get their child out of foster care, a child that was removed from their custody due to the misdemeanors that landed them in prison. These two eventually hit the road by hitching a ride with an elderly couple, but the fact the old man won't drive any faster than 30 miles an hour on the freeway results in them stealing the car. A police chase ensues, ultimately resulting in the kidnapping of a police officer (Michael Sacks) and hijacking his cruiser. To »

The new CBS Sherlock Holmes pilot will introduce Joan Watson to the world. But is that as ridiculous as it first sounds?
Kind of. Elementary – the new modern-day Sherlock Holmes pilot being produced in America by CBS – has cast Lucy Liu as Joan Watson, a struck-off surgeon who lives in Brooklyn with Sherlock and acts as his "sober companion" following his stint in rehab. Together they'll solve crimes, kick ass and – let's not kid ourselves here – probably fall in love.
Now, the easiest thing to do when presented with this news would be to slap your head in despair. Watson? A woman? What madness is this? Won't this cancel out the asexual ambiguity of Sherlock's character? Why stop there? »

Recounting his experiences in summer stock, Conrad John Schuck is almost elegiac.His memories evoke images right out of a Judy Garland–Mickey Rooney film in which the kids decide to put on a show in a barn. The living conditions were rugged, the money negligible at best, but boy did they have fun. Ten shows in 11 weeks and the opportunity to tackle a range of roles they wouldn't have the chance to play for another 30 years. And, man, were there characters—from eccentric directors to the summer-stock entrepreneurs, who ran their companies like little fiefdoms and always dressed the part. One was clad in a tuxedo, while another toted "what looked like a 4-foot cigar." Schuck also remembers a borderline-psychotic actor who was off her meds and appeared in the producer's office stark naked, proclaiming that she was a Blackfoot Indian princess.Conrad John SchuckA veteran actor whose credits include Broadway, »
