Where the Boys Are

26 July 2017 11:04 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Heading for Spring Break somewhere? Long before Girls Gone Wild, kids of the Kennedy years found their own paths to the desired fun in the sun, and most of them came back alive. MGM’s comedic look at the Ft. Lauderdale exodus is a half-corny but fully endearing show, featuring the great Dolores Hart and the debuts of Connie Francis, Paula Prentiss and Jim Hutton.

Film Review: ‘The Fabulous Allan Carr’

3 July 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A life lived very large — although his plus-size physicality would be the source of perpetual insecurity and eventual health woes — Allan Carr was both the quintessential Hollywood showman and an exception to most of its rules. His attraction to glamour and glitz was old-school, yet the camp edge he brought to it as a “flamboyantly” out gay man was often a bit much for staid industry mind-sets. His hits (big-screen “Grease,” the stage “La Cage aux Folles”) were record breakers, though some might argue his flops were even more unforgettable — one, the notorious 1989 Academy Awards ceremony he produced, stirring such intense backlash it abruptly ended his career.

Garishly colorful, packed with stars, legendary parties, and a wide streak of pathos, it’s a singular life story entertainingly recounted in “The Fabulous Allan Carr.” This latest documentary by Jeffery Schwarz isn’t as warts-and-all dishy an approach to that saga as the 2010 print tome “Party Animals,” by »

Hal Geer, Former Warner Bros. Cartoons Exec, Dies at 100

2 February 2017 3:19 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Retired Warner Bros. Cartoons executive Hal Geer died in Simi Valley, California, on Jan. 26. He was 100.

Geer, also a combat cameraman during World War II, spent decades working with iconic Loony Tunes characters and was responsible for Bugs Bunny’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Born in 1916 in Oronogo, Mississippi, Harold Eugene Geer spent the majority of his career among beloved cartoon characters. But before that, Geer married his wife Nancy Walker and joined the Army Air Corps just two weeks after the bombing at Pearl Harbor. He flew with the Flying Tigers over China during 86 missions and even doubled as a B-24 and B-25 gunner while also shooting news footage.

After the war, the duo moved to Hollywood where Geer served as a film editor, writer, director, and producer for Walt Disney, Warner Bros., and independent production companies on 25 feature films, more than 500 television shows, 400 commercials, and 100 short-subject films. »
