Review: "Bob Hope: Entertaining The Troops", DVD Release From Time Life

31 August 2016 3:50 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Time Life has released "Bob Hope: Entertaining the Troops", a priceless presentation of Hope's famous Uso shows for American troops serving overseas. The two programs, presented uncut, are a wonderful time capsule of the era. At the time the Vietnam War was raging and the only glimpses concerned Americans got of the fighting men were grim images squeezed into the half-hour evening news during this pre-cable TV era. Thus, Hope's merry band of entertainers allowed some welcome views of the servicemen getting a rare and well-deserved laugh from the songs, skits and stand up presented by Hope and his troupe. Not surprisingly, the biggest reactions are afforded to the sex symbols who traveled with him. In this case, they include Connie Stevens, Lola Falana, Romy Schneider and Ursula Andress. Admittedly, the humor creaks with age but the spirit and good will is timeless. One of the »

Marine Corps to Remove the Word 'Man' From 19 Job Titles

29 June 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

What's in a name? Plenty, says the Marine Corps. Nineteen of the service's job specialty names will be changed to reflect gender-neutral titles. Within the next few days, the Corps is expected to issue a mandate to remove "man" from Military Occupational Specialty (Mos) job titles such as "Infantry Assault Man" and "Basic Infantryman," and to replace gender-specific endings with "Marine." Some job titles, such as "Rifleman" and "Mortarman," will remain in place. The change comes in the wake of a months-long review mandated by Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, who also oversees the Marine Corps. Mabus requested the review in January, »

Turn: Washington's Spies Season 3 Episode 10 Review: Trial and Execution

27 June 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Better late than never, right? 

We waited three full seasons for Judge Woodhull to finally (finally!) choose kin over king and in Turn: Washington's Spies Season 3 Episode 10, he didn’t disappoint.

The best part of his choice (as much as I love Abe) was the look on Simcoe’s face when he realized that the Judge was propping up his son’s legs instead of pulling them down to ensure a quick death. 

Technically, it was the second time Abe escaped death after having a noose around his neck. The Judge also stopped the first attempt, insisting on holding a trial.

Now, Abe may not be a good spy, but he’s a great BSer.

How many times this season has he talked his way out of no-win situations with Maj. Hewlett, Robbie Rogers and even Cpt. Simcoe?

In other words, he’d make a great lawyer. Which is perfect, »

Turn: Washington's Spies Season 3 Episode 9 Review: Blade on the Feather

20 June 2016 9:46 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Damn, Jj Feild is a good actor. At five different times in Turn: Washington's Spies Season 3 Episode 9, his Major John Andre suddenly realizes that he knows nothing and is completely shocked by pretty much everyone with whom he comes in contact. 

You would think when his former lover Philomena told him that she’s pregnant, at least his eyes would register a bit of surprise. Nope. He didn’t even flinch!

What would have been an unnerving revelation for most men (past or present) turned out to be the least shocking part of Andre’s day.

Shock No. 1: Major Hewlett barges in (in the most polite way possible, of course. Miss you already, Major!) to reveal to Andre the identity of the real Culper, and to remind him that the Rebel Spy Abe Woodhull was being entertained by Andre himself a few months back.

(btw, I love how polite »

Review: "A Thunder Of Drums" (1961) Starring Richard Boone, George Hamilton And Charles Bronson; DVD From Warner Archive

11 June 2016 3:12 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

The 1961 MGM Western A Thunder of Drums has been released by the Warner Archives. The film was regarded as a standard oater in its day but has since built a loyal following who have been eager to have the movie available on the home video market. What sets A Thunder of Drums apart from many of the indistinguishable Westerns of the period is its downbeat storyline and intelligent script, which was clearly geared for adults as opposed to moppets. There's also the impressive cast: Richard Boone, George Hamilton, Charles Bronson, Arthur O'Connell, Richard Chamberlain and Slim Pickens among them.The film opens with a sequence that was very unsettling and shocking for its day: an Indian attack on a tranquil homestead. A little girl is forced to witness the gang rape and murders of her mother and teenage sister. The plot then shifts to the local fort where commandant Boone is overseeing an understaffed cavalry contingent that has to find and defeat the marauding tribe, which has already slaughtered numerous settlers and soldiers. The Indians are window dressing in the story: nameless, faceless adversaries who are not given any particular motivation for their savagery. (These was, remember, far less enlightened times and such conflicts were generally presented without nuance.)

George Hamilton is the by-the-book West Point graduate assigned to the fort as Boone's second-in-command. He gets a frosty reception from minute one. Boone tells him he doesn't meet the requirements of a seasoned officer who can survive in the hostile environment. The two men spend a good deal of their time in a psychological war of wills. Adding to Hamilton's discomfort is the discovery that his former lover, Luana Patten, is not only living at the remote outpost, but is engaged to one of his fellow officers. The two rekindle their own romance and this leads to scandalous and tragic results. 

The film is based on a novel by popular Western writer James Warner Bellah and probably represents the career high water mark of director Joseph Newman, who was destined to toil for decades helming B movies. He gets vibrant performances from his cast. The ever-watchable Boone is in his predictably crusty mode, cynically second-guessing his officers and men, tossing out insults and sucking on an omnipresent stogie. Boone was so dominant in every role he played, one wonders why he never reached a higher status as a reliable box-office figure. Hamilton is in his standard pretty boy mode, but holds his own against macho men Boone and Charles Bronson, who is cast against type as a somewhat dim-witted character of low scruples. Singer Duane Eddy, who was a teenage pop star at the time, made his film debut here with a degree of fanfare, but it was obviously last minute stunt casting as Eddy is given virtually nothing to do except strum a few chords on his guitar. The film boasts some magnificent scenery and some rousing action sequences that are more realistic than those found in  most Westerns of the time. A Thunder of Drums isn't art or even a great or important Western - but it is fine entertainment and the Warner Archive edition looks terrific. An original theatrical trailer is included.

Eric Fanning on Embracing the 'Remarkable Honor' as the First Openly Gay Army Secretary

2 June 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Secretary of the Army Eric Fanning "never thought he'd be back" at the Pentagon.

He's also the first to have served as a senior civilian executive in all three departments of the Pentagon - the Navy, the Air Force and the Army. But before that, he was a 24-year-old junior aid, working in the building under the Clinton administration. "I ended up leaving because I didn't see there was a future for me as an openly gay man, »

Belgian Royal Family Address Subjects in English for the First Time: Meet the Family of 6!

15 March 2016 1:25 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Until now, the Belgian royal family had pointedly chosen to address its subjects (along with the rest of the world) only in German, French or Dutch. But that all changes this week as Belgium's monarchy is now offering an English translation of its website. The revamped site features new family photos, along with a special section for kids, including 'A Day in the Life of the King' and 'What It's Like to Work in the Palace.' And just in case you were wondering who's who among the ruling family of this small but ultra chic European nation, here's a cheat sheet. »
