Hemingway Foundation Turns Author’s Novels Into 15-Second Instagram Videos

21 November 2014 11:14 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

What would famous novels look like today if made into short video clips? The Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park of Illinois can show what three books would look like with their 15-second Instagram renditions of Hemingway’s top titles. The Foundation partnered with ad agency Ogilvy and Mather in Chicago to create the super-short versions of A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man and the Sea. The 15-second video ads contain eye-catching animations and manage to get across the main point of each novel in a compelling (if not slightly humorous) way. According to the foundation, it debuted the Farewell to Arms ad specifically to commemorate the 100th year anniversary of the beginning of World War I back in 1914. But the Instagram campaign was made for more than just remembrance. MediaBistro’s Agency Spy notes the Foundation wanted to make Hemingway’s works »

Blu-ray Review: 'A Farewell to Arms'

22 September 2014 7:08 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★★"Illicit love! Illegitimate birth! Desertion from the army!" cried the Hollywood censors at the prospect of bringing Ernest Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms to the screen. "This is a magnificently written story and a great one but it is not a story for a picture." It was the sort of renegade content that the 1930 Hays Code censorship guidelines had forbidden, but Frank Borzage's 1932 film was one of the movies to escape intact (at least briefly). In 1938, by which time a proper body was created with sufficient resources to implement the Code, A Farewell to Arms was seen again, cut to ribbons and rereleased. Whichever way it appeared, Hemingway didn't like it.

Acting Legend Elaine Stritch Dead At 89, A Family Friend Shares Her Memories

17 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Iconic actress and singer Elaine Stritch died at her home in Birmingham, Mich. on Thursday. She was 89 years old. Recent fans may know her best as the Jack Donaghy’s brash mother on 30 Rock, but her extensive career goes back to the 1940s. With her work spanning across television, film, and Broadway, she truly embodied the role of the performer.

Prior to returning to her home state due to ill health last year, Stritch was a fixture of New York City — in fact, the New York Landmarks Conservancy declared her a Living Landmark in 2003. She ruled Broadway with an iron voice, starting off as an understudy for the equally brassy Ethel Merman in 1950′s Call Me Madam. From there her star continued to ascend, taking roles in William Inge’s 1955 drama Bus Stop, Noël Coward‘s 1961 Sail Away, and Stephen Sondheim‘s 1970 musical Company, singing the immortal “Ladies Who Lunch. »

Elaine Stritch, Acerbic Tony and Emmy Winner, Dies at 89

17 July 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Actress Elaine Stritch, star of Broadway hits including “Elaine Stritch at Liberty” and “Show Boat,” who was nominated for multiple Tonys and Emmys, winning three of the latter, has died. She was 89.

Stritch, an atypical star of stage and screen known for her association with Stephen Sondheim, quickly gained a reputation for the worldly, acerbic wit that often defined her characters. In her one-woman show “Elaine Stritch at Liberty,” Stritch talked candidly about battling the bottle and her colorful, albeit destructive, love life. Her role as the drunk yet lucid Claire in “A Delicate Balance” earned her a 1996 Tony nomination for best actress. Roles in “Bus Stop,” “Sail Away” and “Company” snagged her three other noms while “Elaine Stritch at Liberty” won her the 2002 award for special theatrical event.

On television, Stritch was memorable late in her career for her recurring role on NBC’s “30 Rock” as the crusty, goofy »

Movie Review – A Farewell to Arms (1932)

30 May 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A Farewell to Arms, 1932

Directed by Frank Borzage.

Starring Gary Cooper, Helen Hayes, Adolphe Menjou and Mary Philips.

Synopsis:

A tale of the love between an ambulance driver and a nurse during World War I.

Based on the Ernest Hemingway semi-autobiographical A Farewell to Arms,Frank Borzage’s1932 filmis considered one of the best adaptations of his novels. An important film that tackles the war pessimistically, it celebrates the unique and romantic love forged between a Lieutenant and nurse and the tragic outcome. A Farewell to Arms boldly stated how commonplace pre-marital sex was during the Great War, while also tackling the fracturing relationship and conflict soldiers had towards the cause itself. Something frowned upon by the Hays Code who deemed that “lustful kissing” and the scenes of childbirth needed to be excised from the film. Thank God David O. Selznick had an original nitrate copy after garnering the rights »

Turks & Caicos; The Widower, W1A; Line of Duty – review

22 March 2014 5:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Bill Nighy's hunted spy, Reece Shearsmith's creepy killer and Keeley Hawes's haunted cop were among the highlights of an amazing week for British TV drama

Turks & Caicos (BBC2) | iPlayer

The Widower (ITV) | ITV Player

W1A (BBC 2) | iPlayer

Line of Duty (BBC2) | iPlayer

What a splendid yet depressing week for British drama. I say that only because I can't quite remember another week when there was simply so much damned fine stuff available, and suspect that this week in March 2014 will go down as, in the disconcertingly American shorthand of our times, a game-changer. Anyone now attempting to write a drama script for TV will henceforth have, surely, to up said game, and any mediocre writer will grow depressed. So: no more thinly dimensioned alcoholic cribbage-loving cops, tetchy fat posh tweedy pathologists, heart-of-gold whores, skinny damaged a) matriarchs, or b) lady psychiatrists, or, please God, sleuthing gardeners, »

Stephen Colbert's Book Club Takes on Hemingway (Video)

22 January 2014 9:18 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ernest Hemingway -- genius writer or macho cliche? Or both?  Stephen Colbert's latest installment of The Colbert Book Club, lovingly and admittedly stolen from Oprah, lets you choose. The host puts on a safari jacket, holds a gun and swigs from a wineskin while pretending to have read A Farewell to Arms. And in his role as literary critic and book club leader, he extolls the virtues of Hemingway's pared-down prose, unequaled by anyone except the Incredible Hulk. As he reminds us: " 'Hulk smash.' Classic Hemingway." Take a look at these segments from The Colbert Report. The two introductory segments are pricelessly funny, whether you adore Hemingway or think he's a blight on civilization. (Personally, I think A Farewell to Arms and The Sun Also Rises are always worth revisiting. They're not The Great Gatsby, but you can't have everything.) As always, Colbert is better than anyone at truly loving, »
