Patrick Stewart on the Joy of Being Whipped with Wet Towels

20 August 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

During the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Patrick Stewart – who played the show's dramatically serious, almost Shakespearean Captain Jean-Luc Picard – said something he has always regretted. A veteran of serious theater, the actor projected a grave sobriety off-camera as well as on, so when fellow cast member Denise Crosby attempted to crack his exterior, saying, "Come on, Patrick, we've got to have fun sometimes," he blew up.

Laurel And Hardy Celebration, August 8th In New York City

9 July 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

The Sons of the Desert, the international organization founded to celebrate the works of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, will hold a 50th anniversary banquet at the famed Lambs Club in New York City on August 8. The Sons of the Desert (named after one of Laurel and Hardy's classic feature film comedies) was founded in 1965 with the blessing of Stan Laurel shortly before his death. Since then the organization's local chapters (known as  "tents" ) meet regularly in various locations around the globe. This 50th anniversary celebration is not only open to members of the Sons of the Desert but to the general public as well. Guests will include legendary horror show host John Zacherle ("The Cool Ghoul"), famed comedic actor Larry Storch as well as Jerry Tucker, the last surviving member of the Our Gang comedies. The emcee will be Cinema Retro's own Doug Gerbino, a lifelong historian of Laurel and Hardy. »

That’s the message that Grand Sheik Jack Roth has asked me to spread. You can learn more at I’m sorry I can’t travel back East that weekend, but the mere thought of this event makes me nostalgic, as I did attend the 2nd banquet forty-nine years ago; it was one of the greatest nights of my life.
