9 November 2015 7:54 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Saint Joan': Constance Cummings as the George Bernard Shaw heroine. Constance Cummings on stage: From sex-change farce and Emma Bovary to Juliet and 'Saint Joan' (See previous post: “Constance Cummings: Frank Capra, Mae West and Columbia Lawsuit.”) In the mid-1930s, Constance Cummings landed the title roles in two of husband Benn W. Levy's stage adaptations: Levy and Hubert Griffith's Young Madame Conti (1936), starring Cummings as a demimondaine who falls in love with a villainous character. She ends up killing him – or does she? Adapted from Bruno Frank's German-language original, Young Madame Conti was presented on both sides of the Atlantic; on Broadway, it had a brief run in spring 1937 at the Music Box Theatre. Based on the Gustave Flaubert novel, the Theatre Guild-produced Madame Bovary (1937) was staged in late fall at Broadway's Broadhurst Theatre.

Cummings Pt.2: Working with Capra and West, Fighting Columbia in Court

5 November 2015 12:05 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Constance Cummings in 'Night After Night.' Constance Cummings: Working with Frank Capra and Mae West (See previous post: “Constance Cummings: Actress Went from Harold Lloyd to Eugene O'Neill.”) Back at Columbia, Harry Cohn didn't do a very good job at making Constance Cummings feel important. By the end of 1932, Columbia and its sweet ingenue found themselves in court, fighting bitterly over stipulations in her contract. According to the actress and lawyer's daughter, Columbia had failed to notify her that they were picking up her option. Therefore, she was a free agent, able to offer her services wherever she pleased. Harry Cohn felt otherwise, claiming that his contract player had waived such a notice. The battle would spill over into 1933. On the positive side, in addition to Movie Crazy 1932 provided Cummings with three other notable Hollywood movies: Washington Merry-Go-Round, American Madness, and Night After Night. 'Washington Merry-Go-Round »

Key Largo

3 September 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Set mainly in a broken down hotel in storm-swept Key Largo, Florida, John Huston’s 1948 film expands on Maxwell Anderson’s 1939 stage play and adds Bogart, Bacall and Edward G. Robinson to insure the box office. With overtones of The Petrified Forest (which also starred Bogart), Key Largo finds mobster Robinson holding a small group of people hostage under increasingly claustrophobic conditions. One of those hostages, Claire Trevor, won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her performance.

Digging into Quentin Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' as New Images Leak

8 May 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Quentin Tarantino promises a "glorious" 70mm experience for his Civil War-era western. Here we get a sneak peek at his ambition in these snow-covered set photos of Jennifer Jason Leigh, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Demian Bechir and Walton Goggins, who he calls "The Tarantino superstars,." Also starring Channing Tatum, James Parks, Dana Gourrier, Keith Jefferson, Lee Horsley, Craig Stark, Belinda Owino and Gene Jones, the film just left Colorado to finish shooting in La, where Tarantino continues to run his 35mm haven at the New Beverly. Read More: Quentin Tarantino Enjoys Running the New Beverly, Even When He's Shooting a Movie As we learned at last year's La live read, "Hateful Eight" pays claustrophobic homage to "The Petrified Forest" and "Key Largo," where a group of strangers trapped in a contained space need to figure out who the others are in order to survive. »
