Watch: Google's Animated Doodle for Actress Hedy Lamarr's Birthday

9 November 2015 9:26 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Well this is lovely. Google decided to celebrate the 101st birthday of Inventor and Hollywood star, Hedy Lamarr, on Monday, November 9th. This would have been her 101st birthday; she passed away in the year 2000 at the age of 85. She was never nominated for any Academy Awards, but Hedy Lamarr became a very popular and beloved movie star in the late 1930s and through the 1940s because of her beauty. Louis B. Mayer at MGM found her in Europe after fleeing the war, and changed her name to Hedy Lamarr, as she was originally born as Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler in Austria. She has become popular recently because aside from her career in Hollywood, she was a scientist and inventor behind a jam-proof radio guidance system. Description from YouTube: "Animated Google Doodle celebrating the 101st birthday of Inventor and Hollywood star, Hedy Lamarr." Featuring music by Adam Ever-Hadani. She appeared in numerous popular feature films, »

Hollywood Legend, Inventor Hedy Lamarr Honored With Google Doodle

9 November 2015 7:48 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Today's Google Doodle honors Hedy Lamarr, a legendary Hollywood actress who lived a dual life as an inventor. Today would have been her 101st birthday. Known for popular films in the 1930s and 1940s like Algiers, Samson and Delilah, and The Strange Woman, the star was dubbed "the most beautiful woman in the world." The Doodle shows Lamarr's turn from the glamorous life of a famed actress to that of an inventor by night. Her patent for an idea for a frequency-hopping system, with the help of composer George Antheil, during World War II helped later to make mobile and wireless communications possible. "Any girl can be glamorous. All you have to do is stand still and look »

Academy Awards Film Series: From Class Distinctions to Incest - Adult Themes in First-Rate, Long-Thought-Lost Drama

8 October 2015 7:59 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Sorrell and Son' with H.B. Warner and Alice Joyce. 'Sorrell and Son' 1927 movie: Long thought lost, surprisingly effective father-love melodrama stars a superlative H.B. Warner Partially shot on location in England and produced independently by director Herbert Brenon at Joseph M. Schenck's United Artists, the 1927 Sorrell and Son is a skillful melodrama about paternal devotion in the face of both personal and social adversity. This long-thought-lost version of Warwick Deeping's 1925 bestseller benefits greatly from the veteran Brenon's assured direction, deservedly shortlisted in the first year of the Academy Awards.* Crucial to the film's effectiveness, however, is the portrayal of its central character, a war-scarred Englishman who sacrifices it all for the happiness of his son. Luckily, the London-born H.B. Warner, best remembered for playing Jesus Christ in another 1927 release, Cecil B. DeMille's The King of Kings, is the embodiment of honesty, selflessness, and devotion.

Nasty Politics and Eyebrow-Raising Gossip During Hollywood's Golden Age: Brackett's Must-Read Diaries

25 September 2015 3:33 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Charles Brackett ca. 1945: Hollywood diarist and Billy Wilder's co-screenwriter (1936–1949) and producer (1945–1949). Q&A with 'Charles Brackett Diaries' editor Anthony Slide: Billy Wilder's screenwriter-producer partner in his own words Six-time Academy Award winner Billy Wilder is a film legend. He is renowned for classics such as The Major and the Minor, Double Indemnity, Sunset Blvd., Witness for the Prosecution, Some Like It Hot, and The Apartment. The fact that Wilder was not the sole creator of these movies is all but irrelevant to graduates from the Auteur School of Film History. Wilder directed, co-wrote, and at times produced his films. That should suffice. For auteurists, perhaps. But not for those interested in the whole story. That's one key reason why the Charles Brackett diaries are such a great read. Through Brackett's vantage point, they offer a welcome – and unique – glimpse into the collaborative efforts that resulted in »
