‘Women He’s Undressed’ Exclusive Clip: New Documentary About Legendary Hollywood Costume Designer Orry-Kelly

27 July 2016 1:47 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Though actors, writers, and directors often receive the lion’s share of the credit for the success of a film, there are plenty of people behind the scenes that do marvelous, unsung work. Take legendary Hollywood costume designer Orry-Kelly for instance, who put his signature on such films like “Casablanca,” “42nd Street,” “An American in Paris,” and more. The new documentary “Women He’s Undressed” explores the life and career of Orry-Kelly by mixing recreations of his life with testimonies from intimates and admirers in order to better understand one of the godfathers of glamour. Some of the interviewees include Jane FondaAngela LansburyLeonard Maltin, and more. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below featuring a discussion about Orry-Kelly’s work on Billy Wilder’s “Some Like It Hot.”

Doc Corner: 'Women He's Undressed' Reveals Hollywood Couture

26 July 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here. Each Tuesday we bring you reviews and features on documentaries from theatres, festivals, and on demand.

Gillian Armstrong is nearly as prolific as a documentarian as she is a dramatic filmmaker. While the likes of her “Seven Years On” series (an Australian 7 Up), her Bob Dylan concert doc Hard to Handle, or the true crime murder mystery of an interior design queen in Unfolding Florence aren’t as well-known as her collaborations with Judy Davis, Cate Blanchett, Mel Gibson, and Winona Ryder, they are eclectic and passionate works nonetheless. As she said in her interview with Jose last year at Toronto, “there’s a different art to making documentaries” and unlike many other directors who split their time between mediums, her documentaries do feel distinctly unique from her other work and yet equally essential.

Her latest non-fiction work is Women He’s Undressed, a peek behind the velvet curtain at Orry-Kelly, »

Night & Fog (Alain Resnais)

Ten years after the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps, filmmaker Alain Resnais documented the abandoned grounds of Auschwitz and Majdanek in Night and Fog (Nuit et brouillard), one of the first cinematic reflections on the Holocaust. Juxtaposing the stillness of the abandoned camps’ empty buildings with haunting wartime footage, Resnais investigates humanity’s capacity for violence, and presents the devastating suggestion that such horrors could occur again. – Criterion

Bones Round Table: Do You Like Booth in Glasses?

18 July 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Booth tried to hide his need for glasses while the team chased a murderer and a jewel thief, and Hodgins made an amazing discovery on Bones Season 11 Episode 21.

Our TV Fanatics Ashley Sumerel and Christine Orlando are joined by Pam from Cbr Radio to talk poltergeists, men in glasses, and their favorite scenes from “The Jewel in the Crown.”

Did you think there was a poltergeist, seismic tremors or something else entirely?

Pam: No, I thought it was something to do with the body they found and wasn't even thinking that it was Hodgins’ body/legs causing the freak things happening. Delighted that he is feeling movement and hope he walks again.

Ashley: I figured it was something else. Actually, I really figured it was something to do with Hodgins' healing process, and thank goodness it was that and not actually a poltergeist!

Madeleine LeBeau obituary

16 May 2016 5:21 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Last surviving cast member of Casablanca who played Yvonne

The strong plot, the exotic setting, the quotable, piquant dialogue, the cherished performances from a magnificent cast and the emotional Max Steiner score – not forgetting Dooley Wilson as Sam playing As Time Goes By – have ensured that Casablanca (1942) remains the most popular film from Hollywood’s golden age. Madeleine LeBeau (sometimes credited as Lebeau), who has died aged 92, the last surviving member of the cast, was among those whom cinephiles have sanctified for her special connection with Casablanca. LeBeau played Yvonne, one of the many French refugees seeking solace in the Café Americain, run by Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), a cynical isolationist.

You must remember this … at the bar sits the attractive Yvonne, who has obviously been drowning her sorrows because Rick has jilted her. “Where were you last night?” she asks him as he passes by. “That’s so long ago, »

‘Casablanca’ Actress Madeleine LeBeau Dies at 92

15 May 2016 7:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madeleine LeBeau, who played Humphrey Bogart’s jilted mistress Yvonne, in “Casablanca,” died May 1 in Spain after breaking her thigh bone. She was 92 and was the last surviving credited cast member of the classic film. Her stepson Carlo Alberto Pinelli confirmed her death to Variety.

In “Casablanca,” LeBeau gets teary-eyed when “La Marseillaise” is played and shouts “Viva la France!” She was among several cast members who were actually refugees from the German occupation.

Her life echoed the film: After she made her screen debut in French film “Girls in Distress” in 1939, LeBeau and her husband, actor Marcel Dalio, fled Paris for Portugal. They were said to have received transit visas that allowed them to enter Spain and then Portugal before continuing on towards Chile. They were stranded in Mexico when their visas turned out to be forgeries and were able to enter the United States with temporary Canadian passports. »

Cinemascore and exit polling in Hollywood: what is it?

If a film gets a Cinemascore of B or C, it's often classed as a disappointment. But what is a Cinemascore?

The process of marketing a movie is now an operation that lasts many months across all sorts of media, from bus stop posters to social media campaigns, all in pursuit of making sure the movie makes an impact in its opening weekend. Tracking and analytics can give an indication of how audiences are responding before the movie even hits cinemas, but it's only in that opening weekend, once they've actually seen the movie, that you can get a more accurate read on public opinion.

Box office aside, one way in which Hollywood's studios reads public response after release is Cinemascore, the Las Vegas-based market research firm which conducts nationwide exit polls. Billed as “Hollywood's Benchmark”, the company's researchers gathers information from filmgoers and the results, expressed as letter grades, »

Examining Hollywood Remakes: The Hollow Man

8 May 2016 7:26 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Our series on remakes continues with a movie which is ironic because it’s about a man who can’t be seen but in reality, it’s actually the movie which shouldn’t be seen. This week, Cinelinx looks at The Hollow Man (2000).

The Hollow Man is a modern reimaging of the oft-copied Invisible Man story, first brought to the screen by Universal Studios in 1933. The story is based on H. G. Wells' famous science fiction novel “The Invisible Man”, published in 1897, which told the tale of a scientist who develops an invisibility serum and uses himself as a test subject, becoming both invisible and dangerously insane.

The 1933 classic The Invisible Man, which was part of Universal Studios cluster of successful horror film franchises, was directed by James Whale, who also directed Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein. The 1933 version has an impressive 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It was selected »

The 80 Best-Directed Films, According to the Directors Guild of America

3 May 2016 6:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With editors and cinematographers chiming in on the best examples of their craft in cinema history, it’s now time for directors to have a say. To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Directors Guild of America, they’ve conducted a poll for their members when it comes to the 80 greatest directorial achievements in feature films since the organization’s founding in 1936. With 2,189 members participating, the top pick went to Francis Ford Coppola for The Godfather, one of three films from the director making the top 10.

Even with films from nonmembers being eligible, the male-dominated, America-centric choices are a bit shameful (Kathryn Bigelow is the only female director on the list, and the first foreign film doesn’t show up until number 26), but not necessarily surprising when one looks at the make-up of its membership. As with any list, there’s bound to be disagreements (Birdman besting The Bicycle Thief, »

Best Gambling Scenes In Movies

13 April 2016 1:06 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Gambling has become a part of the movies, and indeed television as well. In a recent episode of the new HBO TV show Vinyl, which is executive produced by filmmaking legend Martin Scorsese, Terence Winter and none other than Mick Jagger, the show’s protagonist Richie Finestra (played by Bobby Canavale) was seen pushing $90,000 onto the roulette table after selling the company’s private jet.

It’s quite a powerful and brave scene, but of course film and television content have had a long relationship, and with free online pokies featuring famous properties, including Game Of Thrones and even the classic Hitchcock film Psycho, their tie is becoming even greater. The worlds of gambling and film and TV are becoming more aligned.

Vinyl may be the latest TV show to feature gambling, but it certainly wasn’t the first. Here, we take a look at our favourite gambling scenes from the movies, »
