Roots Run Deep at Hollywood in Vienna, Where Randy Newman Is Being Honored

11 September 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Vienna might be synonymous with Mozart and Strauss, but Sandra Tomek, founder and director of Hollywood in Vienna, perceives equally strong ties to such movie maestros as Max Steiner and Erich Wolfgang Korngold, who established themselves in the Austrian capital before blossoming as key pioneers of the Hollywood film score tradition.

So when Randy Newman receives the Max Steiner Award at the dual Sept. 24-25 event taking place at the city’s storied Vienna Concert Hall, with cousin and fellow film composer David Newman conducting, Tomek views the honor as both a link to the past and a celebration of the present.

Alfred Newman, David’s father, was a colleague of Max Steiner,” Tomek explains. “And also the Newman family came from Eastern Europe (Russia, to be exact). So there are a lot of ties which are really interesting.”

The award is determined by an international committee of 20 people who »

Lauren Bacall Lives! To Have And Have Not Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

7 September 2014 7:20 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“You know you don’t have to act with me, Steve. You don’t have to say anything, and you don’t have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? You just put your lips together and… blow!”

If Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall (who died last month) occupy the same screen, you can safely expect fireworks! To Have And Have Not (1944) was Bacall’s debut performance, the movie that introduced both audiences and Bogart {he would marry her the following year} to one of cinema’s most iconic beauties and to her erotically husky voice. To Have And Have Not is an interesting mixture of war-time adventure and hard-boiled film-noir, set on the island of Martinique under the Vichy regime, and Bogart’s Harry “Steve” Morgan is forced to navigate swathes of low-lifes and immoral authority figures. »

Movie Review – The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)

29 August 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (a.k.a. Das Cabinet des Caligari), 1920.

Directed by Robert Wiene.

Starring Werner Krauss, Conrad Viedt, Friedrich Fehér, Hans Lanser-Rudolff, Hans Heinrich von Twardowski and Lil Dagover.

Synopsis:

At a local carnival in a small German Town, hypnotist Dr. Caligari presents the somnambulist Cesare, who can purportedly predict the future of curious fairgoers. But at night, the doctor wakes Cesare from his sleep to enact his evil bidding…

The history of cinema harks back to few films that are as important and iconic as Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari. An expressionist masterpiece, Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari is, for a limited time, back in the cinema. Re-mastered and screened from August 29th, the cinematic experience is a rare treat as the hand-painted backdrops and subtle face make-up can be seen up-close and appreciated in the way it was intended (perhaps even better). As filmmaking was finding its feet, »

'Life' remembers Ingrid Bergman's landmark career

29 August 2014 9:23 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Cinephiles and casual film fans alike will have some familiarity with Ingrid Bergman’s large body of work. The actress is perhaps most widely remembered for her starring role opposite Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, but Bergman’s more than 40-year career is replete with memorable—and award-winning—roles. On the anniversary of her passing, Life has compiled a gallery of Bergman to celebrate her career.

In tracking Bergman’s time in the spotlight, which included three Academy Awards and appearances in films like For Whom the Bell TollsJoan of Arc, and Gaslight, Life recalls a 1943 interview with the actress in which she said, »

He was believed to be 79.Born in 1935, the New Yorker had a brief acting career before migrating to the other side of the camera.

During the mid-to-late ‘50s he landed acting roles in TV staples like Gunsmoke and Perry Mason, as well as Kirk Douglas Western Gunfight At The O.K. Corral and Elvis musical King Creole.Soon after Hutton came to the attention of Universal Studios’ New Horizons programme. The studio’s low-budget production scheme for young directors afforded him his first experience of directing work, »

Remembering Lauren Bacall... and the sexiest movie debut of all time in 'To Have and Have Not'

13 August 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

With her sleepy, seductive eyes and patrician, pack-a-day voice, the actress enters the room of Humphrey Bogart’s world-weary fishing-boat captain, Harry Morgan. She calls him “Steve” even though that is not his name, and offers him money to help him get out of a fix—we get the impression that it’s merely the latest in a long line of fixes resulting from hard luck and muddled politics that Bogie’s character will have to get out of. He stubbornly refuses her offer. Pride and all that. She falls into his lap and plants a kiss on his unexpecting lips. »

5 Roles That Made Lauren Bacall the Coolest Woman in Movie History

12 August 2014 5:36 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Humphrey Bogart — and then audiences — fell in love with Lauren Bacall, whose 1944 debut To Have And Have Not showcased her alluring cool and smoldering charm. Though just 19, she more than held her own acting opposite Bogart, who at 44 was already a star and hot off of Casablanca. The actress, who died Monday at 89, thrived during her decades-spanning career, continuing to prove why she had quickly shot to stardom in the first place. Here, we look at the five key roles that elevated Bacall to icon status. To Have And Have Not (1944) Bacall's

Movie Review – M (1931)

10 August 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

M, 1931.

Directed by Fritz Lang.

Starring Peter Lorre, Ellen Widmann, Inge Landgut and Otto Wernicke.

Synopsis:

A child-killer is on the loose. The police can’t seem to track him down and the crime gangs even take the matter into their hands. One man labels the murderer with the letter ‘M’ on his back using chalk, and slowly the culprit is found out…

In the media storm involving Rolf Harris and Jimmy Saville, it seems to be the relevant moment to rerelease the incredible thriller M. An unforgettable tale of a child-killer, Hans – labelled by the letter ‘M’ – preys on children using balloons and sweets. His horrific acts are not only investigated by the police but by the victims, gangs and criminals of the town. As part of the Peter Lorre season at the BFI, M is a must-see in the actor’s catalogue as it defined his character in many of his future films, »

Watch the color version of ‘Nebraska’ on cable (or don’t)

6 August 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

If you’re a fan of Alexander Payne’s Oscar nominated Nebraska, you may have said to yourself, “I like this movie a lot, but I just wish I could watch it in a much worse, more generic and plain ruined format.”

Well now is your chance. The Playlist reports that the cable channel Epix is proudly promoting the world premiere of Nebraska, in full color. The film will air this Sunday August 10 at 10 Pm Et, just after a showing of the original version of Nebraska in black and white.

Granted, this isn’t CBS turning Humphrey Bogart’s suit powder blue so they can show Casablanca during Christmas. Due to negotiations in trying to get the film made, Cinematographer Phedon Papamichael was forced to shoot the film in digital, not black and white film stock, so a color version does exist. Payne even says it looks very good, but »

Maybe Not Today: The Underrated Michael Curtiz

5 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

1942’s Casablanca has repeatedly been canonized as the best film Hollywood ever made. Its iconic dialogue produced a bevy of quotable lines that sealed seated their seemingly eternal place in movie culture, and it’s damn near impossible to refer to Humphrey Bogart’s iconic career without bringing to mind his worn mug reminiscing to Dooley Wilson’s iteration of “As Time Goes By” in his empty bar’s depths of night. Never has Bogie been so tragically Bogie, or, for that matter, Bergman so classically Bergman, Rains so nobly Rains, Lorre so campily Lorre, and the film’s team of studio scribes so harmoniously in tune towards a pitch-perfect example of Hollywood narrative convention. Given the vaunted reputation of Casablanca, it’s strange that the film’s director, Michael Curtiz, is so often obscured within observations of its notable ensemble, much less considered the film’s reigning auteur.

TCM Offers Controversial (and Legendary) Actress Fonda Film Marathon Today

1 August 2014 7:21 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Jane Fonda movies on TCM: ‘The China Syndrome,’ ‘Klute,’ and Jean-Luc Godard drama ‘Tout Va Bien’ among highlights (photo: Jane Fonda in ‘Klute’) Turner Classic Movies’ 2014 "Summer Under the Stars" kicked off earlier today, August 1, with a day-long series of Jane Fonda movies. Still reviled by American right-wingers because of her 1972 trip to North Vietnam while the United States was at war with that country — she was photographed seated on an anti-aircraft battery — but admired by others for her liberal views, anti-war activism, and human rights advocacy, the two-time Best Actress Academy Award winner has enjoyed a highly eclectic film career, eventually becoming a rarity among rarities: Jane Fonda is the child of a film star (Henry Fonda) who not only became a film star in her own right, but who went on to become an even bigger screen legend than her famous parent.

10 Most Cringeworthy Kisses In Movie History

21 July 2014 5:11 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

Ah, yes: the timeless art of kissing; the act of pressing one’s lips against another person. A kiss can express sentiments of passion, love, affection, greeting, friendship, respect, peace and good luck. Over the years the world of cinema has given us its fair share of well executed and memorable kissing scenes, from Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca to Molly Ringwald and Michael Schoeffling in Sixteen Candles.

On the flip side, the world of film has also given us its fair share of awkward on-screen lip-locking moments as well. Smooches that instantly make you cringe, either from laughable amusement or unquestionable distaste. Sometimes it’s deliberate; other times it’s due to chemistry. Occasionally, there isn’t a clear reason. No matter the cause, the audience ends up recoiling.

The fact of the matter is that Hollywood constantly tries to shoehorn a love story in »

Steven Spielberg: The Top 25 (Best Director)

16 June 2014 9:43 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Here we go again folks with another Top 25 article today, and it’s one of the big ones. Yes, this time around I’ll be tackling one of the biggest of the big eight categories in an effort not to save them all for very last. This one is the Best Director field. This is another category that usually has a rather big tie in with Best Picture, as you’ll see below to some degree once again. As always, I have a few specific titles I’ll be citing in detail later on in this piece, but by now I know how the game works here. You all mostly just want to see the lists I do anyhow, so I have no problem obliging you good folks there in that particular regard once again. All you have to do is just be patient over the next paragraph or so »

Metropolitan FilmExport at 25: Sammy Hadida’s Top 10 Pics

22 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Metropolitan FilmExport topper thinks back on the films he’s seen and handled in his career and names some of his favorites.

1. King Kong

My dad, who was distributing Rko movies in Casablanca, showed us the movie and I was so amazed by the adventure, the spectacle it provided.

2. Casablanca

Beyond the fact that the film resonated with me because I was raised in Casablanca, I loved the mythical couple formed by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.

3. Vertigo

That film is still referenced. Hitchcock was able to weave amazing suspense in a story that he mastered from the beginning to the end.

4. Some Like It Hot

Marilyn Monroe was on the cover of Playboy on the day I was born so I’ve always had a soft spot for her.

5. Horror of Dracula

That movie traumatized me. It took me a while to get over it, but I loved it. »

William Friedkin on New Technology, the 'Exorcist' Curse, and the McConnaissance

25 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Without really trying, William Friedkin has been on the cutting edge for nearly half a century.

He won Best Picture and Best Director for "The French Connection" (1971), followed it up with the scariest movie of all time (1973's "The Exorcist"), and followed that up with "Sorcerer" (1977), a movie so far ahead of its time that only in recent years has it been acknowledged as an overlooked masterpiece. (A newly-restored print of the allegorical adventure tale, released this week on Blu-ray, should help burnish the film's reputation.)

At 78, Friedkin continues to stay ahead of the pack. In his most recent movie, "Killer Joe" (2011), he cast Matthew McConaughey in an unlikely role as a corrupt cop/hitman, thus helping launch the "McConnaissance" that changed the actor's image and led to his recent Oscar victory for "Dallas Buyers Club." For his upcoming projects, he's thrilled to be working in digital and scoffs at »

New on Video: ‘Sabrina’

17 April 2014 9:01 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sabrina

Written by Billy Wilder, Samuel A. Taylor, and Ernest Lehman

Directed by Billy Wilder

USA, 1954

The past few weeks have been good for Humphrey Bogart on Blu-ray. The Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, and The African Queen were recently rereleased and assembled for the Best of Bogart Collection, and now, Sabrina, one of the legendary star’s final films, has received its first American appearance on the format. Perhaps more importantly, if total number of titles available on Blu-ray is the basis for judgment, Sabrina also marks one of disappointingly few Billy Wilder titles available in the remastered form. That the film also stars the radiant Audrey Hepburn and the remarkably versatile William Holden confirms that the release is worth commending.

From about 1944, with Double Indemnity, to Irma la Douce in 1963, Wilder had an astonishing run in Hollywood, and Sabrina came roughly in the middle of that period. »
