The Top Ten Funny Ladies of the Movies

The recent box office success of The Boss firmly establishes Melissa McCarthy as the current queen of movie comedies (Amy Schumer could be a new contender after an impressive debut last Summer with Trainwreck), but let us think back about those other funny ladies of filmdom. So while we’re enjoying the female reboot/re-imagining of Ghostbusters and those Bad Moms, here’s a top ten list that will hopefully inspire lots of laughter and cause you to search out some classic comedies. It’s tough to narrow them down to ten, but we’ll do our best, beginning with… 10. Eve Arden The droll Ms. Arden represents the comic sidekicks who will attempt to puncture the pomposity of the leading ladies with a well-placed wisecrack (see also the great Thelma Ritter in Rear Window). Her career began in the early 1930’s with great bit roles in Stage Door and Dancing Lady.

Listen to Over 6 Minutes of Thomas Newman’s Score for Skyfall

We were recently treated to Adele’s swell theme song for director Sam Mendes’ upcoming James Bond film Skyfall, but there’s another musical aspect to the pic that plays a fairly important role: the score. David Arnold composed the score for every Bond film since 1997’s Tomorrow Never Dies, but Mendes made a change and brought in his longtime collaborator Thomas Newman to do the music for Skyfall. In addition to scoring all of Mendes’ films except Away We Go, Newman is responsible for such memorable scores as Wall-e, Angels in America, and The Shawshank Redemption. A nearly 7-minute preview of Newman’s Skyfall score has now landed online, giving us a taste of what’s in store for the excellent-looking new Bond film. The score sounds suitably Bond-esque, and I look forward to hearing Newman’s work in full when the film opens on November 9th. Hit the jump to take a listen.
