A New Leaf – Olive Signature

Filtered through her experience as an unequalled comic performer, writer-director Elaine May scores a bulls-eye with this grossly underappreciated gem, fashioned in a style that could be called ‘black comedy lite.’ And that’s the release version mangled by the producer. What might it have been if May had been allowed to finish her director’s cut?

What to Expect From Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Wedding: The Dress, Ceremony and Bridal Party (Exclusive)

What to Expect From Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Wedding: The Dress, Ceremony and Bridal Party (Exclusive)
The countdown is on to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s spring 2018 wedding and Et got the scoop from royal correspondent Victoria Arbiter about all of the glorious details surrounding the couple’s big day.

As fashion designers around the globe scramble to get a shot at consideration for creating the most anticipated wedding dress of the decade, Arbiter doesn’t rule out the divorcee wearing white as she walks down the aisle.

“It won't be an issue if Meghan's dress is white,” Arbiter says, addressing Markle’s two-year marriage to Trevor Engelson. “She was married before, it didn't work out. I don't think anyone would begrudge her a white dress. She may choose something different. I'd be surprised if she did because that would be making more of an issue with the divorce, rather than that just being something of her past that everyone has moved on from.”

Regardless of color, Arbiter says the [link

George and Charlotte Are Already Little Pros at This Whole Royal Tour Thing
Prince George and Princess Charlotte have only been on the planet a handful of years, but they've already got this royal tour thing down pat. The British royal family wrapped up their official visits to Poland and Germany on Friday, and not only did Charlotte prove that she can rock the hell out of her Uncle Harry's hand-me-down shoes, but she also had two very big milestones: her first diplomatic handshake and her first curtsy. George, on the other hand, showed off his adorable curiosity by peeking out of airplane windows, and we even got a glimpse of his signature unimpressed face when he touched down in Berlin on Wednesday.

The adorable 2-year-old has been the center of attention without even trying ever since they kicked off their trip. After staying close to mom, Kate Middleton, while getting off the plane in Poland on Monday (in her Uncle Harry's hand-me-down shoes, no less), she stopped to smell a bouquet of flowers when they touched down in Germany on Wednesday. And it was during that same arrival that Charlotte had a very big and sweet milestone: her first diplomatic handshake. In a video captured by Daily Mirror's royal correspondent Victoria Murphy, Charlotte is seen shaking hands with a German official.

Princess Charlotte Just Rocked the Hell Out of Her Uncle Harry's Hand-Me-Down Shoes
Princess Charlotte had us oohing and ahhing over her adorable debut in Poland this week, during which the 2-year-old stuck close to her mom, Kate Middleton, in a pretty floral dress and red flats. The shiny red shoes bear a striking resemblance to a pair that Harry wore back in 1986, complete with buckle strap, beige sole, and slight scuffing on the rounded toes. Of course, Harry and Charlotte have much more in common than strong footwear game - they're both a "spare to the heir" who will one day bond over playing backup to an older sibling who will one day take the throne. Just last month, Charlotte's big brother George also sported a look inspired by Uncle Harry; at the Trooping the Colour parade, the nearly 4-year-old prince was decked out in a white collared shirt and suspender getup that harks back to one worn by Harry at the

A Royal Match! Princess Charlotte Wears Uncle Harry’s 1986 Shoes in Poland
Princess Charlotte went shopping in her Uncle Harry’s closet for her first European trip.

The 2-year-old royal, who is in Poland and Germany this week with mom Princess Kate, dad Prince William and big brother Prince George, broke out a pair of Prince Harry‘s old shoes to make her entrance when landing in Warsaw Monday.

The red leather buckled shoes were seen on an almost 2-year-old Harry back in 1986, in a photo session with his mom Princess Diana and dad Prince Charles.

And after 30 years, the adorable royal hand-me-down is still in pretty good shape!

The new movie year has just gifted us with its first indisputable film fiasco. Don't you just love January – the official burial ground for Hollywood cinematic sins against art and entertainment. Ok, my expectations were low for Underworld: Blood Wars. But scraping bottom would be a step up for this fifth chapter in the series, which inexplicably retains a loyal box-office following.

While Princess Charlotte is busy following in mom Princess Kate's fashionable footsteps (recycling clothes like a pro!), 3-year-old Prince George is taking style cues from Uncle Harry. Wearing maroon shorts, navy blue knee-high socks and his first pair of "grown up" loafers at a playdate in Victoria, Canada, on Thursday, it was clear that Kate is still favoring throwback fashions, echoing a look that Prince Harry wore 27 years ago when he was just 4 years old. "It very much feels that they are following a family tradition, putting George in similar clothes to what Prince Harry and Prince William wore when they were younger,

The Royal Family Is Making Sure Princess Charlotte Has the Cutest First Christmas Ever
Prince William has already confirmed that Prince George will be "bouncing around like a rabbit" come Christmas morning, but a source tells E! exclusively that he and Kate Middleton are more than excited to make sure Princess Charlotte's first big holiday in their country home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk, is a special one. "The family can't wait to make a fuss of Princess Charlotte and, of course, Prince George," the source said. "[Uncle] James, like Uncle Harry, dotes on her so when it comes to gifts from the uncles, they are going to be a little spoiled." William and Kate will reportedly be treating George and Charlotte to stockings hung at the end of their beds, stuffed to the brim with toys and adorable little clothes, and although the proud parents usually attend Christmas Day lunch at Sandringham with the queen and the rest of the royal family, they will instead

Martha Thomases: Understanding Scott McCloud

  • Comicmix
If you haven’t read The Sculptor, stop reading this and go get yourself a copy immediately,

Need more persuasion? Okay, but you’re missing out on valuable time that could be spent reading this awesome book. I’ve been a fan of Scott’s since Zot because it was funny and human and had a villain named Art Deco. More people became fans when he published the brilliant Understanding Comics. There is no one who uses the graphic story medium to better effect than Scott McCloud.

The Sculptor showcases McCloud’s mastery of technique. His use of color is impeccable. The book is black and white with blue tones, giving the different scenes a variety of moods and weights. The way he uses overlapping word balloons reminds me of an Altman movie. The panel arrangements speed up time and slow it down, depending on the needs of the character.

Witness to Murder | Blu-ray Review

Available for the first time on Blu-ray or DVD and remastered in high definition is forgotten film noir Witness to Murder, a 1954 Barbara Stanwyck potboiler also starring George Sanders and Gary Merrill. As written by Chester Erskine (The Egg and I, 1947), the film feels like plenty of other narratives, though its frustrating contrivance of hysteria as dramatic tension places it squarely within a particular male dominated paradigm. In particular, the film feels eerily reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, which actually opened a month after this Roy Rowland directed venture, doomed to be overshadowed and quickly forgotten. But, magnificently photographed by John Alton, it’s a shadowy and angular motion picture, enjoyable for its considerable melodrama as a portrait of misinformed and misogynistic gender politics.

Cheryl Draper (Barbara Stanwyck) witnesses a young woman being murdered in the apartment complex adjacent to her own. She calls the police to report what she sees.
