Marni Nixon (1930-2016)

25 July 2016 11:53 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that Marni Nixon, beloved voice of Hollywood's supersized musicals of the 50s and 60s has died of breast cancer at 86. It was a long and good and musical life, if never celebrated enough by the culture she gave so much to. It had been our long held dream to see her given an Honorary Oscar which must now be a dream unfulfilled. Because I don't have the words today, I thought I'd share a piece I wrote ten years ago on how special Marni Nixon was to me, a baby cinephile growing up with musicals as my favorite form of cinematic bliss.

Marni Nixon is my Kathy Selden

Toward the end of Singin' in the Rain (1952), which chronicles Hollywood's seismic shift from silent films to sound production, a hilariously dim and screechy movie star Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen) gets her comeuppance. »

How Jodie Mack's "Curses" Was Made

28 June 2016 7:06 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Jodie Mack's Curses (2016) is playing June 28 - July 27, 2016 on Mubi in most countries around the world.It's no secret that we're big, big fans of American animator (or is it "anti-animator"?) Jodie Mack, having covered many of her films when they play at festivals, interviewed her about her "rock concert" quartet of shorts, and showed her wonderful Blanket Statement #2: It's All or Nothing (2014) last year as part of Mubi's collaboration with the New York Film Festival.Now, we're delighted to present the world premiere of the artist's new short film, Curses, made for the Chicago band Roommate and their 2015 album, Make Like. Described by the filmmaker as an "odyssey of remnants" that "re-imagines a dream-sequence love," it was made by hand-cutting marbleized paper (also made by hand!) and includes a rotoscoped homage to one of the dances in the Broadway Melody Ballet sequence in Singin' in the Rain. »

Judy by the Numbers: "Be A Clown"

22 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Just as there are films that shine bright in a star's history, there are also films whose histories are controversial at best. The Pirate is an odd contradiction of a movie. As one of Judy Garland's most expensive films, it was also her first MGM bust. Released two years after childrearing had put Judy on hiatus, it was nonetheless stuck in preproduction for five years before that. While it landed Judy another hit song, the knockoff written four years later would become a classic. Though The Pirate was the loudest, brightest movie Judy had made to date, its most interesting sequences were left on the cutting room floor. What to do with The Pirate?

The Movie: The Pirate (1948, MGM) 

The Songwriter: Cole Porter

The Players: Judy Garland, Gene Kelly, The Nicholas Brothers, directed by Vincente Minnelli

The Story: The Pirate must have seemed cursed from the start. By the time Vincente Minnelli started filming, »

Cannes Review: 'Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds' Is a Touching Mother-Daughter Documentary

14 May 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Carrie Fisher has a life-sized Princess Leia sex doll in the attic of her house, but she can't figure out how it works. Her mother, "Singin' in the Rain" star Debbie Reynolds, once amassed the world's largest collection of movie memorabilia before she had to sell most of it in order to pay off her debt. These are two magnificent women who live in the shadows of their own legacies, surrounded by petrified images of their former selves. Fisher has been in the public eye since the day was born, and her tumultuous private life has always been an open book (two of them, actually), but neither she nor her mother have ever been seen quite as clearly as they are in the casually enthralling new documentary, "Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds."  Read More: Cannes Classics Highlights Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds and Women of Old Hollywood The »

Judy by the Numbers: "It's A Great Day for the Irish"

Anne Marie is tracking Judy Garland's career through musical numbers...

Have you heard the good news? April is Judy Garland month on TCM! Check your local listings to see the movies surrounding the numbers we've discussed, and the ones we haven't gotten to yet!

Before the end of 1940, young Judy Garland got two major kudos from Metro Goldwyn Mayer. First, her weekly salary was increased from $600 to $2,000. Second, MGM made her the top-billed star of another Freed Unit musical. No longer just Mickey Rooney's mooning gal pal, Judy Garland would finally get to play another leading role - in fact, in this movie she'd do it twice!

The Movie: Little Nellie Kelly (MGM 1940)

The Songwriter: Roger Edens

The Players: Judy Garland, George Murphy, Charles Winniger, Douglas McPhail, directed by Norman Taurog

The Story: Little Nellie Kelly was based on a hit George M. Cohan musical from 1922. However, any »

Merle Oberon films: From empress to duchess in 'Hotel.' Merle Oberon films: From starring to supporting roles Turner Classic Movies' Merle Oberon month comes to an end tonight, March 25, '16, with six movies: Désirée, Hotel, Deep in My Heart, Affectionately Yours, Berlin Express, and Night Song. Oberon's presence alone would have sufficed to make them all worth a look, but they have other qualities to recommend them as well. 'Désirée': First supporting role in two decades Directed by Henry Koster, best remembered for his Deanna Durbin musicals and the 1947 fantasy comedy The Bishop's Wife, Désirée (1954) is a sumptuous production that, thanks to its big-name cast, became a major box office hit upon its release. Marlon Brando is laughably miscast as Napoleon Bonaparte, while Jean Simmons plays the title role, the Corsican Conqueror's one-time fiancée Désirée Clary (later Queen of Sweden and Norway).

I Confess

23 January 2016 4:50 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

What's it all about, Alfie? The master of suspense goes in an unusual direction with this murder mystery with a Catholic background. And foreground. Actually, it's a regular guidebook for proper priest deportment, and it's so complex that we wonder if Hitchcock himself had a full grip on it. Montgomery Clift is extremely good atop a top-rank cast that includes Anne Baxter and Karl Malden. Rated less exciting by audiences, this is really one of Hitch's best. I Confess Blu-ray Warner Archive Collection 1953 / B&W / 1:37 flat Academy / 94 min. / Street Date February 16, 2016 / available through the WBshop / 17.95 Starring Montgomery Clift, Anne Baxter, Karl Malden, Brian Aherne, Roger Dann, Dolly Haas, Charles Andre, O.E.
