Two-Time Oscar Winner Cooper on TCM: Pro-War 'York' and Eastwood-Narrated Doc

30 August 2015 4:06 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Gary Cooper movies on TCM: Cooper at his best and at his weakest Gary Cooper is Turner Classic Movies' “Summer Under the Stars” star today, Aug. 30, '15. Unfortunately, TCM isn't showing any Cooper movie premiere – despite the fact that most of his Paramount movies of the '20s and '30s remain unavailable. This evening's features are Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936), Sergeant York (1941), and Love in the Afternoon (1957). Mr. Deeds Goes to Town solidified Gary Cooper's stardom and helped to make Jean Arthur Columbia's top female star. The film is a tad overlong and, like every Frank Capra movie, it's also highly sentimental. What saves it from the Hell of Good Intentions is the acting of the two leads – Cooper and Arthur are both excellent – and of several supporting players. Directed by Howard Hawks, the jingoistic, pro-war Sergeant York was a huge box office hit, eventually earning Academy Award nominations in several categories, »

Timbaland to sample unreleased Marilyn Monroe track

21 August 2015 6:18 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Timbaland is to sample an unreleased Marilyn Monroe track. The 43-year-old record producer is sampling the late 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' actress' only unreleased track, a swing number titled 'Down Boy' 53 years after she died of an overdose. The song - which has never been heard before - was originally recorded for the 1953 movie but while her rendition of 'Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend' became a hit, 'Down Boy' was cut from the final edit. Timbaland - who produced Michael Jackson's second posthumous album 'Xscape' in 2014 - is now working on a modern version of the track after meeting up with the owner to the rights, Hollywood resident Jack Allen. Jack was just four when Marilyn died in 1962 but he became fascinated with classic Hollywood star as a photographer and TV executive in Los Angeles. He told The Sun newspaper: ''This is a beautiful song. Timbaland is working »

MGM's Lioness, the Epitome of Hollywood Superstardom, Has Her Day on TCM

10 August 2015 2:19 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Joan Crawford Movie Star Joan Crawford movies on TCM: Underrated actress, top star in several of her greatest roles If there was ever a professional who was utterly, completely, wholeheartedly dedicated to her work, Joan Crawford was it. Ambitious, driven, talented, smart, obsessive, calculating, she had whatever it took – and more – to reach the top and stay there. Nearly four decades after her death, Crawford, the star to end all stars, remains one of the iconic performers of the 20th century. Deservedly so, once you choose to bypass the Mommie Dearest inanity and focus on her film work. From the get-go, she was a capable actress; look for the hard-to-find silents The Understanding Heart (1927) and The Taxi Dancer (1927), and check her out in the more easily accessible The Unknown (1927) and Our Dancing Daughters (1928). By the early '30s, Joan Crawford had become a first-rate film actress, far more naturalistic than »

Marilyn Monroe: Nine Years of Stardom and a Legacy That Won’t Quit

5 August 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

August 5 marks the anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death in 1962. Few Hollywood stars have created such a powerful legacy based on such a small, brief output: starring roles in 11 films, released during a nine-year period.

Fox ran an ad in Daily Variety in 1952, the year Monroe starred in “Don’t Bother to Knock,” proclaiming her “a new star.” Studios often took out ads to promote contract players and 20th Century Fox was building her career, so the promo wasn’t unusual. However, in her case, the words sound more factual than hype.

Her big breakthrough occurred in 1953, when she starred in “Niagara,” “How to Marry a Millionaire” and “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” all for Fox. From that point until her death, at age 36, she was the hottest thing in Hollywood.

In “Conversations With Wilder,” director Billy Wilder told Cameron Crowe that he didn’t like working with her. In 1955’s “The Seven Year Itch, »

Rihanna Channels Marilyn Monroe in Pink Gloves & Pearls For Her New RiRi Fragrance—See the First Ad!

22 July 2015 9:18 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Seems like diamonds pearls are RiRi's best friend—at least in her new perfume ad! Rihanna took to Twitter on July 21 with the first ad for her latest fragrance, RiRi by Rihanna, and it's, well, RiRi like we've never seen her before. The singer stuns in the campaign image, of course, looking almost doll-like with insanely smooth waves, sky-high lashes and petal pink lips. "Ladies!!! It's about that time!!! Brand new fragrance coming.... "RiRi" #ThisisRiRi," the star wrote alongside the perfume peek. We also got a distinct Gentlemen Prefer Blondes vibe: From her voluminous pink gloves to the swath of pearls on her wrist, Rihanna seemingly reimagines the scene that made »

The Most Iconic Jewelry in the Movies

11 July 2015 1:13 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Alex Simon

Precious jewels have provided fodder for drama practically since drama was invented, with precious stones and trinkets used as plot devices in plays written as far back as 100 B.C. As man-made substitutes such as rhinestones, moissanite, and cubic zirconium started making the market for seemingly-precious stones more, well, precious, so did the real thing become more dramatic to seek out on film. Here are a few of the most sought after, revered and iconic pieces of jewelry dramatized for our viewing pleasure.

Heart of the Ocean—Titanic

James Cameron’s box office champ offered up one eye-popping set piece after the other, not the least of which was Kate Winslet’s greatest asset. Get your mind out of the gutter! We’re talking about the legendary Heart of the Ocean necklace worn by her character, Rose. Lore has it that the diamond was originally owned by »

Former child actor George 'Foghorn' Winslow dies, aged 69

22 June 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Former child actor George Winslow has died at the age of 69.

Born George Karl Wentzlaff, Winslow was best known for playing Marilyn Monroe's young admirer in 1953's Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and featured in other classic films of the era.

His longtime friend confirmed to the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat that he died of a heart attack on June 13 at his Northern California home.

Under the stage name George 'Foghorn' Winslow, he became known for his raspy voice and deadpan delivery, and landed roles opposite the likes of Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers.

His roles also included Monkey Business with Grant, and leading roles in My Pal Gus and The Rocket Man.

He retired from acting at the age of 12, before serving in the Navy during the Vietnam War. He retired from the Postal Service several years ago.

Marilyn Monroe Facts: 25 Things You Don't Know About the Hollywood Icon

29 May 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Lifetime's mini-series "The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe" debuts on May 30, prompting the question: What possible secrets can there still be about Marilyn Monroe?

Quite a few, apparently, from the identity of her birth father, to the nature of her fatal overdose at age 36 -- was it suicide, accident, or murder? In 2012, on the 50th anniversary of her death, Moviefone previously published "25 Things You Didn't Know About Marilyn Monroe." Turns out that list barely scratched the surface. Here, then, are 25 more.

1. Monroe's birth certificate from 1926 lists her birth name as Norma Jeane Mortenson. The last name was a misspelling of the surname of her mother's second husband, Martin Mortensen, who separated from Gladys before she became pregnant. Soon after, she reverted to her first married name, Baker, and gave that name to her daughter.

2. Gladys later told Norma Jeane that her father was Gladys' boss, Charles Gifford, who looked like »
